Atiz Spotlights Powerful, Affordable Book Scanner at ARMA

(Market Wire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 10/15/09 -- Atiz Innovation, Inc., the leader in content digitization, will showcase its latest book scanning solution, BookDrive Pro, this week at the ARMA International Conference and Expo in Orlando, Florida. From deeds to books to legal documents, BookDrive Pro addresses the difficulties associated with records and information management by using a simple scanning method to digitize important documents. Additionally, BookDrive Pro's affordable price point lowers the barrier of entry for many of those tasked with digitizing bound content.

ARMA International is a not-for-profit professional association and the global authority on managing records and information. It is known worldwide for setting standards and best practices, and for providing comprehensive education, publications and information on the efficient maintenance, retrieval and preservation of vital information created in public and private organizations in all sectors of the economy.

Until now, scanning bound content could be a difficult and cumbersome task, producing results that were not high in quality. Atiz, whose products have scanned more than 3 million books worldwide, is helping those tasked with digitizing bound content get the job done at a price point that they can afford.

A powerful, cost-effective book digitization solution, BookDrive Pro combines digital SLR cameras with a unique v-shaped book cradle that is gentle on books and eliminates curvature problems to produce high-resolution scans at up to 700 pages an hour. Priced far lower than competing scanners, BookDrive Pro also features: -- A user-friendly, ergonomic design -- Automatic center positioning to ensure consistent borders and lessen manual intervention -- Double security locking mechanism -- Distortion-eliminating even light distribution -- Standard auto capture to simplify the whole process -- A price point far lower than competing offerings "From service bureaus, deed registries and archivists, to enterprise data managers and government entities -- everybody has bound content that needs to be scanned," noted Nick Warnock, president of Atiz. "BookDrive Pro gives organizations the ability to handle their digitization projects themselves, allowing them to choose what is scanned as well as control the sometimes sensitive content -- all while saving money by not having to outsource these projects." Service bureaus in particular are benefitting from the use of BookDrive Pro, including Advanced Micro-Image Systems, IMR Digital, Kellpro and Scantiva.

Atiz's innovative approach utilizes high performance SLR cameras as capture devices, making BookDrive Pro the best value proposition in the industry, as it will never become obsolete. When new, improved camera models become available, users need only to replace their cameras -- not the entire scanning system as is the case with other offerings. Further setting it apart from competing offerings, BookDrive Pro has the ability to scan oversized books -- up to A2, newspaper size -- and heavy, cumbersome items such as deed registries.

In addition to book spine damage and low productivity, conventional or overhead scanners also produce curved page images and rely on software to correct resultant curvature problems. This approach has proven to produce poor, often unreliable results. Atiz has taken a different approach, and BookDrive Pro eliminates the need for page curvature correction, making it faster and less expensive than other offerings. The combination of a v-shaped book cradle and transparent platen which sets the book in an angled position for scanning by high-speed, high resolution digital SLR cameras is a unique design that guarantees sharp, flat-looking pages in every scan.

Included with BookDrive Pro is Atiz's proprietary software package: BookDrive Capture and BookDrive Editor Pro. BookDrive Capture allows for the simultaneous capturing of images. The software supports SLR cameras manufactured by Canon. BookDrive Editor Pro allows for image editing functions such as the ability to batch crop, deskew, despeckle, color adjustment, TIFF conversion, and the output of eBooks in PDF format.
