Mark 2 Lite is part of the new Mark 2 series. You have 2 great choices: Mark 2 for double A2 and Mark 2 Lite for double A3 scanning in lighter and space-saving form factor. Both have the same great technology, ergonomics and safety features that come from close collaboration with the pro users.
BookDrive is a de facto industry standard of how libraries around the world digitize their books today. A dual-camera “V” cradle imaging system captures images of books and print materials, without risk of damage to the items being scanned. This scanning solution pioneered by Atiz has become so successful that it is widely embraced even by competitors.
We chose the Atiz for the following reasons:
- Simplicity of its design - there are fewer things that can go wrong. There are no motors, and fewer moving parts.
- Modularity - If we want to upgrade to more powerful lenses or cameras in the future, we can just buy them and install them ourselves without having to purchase a whole new machine. Therefore the Atiz Mark II is more safe from obsolescence.
- Size - The Atiz Mark II takes up less space than the other units we were considering.
- Cost - This product was considerably cheaper than the other units we were considering.
- Speed - The Mark II can capture 2 high-resolution images in a couple of seconds including the time it takes to turn the page. Overhead planetary scanners take many times longer, depending on the resolution.
Ergonomics, operator comfort and safety is most important and it has received a major upgrade.
BookDrive Mark 2 Lite is easier on your back, arms, eyes and ears.
Even light distribution with no bright or dark spot visible anywhere in the frame.
The V platen is made using a premium scratch-resistant material that is more transparent and durable than glass allowing for better scanned images. It is manufactured using a different production technique so that it allows you to scan deeper into the gutter.
full frame and crop factor cameras
