Introducing BookDrive N from Atiz.

More than books, the versatile BookDrive N is great for scanning bound and unbound materials such as artwork, maps, photos, journals, newspapers or pretty much anything.

The Story of BookDrive N

The BookDrive N was originally developed for a massively large scale project in Japan where its national library (National Diet Library) undertook to digitize the nation’s collections of invaluable items such as journals and other materials with great cultural value.The project went very successfully. At first, we were hesitant to release this model to market because Atiz had always been known as maker of V-shaped scanners and we did not want to change that. With so many requests and demands from the customers, we finally made BookDrive N available for customers who want to scan such materials at highest quality and will benefit from having a versatile scanner like BookDrive N.

The Smart Adjustable Cradle

Flat-Plane Cradle
The BookDrive N’s cradle is very versatile. For sheet materials, the cradle acts as regular flat plane so that you can capture sheet materials like artwork or even objects easily.
Smart, Adjustable Cradle
For thick bound materials such as old fragile books, the cradle’s smart mechanism suddenly adjusts itself automatically so that both the left and right top pages being open will appear level on the surface suitable for scanning without curvature.
Ergonomic Design
Great ergonomics is priority. The glass platen is fingertip light. The BookDrive N is very comfortable to operate over long period of time.
Vertical Moving Glass
The glass can be freely moved vertically to accommodate even unusually thick books as well as to provide gentle flattening effect on the pages being scanned. What you get is a natively curvature-free image without needing further software correction.
Larger than A2 size
Max page size support for BookDrive N is 17.5 x 25.3 inches (or 44.5 x 64.5 cm) which is slightly larger than A2 size (16.53 x 23.39 inches or 42 x 59.4 cm).
Advanced lighting system
The proprietary cold LED lighting on both the front and rear of machine ensures your images have even brightness across the surface with no glare even on glossy materials.

Supports Canon and other DSLR cameras

For Maximum Resolution

Canon's full frame and crop factor cameras
High-end cameras from other brands such as medium format cameras from Pentax are also supported and can be mounted on BookDrive N (requires additional software or remote controller)

For Maximum Resolution

Scanned with a 50.6 MP sensor (Canon 5DS)
With this approach, scanning with an ultra-high resolution camera is instantaneous regardless of the page size. Your size can always easily upgrade to newer, better, and cheaper cameras.

Powerful Software Suite

Software determines the true productivity of a system and software from Atiz is the best.
