ScannX Overhead Book Scanner 1800

The Perfect Library Book Scanner

ScannX Overhead Scanner 1800 delivers a powerful, affordable, easy-to-use book scanning solution for libraries. With each scan, this book scanning solution automatically orients and crops with smart tilt correction, flattens curved book pages, removes the user’s thumbs, and separates the left page from the right page. The end result? The library book scanner that delivers perfect scans every time.
 
As powerful as it is, this state-of-the-art scanner solution also makes it easy for everyone to use it. 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 6 seconds – including dual-facing pages of a book or A3-size documents. 

Key Features
  • Ultra-fast scans in six seconds per page, with no pre-scan required

Security Stand
ScannX Overhead Book Scanners ships with a custom security stand manufactured by ScannX to protect the scanner from theft in high-traffic areas. It is easily installed in minutes, fits the scanner perfectly, and can be attached to a table for further protection.
 
Accessibility
ScannX designs its products with accessibility built-in from the ground up. The touchscreen interface is designed for ultimate ease-of-use and includes contrast and magnifying tools for the visually impaired. Audio narration is built in. And the selection of scan controls includes a simple touch on the display, a desktop button for the hand, or a foot pedal to keep the hands free.
 
Keep Your Library Green
The system also helps you meet your environmental goals by allowing your scans to be sent to or stored on a variety of media, rather than printing. The Book ScanCenter Standard Edition software includes output to email, Google Drive, mobile devices, network, print, USB drive, and Wepa. Add-on options include Article Exchange, Box, Dropbox, fax, ILLiad, Odyssey, Office 365, OneDrive, print from cloud or USB drive, print from mobile device, Tipasa, and WorldShare ILL. Translation into multiple languages is also available.
