Digitization Excellence and High Productivity

The flagship in the Bookeye® 4 family of book scanners is the Bookeye® 4 V1A book scanner. Scanning A1+ formats at 600 dpi scanner resolution, the Bookeye® 4 V1A features an automatic book cradle with up to 4" (10 cm) height adjustment, a glass plate that opens automatically and of course the 140 degree V-book cradle.

Bookeye® 4 V1A is the world`s only working A1+ overhead book scanner that accommodates both flat documents - with or without the glass plate; as well as large, fragile bound documents, using the protective V cradle.

In libraries, archives and other public institutions, the Bookeye® 4 V1A Kiosk is is suitable for digitization projects that require high quality and maximum productivity even in 24/7 operation.


Bookeye 4 V1A Professional Edition

Motorized Book Cradle
V1A motorized cradle close up

The automatic motorized book cradle with up to 4" (10 cm) height adjustment is programmable for the thickness of a book. Set it once and scan the book without having to constantly control the position of each cradle and the pressure on the book to the glass plate.

Glass Plate

The glass plate is ideal for scanning in flat mode with very thick books. The glass plate applies the ideal amount of pressure to the source material without damaging it, assisting in flattening the curve of the book fold.

27" 4K Touch Screen

An integrated 27" Touchscreen allows the operator to control image quality and make some modifications on the fly. Scanned images can be output to USB, eMail, network, printer or on a mobile device like an iPad or Anrdoid tablet.

The Scan 2 Photoshop Plug-in
Photoshop plug-in logo

The new plug-in Scan2PS for Adobe® Photoshop® software is particularly suitable for the art sector, but also for any applications that involve image editing. The plugin exports and saves the scanned images either as a JPEG or TIFF file directly into the program. This saves an enormous amount of time and guarantees a high document throughput. Images can be scanned at resolutions up to 600 optical dpi, to produce digital images of the highest quality and with color accuracy.

Scan2PS takes advantage of the extensive capabilities of Scan2Net® scanners; including automatic size detection, crop and deskew, image splitting, color management and outputs in color, grayscale and black and white; to name just a few of the standard functions and features. It complements and extends the patented Scan2Net® technology that powers all Image Access scanners. The plug-in can be used on Adobe Photoshop software versions off CS6 and the Creative Cloud® and is available for customers to download free of charge in the Customer Service Portal. There you will also find a short installation instruction, which we recommend you read before installing.

The Scan2Net platform

The Scan2Net platform is the technological foundation of all WideTEK and Bookeye scanners from Image Access. The platform replaces the proprietary scanner drivers and software that traditional scanners require with the fastest common, nonproprietary inter-device connection available: TCP/IP over Ethernet. With network interface speeds much higher than USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 scanners, Scan2Netl devices are able to reach unrivaled performance at extremely low connectivity cost.

Scan2Net scanners feature a 64bit Linux based operating system, dedicated to scanner specific imaging and mechanical control tasks, maximizing scanning speeds and performance.

State of the Art Illumination

State of the art illumination using bright white LEDs guarantees long lifetime and a low cost of ownership, since there are practically no consumables necessary over the life of the product. Cutting edge camera technology, with a dust-protected, fully sealed camera box holding CCD systems that use a patented stitching procedure, delivers up to 600 dpi scanner resolution.

Scan Directly to TWO USB 3 ports

USB Close-up
