Book Scanning

In March 2007, Imagetek launched a new specialist high quality book scanning service to accommodate bound volumes up to A1 + size (594mm x 841mm and possibly larger ) in black/white or full colour. This service is based around a Bookeye 3 A1 scanner manufactured by ImageWare in Germany and utilises their versatile BCS2 software.

  • Although the Bookeye 3 scanner will normally be based at our Honiton head office, it can be dismantled and transported to clients' premises together with a full self-supporting book cradle and top glass to minimise page curvature during image capture. Our staff can then undertake the digital conversion of valuable archive material on-site without incurring any of the potential risks of damage or loss by transporting such material to an offsite location.

  • This mobile service could be of considerable interest to Record Offices, Libraries, Church and Cemetery Archives, Cathedrals, Country Houses, Universities etc. There is often a requirement for high quality colour scanning of larger size bound books, maps and other documents of legal, historical or scientific interest but where the volume of work is inadequate to cost-justify acquisition of a suitable scanner for that site alone.

    This service also opens up new opportunities for cost-effective revenue generation for budget-strapped organisations as digital copies of original material can be made available for resale to visitors or researchers without jeopardising the condition or security of the original source media.

    Following further success in the book and large format archive scanning market, a Zeutschel 10000 A1 scanning system (complete with automatic glass booktable and advanced software) was acquired in October 2009.
