• Selectable variants: 400 dpi / 600 dpi
• 0.3 sec. scanning time (double-sided color @ 400 dpi)
• 2.2 sec. processing time (scanning + imaging + saving)
• 12 cm depth of field
• 12-14 cm height adjustment
• 10 cm spine width
• USB 3.0 interface
• Optimized for OCR applications thanks to reduced signal noise
High performance A2 book scanner for highest demands
The new book2net Ultra generation is presented in an elegant black design. The decision for the choice of color is not only dependent on aesthetic considerations, but also brings the user a decisive added value: The black housing prevents annoying back reflections and thus makes a significant contribution to the constant quality assurance of the scans!
We have optimized the functionality of the book2net Ultra to guarantee the best conditions for ergonomic work and a smooth workflow even under demanding production conditions:
Improvements in light control and anti-glare protection as well as an integrated monitor for scan previews increase user-friendliness significantly. However, the core of the new book2net Ultra is the innovative book cradle with electromagnetic, pressure-monitored glass plate operation, which offers the greatest possible variability and ease of use: Six different control modes allow the users to adjust the movements of the glass plate and the book cradle as well as the pressure control precisely to their requirements.
book2net High Resolution Camera
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.
True Color Management
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.
LED Lighting Units
Two operating modes:
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.
Electromagnetic Glass Plate Operation
The new electromagnetic glass plate operation with pressure monitoring offers unique variability and ease of use: Six different control modes allow the user to adjust the movements of the glass plate, the book cradle and the pressure control precisely to the requirements of the templates.
