The V-Cradle Design
The EDS Gamma integrates an innovative V-Table design supported by specific software tools in order to hold the originals in any possible position/angle. The V-table has been specifically designed by Metis in order to accept and gently hold different kind of originals in an optimal manner, even antique books with limited opening angle. The V-Table allows scanning large books, maps, drawings and many types of originals even larger than the A1 format and up to 15cm of thickness. Thanks to the METIS exclusive 'shape recognition' and 'curvature correction' technology, which is integrated into the EDS software, the document shape is detected in real time and the acquired image is deskewed in a fraction of second delivering a perfect result.
Independent lighting position/tilt
The EDS lighting includes 4 lamps that can be adjusted independently by the user (fixed in different positions and tilted). Customising the light position/tilt allow to control the light distribution over the scan area and to optimise reflections and uniformity. This is very important because different originals may require different arrangements and optimisation of the lighting for best results. Furthermore every lamp is controlled (switched On/Off) directly from the EDS Software and according to the selected working profile (i.e. book, map, etc.).
