When compromise is not an option


With our A1 double-head large-format scanner book2net Mosquito, we have developed a high-performance device that is specially designed for digitizing largeformat, bulky or particularly heavy originals such as magazine volumes and at the same time guarantees maximum gentle handling.

Thanks to the parallel use of two camera units, the book2net Mosquito achieves unrivaled quality among A1 book scanners and guarantees consistently top-quality scanning results.

Industrial precision components and standards ensure durability and sustainability and enable smooth, even guidance and adjustment of all moving elements. This means that the book cradle, glass plate and the LED lighting system can be precisely adjusted to a wide range of formats and originals in a matter of seconds.
