Webgenic Technology Solutions Launches ScanCraft High Speed Book Scanner and Publishing Software
Sep 25, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Webgenic Technology Solutions, a Pune, Maharashtra-based start-up, announced availability of a complete digitizing and publishing solution consisting of ScanCraft High Speed Book Scanner and Webgenic Publishing Server.
According to a release, the hardware and software required to build this solution were entirely designed, developed and manufactured in Pune, making this the first commercially available "Made in India" product for digitization projects.
ScanCraft book scanner is designed for non-destructive scanning and can handle new as well as fragile and precious old books and documents. It's V-shaped book holder and transparent top protects books and flattens pages without causing stress to the book binding for accurate, curvature free scanning. The book doesn't need to be lifted or moved during scanning. The scanner produces a digitized version of the scanned books and documents in PDF file format, which can be made available over the internet (or intranet for internal office use) using Webgenic Publishing Server.
The scanner uses a dual high-resolution DSLR camera setup for capturing content (text and images) in the finest details. Dual camera setup is at the heart of high speed scanning as it captures two pages at a time in less than a second. ScanCraft's design helps in achieving large volume of scanning with minimum human efforts and stress. Technically, the scanner is capable of scanning over 1000 pages per hour and the scanning rate is limited only by the operator. At a comfortable rate, an operator can scan over 500 pages/hour which translates to over 1,00,000 pages/month in a single shift per day operations. This makes it ideal for digitization projects where large volume of books and documents need to be scanned.
"Until now, organizations had to rely on imported scanners for high volume scanning which escalated costs of digitization projects. ScanCraft scanner is indigenously designed and manufactured and can compete with any imported scanner for quality and functionality, yet it is available for a significantly lower price compared to most of the imported scanners," said Darshan Maharana, Founder of Webgenic Technology Solutions.
