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 family of digitization products continues the Kirtas tradition by providing the Smart Cradle  with new automatic book centering, which keeps the book centered in the cradle and automatically adjusts the height of each side compensating for the thickness of the book as it transfers from one side of the cradle to the other during digitization. The Smart Cradle ensures consistent quality from the first image to the last and dramatically decreases post-processing time.

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 Sure Turn 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.
