The book2net Falcon is the smallest partner of our V-shape systems book2net Lizard and book2net Dragon and is used when collections in the format A6- to A4+ with a small opening angle are to be digitized. Designed for mobile use, it offers a high level of flexibility, especially in the area of decentralized digitization projects.

Dual camera system with two options:
2 x X41 cameras / 400 dpi
2 x X71 cameras / 800 dpi

• Variable scan areas: A6 – A4 +
• Physical resolution: 400 dpi / 800 dpi
• True color display
• Distortion-free
• Perfect linearity
• 0.3 sec. scanning time
• 2.2 sec. processing time (scanning + imaging + storage

V-shape book scanner for small formats from A6 up to A4: None is faster!

Freely selectable settings allow individual recording positions as well as standardized, productive work processes.
The book2net Falcon is designed for mobile use and therefore offers a high level of flexibility, especially in the area of decentralized digitization projects.

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.

V-shape glass plate

The V-shaped glass plate adapts gently to bound documents with a wavy surface or uneven binding. The high-quality, reflection-free and mitered museum glass guarantees precise, shadow-free images even in the critical book fold area. The lifting and pressing force can be specifically adapted to the respective requirements.
This sensitive control guarantees optimal protection of the originals as well as the greatest possible productivity.

Conservatory book cradle

The book cradle is specially designed for small-format books with sensitive binding that cannot be opened to 180° angle. The support surfaces can be moved and fixed individually in order to position the template in a stable and centered manner. Easily adjustable and lockable up to a maximum spine width of 150 mm. The layout area of 2 x 300 mm x 300 mm offers a high degree of flexibility for digitizing bound documents in the A6- to A4+ range.

LED lighting units with Fresnel lenses

The book2net Falcon is equipped with an LED lighting system that provides a stable color temperature during the scanning process and thus guarantees true color reproduction.
Thanks to the Fresnel lenses used, uniform illumination of the entire scanning area is guaranteed. The LED light sources are glare-free and UV / IR-free, so that there is no radiation exposure for the user in accordance with EN60825-1 norm. If old books and manuscripts are exposed to high light intensity, biochemical processes may start – depending on the length of time and light intensity – which lead to structural changes of paper, ink and paint and thus cause irreversible damage.
With conventional methods such as line sensor technology, which requires a light intensity of up to 14,000 lux, there is therefore a very high risk that valuable books can be damaged during digitization.

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.
