BookDrive Mini 2
Innovative book scanning in a compact size.
Includes Capture 7 and Editor Pro software.
BookDrive Mini 2 is the most affordable and easiest to use model of the successful BookDrive line of scanners. BookDrive solution solves typical problems found in overhead scanners: page curvature, damage to book spine, and low productivity.
The BookDrive uses a different approach called a V-shaped solution. The combination of a V-shaped book cradle and a V-shaped platen holds the book open at a non-stressful 120 degree angle for scanning by two hi-speed, hi-resolution DSLR cameras.
Our affordable scanners are responsible for scanning over 3 million books and are currently being used by some of the most prominent academic libraries, universities and museums around the world
V shape is better than 180°
BookDrive's V-shaped cradle provides better support for your battered old books than conventional 180° cradles.
Scanning is performed without laying books out flat and applying undesirable force to bindings.
BookDrive eliminates the need for page curvature correction because it produces natively flat images in the first place.
This hardware approach results in faster operating time and more reliable result than the software manipulation techniques used by overhead scanners that produce curved pages.
Support up to Legal Size
BookDrive Mini 2 accepts books of varying kinds, sizes, shapes. For purpose of space-saving footprint, it accepts materials from very small books up to legal size (10" x 15"), and 5 cm. thickness max.
When new, improved camera models become available, users need only to replace their cameras not the entire scanning system as is the case with other offerings. BookDrive offers the best value proposition in the industry, as it will never become obsolete.
