Edina, Minnesota (PRWEB) December 16, 2012
Microfacs Inc, an imaging and document conversion company, announces the addition of a new scanning capability for large bound books or books in fragile condition.
The Indus 9000 Book Scanner is one of several scanners that can provide high resolution conversion to images or pdf. There are options for Black and White, Color or Grey Scale and outputs can be TIFF, JPG and PDF OCR so the pdf can be searchable.
“This technology is a great complement to our existing scanning capabilities," said Rick Romens, President of Microfacs. “It is a capability that many of our customers will be excited about, especially in cases where the book is in a fragile state.”
This capability is ideal for scanning large bound books or books that are a fragile condition as this system creates very little handling stress to the document. Microfacs can scan to resolutions of 200,300 and 400 dpi to get the best image possible. Books dating back to the 1850’s have been scanned without damage.
Microfacs scans all documents in a safe, secure environment but they can also travel to the client’s site with a portable scanner and digitize the books at their facility. This is especially useful for situation where the stress from shipping and handling is deemed to detrimental to the condition of the books.
