Why ST BookScan Center?

  • Shadow Elimination Element (SEE) technology
    Book spine shadow and distorted text associated with traditional copying is distracting and causes errors when creating PDFs from the scanned material. Thanks to this patented technology, book pages lay completely flat on the scanning bed and allow the object to be scanned right up to the spine of the book. The result is clear images with no spine shadow.
  • Easy to Use – No Training Necessary
    The ST BookScan Center is simple to use. The touch screen guides patrons through each step in the scanning process. No training or librarian’s help is needed.
    Productivity and Performance
    Scan 12”x17” materials at a resolution of 300 DPI color mode in 2.5 sec, minimizing wait time. This is the fastest archival scanning in its class, allowing more patrons to use the system during busy hours.
  • Quality
  • Integrated imaging technology specially designed for book and document scanning ensures the ST BookScan Center will produce high quality images of books, bound materials and documents.

Automatic Sheet Feed Duplex Color Page Scanner – A smart add-on for the ST BookScan Center
The PS 406U is a 40 page per minute, duplex color document scanner that is not only fast, it’s reliable and cost effective. The BookScan Center’s Touch Screen and Kiosk software is completely integrated and compatible for seamless operation with the Book Scanner. The result is a total scanning solution to replace old copier technology with a color digital scanning, copying, and printing solution.

Pay-per-Scan and Multiple Output Options
