Book Scan Bureau has been established to revolutionise the digital recreation of documents, journals and books, releasing them from the confines of libraries or bringing them back from out of print oblivion. It's a concept we've called "bring books to life" and its the fastest and most cost-effective solution ever created!
In a world where digitisation is the primary vehicle of communication and knowledge sharing, the content of more than 600 years of backlog is being held captive between the covers of billions of books.
Book Scan Bureau is the key to release this huge knowledge base and is available to you today.
At the heart of Book Scan Bureau is the worlds fastest automated book scanner. Capable of capturing a massive 3000 pages per hour, the book rests gently in the SmartCradle™ dynamic book handler, which keeps the book open at exactly 110 degrees thus providing low-stress support for rare and fragile books. This means there is no need for de-binding thereby preserving the integrity of the original documents.
The SureTurn™ robotic arm uses an adjustable vacuum system to gently pick up and turn one page at a time. As the pages are gently turned, two Canon 1Ds MKIII 21.1 megapixel digital cameras in full 24 bit colour in a fraction of a second; one for left-side pages and one for right-side pages. The images can be captured at 325 or 400 dpi resolution with superior sharpness and excellent colour fidelity. 500 and 600 dpi options are available for smaller books.
Book Scan Bureau offers you the fastest, most gentle and most cost effective innovative scanning solution in the world.
