Committed to quality:
Fragile historical books, modern books, magazines, documents, files, or bounded materials – thanks to its automated conservational book cradle, the book2net Profi can handle a wide variety of items. It guarantees a particularly gentle original treatment and enables a simple scanning process.
Thanks to its high depth of field and the optical book fold optimization (BFO) specially integrated into our matrix sensor technology, the book2net Profi also guarantees constant image sharpness across the entire surface and delivers thus an excellent scan result even on uneven, wavy surfaces.
book2net HD Camera
The X71 not only sets new standards in the field of modern digital cameras but is also the heart of all our scanners. Our CMOS sensor technology is the critical 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 incredible scanning speed.
True Color Management
Color accurate directly from the camera: the proper color management is unique. Now from the camera, it is possible to generate precise color scans according to the color spaces SRGB, Adobe 1998 RGB, ECI RGB V1, and ECI RGB V2 and thus quickly meet all requirements of digitization guidelines, specifications, and standards.
The great advantage of True Color: 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.
LED Lighting Unit
Professional UV / IR and ozone-free lighting system. The highest conservation and ecological requirements are met with less than 2,500 lux light exposure and service life of over 50,000 operating hours. The Fresnel lenses specially developed for the book2net lighting units are a significant technological advantage over classic lighting units. They ensure perfect light distribution and illumination. Unwanted and annoying gradients and reflection effects that otherwise occur on very light or very dark surfaces and shiny materials are avoided.
Two operating modes:
1) Flash: The lamps light up slightly for the scan and then reduce their intensity 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 higher “lamp bias,” whereby the “brightening effect,” if it is perceived as annoying, is omitted.
Transparent Makrolon® Plate
The book2net Profi can optionally be supplied with a transparent, book-friendly Makrolon® pressure plate. The plate can be easily mounted and removed as required.
The focus is on ergonomics and ease of use. The possibility of placing a display in the user’s field of view was a customer request that we were happy to implement. Ease of use is increased, and both the scan preview and the results can be checked immediately in full-screen mode.
Optionally, MICRO BOX supplies this equipment with a workstation based on the latest and most modern components of Microsoft® and Intel; a PC optimized for fast transfer rates ensures scan and process speeds of less than 2.2 seconds.
