The OpticBook A300 Plus flatbed scanner from Plustek is designed for high usage environments and is ideal for scanning book pages and other documents. With the A300 Plus you can scan an A3 sized page in less than 2.5 seconds, or a 200 page 8.5 x 11" book in approximately 20 minutes. Integrating mechanical, optical, and software technology to provide clear text and images within 2mm's of the book's spine, the scanner minimizes the spine shadow and distorted text associated with book scanning on flatbed scanners and eliminates the need to remove book pages from their bindings.
Users no longer have to damage bindings by pressing them flat or cutting pages to achieve a clean scan edge, making it an ideal scanning tool for students, schools, graphic designers, and any other work groups in need of scanning original binded documents. Additionally, this makes the A300 Plus ideal for library scanning as it allows books and texts to be efficiently digitized without unbinding, dismantling, and damaging them.
The included Book Pavilion Software streamlines book digitization processes, and allows pages to be automatically scanned and rotated at preset intervals, and user interaction via a PC screen is not required. The software automatically crops and rotates pages and will save to a variety of file formats including PDF, Searchable PDF, EPUB, BMP, JPEG, and TIFF.
