What is BookDrive Pro? BookDrive Pro solves all problems found in book scanners. Problems of conventional scanners are page curvature, damage to book spine and low productivity. BookDrive uses a different approach called a V- shaped solution for scanning by hi-speed, hi- resolution digital SLR cameras. This unique design guarantees sharp, curvature-free images in every scan. The V-shaped solution has helped hundreds of libraries worldwide scan millions of books.
