scannx book scan center

the scanner choice for libraries

University of Washington technology staff realized not just any scanners would do. "we've had desktop scanners in the past. In fact, we've filled our libraries with dozens, if not hundreds of them. But they weren't being used because the interface wasn't user friendly." By contrast, "the Scannx interface is so user-friendly that no support staff is needed, even on the first try."

protect books and privacy

The patented design of the Book ScanCenter protects the spine of the book from damage to extend its life. The book page lies flat on the glass, and the full image of the page is captured without distortion. The Book ScanCenter automatically crops, straightens and orients each page.

The system also protects privacy and confidentiality by only saving the scanning statistics and not any identifiable session information. Users can also password protect any scanned document and an additional authentication module can prevent anonymous emails from being distributed.

supported billing systems

The Book ScanCenter supports ITC and Jamex coin and debit card systems and major credit cards. It also works with leading print management vending systems include Pharos, EnvisionWare, and P-Counter. Scannx systems also support card systems from Blackboard and CBORD.

unmatched accuracy

The Book ScanCenter is integrated with the ABBYY FineReader Engine for unmatched accuracy. ABBY's multilingual document recognition engine automatically detects English, French, Italian, German and Spanish languages. The home screen also provides contrast and magnifying tools for the visually impaired.

"I like the touchscreen and the way it walks them through the steps. It didn't require any documentation. It just takes you intuitively through the process".

Unique design protects book spines

"From and IT standpoint, the Scannx centralized management console is an amazing tool, without this, we'd have to individually update all 29 machines. With the Scannx tool, we can push out a simple change or even a major change to all machines at the same time or a scheduled time."

The library even uses it to repair books. "sometimes, we'll have an older book missing a page, or a student will tear out three pages of literary criticism they need. A quick scan of the missing pages from another volume can be printed out and inserted into the damaged book...they really appreciate the beveled book-edge design of the Scannx, which protects the book spine from damage.
