Bound Book Digitisation

DatacomIT is a specialist in digitisation services, with the provision of book scanning solutions being one of our major areas of expertise.

Our ability to provide a custom solution to our client’s book scanning requirements is a testimony to our many years experience in this area.

We work closely with our clients to understand their operational parameters, essentially what we have to work with. In some cases we are driven by a time based deliverable, in others it may be budgetary constraints, in some cases we are called upon to digitise delicate, historic and precious book materials and consequently we provide effective solutions for each and combinations of these requirements.

DatacomIT embarks on all book scanning projects with the objective of achieving uncompromised quality, adhering to operational parameters and ensuring deadlines are met.

Our book scanning solutions can be broken up into:

    • Large format book scanning
    • High speed book scanning
    • Preservation book scanning

DatacomIT has partnered with ATIZ – USA and ICAM Archive Systems-UK to provide Large Format Book Scanning . These solutions whilst offering different approaches to book scanning both represent leading edge technology, and can accommodate book sizes up to A0. These book scanners provide both a unique adjustable flat bed, as well as v-shaped, automatically adjusting book cradle. Combined with precision optics, our ATIZ – USA and ICAM Archive Systems-UK Solutions enable the reproduction of zero glare, perfectly rectangular, high quality crystal clear images.

They have been designed to eliminate the problem of page curvature, which is prevalent in the more traditional methods of book scanning.

Preservation book scanning implies that not only are we seeking to preserve the image via the process of scanning and digitisation, but also wish to keep the integrity of the source intactATIZ’s Bookdrive and ICAM’s Guardian and Vanguard book scanning solutions guarantee that delicate and fragile books do not degenerate in any way during the scanning and digitising process.

Our book scanning solutions cater for medium to large book inventories with throughput capacities ranging from 700 pages to around 2,700 pages per hour and more if required.

Incorporated in our book scanning solution is the ability to automatically crop pagesindex and provide a completely searchable PDFXMLword file, or virtually any other format required.

DatacomIT and book scanning, a perfect match.
