Pearl Scan has recently invested and introduced a new and more cost effective scanning and digitisation service offering the two methods for low to high volume digitisation (Non-destructive book scanning) and scanning (Destructive book scanning) of books. We have heavily invested in the state-of-the-art overhead leaner type book scanners which provide excellent result for bound books. It scans it without the need for dismantling or damaging the binding of the books.
Non-destructive Book Scanning
Our Non-destructive Scanning Service even allows us to scan the following types of hardcopy material;
Destructive Book Scanning
If you have a spare copy of the book, then it will be cheaper to have the spine removed and scan the book through using our high resolution image scanners. In this service, the spine of your book is removed before the scanning process commences. This is so that the pages can be run through one of our feed scanners. As this is a mostly automated service and takes less time to digitise compared to the in-tact scanning method, the price is much lower.
Our image processing applications corrects the scanned images to allow for the page curvature, background, de-skew, crop and de-speckle functionality, providing excellent image quality results that can be used as below;
Once books are scanned using any of the above two optional methods, our scan-to-web publishing service enables us to optimise the image size suitable for Web Archiving & Publishing, Online Portals, Online Downloads and view at their best in media where low file size means optimum speed of activity, such as the internet and e-books.
