Quality Automated Book Digitisation.
Quality results are the primary objective of any book digitization project. Quality includes not only superior images, but also high accuracy OCR, comprehensive metadata, and complete book integrity. And achieving this will allow you to use the book images to their fullest capability both now and for future undefined needs. Do it once so they last forever!
The new KABIS II system continues the Kirtas tradition by providing the SmartCradle with new automatic book centering that increases post-processing productivity. The 110 degree position is optimal for low stress, gentle book positioning including fragile and rare books. Air flows and the Enhanced Page Separator combine to separate pages, and the newest SureTurn robotic arm with its vacuum head will gently lift and turn the page. KABIS III uses new clamps with streaming air jets to help flatten pages for optimum image quality. Within the vacuum head is our Page Edge Sensor technology to detect multi-page or no-page lift conditions and automatically take programmable corrective action. The result is full book content integrity and quality.
The newest APT Manager software provides a simple user interface to let you start digitizing quickly. Downloading MARC or Dublin Core bibliographic information to include with the book metadata is quick and easy from OCLC or your own database.
The Kirtas Difference.
The page images are captured using the latest Canon 21MP cameras in full 24 bit color in a fraction of a second; one for left-side pages and one for right-side pages. The images can be captured at 325 or 400 dpi resolution with superior sharpness and excellent color fidelity. 500 and 600 dpi options are available for smaller books.
