Image Access partner KM Solutions has selected the Bookeye 4 V2 overhead book scanner to fulfill the requirements of an important restoration and conservation project ongoing in Convent and Monestary of San Agustin in Quito, Ecuador. Sales Director at KMSolutions, Nelson Cordova commented: “The project is very ambitious. We are in the initial stage, considering that the target is to scan 20,000 books, which are in different sizes and conditions. We have scanned the books that were initially designated, on time and in the quality expected.”
The Director of the Patrimony of the Convent of San Agustin, Mr. Harold Bustos Guerra, in conjunction with Ramiro Endara Martinez, Executive Director of the Conservartecuador Foundation, have issued a Certificate indicating details and results obtained so far, stating “excellent images and results have been obtained, while always ensuring the integrity and preservation of the original documents, which are part of the most valuable heritage of this country.” Sponsors of the venture include the Prince of Holland, the Order of the Augustinians, the Ministry of Culture and the Institute of Homeland and Culture.
