Qidenus Mastered Book Scanner is compliant with the FADGI and Metamorfoze preservation standards and is available in A1, A2, A2 + and A3 + sizes. It scans virtually all types of books, offers scan speeds of up to 1.500 pages / hour, handles originals of up to 160 mm thick, utilizes the latest high-end CMOS sensors, and produces archival-grade images. This unique book scanner by Qidenus Technologies (an iGuana company) can be easily upgraded and can switch to manual operating mode with a mere push of a button, allowing for careful digitization of fragile books that require a human touch.
