A little poking around turns up this photo:Table-top book scanner that works with back-end Archive technology and staff to create beautiful online books
And this link, which includes videos of assembly and use: https://archive.org/details/TableTopScribe
Optionally auto-uploads to the Internet Archive and your first 15k pages are stored and post-processed by their systems for free! And $0.04/page thereafter, which is less than half the $0.10 they normally charge (which includes the cost of them performing the scanning).The TT Scribe is a budget-friendly $9,999 USD for North America, ships from Richmond, California. Pricing includes:
- 2 digital color cameras - 10 megapixels or greater. Includes AC power adapters. Manufacturer's warranty covers 100,000 shots per camera.
- Energy efficient LED lights. 10,000 hour warranty.
- Easy-to-assemble,'tool-less' mechanical set up, black anodized frame with 24-month warranty.
- First 50 books or 15,000 pages of back-end Internet Archive processing (normally $.04USD) are free!
- Price includes an Internet Archive supplied laptop loaded with Internet Archive approved digitization software with auto-upload functionality via 'normal' office WiFi.
- Large image and archival sub-assembly hardware and lighting included at no extra cost. Note: one of the cameras must be repositioned onto the overhead arm (set up time is less than 3 minutes).
Seems like a pretty good deal for a library or other collection holder to me, given the IA backing and access. More than competitive with commercial models.
If you discount the 15k pages ($600), the laptop ($600?), and cameras ($1k each?), that's still 6x more than the Archivist scanner, though, so if you aren't an institution, maybe not for you.
Also there's a shout-out to Daniel Reetz and this forum at the end.
