PLEASANTON, Calif., -- For library patrons and staff looking for a powerful book
scanning solution that's fast, and easy-to-use, Xerox (NYSE: XRX) makes scanning
of books and non-circulating materials feasible with its new BookCentreTM S7141,
a self-service book scanning kiosk.
"Library patrons and staff can quickly and easily scan from books and send the
scanned pages to email, smartphones, tablets, Google Docs, USB drives, fax or
print them by selecting the desired option on the touchscreen computer”, said
John C. Dexter, president and COO of Scannx, a Xerox licensing partner. “Academic
research and collaboration has never been easier and more productive. Students
are thirsting for digital solutions to their everyday studies.”
By using the Xerox BookCentre S7141’s easy to use touchscreen interface, library
patrons and staff can scan book pages, and non-circulating books, historical records
and genealogical files. Scanned images can be automatically converted into PDF,
searchable PDF, Word, JPEG, TIFF and PNG file formats and sent to email, smartphones,
tablets, Google Docs,fax, printers or saved to USB drives, network folders, and
FTP folders to save paper and toner. Students can build searchable personal libraries
by subject matter by sending scanned pages as a searchable PDF or Word file format
to their iPad and store it in iBooks for sharing and collaboration. Moreover,
confidential files can be automatically encrypted to protect against unauthorized
access to the scanned information.
When connected to a Xerox printer or other validated printers, either directly
or over the network, the Xerox BookCentre S7141 recognizes the printer features
for print options on the BookCentre S7141’s touchscreen. The BookCentre S7141
also gives users a preview of the print job as well as adjustments for actual
size vs. fit-to-page before paying for the print job. Since the BookCentre can
integrate with debit and credit card payment systems, libraries can offer these
scanning services free or they can charge for them through a cost recovery program.
The Xerox BookCentre S7141 includes a 17” touchscreen computer bundled with the
Xerox BookCentre software, an 11” x 17” patented book-edge scanner to protect
the spine of the book from damage, and is powered by ABBYY FineReader Technology
for unmatched optical character recognition accuracy. The BookCentre S7141 may
also be simultaneously connected to both the book-edge scanner as well as a Xerox
DocuMate 3125 color sheetfed duplex scanner with ultrasonic double feed detection
for unprecedented reliability.
The BookCentre includes a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty. Please visit www.xeroxbookcentre.com

The Xerox BookCentre S7141 has a U.S. list price of $5,995 and is available immediately
through Scannx and its channel partners, and Xerox and its agents and dealers.
