Zeutschel OS 12000 Bookcopy

We’ve covered a few book copying machines in the past but I think the OS 12000 Bookcopy definitely wins in the looks department. While the other machines are designed to be used in a back room for automatically digitizing whole texts the OS 12000 is designed to be used manually like a photocopier.

However instead of placing your book or documents face down on a plane of glass you just set them under the overhead camera face up. The page will then be scanned in about a second with a resolution up to 300 ppi. The scanned image then appears on an LCD display letting you preview the results before you send the files to a USB flash drive, memory card, CD, DVD or even directly to a laser printer. And for archivists the OS 12000 is particularly friendly to older documents since it uses a very low light to illuminate the page in conjunction with the high speed scanning.

    Books will never be removed, because even they are bulky, they are still more affordable than buying 1 kindle that costs hundreds of dollars.
