Intuitive design simplifies scanning process

The design of the Crowley ODS 200 allows the book to lay face up as it captures the full page image without distortion (for books and documents up to 4” thick). It automatically crops and straightens each page scanned, digitally removes thumbs, and can create individual files for each image when scanning multiple documents in a single pass.
