CERRITOS (PRESS RELEASE – June 20, 2009) – Plustek Technology Inc. (, a manufacturer of consumer, prosumer, professional and office imaging devices (including portable scanners, sheet fed/flat bed scanners, wide format scanners and IP cameras), is pleased to offer a complete line of scanner solutions to fulfill nearly any user need. From home office to back-office, to libraries or paperless offices, Plustek has a tool to get the job done quickly and affordably.

Book Scanners

The OpticBook A300 is an USB 2.0 scanning device that can scan an A3-size page in just 2.4 seconds. The A300 creates a crisp, sharp image of the pages, which can then be turned into different formats. The scanner is bundled with highly effective image processing, fast and secure PDF conversion, and highly accurate optical character recognition (OCR) software. The OpticBook A300 scans thick books without unbinding or dismantling them, making it a perfect solution for digitizing and preserving precious and valuable books ideal for oversize collections and reference sections of libraries.

The OpticBook 3600 and OpticBook 4600 scanners are great for any administration task and special collection. A book or document may be scanned in real time to present the book’s content immediately onto the computer screen. The scanners auto turn the page orientation for each odd/even page that is scanned, making organization a breeze. Traditional scanners or copier-based systems produce distortion associated with the curvature of book spines and other specialized book scanners are large overhead devices that can be complicated and prohibitively expensive. Plustek’s SEEâ„¢ Technology (Shadow Elimination Element) combines a patent-pending illumination system with a special edge design that allows the scanning module to scan right up to the document’s spine. By employing this exclusive technology the OpticBook eliminates the any spine shadow and text distortion to output high quality images.

Each OpticBook’s powerful, bundled software package makes it easy to categorize images, using OCR, to convert text to different document formats, or burn a CD or VCD slideshow presentation. The OpticBook 3600 allows users to scan and save clean page images to jpg, tif, bmp, while the OpticBook 3600 Plus also allows the additional feature to scan and save the image in PDF format. The OpticBook 4600 includes all of these features and is unique for its fast scanning speed of 3.2 seconds for 300dpi color in A4/Letter size. With Plustek’s scanner solution for everyone, users will never have to carry a stack of papers around again.


Plustek products are in full distribution with Ingram Micro & D&H. All Plustek scanners can be purchased from TigerDirect, New Egg, CDW, Insight, PC mall, and other major e-tailers.
