When its all about Preservation
DatacomIT has recently procured Australia’s first A0 size book scanner,The Guardian from England’s ICAM Archive Systems.
Why did DatacomIT choose this above all other large format scanners? Simple, ……it’s the best on the market!
The Guardian is a versatile scanning centre able to effectively perform high resolution scanning on a range of large format items, paper based as well as non- paper based.
This imposing scanner stands 2800 mm high, and is equipped with a patented pneumatic pressure book handling system which enables the efficient and delicate processing of fragile and brittle books, bound volumes, maps and plans.
Due to its modular design, The Guardian can utilise different book cradle positions, flat, 90 ° and 120°; the latter two used to ensure that precious book spines and bindings are protected and un-damaged during the scanning process.
It also facilitates high resolution scanning from a number a photographic camera possibilities. We can choose between several Canon and Phase One camera options ranging from 20 to 60 Megapixel resolutions to cater for virtually all your project requirements.
If preservation is what you are seeking look no further…The Guardian is here!
