With this new member of the Bookeye family, Image Access placed an emphasis on developing a scanner which is compact, easy to operate and competitively priced; to bring high end professional scanning to an even larger population of users. The efficient Bookeye 4 V3 digitizes source material such as bound documents at high speeds in up to 400 dpi optical resolution and formats up to DIN A3.
Over 17 years of electronic, optical and mechanical engineering experience went into the creation and manufacture of the Bookeye 4 models. The clever mirror mechanism captures the document precisely from edge to edge, whether it is a flat document or a book open at an angle of 120 degrees.
The V-shaped book cradle was optimized to reduce the risk of damage to book spines and binding during digitization. The book cradle holds the open book at an angle of 120 degrees; enough to effectively scan the contents of a page, while gently preserving the original subject matter.
Bookeye 4 V3 has all the advantages of a more expensive standalone device. Outfitted with an integrated color touchscreen and monitor, Bookeye 4 V3 can reach unrivaled scanning speeds and process large volumes of data independent of any external peripheral devices – a typical feature of all Image Access scanners.
It takes approximately 1.1 seconds for the Bookeye 4 V3 to capture and process the images of two pages of a DIN A3 sized book scanned at 200 dpi optical resolution. Once the image is on the screen, modifications can be made to scan parameters such as brightness, color or contrast without having to rescan. Users operate the system intuitively, guided by clear and well structured menu commands on the touchscreen. Scanned images can be saved to a USB flash drive, sent via email, printed on a connected or network printer, or uploaded to an FTP Server or Cloud.
Bookeye 4 V3's solid build, innovative features and competitive pricing make it an ideal book copier for large groups of users; for example, in a university library. Some of the advantages of using a Bookeye 4 instead of a standard copier include the Bookeye's built-in book cradle for gently handling bound materials, its speed and simplicity of operation, and the fact that the resulting digital images substantially reduce, and in most cases eliminate, the need to print scanned material.

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 cETLus Listing Mark is used for products going into the Canadian (shown by the "c" in the mark) and US market (shown by the "us" in the mark). Products with the cETLus mark have been examinated and successfully passed tests according the requirements for device safety. The standards for IT-equipment are UL 60950-1 for the US market and CAN/CSA C22.2 No. 60950-1 for the Canadian market.
The ETL-EU Listing Mark is used for products going into the European market (shown by the "EU" in the mark).Products with the ETL-EU mark have been examined and successfully passed tests according the requirements for device safety. The standards for IT equipment are IEC 60950-1 and EN 60950-1, or the new standards (from 2014) IEC 62368-1 and EN 62368.
The China Compulsory Certificate (CCC mark) is a compulsory safety mark for a wide range of products imported and sold in the Chinese market. It became effective on August 1, 2003, when China became a member of the WTO (World Trade Organisation). The CCC mark is required for both Chinese manufactured and foreign imported merchandise. The CCC certificate must be renewed annually as part of a follow-up certification which includes a factory audit.
