A0 Book Scanner SCAN MASTER 0 4838

A0 Book Scanner with a New Design

  • Scanning range above A0
  • Very high optical resolution
  • Extremely high scanning speed
  • Free of IR and UV radiation
  • Virtual 3D technology (V3D)
  • Bidirectional scanning
  • Motorized heavy-duty book cradle
  • Prime and consistent scanning results independent from ambient light

The A0 book scanner SCAN MASTER 0 4838 is an alternative to the well-known SCAN MASTER 0 3650. With a scan orientation like the SCAN MASTER 2 and SCAN MASTER 1 scanning from back to front and vice versa, it achieves higher productivity than the SCAN MASTER 0 3650. Moreover, the SCAN MASTER 0 4838 is upgradeable to robotic scanning.

With a motorized standard book cradle of 35 cm range, it can handle the really big stuff. If this is not enough a motorized 50 cm book cradle is optionally available. Operating the SMA SCAN MASTER 0 3848 A0 book scanner is nice and easy. Simply place the book and hit the scan button. The rest of the process is fully automatic. All the operator has to do is flip the page and release the scan.

All SMA scanners are equipped with a special LED light illuminator that does not produce any ultraviolet or infrared radiation. Harmless and uniform illumination is guaranteed. The illuminator of all SMA scanners is located inside the scan head and is simply moved across the original. As a result, all SMA book scanners can be operated independently from ambient light and do not irritate the operator‘s eyes.

The SCAN MASTER 0 3848 ab book scanner comes with V3D Technology – a new scanning technology which allows users to scan many different types of originals. It offers the capability of digitizing structured surfaces such as wood, rubber, plastic, fabrics, carpet, and many more types of materials. Finally, light-reflecting items such as coins, seals, metal prints, and silver or gold-coated originals can be captured at the highest quality.

The V3D technology presents new opportunities as it can be applied to materials outside the normal archive and library world. V3D stands for VISUAL 3D. It is a newly designed scanning technology that produces results that look like 3D. The process is based on different lighting scenarios where the same area is being captured with several different lighting scenarios on the fly. The software then combines the separate images into one image. As a result, V3D images offer perfect reproductions of nearly any structured surface. In addition, it increases the depth of field significantly.

This approach is unique and raises the outstanding image quality of SMA scanners to another level. The V3D function can be disabled and regular 2D scanning can be performed.
