The new CopiBook OS A1 is the fastest A1 scanner on the market. It utilizes the same high resolution cameras currently found in the standard CopiBook OS, capturing a large A1 surface area at 400 x 400 dpi in one rapid shot. Quality is not lacking with the A1 scanner’s new E-XTRA camera, embedded with TrueColor technology which provides superior color.  Unlike other A1 scanners on the market, the CopiBook OS A1 does not utilize slow line scan technology. The i2s Eagle and E-XTRA cameras can instantly capture the full A1 scan surface due to their 71 megapixel and 156 megapixel matrix sensors.  Users will experience the best of both worlds with excellent quality and remarkable speed.


The new larger book cradle allows users to scan traditionally over-sized materials that could not fit on standard A2 size book cradles. Now you can instantly scan books, maps, newspapers, documents, and fragile material up to 23.6 x 33.1 inches in less than one second!

As with other i2s scanners, the CopiBook OS A1 has built-in Windows-based LIMB Capture software. LIMB Capture offers real-time color previews before scanning, automatic format detection to help reduce errors, and auto focus.  Additional advantages of LIMB Capture are its multilingual operator interface and the ability to define multiple output formats and settings per crop frame. 


With its impressive sleek design, the book cradle features a fully mechanical scan glass. With the press of a button, the glass will lower, the cradle will automatically auto level and adjust for scan pressure, and the camera will capture. Once completed, the glass will raise to 45° so the user can turn the page. These features, including the front touch pad and foot pedal, create an effortless scanning experience.
