BookDrive N


Performance double-page scanner 351dpi at A3 size.

More than books, the versatile BookDrive N is great for scanning bound and unbound materials such as artwork, maps, photos, journals, newspapers or pretty much anything.

Introducing BookDrive N from Atiz.

The Story of BookDrive N

The BookDrive N was originally developed for a massively large scale project in Japan where its national library (National Diet Library) undertook to digitize the nation’s collections of invaluable items such as journals and other materials with great cultural value.

The Story of the Atiz BookDrive N

The project went very successfully. At first, Atiz was hesitant to release this model to market because Atiz had always been known as maker of V-shaped scanners and they did not want to change that. With so many requests and demands from the customers, they finally made BookDrive N available for customers who want to scan such materials at highest quality and will benefit from having a versatile scanner like BookDrive N.

The Smart Adjustable Cradle

Atiz BookDrive N Flat-Plane Cradle
Flat-Plane Cradle

The BookDrive N’s cradle is very versatile. For sheet materials, the cradle acts as regular flat plane so that you can capture sheet materials like artwork or even objects easily.

For thick bound materials such as old fragile books, the cradle’s smart mechanism suddenly adjusts itself automatically so that both the left and right top pages being open will appear level on the surface suitable for scanning without curvature.

Great ergonomics is priority. The glass platen is fingertip light. The BookDrive N is very comfortable to operate over long period of time.

Atiz BookDrive N Vertical Moving Glass
Vertical Moving Glass

The glass can be freely moved vertically to accommodate even unusually thick books as well as to provide gentle flattening effect on the pages being scanned. What you get is a natively curvature-free image without needing further software correction.
