Scanning and Microformat Printing


ScanTents offer an easy way to digitise books or loose documents in high quality. In conjunction with any scan app, books or documents can be easily scanned with your own smartphone. The support on the top of the ScanTent is used to steadily hold the smartphone in place and, at the same time,  guarantees an optimal viewing angle. White LED strips provide an even illumination of the object.

For a smooth scanning process, the free DocScan app is recommended. Once started, an image is automatically captured as soon as a page is turned. The scans can later be combined into a PDF document on the smartphone and saved or sent. It is also worth noting that the app also includes a text recognition function (OCR). The DocScan app is available for IOS and Android devices.

“Bookeye” Book Scanners

Print items can now be scanned for free using a Bookeye 5 V3 colour overhead book scanner (up to A2 format). You can save your scanned documents to your own USB stick or transfer them to the "Scan2Pad" app (Android/iOS).
