A1 large format planetary scanner to optimize your workflow

The mass digitization of large-format books and documents is associated with a high throughput volume. On the one hand, this requires high productivity, on the other hand it also requires the greatest possible relief for the user at the workplace. For this reason, we placed particular emphasis on streamlining the workflow when developing book2net Flash.

The X71 not only sets new standards in the field of modern digital cameras, it is also the heart of all our scanners. Our CMOS sensor technology is the key element of the system and enables high-resolution capturing of archive materials, books, cards, seals and objects of various sizes and structures. The X71 camera is characterized by first-class image quality, flexible handling and an incredible scanning speed.

Professional UV / IR and ozone free lighting system. With a light exposure of less than 2,500 lux and a service life of over 50,000 operating hours, the highest conservation and ecological requirements are met. The Fresnel lenses specially developed for the book2net lighting units are a major technological advantage over classic lighting units. They ensure perfect light distribution and illumination. Unwanted and annoying gradients and reflection effects that otherwise occur in very light or very dark surfaces and also with shiny materials are avoided.

Two operating modes:
1) Flash: The lamps light up slightly for the scan and then reduce their intensity again immediately after the scan. A heating up of the room, often annoying with permanent light, is avoided and at the same time the service life of the light units is extended considerably.

2) Continuous light: On request, it is possible to work with a higher “lamp bias”, whereby the “brightening effect”, if it is perceived as annoying, is omitted.

Color accurate directly from the camera: the true color management is unique. Directly from the camera, it is possible to generate color accurate scans according to the color spaces SRGB, Adobe 1998 RGB, ECI RGB V1 and ECI RGB V2 and thus easily meet all requirements of digitization guidelines, specifications and standards.

The great advantage of True Color: Unlike the creation of an ICC profile which is calculated by a “calibration software” using a 24-bit color scan of an X-Rite Color Checker, True Color uses the advantage of all calculations and adjustments in-house Imaging area of the camera with a color depth and analysis depth of 48 bits. Colors are captured even more precisely and signal noise is minimized.

The result: METAMORFOZE, FADGI and ISO / TS 19264-1: 2017 compliant scan results.

Every book is unique and of different thicknesses, which is why height adjustment using a book cradle is absolutely necessary for true-to-scale digitization. Thanks to its dual laser system, the book2net flash can be set to the optimal focus level within seconds.

The self-opening glass plate guarantees a comfortable work process for hours. It can be easily locked if you want to work without pressure on the glass. Since the incidence of light remains constant even when working without pressure on the glass, there is no need for a new white or color adjustment when the plate is used again.
