Book Scanners

Large Format Book Scanners

Large format book scanners are perfect for digitizing bound documents and books. These scanners allow the operator to digitize sensitive, fragile, and rare documents, pamphlets, and books without causing any damage to the originals during the process. The documents are not fed through a scanner, so brittle items like newspapers or historical documents will not be put at risk during the scanning procedure. Large format book scanners also have a very wide color gamut and high optical resolution, also making them great scanners for photos, graphic artwork, and even paintings.

FAQs

Do I need to calibrate my Bookeye scanner?

If properly set up, your scanner should not need much calibration. Yet if you notice a degradation in the quality of your scans, a calibration may be necessary.

How do I calibrate the scanner?

The Bookeye scanner allows its operators to perform most calibrations directly from the touchscreen. Within the Scan2Net application, access the setup menu by quickly tapping the time and date field 10 times or more in 10 seconds or less. Now the set up menu should be displayed.

Within the setup menu, you will see a few different tabs and options. The first option should be ‘white balance’. Follow the instructions to complete the white balance calibration. The white balance calibration is most likely the only calibration that you will need to perform from time to time.

Follow the instructions on the screen to undergo the white balance calibration. The calibration process takes around 30 to 40 seconds, so be patient with the machine. After the calibration is finished, the results will be displayed on the screen. If you see any red text, we suggest attempting the calibration a second time. You can also try deleting the white balance data in order to remove any old calibration data that is not relevant anymore. This can be done by pressing the ‘remove white balance data’ button.

If you still continue to see any errors or issues, call your local tech support. Make sure you give them as much information as possible about the issue, and include any screenshots of the display for reference.
