I’m a historian, not a digitization expert, but I’ve become one out of necessity. Wading into a high-end niche, I didn’t want to spend thousands of dollars on the wrong thing.

Overhead Capture with Archival Quality

Zeutschel book and large-format scanners, manufactured in Tübingen, Germany and distributed in the U.S. exclusively by The Crowley Company, are designed to digitize a wide range of material — books, oversized documents, maps, manuscripts and more — while preserving the original. Zeutschel’s overhead (also called planetary) capture system, adjustable book cradles and optional glass plates ensure a safe scan every time, even of the most fragile material. This high degree of safety doesn’t compromise quality — Zeutschel scanners offer up to 600 x 600 dpi true optical resolution and advanced editing and processing options with their proprietary software solutions.

Award-Winning products

The Zeutschel zeta, 14000 and the 12002 scanners received gold and platinum awards in the Modern Library Awards (MLA’s). Read more.

What is a large-format scanner?

A large-format scanner is an imaging system capable of digitizing over-sized materials. Over-sized material is usually considered to be anything larger than 8.5” x 11” (A4) and can include maps, blueprints, manuscripts, etc.

What size scanner do I need?

To determine the maximum scan area required, find the largest item in your collection and measure its length and width. (If the material is a bound volume, lay it flat with the pages open and measure the full width across both pages). Then compare that measurement with our A-series paper size chart to decide which size scanner is right for your digitization project.
