About the ScannX Overhead Book Scanner
The Scannx Overhead Book Scanner combines the inspired, innovative CZUR scanning technology custom-integrated with the award-winning ScannX Book ScanCenter software to streamline book scanning to page turning. The solution automatically creates flat scans from curved books, enables glossy prints to be scanned without glare or reflection, scans to email, USB, print, and cloud. The software also provides tools for the visually impaired, and offers options to fax, translate, and print from a mobile device. Flexible in design from the ground up, it enables users to control the scanner using a touch screen, a hand button, or a foot pedal, while scanning entire pages at the ultra-fast rate of 1.5 seconds – including dual-facing pages of a book or A3-size documents. ScannX also developed a custom Security Stand that protects the CZUR scanner when it’s used in public settings, and an optional SmartCradle to handle thicker books.
