ScannX Overhead Book Scanner 1800

The ScannX Overhead Scanner 1800 delivers a powerful, yet affordable, book scanning solution for libraries.
This leading-edge technology reduces book scanning to page turning, creates flat scans from curved books, enables glossy prints to be scanned without glare or reflection, and integrates smart tilt correction and auto-cropping. In fact, it even removes the user’s thumbs from the scan area, using advanced AI technology unique to ScannX. The end result? Perfect scans every time.

As powerful as it is, this state-of-the-art scanner solution also makes it easy for everyone to use it. Flexible in design from the ground up, it enables users to control the scanner using a touch screen, a hand button, or a foot pedal, while scanning entire pages at the ultra-fast rate of 6 seconds – including dual-facing pages of a book or A3-size documents.
