Modern Library Awards – Library Users Decide
The Modern Library Awards are based on the judgment and evaluation of library users. Participating companies submit their product and solution proposals each year in fall. The applications are then sent to over 8,000 librarians across the country. Only users with practical experience with the proposed products and solutions are allowed to provide evaluations based on functionality, value for money, and customer support.
Platinum Awards for ScanStudio, OS C2 Comfort, and OS 15000 Comfort
The Zeutschel ScanStudio has been awarded the Platinum Award for the fourth consecutive time. The all-in-one digitization system serves as an overhead scanner and photo studio. The user-friendly and productive system creates images with quality matching the highest levels of common quality standards such as ISO 19264-1, FADGI, and Metamorfoze. It is suitable for a variety of originals, from historically valuable books and newspapers to stamps, coins, films, and glass negatives.
The OS C2 Comfort is designed for everyday work in digitization centers, offering high result reliability and productivity. The OS 15000 Comfort is a multifunctional solution for diverse digitization tasks. With a maximum scan area of A3+ and a high resolution of up to 600 dpi, it can digitize large-format books, documents, and magazines.
Both overhead scanners also utilize the image optimization software Perfect Book. This software smoothes distorted letters in the book fold, straightens misaligned documents, and removes distracting elements such as post-its or fingers visible in the image due to holding the original in place.”
