Market launch of the ScanRobot® in the new countries of former Yugoslavia.

 

LIDA 2010

For the first time TREVENTUS presented the automatic book scanner ScanRobot® during the LIDA conference in Zadar (Croatia) in the new countries of former yugoslavia together with our croatian sales partner EMES d.o.o. .  

TREVENTUS Digitization-Workshop

TREVENTUS held a workshop about mass digitization at LIDA 2010 introducing the Digitization Center of the Bavarian State Libray in Munich (Germany) as a "best-practice example". Especially the possibilities of efficient but also, in terms of conservation, gentle mass digitization of books from the 16th century were adressed.

 

Experiences from one the worldwide biggest digitization projects

For this digitization project, which is one of the biggest worldwide, three ScanRobots® SR301 were successfully used considering the extremly demanding specifications in terms of conservation. The duration of this project was 18 months (from begining of 2008 to middle of 2009) and during that time the Bavarian State Library digitized 1.7 million pages and a total of 8.900 books from the 16th century with the ScanRobots®

Faster scanning using the ScanRobot®

Due to the operation of the automatic book scanners from TREVENTUS the achieved digitization speed during this project was three times faster than with manual book scanners using the same amount of operators.
