Book Scanners Bookeye 4V1A C35

Bookeye® 4 V1A-C35 – For Thick, Oversized Books

Digitization excellence and highest productivity

Bookeye 4 V1A-C35 is the professional solution for digitization projects that require high quality images at maximum productivity, while eliminating strenuous, repetitive tasks required of an operator to get the job done.

Bookeye 4 V1A-C35 scans originals up to A1 in size at high speeds, with the unique book cradle for books 35 cm thick. The scanner distinguishes three modes: fixed plate glass, without glass plate and with an automatic opening at 45 degrees.

Fully automatic operation, sensor controlled pressure

In Auto Mode, the scanning process is fully automatic. Sensors in the book cradle plates control the pressure. The book cradle plates are motor driven and deal with a book thickness of up to 35 cm (Alternatively there is a 50 cm book cradle available.)

Together with software packages such as Batch Scan Wizard, BCS-2, Opus FreeFlow and Goobi UCC, even the toughest requirements of a digitization project can be met.

Bookeye® 4 V1A-C35 Compliance

Image Access scanners are environmentally friendly, comply to the highest security standards and do not interfere with other devices. We have also made sure that no harmful radiation in the form of electromagnetic emission and UV or infrared light exists. Because these kinds of scanners are heavy production machines with inherent risks to the operator, no one should operate a scanner from a vendor who cannot provide at least an IEC/UL 60950 safety report.

Image Access scanners conform to the many national and international standards which are listed below. Our scanners have been tested and certified by independent laboratories and we can also provide test reports of each standard on paper upon request.

The Bookeye 4 V1A-C35 conforms to the following standards:
