Steps      
       
2 digital cameras are used as an image capture device instead of a scanner.   A book is placed on the v-shaped cradle.  
1. Digital cameras are used as image capture devices.
 
2. A book is placed on the v-shaped cradle.
 

 

     
The v-shaped transparent platen gently engages the book to make the pages flat.   The computer sends an instruction to the cameras to shoot images.  
3. The v-shaped transparent platen gently engages the book to flatten the pages.
 
4. The computer sends a signal to the cameras to shoot images.
 
 

 

   
Each page gets captured by its corresponding camera.   The images are immediately sent back to the computer for display on the screen.  
5. Each page gets captured by its corresponding camera.
 
6. The images are rendered on screen.
 
 

 

   
The computer then rotates, crops, resizes the images and adjusts their DPI real-time to make them in distribution-ready quality.   The user flips the page to next and lets the process repeat until completion.  
7. The software then rotates, crops, resizes and adjusts DPI to enhance each image.
.
 
8. Steps 3-7 are repeated with each turn of the page.
 
 

 

   
BookSnap outputs all the images into one single PDF.      
9.
On completion, BookSnap combines all the images into a single PDF file ready for distribution or archiving.
     
       

 

 

 

BookSnap Technology

1. The engineered lighting environment prevents glare and interference that would otherwise occur from showing up on the images.

2. The self-adjusting, v-shaped cradle and platen gently sandwich the book and guarantee that pages always remain in the correct position parallel to the camera's focal plane (even with thick-spined books), for sharp, flat-looking images.
