In order to preserve the historical documentary heritage of the Peruvian Navy, the Directorate of Maritime Interests has just acquired a top of the line overhead scanner from Image Access, model Bookeye® 4 V1A Professional. The scanner was acquired through the activity of our local distributor Datacont SAC who presented the advantages of the Bookeye 4 V1A Professional over our competitors. Critical was to successfully generate perfect images of old and delicate documents gently, without harming the source material. The Peruvian Navy’s objective is is to store all these documents in a database and will begin digitizing documents from the beginning of the 19th century. The second step will be to provide online access to historians and researchers via PC.
Valuable documents dating from 1820 to 1830 are being scanned by this team in A1 format at a resolution of up to 600 x 600 DPI. Documents can be scanned with or without the glass plate, depending on the size and fragility of documents being scanned. The Bookeye® 4 V1A also features a configurable user interface in different languages and supports sRGB, Adobe RGB and Native color spaces. Our sales Manager from Datacont, Jaime Castro, has said: “Our relationship with this customer is very good. They are extremely happy with the results obtained. Whenever we take a potential customer to their facility, they dedicate time explaining their process and all what they have gained in the workflow generating the images. We have created a loyal relationship based on the results obtained and they are willing to help sharing their story and their facility, with other potential customers.”.
