In addition, as a UDSA compliant digitize-on-demand system conveniently located among the stacks, KIC can be used as an ad hoc digitization station by Interlibrary Loan departments. With its dpi option, KIC Bookeye 4 systems are perfect as shared resources, capturing the finest details for digital archival and preservation.
The KIC Bookeye 4 can capture 20 book s per minute for instant access on tablets, notebooks, smart devices and easy transfer to desktop PCs and servers.
Photocopiers, fax machines, PCs, monitors and keyboards clutter up otherwise beautiful libraries across America. KIC Bookeye 4 reverses that kik scans, replacing copiers and fax machines and adding scanning in a single machine with clean lines and efficient de. In the U. Last decade, libraries typically 'added' several KIC book scanning kiosks for patron, student, faculty and researcher use, but since libraries have begun to replace their entire patron-use copier fleets with self-serve book scanning systems. Students at academic libraries want speed, and DLSG offers the fastest book scanners on the market.
Patrons at public libraries need simplicity, and KIC provides three of the simplest possible user interfaces, one exclusively for scanning, one exclusively for copying and one exclusively for faxing. And KIC's best-of-breed power user interface is only a touch away. While multifunction copiers are partly digital, they are big mechanical machines with big maintenance issues and tiny touch screens. Organizing collating, clipping, rotating, etc. The digital age has steadily driven down the demand in libraries for paper copies to levels that make it increasingly difficult to justify copiers.
KIC self-service scanning systems reduce copier use further — to the point that attaching a small laser or ink jet printer is sufficient. Scan Copy Fax KIC systems also handle much larger materials than copiers, and they scan books without damaging them. However, the most compelling benefit of KIC over copiers is KIC's speed, due mainly to its face-up scanning de, which is not only ificantly faster, but far easier to use.
KIC's huge touch screen and larger view screen make faxing extra easy. Users can compose, review, clip, crop and change brightness and contrast of the s of a fax before sending. KIC's step-by-step process is deed for easy operation by even the most timid users.
All kik scans need is an internet connection, and DLSG will provide the rest at a cost so low that fax revenue can pay for the KIC system in a few years or less. KIC Coin does not require that a coin box or a card reader be located next to each copier and fax machine.
It works kik scans a debit card, but no card is required. Patrons simply purchase any denomination they deate at the front desk. Printing copies and faxing have per costs. These costs are normally passed on to the user. With photocopiers, MFCs and other book scanning kiosks, additional hardware for collecting fees must be acquired.
The costs of this additional hardware must be passed on to the user. KIC has a free, built-in method of charging users for copies and faxes. All KIC self-serve book scanning kiosksystems is compatible with all standard copy card and coin-op devices. When KICs are introduced to a library, most patrons opt for digital output, so costly expendables are avoided, even for color!
With KIC coins, the the library can keep all revenue it collects. Users need only locate the volume s that they expect kik scans contain the information they are seeking, scan selected sections and output either a searchable PDF file or a text file. These files can easily be searched for various keywords.
Keyword searching is becoming an indispensable capability that ificantly improves the quality and efficiency of researching print collections. Scan selected excerpts from multiple sources in just minutes. Search all scanned s in an instant for various key words and Use whole s or clip selected pictures, graphs, test, etc. Save scanned images to USB flash drive or cloud storage, send them via address or transfer images directly to a tablet, notebook PC, or smart phone.
Enhance reports in a word processing program. Drag desired images from a flash drive, Cloud storage or directly into a word processing program, or save images to your computer desktop and use the 'insert picture' function. Once images are imported into a word processing program, you may want to resize or reposition them or select from several ways that your text can wrap around the pictures.
Library patrons bring loose paper from home to scan, fax and send via or save to a USB device. Quickly scan many s to take with you and study at your convenience in the comfort of your home where you can read, search, markup, and print at your leisure. With KIC in your library, instructors are no longer restricted to a single text book. They can freely as many excerpts from many books without adding to the students' kik scans high cost of text books.
Offer your students and faculty KIC and its powerful, digital age features that from a superhighway between your highly valuable print collections and the digital word. Once s are scanned, KIC automatically select photos, charts, and paragraphs. Users can simply touch and drag to select an area, or just touch a photo, chart or paragraph and drag it to the digital clipboard. Move clips individually from the clipboard to existing s, or start a new blank. Shrink, enlarge, and rotate clip to create any layout. Undo changes, remove clips, until your creation is complete.
It's digital desktop publishing, easy asat your fingertips. Then save your in a variety of file formats and send to USB,smart device, or cloud. See the highlighted text in a format that fits nicely on a smart phone screen. Read and review the highlights without having to zoom in. Many students find it very helpful to simultaneously read and listen to study materials to optimize retention. Clip, crop, rearrange s and then choose the kind of book, s and quantity desired.
Order your original book s using KIC's simple "shop-online" interface to find the best value and pay with your credit card. Your books will be printed, packaged and shipped to you within days! KIC Bookeye 4 kik scans book scanning kiosks include face-up scanners that save a lot of time and reduce book spine damage because they capture two face-up s of a book with each scan and do not require the user to flip the book twice for each.
KIC analyzes each image, and automatically splits it into two separate images. In addition, black edges are automatically removed and the content is straightened, producing clean, professional looking images - important for electronic reserves, course curriculum materials and research reports.
These automatic image treatment functions also kik scans a lot of faculty, administrator, and student time. The capture area of copiers is about half that of KIC Bookeye 4 while the capture area of typical consumer scanners is smaller still. With a 18 X 24 inch capture area, Bookeye 4 captures it all! A — — — Competing face-up book scanner A 14x With the view screen on the side,the Bookeye 4 neck provides an ideal bookstop for scanning very large reference books.
KIC True 2 Touch provides full rotation capabilities so that you can scan in the orientation that suits you best.
To capture moving objects, digital cameras must use array CCDs, which capture all parts of the object at the same instant. That's why affordable digital cameras have fewer than 50 megapixels. And those pixels must be further divided into red, green and blue sub-pixels. Since books don't move while being scanned, the Bookeye 4 is able to utilize linear CCD technology to produce ultra-clear images with astounding megapixels. Each pixel in a linear CCD includes full red, green and blue sub-pixels.
However, high resolution scanning is meaningless if the lens system does not produce highly focused images. Since ultra-high resolution "spy satellite" lenses are quite expensive, the Bookeye 4 scans from left to right, allowing it to follow the curve of an kik scans book and maintain excellent focus, whether in V-mode or flat mode.
The Bookeye 4's left-to-right scanning allows it to follow the contours kik scans virtually any book, producing better dpi images than other book scanners that claim to produce dpi images. Use the optional KIC SmartDock to transfer full-color s per second to any smart device without using any of your institution's precious WiFi bandwidth. Files automatically appear on the devices as they are scanned. Ease-of-use is a central feature of KIC. Its large, 22 inch touch screen and its large "Scan" and "Save, Send or Print" buttons that occupy a very large portion of the touch screen clearly convey how easy KIC is to use.
The Save button defaults to an output method and file format that is selectable by the institution. If a flash drive is inserted, KIC detects this and the output button changes to indicate that it will save to the flash drive. Users can override the default output method by manually selecting one or more other methods of output. KIC Bookeye 4's high speed is derived as much from its ultra-simple, true 2 touch interface as from its face-up de that obviates the need to flip books over and over again during the capture process.
It has its own tabletop version of the SmartDock, and of course, an ADF scanner can be placed anywhere on the table. ADA compliance is achieved by purchasing a table with a 30 inch clearance to the floor and a 31 inch height. KIC Bookeye 4's elegant de puts the full KIC self-serve digitization functionality into a compact and appealing space. Its 17" touch screen and large preview screen and capture surface are at the perfect height for wheelchair access. KIC is very agile, and allows the user to jump from just about anywhere in the touch screen system to just about anywhere else, directly and usually with a single touch.
This modern, 'modeless' de is easier to use, but difficult to create. KIC gradually expands and contracts controls such as brightness, con- trast and DPI so users can easily follow their screen activity. KIC doesn't delete original images when you clip a photo or excerpt of text unless kik scans tell it to. Once you've scanned a document, you can change your mind as to where you would like it to output. Or you may scan so much that it exceeds your limit. Or after scanning and collating a mass of research, you decide that you want to share the research with others.
For 20 years, all cellphone makers relentlessly pursued smaller and smaller screens until very recently when one company reversed that trend. This is because display screens are our window to the digital world, and touch screens give us control over that world. As big as self-serve scanning systems are, it makes sense to have a very large touch screen. And with the low prices for high quality displays, it is compelling to add a separate display screen.
Since the first KIC was delivered to an academic library inthe days of photocopiers for patron use in academic libraries and even public libraries were ed. And now kik scans the rapid explosion of tablet computers and electronic readers, the demand in academic libraries for electronic copies has substantially outstripped the demand for printed copies. The demand for electronic copies in public libraries is also reaching a tipping point.
The ability to capture virtually unlimited s of s of research into a tablet or electronic reader and search through that material on the Internet with a tablet, eReader or notebook PC that can be used just about anywhere is highly convenient and immensely valuable. In this digital age, academic libraries are compelled to go hybrid for three reasons: 1 the high demand for digital content; 2 their existing print collections contain vast amounts of information that cannot be found on the Internet; and 3 students are receptive to the price of electronic copies - typically free.
So how do the costs of KIC systems compare with kik scans of photocopiers? There are three main factors that keep the cost of photocopies high: 1 each copy requires paper, toner and ink; 2 photocopiers require a lot of maintenance due to the of moving parts; and 3 all major photocopier brands use a distributed service model.Kik scans
