High-performance A2 book scanner for the highest demands
The book2net Ultra combines impressive productivity and quality with high ease of use. The book cradle, the glass plate and the LED lighting system can be precisely adjusted to a wide variety of formats and template structures in a matter of seconds, thus ensuring a smooth workflow.
Colour accurate directly from the camera: the true colour management is unique. Directly from the camera, it is possible to generate colour accurate scans according to the colour spaces SRGB, Adobe 1998 RGB, ECI RGB V1 and ECI RGB V2 and thus easily meet all requirements of digitization guidelines, specifications and standards.
The great advantage of True Colour: Unlike the creation of an ICC profile which is calculated by a “calibration software” using a 24-bit color scan of an X-Rite Color Checker, True Color uses the advantage of all calculations and adjustments in-house Imaging area of the camera with a color depth and analysis depth of 48 bits. Colors are captured even more precisely and signal noise is minimized.
The result: METAMORFOZE, FADGI and ISO / TS 19264-1: 2017 compliant scan results.
The X71 not only sets new standards in the field of modern digital cameras, it is also the heart of all our scanners. Our CMOS sensor technology is the key element of the system and enables high-resolution capturing of archive materials, books, cards, seals and objects of various sizes and structures. The X71 camera is characterized by first-class image quality, flexible handling and an unbelievable scan speed.
Professional UV / IR and ozone-free lighting system. With a light exposure of less than 2,500 lux and a service life of over 50,000 operating hours, the highest conservation and ecological requirements are met. The Fresnel lenses specially developed for the book2net lighting units are a major technological advantage over classic lighting units. They ensure perfect light distribution and illumination. Unwanted and annoying gradients and reflection effects that otherwise occur in very light or very dark surfaces and also with shiny materials are avoided.
Two operating modes:
1) Flash: The lamps light up slightly for the scan and then reduce their intensity again immediately after the scan. A heating up of the room, often annoying with permanent light, is avoided and at the same time the service life of the light units is extended considerably.
2) Continuous light: On request, it is possible to work with a constant light level, whereby the “brightening effect”, if it is perceived as annoying, is omitted.
Mode 1) 180° operation with firmly locked glass plate
This mode is always indispensable if you want to produce at high speed with variable pressure and the greatest possible ease of use. There is no alternative, especially for archive files and wavy documents. The biggest advantage is that the user has both hands free, for example to smooth or straighten templates, while the book cradle – operated by a motor with pressure control – is moved from below against the glass pressure.
Mode 2) Self-opening
This operating mode is particularly suitable for files and books up to approx. 10 cm thick that require little manual intervention, such as smoothing out pages or holding down wavy documents. Once the book cradle has been raised, the glass pressure button opens automatically after each scan and can be closed again by hand after turning the page. The production speed is also very high.
Mode 3) Motorized opening and closing (option)
This operating mode is an optional service. Equipped with a precision motor, the glass pressure switch can be closed with a foot switch and opens again automatically after the scan.
The opening angle can be adapted to the format size in order to use the system’s production speed as efficiently as possible.
