New Products, New Designs from Image Access at CeBIT

Wuppertal, Germany - March 3, 2014 - Image Access introduces new scanners and new technological designs in both the WideTEK® and Bookeye® product families at the 2014 CeBIT trade show in Hannover, Germany from March 10-14, 2014. In Image Access’s largest exhibition space ever at CeBIT, in Hall 3 Booth E20, visitors can experience the new scanners and solutions firsthand.

In the WideTEK® product family, two new scanners, a 36” (915mm) and a 48” (1220mm) model have been outfitted with a built in 64bit Linux PC and new, custom designed CIS modules; which make them the fastest CIS scanners on the market.  Based on the successful WideTEK 36C and 48C models, the new scanners both scan at speeds of 10” (254mm) per second at all resolutions up to 300dpi in full color, nearly three times faster than the next competitor.

Also adding to the WideTEK® product family is the new WideTEK 12, the little brother of the very successful and now redesigned WideTEK 25 wide format flatbed scanner. Both scanners have the capability to capture images in the normal 2D mode with two newly developed LEDs lamps that produce very diffuse, natural light to avoid capturing folds and wrinkles. In the new 3D mode, surface properties of the source material are captured and merged into the image, producing incredibly 3D-like images that look very real. Advanced optics design means that closing the lid is not necessary in most cases, boosting productivity even higher. The WideTEK 25 is only 770mm (30”) wide while the WideTEK 12 only occupies 450mm (18”). Both scanners are the most compact in their class.


Image Access is adding a low cost model to its highly successful line of book scanners with V-shaped book cradles. The Bookeye 4 V3 is the first Image Access product in the price sensitive A3+ market. Bookeye 4 V3 has a 64bit Linux PC and 8GB of memory and is offered at a very competitive price.  Based on the successful Bookeye 4 line of scanners, ranging from the A1+ top model with motorized book cradles and automated glass plates to the A2+ model found in almost all libraries around the world, the Bookeye 4 V3 standalone walk up digital scanner has all of the features of the larger models, such as gentle, protective book scanning at 120°, PC free operation, an easy to operate touchscreen and high quality lamps at affordable price.  Bookeye 4 V3 easily beats the digicam based offerings often found in the low end market with its superior color quality, perfect optical bookfold correction and continuous focus adjustment, all of which are features not found in digicam based scanner substitutes.

Visit Image Access at CeBIT, in Hall 3 Booth E20 to experience the full line of WideTEK and Bookeye products, including the newest models WideTEK 36C and 48C, WideTEK 12 and Bookeye 4 V3 and see how to scan in 3D on the redesigned WideTEK 25.
