The Story of BookDrive Nbookdrive n

The BookDrive N was originally developed for a large-scale project in Japan where its national library (National Diet Library) wanted to scan the nation’s collections of invaluable items such as journals and other materials with great cultural value, the project was very successful.
At first, Atiz were hesitant to release this model to market because Atiz has always been known as maker of V-shaped scanners and did not want to change those perceptions.  However due to demand from the customers, they finally decided to make BookDrive N available for those who need to scan such materials and will benefit from having a versatile scanner like BookDrive N.

The adjustable cradle has a smart mechanism inside that automatically balances content on the left side and right side     so that both sides appear even on the top surface


The glass platen is fingertip light.  The BookDrive N has an ergonomic design that is very comfortable to operate over a long period.


The glass can be freely moved vertically to accommodate very thick materials and to provide gentle flattening effect on both thin materials such as sheets of paper as well as thick old delicate books

Better Camera Support

Designed from the ground up to support both Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras, both zoom lenses and prime lenses.
Conveniently slide your camera to the suggested position and begin shooting, your camera will be at the right distance and height perfectly matching the size of the item you intend to scan.

Use the latest ultra-high resolution cameras such as Canon EOS 5DS (50.6 Megapixel) or Nikon D810 (36.3 Megapixel) to digitize large materials in A2 size. You will get over 350 high dpi (native, non-interpolaced) for A2 size or over 700 dpi for A4!
This is more than high enough for any preservation work.
Both hardware and software of the Atiz solutions are designed to supports this
