In addition to improved lighting, camera and optics, the 14000-series Zeutschel units are at least twice as fast, offer bi-directional scanning to again increase throughput, offer interchangeable table/book cradle designs and offer parallel scanning and saving due to 64-bit technology and multi-threading. With the 14000-series’ 64-bit technology, an operator does not have to wait for a file to save before starting the next scan. Therefore, scan time + save time (usually referred to as cycle time), is truly only scan time, making for a very fast system. The overhead unit on the 14000-series moves over the entire document whereas the overhead unit on the 12000-series is fixed, using a mirror in the image path to capture the whole document. The 14000-series is also designed for higher-volume scanning with enhanced effective resolution, accuracy and image quality. The 14000-series Zeutschel scanners were selected by the U.S. National Archives & Records Administration (NARA) for their ability to meet and/or exceed NARA’s high quality and throughput requirements.
