"We like the technology, the durability, the ease of use..." Fred Krohn, Grohn Visual Media
Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Ristech is a North American leader in book scanning and microfilm scanning technology that has recently released the book2net Spirit- the first entry-level high-resolution book scanner designed for fast and simple public use, and the Book2net Kiosk, which includes a 40 Mp high-resolution, single-shot camera that can scan up to 2,000 pages per hour and is still gentle on books. These digital book scanners save time, money and energy for libraries looking to reduce their environmental footprint while eliminating the need for photocopiers, paper and toner.
“We like the technology, the durability, the ease of use and the fact that Book2net products provide such a green solution for libraries with no paper, no toner and no maintenance,” said Fred Krohn, partner in Grohn Visual Media, along with Steve Grabowski. “Libraries love all of this and the fact that the digital scanners are completely silent, they are perfect for their environment.”
“With all of the libraries, schools and readers in the Midwest, we are thrilled to develop this new relationship with Grohn Visual Media,” said Robb Richardson, president, Book2net, North American operations. “We look forward to working with Grohn and libraries across the Midwest that are looking for a new digital book scanning solution.”
Grohn Visual Media, based in Chicago, is currently expanding and hiring additional salespeople to offer the Book2net digital book scanners.
