"The Plustek OpticBook 4800 makes the time-consuming chore of scanning book pages faster and easier than it would be on a standard, general-purpose flatbed. By letting the pages lay flat, it does better-quality scans, too," said Tony Hoffman, reviewer for PCMag.

Plustek's OpticBook 4800 is a fast, high-performance commercial/prosumer solution for scanning books, magazines and bound materials. This scanner is ideal for low-volume production book scanning, back-office book scanning, rare book scanning, magazine and comic book scanning, online sales of books/magazines/comic books scanning, and for anyone who wants to turn books, magazines and other bound material into digital files to use with computers or e-readers.

Plustek's OpticBook 4800 scans an A4 sized page in 3.6 seconds and book spine shadow and distortions are eliminated using Plustek's patent pending SEE™ (Shadow Elimination Element) Technology. Complete with everything needed to create searchable PDFs from any bound media, the OpticBook 4800's LED illumination ensures optimum image quality and reduces energy usage.
