V-shape scanner

V-shape scanners are special book scanners whose book cradle can be adjusted to an opening angle smaller than 180° to a V-shaped support form to ensure the gentle capturing for particularly valuable or sensitive bound books and documents that can only be digitized at a small opening angle.

book2net offers a wide range of V-scanners − from mobile tabletop devices to high-performance scanners with semi-robotics.

Benefit from our book scanners with the latest CMOS sensor technology, as they combine highest quality with high performance, versatility and ease of use.

With our V-shape scanners you can scan books in various formats from A1 to A6, from large format to miniature books; always conforming to Metamorfoze, FADGI and ISO/TS 19264-1:2017 standards.

Our V-shape scanners are specifically designed for the gentlest handling of delicate, valuable and rare books, especially illuminated manuscripts and incunabula. Therefore, they provide special components to make digitization as gentle as possible:

  • Innovative CMOS sensor technology for high-quality, high-speed imaging
  • V-shaped, conservation book cradle with spine release and special coating as desired
  • V-shaped, easy-to-operate and lockable glass plate (for systems with semi-robotics with precision-guided linear drive)
  • Our semi-robotic systems (such as book2net Cobra and Dragon) feature freely selectable fully automatic, semi-automatic or manual book rocker and glass needle pressure operation options.
  • Smooth and adaptable LED lighting system to prevent damage from high light intensity
  • User-friendly software with modules for live preview and programmable scan processes ensure a smooth workflow

Vignetting

In photographic technology, optical vignetting (edge decoration) is an effect that may be wanted in artistic photography, but is not desired when digitizing documents, which require a true-to-original capturing. Vignetting is essentially a decrease in brightness towards the edge area of the image, which is caused by the light guidance through the objective and the axially arranged openings connected to it.

The resulting images are significantly darker due to the drop in light from the edge and mostly the “lighter” center of the image is shown in a circle.

In order to avoid this effect with our scanners, we work with special lenses in which this effect has already been corrected, unlike conventional camera lenses. Subsequent image manipulation or correction using software is therefore not necessary.

Due to lack of optical adjustment, the edge of the camera sensor cannot be exposed.

V lambda curve

The V lambda curve is a luminous efficiency function or luminosity function describing the average spectral sensitivity of the human eye, which it perceives in daylight. The visible spectral range from 380 to 780 nanometers is perceived as light in the human eye.
