This model includes all of the features of the Basic model, but has a higher resolution of 600 dpi and client interface for 3rd party software to meet the highest quality standards.It also includes a foot switch and Full Coverage Warranty.


21 inch full HD multitouch screen allows the operator to control image quality and make many modifications on the fly.  Pinch and swipe on the touchscreen the same way you would on a smartphone to zoom or move around in the image during preview. Attach a second, optional screen to operate the scanner with the main touchscreen and preview images using the second screen.  The Live Preview function uses a second matrix camera to present a live video view of the document position before scanning.



There are three possible positions to attach the touchscreen: attached to the scanner neck, attached to the side of the scanner closer to the front or attached to the side of the scanner closer to the back, where you can angle the monitor in various degrees. It can also be used unattached, lying flat next to the scanner. The picture above shows the three attached positions.

Optionally a separate preview screen can be mounted to the neck, if the main touch is on the side.

The unique magnetically coupled book cradle solution allows users to digitize books and documents A3+ in size, by either laying them flat on the scanning bed at 180°or in the V-cradle, at an

angle of 120° for gentle, protective handling of the source material. The two sides of the cradle are magnetically coupled so that the book fold can be moved easily in the center for optimal scan results.

Dark mode operation, new to the Bookeye 5 V3 book scanner, enhances scan quality through less light reflection and improves operation by reducing eye strain.

Multilingual operation, with over 20 languages available for the unique Scan2Net and ScanWizard user interfaces. Customize the interfaces to comply with corporate identity norms and standards.

Laser-assisted book fold correction effectively reduces annoying shadows and distortions in the middle of a scanned image of a book when operators are scanning thick bound documents, resulting in a perfectly flat scanned image.
