Study, Report, Research, Collaborate… Digitally

Kic Bookeye 4 is an indispensable tool for research, study and production of enhanced quality reports and papers with crystal clear color and black & white excerpts from books, magazines and very large journals. In addition, as a UDSA compliant digitize-on-demand system conveniently located among the stacks, KIC can be used as an ad hoc digitization station by Interlibrary Loan departments.

With its 600 dpi option, KIC Bookeye 4 systems are perfect as shared resources, capturing the finest details for digital and preservation.

The KIC Bookeye 4 can capture 20 book pager per minute for instant access on tablets, notebooks, smart devices and easy transfer to desktop PCs and servers. With a bed size more then 40% larger than its nearest competitor, Bookeye 4 is also the only high resolution scanner in the world that supports both v-cradle and flat modes, and modes, and can scan material as large as 24 x 17 inches.

Photocopiers, fax machines, PCs, monitors and keyboards clutter up otherwise beautiful libraries across America. KIC Bookeye 4 reverses that trend, replacing copiers and fax machines and adding scanning in a single machine with clean lines and efficient design.

Serving 70% of Students at US Universities

In the U.S. alone, KIC serves over four million students at the top "brick and mortar" (non-online) colleges and universities. With the introduction of the KIC BookEdge, KIC Click, and KIC Click Mini, KIC is now affordable for virtually all institutions of higher learning and full-service public libraries. Last decade, libraries typically 'added' several KICs, but since 2010 libraries have begun to replace their entire patron-use copier fleets with self-serve book scanning systems.

KIC Serves Over Half of Students at Universities

A True Digital Age Multifunction System for Academic & Public Libraries


Book Scanning

Students at academic libraries want speed, and DLSG offers the fastest book scanners on the market. Patrons at public libraries need simplicity, and KIC provides three of the simplest possible user interfaces, one exclusively for scanning, one exclusively for copying and one exclusively for faxing. And KIC's best-of-breed power user interface is only a touch away.

Book Scanning

Copier Replacement

Copier Replacement

While multifunction copiers are partly digital, they are big mechanical machines with big maintenance issues and tiny touch screens. As a copier replacement, KIC eliminates copier failure/service problems and provides very large touch screens and view screens that are larger still. Organizing (collating, clipping, rotating, etc.) pages on a huge touch screen is much easier than shuffling paper.

The digital age has steadily driven down the demand in libraries for paper copies to levels that make it increasingly difficult to justify copiers. KIC self-service scanning systems reduce copier use further — to the point that attaching a small laser or ink jet printer is sufficient. Scan Copy Fax KIC systems also handle much larger materials than copiers, and they scan books without damaging them. However, the most compelling benefit of KIC over copiers is KIC's speed, due mainly to its face-up scanning design, which is not only significantly faster, but far easier to use.

Self-Serve Fax

KIC's huge touch screen and larger view screen make faxing extra easy. Users can compose, review, clip, crop and change brightness and contrast of the pages of a fax before sending. KIC's step-by-step process is designed for easy operation by even the most timid users. All you need is an internet connection, and DLSG will provide the rest at a cost so low that fax revenue can pay for the KIC system in a few years or less.

Self-Serve Fax

KIC Payment System

Built-in Debit Payment System for KIC Systems

KIC Coin is a digital-age fee collection system included with all KIC systems. KIC Coin does not require that a coin box or a card reader be located next to each copier and fax machine. It works like a debit card, but no card is required. Patrons simply purchase any denomination they designate at the front desk. The library staff member prints a corresponding paper “KIC Coin” with barcode. The patron then places the KIC Coin on the KIC scanner and scans to begin charging the card with every scan thereafter.

Printing copies and faxing have per page costs. These costs are normally passed on to the user. With photocopiers, MFCs and other book scanning kiosks, additional hardware for collecting fees must be acquired. The costs of this additional hardware must be passed on to the user.

KIC Coins

KIC has a free, built-in method of charging users for copies and faxes. Simply print wallet-size “KIC Coins” on regular letter-sized paper in any denomination that you like, cut them out, and sell them to users at the circulation desk or wherever you collect fees for late book returns.

KIC Coins are Compatible with Copy Card & Cash Systems

All KIC self-serve book scanning kiosksystems are compatible with all standard copy card and coin-op devices. When KICs are introduced to a library, most patrons opt for digital output, so costly expendables are avoided, even for color! With KIC coins, the the library can keep all revenue it collects.

Beautiful Images – Fast and Easy,
and Nondestructive

Face-Up Scanning is Faster

KIC Bookeye 4 walk-up scanning stations are face-up scanners that save a lot of time and reduce book spine damage because they capture two face-up pages of a book with each scan and do not require the user to flip the book twice for each page. KIC analyzes each image, and automatically splits it into two separate images. In addition, black edges are automatically removed and the content is straightened, producing clean, professional looking images - important for electronic reserves, course curriculum materials and research reports. These automatic image treatment functions also save a lot of faculty, administrator, and student time.

Thick Books...No Problem

KIC Click handles thick books beautifully. Text is clear and undistorted. KIC automatically adds margins for print-ready image quality.

Capture Area Comparison

The capture area of copiers is about half that of KIC Bookeye 4 while the capture area of typical consumer scanners is smaller still. With a 18 X 24 inch capture area, KIC Bookeye 4 captures it all!

KIC Bookeye 4

With the view screen on the side, the KIC Bookeye 4 neck provides an ideal bookstop for scanning very large reference books. KIC True 2 Touch provides full rotation capabilities so that you can scan in the orientation that suits you best.

The KIC Bookeye 4 V2's 600dpi Option

With its 600dpi option, KIC Bookeye 4 is the only true preservation quality book scanner that's also ideal for self-service.

To capture moving objects, digital cameras must use array CCDs, which capture all parts of the object at the same instant. That's why affordable digital cameras have fewer than 50 megapixels. And those pixels must be further divided into red, green and blue sub-pixels.

Since books don't move while being scanned, the KIC Bookeye 4 is able to utilize linear CCD technology to produce ultra-clear images with astounding 140 megapixels. Each pixel in a linear CCD includes full red, green and blue sub-pixels.

KIC Scanner scanning book

However, high resolution scanning is meaningless if the lens system does not produce highly focused images. Since ultra-high resolution "spy satellite" lenses are quite expensive, the KIC Bookeye 4 scans from left to right, allowing it to follow the curve of an open book and maintain excellent focus, whether in V-mode or flat mode.

The KIC Bookeye 4's left-to-right scanning allows it to follow the contours of virtually any book, producing better 600 dpi images than other book scanners that claim to produce 600 dpi images.

Your Choice : Scan Face-Down or Face-Up

Faster is also Easier

The following photo sequences show the reason that face-down scanning system are typically 1/3 the speed of face-up systems. The book flipping necessary to scan a book on a face-down scanner like the KIC BookEdge is shown in the photo sequence below. It's a workout both for the book and the patron.

The ergonomic design of the face-up scanning systems involves only the basic movement required to set a book down and turn a page.

Face-up book scanning is far easier on both patrons and books and quite a bit faster than face-down scanning.

Scanning books face-up makes it much easier to keep track of what pages you've scanned. With KIC Click, Click Mini and other face-up scanners, books stay face up, so you can see what you're scanning as you scan it. This extra visibility eliminates the age old problem of skipping pages and scanning pages out of order which can occur with face-down scanners.

The sequence above shows just how much work is required to use a face-down scanner to scan multiple pages.

In contrast, the sequence on the left shows the relative speed and ease of face-up scanning systems that do not require the user to flip over the book being scanned. Once placing the book, the user simply turns pages and presses the scan button (or foot pedal) to scan two pages at a time.

True 2 Touch™ User Interface

Ease-of-use is a central feature of KIC. Its large, 22 inch touch screen and its large "Scan" and "Save, Send or Print" buttons that occupy a very large portion of the touch screen clearly convey how easy KIC is to use. The Save button defaults to an output method and file format 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.

Bookeye 4 with Tabletop

KIC Bookeye 4's high speed is derived as much from its ultra-simple, true two-touch interface as from its face-up design that obviates the need to flip books over and over again during the capture process.

The tabletop model KIC Bookeye 4 has all the True 2 Touch capabilities of the full-size KIC. It has its own tabletop version of the SmartDock, and of course, an ADF scanner can be placed anywhere on the table. ADA compliance is achieved by purchasing a table with a 30 inch clearance to the floor and a 31 inch height.

KIC Bookeye 4's elegant design puts the full KIC self-serve digitization functionality into a compact and appealing space. Its 17" touch screen and large preview screen and capture surface are at the perfect height for wheelchair access. The KIC Bookeye 4 also offers an optional desktop configuration with a single 22" touch/preview display.

KIC's True 2 Touch™ User Interface, Especially Forgiving for Beginners

  • KIC is very agile, and allows the user to jump from just about anywhere in the touch screen system to just about anywhere else, directly and usually with a single touch. This modern, 'modeless' design is easier to use, but difficult to create.

  • KIC's large buttons and controls are easy to use, even for people with unsteady hands.

  • KIC gradually expands and contracts controls such as brightness, con- trast and DPI so users can easily follow their screen activity

  • KIC doesn't delete original images when you clip a photo or excerpt of text unless you tell it to.

  • KIC lets you output to many different destinations in a single session.

  • Once you've scanned a document, you can change your mind as to where you would like it to output. For example, you may have wanted to save to USB, but learned your USB drive is full. Or you may scan so much that it exceeds your email limit. Or after scanning and collating a mass of research, you decide that you want to share the research with others.

Two Large Screens for Simplicity & Power

It’s easy to undervalue screen size. For 20 years, all cellphone makers relentlessly pursued smaller and smaller screens until very recently when one company reversed that trend. They realized that people want the largest screen that will fi t in their pocket/purse and hand. This is because display screens are our window to the digital world, and touch screens give us control over that world.

As big as self-serve scanning systems are, it makes sense to have a very large touch screen. And with the low prices for high quality displays, it is compelling to add a separate display screen. In 2002, DLSG realized this, when the first KIC system was designed. Today, with nearly 10 years more experience than any other vendor, DLSG has the most understandable, easy to use and powerful user interface for self-serve book scanning, and it’s based on dual screens.

The view screen shows very large, clear images of what you’ve scanned, allowing the touch screen to have big, easy to understand buttons and other controls.

Display screens are our portals into the digital world, and touch screens are the easiest way to control that world. That’s why DLSG provides large, 24 inch, full HD displays and equally large touch screens with most of its KIC systems.

KIC Bookeye vs. Copiers – How KIC Compares

Copiers are Outmoded

Since the first KIC was delivered to an academic library in 2004, the days of photocopiers for patron use in academic libraries and even public libraries were numbered. And now with the rapid explosion of tablet computers and electronic readers, the demand in academic libraries for electronic copies has substantially outstripped the demand for printed copies. The demand for electronic copies in public libraries is also reaching a tipping point.

The ability to capture virtually unlimited numbers of pages of research into a tablet or electronic reader and search through that material on the Internet with a tablet, eReader or notebook PC that can be used just about anywhere is highly convenient and immensely valuable. In this digital age, academic libraries are compelled to go hybrid for three reasons: 1) the high demand for digital content; 2) their existing print collections contain vast amounts of information that cannot be found on the Internet; and 3) students are receptive to the price of electronic copies - typically free.

So how do the costs of KIC systems compare with those of photo copiers? There are three main factors that keep the cost of photo- copies high: 1) each copy requires paper, toner and ink; 2) photo-copiers require a lot of maintenance due to the number of moving parts; and 3) all major photocopier brands use a distributed service model.

In contrast, these costs are lower for KIC because KIC has split the scan/copy functions into three separate machines, choosing the best of breed for each. As a result, KIC offers the best book scanners by themselves or with a loose-leaf paper (ADF) scanner. Virtually any off-the-shelf laser or inkjet printer can be added to any KIC system, so you can optimize costs and speeds, and offer affordable color.

KIC White Printer

KIC Bookeye 4 Scanners vs. Copiers

This graph compares the total costs of one color KIC Bookeye 4 system with three color copiers and with three black and white copiers. Both copiers are the kinds typically seen in academic libraries. One KIC Bookeye 4 is compared with three copiers because its face-up operation yields well over two times the performance of a typical copier. The costs are broken into three main areas: equipment and maintenance, consumables, and patron usage time. With KIC, electronic output is assumed to be preferred over print 90% of the time. That ratio has ranged from 75-95% electronic in 2012, but is certain to rise in the future

Usage Rate of 150,000 pages per year
The KIC numbers above represent a five-year saving in excess of $143,000!

No More Book Spine Damage!

Thick books with stiff spines and content that runs deep into the bookfold are often damaged when copied. KIC Bookeye 4 easily captures content without damaging book spines.

KIC automatically removes black edges, straightens content, and produces clean, professional looking images – important for electronic reserves, course curriculum materials and research reports. These automatic image treatment functions also save a lot of administrator, faculty, and student time.

No-copiers

Thick Books...No Problem

KIC Bookeye 4 handles thick books beautifully. Its contour-finding laser allows it to flatten even the most curved books and produce text that is clear and undistorted. KIC automatically adds margins for print-ready image quality.

KIC Bookeye Scans 3 Times Faster

Statistics from five million scanning sessions across America revealed a median session length of 23 pages. So, most of the time spent during a KIC session is spent scanning. Face up scanning has been proven to be three times faster than face down scanning. So why is speed so important

  • It's economical. One KIC Bookeye can replace multiple copiers or other face-down scanning machines.
  • It gives patrons another reason to visit your library.
  • It's green. The faster it is, the more use it will get and the less the copier will be used.

Color Images are Free

In the digital world, there is no paper, toner or ink, so libraries rarely charge for images, whether black and white or color.

Paint for printer

Color Copies for Less

Over the years, many libraries experimented with color copiers, but could never find a formulathat worked. If the fees were low, patrons would copy materials with so much color that the library would spend more on ink than the fees they were collecting. If the fees were too high, the usage would be so low that the cost of the machine couldn't be justified.

KIC calculates the amount of color in an image before it is printed. So the fee for copies with a little bit of color can be the same as the fee for black and white copies. If a copy has a lot of color, the fee can be increased in proportion to the cost of the color ink or toner. This wonderful feature should be a simple, easy byproduct of the digital age, and it is with KIC.

Girl in Library

The Hybrid Library

To fully earn the 'hybrid library' designation, a library's existing 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 tablets, PCs, eReaders and smart devices.

KIC's self-serve digitize-on-demand capabilities leverage your library's most valuable assets - its print collections.

Digital images don't have the limitations of physical copies. They can instantly be shared with fellow researchers around the world via email or Cloud, dramatically facilitating collaboration.

KIC avoids the digital rights management conundrum. Each digitization is for a single use, but thousands of patrons can digitize content from the same book, yet preserve the book’s spine.

Resource Sharing

We know the importance of resource sharing. To help squeeze more value out of your investment, KIC can be configured to support the BSCAN Interlibrary Loan system, the Opus Digitization Workflow system, and general ad hoc scanning.

Use a USB flash drive to enable other types of scanning at a KIC station and temporarily access shared folders on a network. When you unplug the USB, the KIC station automatically returns to its regular self-serve scanning station functionality.

Premium Maintenance Plan

Image Access has an unmatched service and support record. It is impossible to afford ably provide service personnel living in every city and town across America that are highly trained on the very special technologies needed by libraries. Instead, DLSG designs remote serviceability into its products and has perfected remote diagnosis and when possible, repair.

The resulting savings allows DLSG to frequently and promptly provide loaner/swap-out equipment and to go on site whenever necessary to maintain and repair equipment, minimizing interruptions in service for your patrons.

KIC Flash memory

For general purpose scanning by administrators and faculty, simply write a department password file to a flash drive. When a user plugs in the USB ‘key’, KIC recognizes the password and allows the user to save scanned images to shared folders.
