book2net X71 HD camera technology

Thanks to the parallel use of two high-resolution area sensors in combination with high-quality optics , the book2net Cobra achieves an unrivaled quality . Precious old books deserve special attention in order to show their beauty in their true light. Uneven and waved surfaces, special inks and paints – especially gold coatings, require more than standard lighting. For these special requirements, the book2net Cobra book scanner is equipped with an additional lighting system for the glare-free and shadow-free capturing of structured surfaces, a system that can be externally integrated, mounted or controlled. The LED lighting system offers a stable color temperature for perfect reproduction. Thanks to the Fresnel lenses , even illumination over the entire scan area is guaranteed.
