Easier operation and higher productivity – upgrade offer available
More functionality at the same price: The new zeta comes with a larger, state-of-the-art touchscreen, more computing power under Windows 10 and the latest zeta software version. The Zeutschel overhead scanner features a scanning unit located above the document support surface. Books, magazines and other documents can therefore be opened normally and scanned from above. This is much more efficient and productive compared to conventional scanning and copying systems. The new zeta comes without a book cradle or with a comfort book cradle. An Office kit is also available for typical office applications, including the scanning of folders or bound documents. An upgrade offer is available for existing zeta users. More Information:
“The new zeta will continue the success story of the first generation. Especially in the self-service sector of libraries and archives, where the overhead scanner has supplemented and partially replaced existing copy environments. We still see great market potential in public and academic libraries as well as in the archive sector,” says Horst Schmeissing, Sales Manager at Zeutschel. He adds, “The overhead scanning principle has also found its customer base in the office sector, including banks, healthcare providers and law firms.”
The new zeta
Compared to the first generation model, the new zeta has a 21.5″ touchscreen. This screen is almost twice the size, yet only increases the surface area by 2″. The touchscreen is characterized by its high operating sensitivity and full HD resolution (1920 x 1080). Images are displayed sharper and more brilliantly in colour, and the picture view from the side has been improved.
A new computer with Core i3 processor and SSD hard disk operates inside the touchscreen. This increases user productivity, e.g. by allowing images to be processed more quickly. USB 3.0 ports provide fast data transfer to external devices. Comes with the WIN 10 IoT Enterprise LTSB operating system (embedded version).
Optimized image results
The latest version (1.6) of the zeta software offers functions for optimised image results. The software automatically straightens templates that have been placed at an angle. Distortions caused by folds in thick books and book curves are corrected. In the Office version, the zeta software additionally removes annoying image elements such as bound documents and folder mechanisms including levers. This allows the user to scan directly from the folder without having to remove the documents beforehand and filing them in again. The integrated OCR (optical character recognition) engine makes it possible to create searchable PDFs from books, folders and other templates.
Through the scan-to-network function, digitised templates can be immediately stored on network drives. Scans can also be saved on a USB stick and sent by e-mail.
