Digital Publishing Services is proud to announce a new addition to the DPS Lab! The Zeutschel OS12002 overhead cradle book scanner. This mighty piece of equipment will allow the DPS Lab to work with a variety of print materials, including delicate/ fragile bound books and documents, to larger books, maps and newspapers.  The overhead scanner houses two highly sensitive and intuitive cameras that scan the documents, one of which is a 3D camera, which through the software PerfectBook, can correct the curvature of a book, document, etc.  This scanner was designed specifically to deal with all of the complicated issues many archivists of print material have had to deal with over the years. Digital Publishing Services is excited have this scanner in our possession so we can move forward with many ambitious projects in the future.
