Reasons Why Customers Choose Atiz

Simplicity of its design

There are fewer things that can go wrong. There are no motors, and fewer moving parts.


This product was considerably cheaper than the other units we were considering.


If we want to upgrade to more powerful lenses or cameras in the future, we can just buy them and install them ourselves without having to purchase a whole new machine. Therefore the Atiz Mark II is more safe from obsolescence.


The Mark II can capture 2 high-resolution images in a couple of seconds including the time it takes to turn the page. Overhead planetary scanners take many times longer, depending on the resolution.


The Atiz Mark II takes up less space than the other units we were considering.

The "V" System Gets a Major Upgrade

Atiz BookDrive Mark 2 Improved V Platen
Better, scratch-resistant V platen

The V platen is made using a premium scratch-resistant material that is more transparent and durable than glass allowing for better scanned images. It is manufactured using a different production technique so that it allows you to scan deeper into the gutter.

Atiz BookDrive Mark 2 Flexible Cradle for Thick Spine Books
Flexible cradle for thick-spine books

The new V cradle is better and more flexible. The cradle is adjustable, the angle altered and opened apart. This makes for optimal page contact for all kinds of book bindings and spine thicknesses. The self-centering cradle slides sideways during scanning keeping the books centered.

Lighter V Platen

New V platen mechanics allow for the operator better control of the platen to mitigate risk of operator injury or damage to items being digitized. It is fingertip light to lift or lower. The platen hovers in the air and stays exactly where you position it.
