Scannx Demonstrates the Next Generation in Self-Service Book Scanning Solutions at the American Library Association Conference in Dallas, Texas

Pleasanton, California (EastBayDaily) — Scannx LLC, a leading developer of cloud-based document capture and document delivery software and services, announced today that it will demonstrate its Scannx Book ScanCenter, the next generation in self-service book scanning solutions, in Booth #2124 at the American Library Association Conference in Dallas, Texas, on January 20 – 23, 2012. Attendees who come by the booth for a demo can register to win an iPad 2.

By simply touching the Book ScanCenter’s touchscreen, library patrons and staff can scan and send book pages, documents, and photos to their Email, USB flash drive, SmartPhone, tablet, Google Docs, fax, or printer. The Scannx Book ScanCenter is the first self-service book scanning solution to send scanned images directly to an iPhone or iPad in PDF, searchable PDF and Word file formats.

“Library patrons and staff can quickly and easily scan and send searchable and editable files to their smartphone or tablet without the cumbersome requirement to install software that needs to be configured with the scanner’s network IP address” , said John C. Dexter, president and COO of Scannx. “Documents sent to an iPhone or iPad can be stored in iBooks, thus allowing students to build their own personal library for research and collaboration. Moreover, library patrons and staff have the option to encrypt the files, if security and confidentiality are required, prior to uploading and storing in iBooks. Thus, we can customize this solution for scanning and storing sensitive information such as financial aid documents, student records, ID cards and medical records.”

Scannx’ executive management team has over fifteen years’ experience in document imaging, developing book and document scanning solutions for its consulting clients with PC-based software architecture. However, with the emergence of widespread cloud computing services, Scannx saw an opportunity to bring cloud-based document imaging to the educational market. The Scannx team proceeded to develop new software that leverages the very powerful cloud-based image processing, forms recognition, and workflow software that clients would find cost-prohibitive to run on a PC based system.

The Scannx Book ScanCenter includes a 15” touchscreen computer bundled with the Scannx software, an 11” x 17” patented book-edge scanner that protects the spine of the book from damage, and is powered by ABBYY FineReader Technology to convert scanned images into PDF, searchable PDF and Word file formats with unmatched optical character recognition accuracy. The ABBYY FineReader engine recognizes up to 180 languages which are available from Scannx for an additional fee. The ScanCenter also offers an optional 45 page per minute automatic document feeder (ADF) for high speed scanning of documents. All systems are covered by a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty.

ABOUT SCANNX Scannx LLC designs, develops, markets, and supports innovative document scanning solutions for the educational and municipality markets. Its patented Book ScanCenter features the industry's first cloud-based scanning technology integrated with an 11"x 17" high speed USB2.0 flatbed scanner with glass that comes to the beveled edge of the scanner. This patented book-edge design allows books to lay flat on each page, eliminating the blackened areas of text resulting from the page curvature at the book spine. As a result, the scan produces clearly readable text across the entire page. The book itself is also protected from damage to its spine, thereby reducing repair and replacement costs.

Through its easy-to-use Touchscreen interface, the Book ScanCenter allows students and library patrons alike to scan books and documents into PDF, searchable PDF, Word, JPEG, TIFF and PNG files and automatically store these files onto any digital repository to support an organization’s GOING GREEN initiatives. Scan to destinations include USB flash drive, email as an attachment, Google Docs, Smartphones, tablets, fax and printer. Once stored in a digital format, students can search, retrieve, edit, email, or print those files from their PC. The Book ScanCenter also integrates with third party pay-per-scan usage and revenue sharing systems. For more information, please visit
