Pinch and swipe on the touchscreen the same way you would on a smartphone to zoom or move around in the image during preview. Attach a second, optional screen to operate the scanner with the main touchscreen and preview images using the second screen.
The Live Preview function uses a second matrix camera to present a live video view of the document position before scanning.

There are three possible positions to attach the touchscreen: attached to the scanner neck, attached to the side of the scanner closer to the front or attached to the side of the scanner closer to the back, where you can angle the monitor in various degrees. It can also be used unattached, lying flat next to the scanner. The picture above shows the three attached positions. Optionally, a separate preview screen can be mounted to the neck, if the main touch is on the side.

An integrated 21" 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.

Unique Book Cradle
v shape book cradle close-up

The unique magnetically coupled book cradle solution allows users to digitize books and documents A3 in size, by either laying them flat on the scanning bed at 180°or in the V-cradle, at an angle of 120° for gentle, protective handling of the source material. The two sides of the cradle are magnetically coupled so that the book fold can be moved easily in the center for optimal scan results.

Note the 3 gray buttons located on the front/center of the cradle. This allows for easy reach scanning as pages are being turned or held down. The buttons are Start, Scan and Send.
