Plustek Opticbook 3600 Product Details

Plustek Opticbook 3600 Book Scanner
OpticBook is the most portable and affordable book-scanning solution. The product uses patent-pending SEE (Shadow Elimination Element) Technology that includes a specially designed edge and lamp. This technology allows for “zero edge” scanning which means the scanning module can scan right up to the edge of the scanner where the book spine is placed. The book can therefore be scanned with the pages completely flat on the glass to avoid the annoying book spine shadow and distorted lines of text which occur when the books is scanned on a traditional flatbed scanner.
