KIC BookEdge Color Scanner/Copier

Scan, Copy, and Collate in a 2 x 2 ft. Floor Space

KBE-02

Slash paper and ink costs with the innovative,

KIC BookEdge self-serve scan and copy system!

Is your library floor space in short supply? Are there any low traffic areas in your library? Do you have special or satellite libraries? The small footprint of the KIC BookEdge is designed specifically for self-service walk-up scanning as a copier replacement solution in limited spaces and locations where heavier duty cycle KIC systems aren't practical.

Occupying less space than a floor standing copier and offering 12x17 inch book-edge scanning, KIC BookEdge provides the next best thing to face-up scanning in a form factor that's small enough to fit in the far corners of any library! And its cost is small too.

But don't let its size fool you. KIC BookEdge systems provide the same extensive capabilities as our heavier duty cycle KIC systems: fast scanning, image editing, 'SAVE' to a USB device, 'SEND' an email, FTP, copy, collate and print to a laser printer.

What's so special about KIC systems is that they enable students to enjoy unlimited fast and easy access to entire library collections, digitally. It's not often that a service becomes so popular with students so rapidly. It's fitting that KIC systems are frequently purchased using student technology funds.

Features and Benefits

The KIC BookEdge is the perfect choice for student walk-up scanning and copying in areas where space is a premium. It makes entire library collections available in digital form. The KIC BookEdge's clever design allows users to scan pages right up to the bound margin near the spine, without damaging books. The KIC BookEdge produces beautiful, full-color images at no additional cost over black & white images! Even searchable PDF's and text-to-speech (MP3 files) are a snap to create.

The KIC BookEdge was specifically designed to occupy the same space as a typical floor-standing photocopier. Replacing outmoded copiers in academic and research libraries is easy with KIC BookEdge's modern scanning, printing and interactive computerized touch screen technology. With the addition of a color laser printer, the KIC BookEdge provides the functionality of a color copier at a fraction of the cost.

  • Scan/copy up to 12x17 inch pages with a book-edge scanner that captures deep into the bookfold of books and bound serials
  • Create full color images and/or paper copies with a single touch
  • Review large electronic images at nearly full-size before printing copies
  • Electronically collate and print copies
  • Create searchable PDF, JPEG, TIFF, PNG and editable text files

Intuitive User Interface

KIC's revolutionary True 2-Touch user interface is so intuitive that even the most inexperienced users can immediately scan materials and save them on a USB thumb drive in minutes.

Ease-of-use is an essential feature of KIC. The "Scan" and "Save, Send or Print" buttons occupy a very large portion of the 17" touch screen. The Save button defaults to an output method that is selectable by the institution. If a flash drive is inserted, KIC detects this and the output button changes to indicate that it will save to the flash drive. Users can override the default output method by manually selecting one or more other methods of output.

  • KIC's flash drive port saves images immediately
  • Images can be sent directly to any email address
  • KIC supports local printers and print servers
  • Using a USB key, library staff can easily transfer files to interlibrary loan, electronic reserve or archives workspace on university file servers
  • Upload image files directly to an FTP server

K-11

Retrieving Scanned Images From KIC is Fast and Easy

Students and Faculty can Choose Between Many Methods of Output

  • USB Flash Drive
  • Email
  • Printer
  • E-Reserve & Course Curriculum
  • Archives & Preservation
  • FTP

K-12

KIC is also compatible with all standard copy card and coin-op devices. Since KIC transfers images to users' computers via flash drives, email & FTP, there need not be any costly expendables ... none, even for color! The library can opt to keep all revenue it collects.


K-13

The Hybrid Library

To fully earn the 'hybrid library' designation, a library's print collections must be available in digital format. KIC systems allow your students and faculty to select material for quick and easy self-serve digitization, providing a valuable conduit between your print collections and patron PCs.

KIC's self-serve digitize-on-demand capabilities leverage your library's most valuable assets. Digital images don't have the limitations of physical copies. They can instantly be shared with fellow researchers around the world via email, dramatically facilitating collaboration.


K-14

In case you didn't know ...

...what you can do with scanned images

Enhance Reports

Place books face-up on KIC's large bed and scan two pages at a time - much faster than flatbed scanners and copiers.

Use whole pages or clip selected pictures, graphs, text, etc. using the computer touch screen.

Save some or all scanned images to USB flash drive or send them to an email address.

View reports in a word processing program on a home or notebook computer. Drag desired images from a flash drive or email directly into a word processing program or save images to your computer desktop and use the 'insert picture' function.

Once images are imported into a word processing program, you may want to format the picture (e.g. select an alternate layout) and resize or reposition it.

For Study

Quickly scan many pages to take with you and study at your convenience in the comfort of your home.

Product Documentation

The cETLus Listing Mark is used for products going into the Canadian and US markets. Products with the cETLus mark have been examined and have passed tests determining compliance with device safety requirements. The standards for IT-equipment are UL 60950 for the US market and CSA.C22.2 No 60950 for the Canadian market.

The CE mark, meaning "European Conformity", formerly EC mark, is a mandatory conformity mark for products placed on the market in the European Economic Area (EEA). With the CE marking on a product the manufacturer ensures that the product conforms with the essential requirements of the applicable EC directives.

The FCC Declaration of Conformity or the FCC mark is a certification mark employed on electronic products manufactured or sold in the United States which certifies that the electromagnetic interference from the device is under limits approved by the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC label is found even on products sold outside the US territory, because they are either products manufactured in the US and had been exported, or they were manufactured in other nations which have US as a prime market (eg: Japan, China). This makes the FCC label recognizable worldwide even to people to whom the name of the agency Federal Communications Commission is not familiar.
