The Opus digitization process was designed specifically for academic libraries, museums and archives. Use Opus FreeFlow to build digital assets for preservation, archive, digital collections for the Web, and for viewing software. Its image treatment processes such as fan, gutter and book curvature removal, and content location and registration, are dramatically faster and easier to use than photo editing software.

Opus FreeFlow operates a wide array of preservation quality scanners and allows for the import of existing images as well. It then groups images into objects (i.e. books), which are easily managed and processed. Finally, it renders those objects into a variety of derivatives.

With Opus FreeFlow 4-tab interface, users can switch dynamically between scanning, image treatment and outputting derivatives. Multipage objects can be reopened and reprocessed at any time. Pages can be deleted and rescanned and new pages can be scanned and inserted. Unlimited derivatives can be created with variations in image size, resolution, format and file type.

Opus FreeFlow is fully compatible with Opus Digitization Workflow software. While objects are in the middle of the Opus workflow, they can be opened with Opus FreeFlow for additional scanning, image modification and derivative generation.

Hierarchical Metadata

(with Templates)

OAI

Opus support for the Open Archive Initiative (OAI) takes on several forms. Opus has the ability to generate export derivative sets which can be added into an OAI-compliant metadata repository and made available via the OAI-PMH to any OAI compliant metadata harvesters. The DLSG operates and manages the cloud infrastructure necessary to support this need, thus freeing our users from having to acquire and maintain the expertise to make their chosen objects available to the digital archive community at large. For example, this feature of Opus allows its users to easily contribute to the Digital Public Library Project (DPLA) with just a few clicks.

The underlying object resources (images) described in the OAI-compliant metadata export may either be hosted by the OPUS customers themselves or the resources can be uploaded to a DLSG-maintained archive repository as part of the OAI publishing process.

Published objects can be further queried and made available by Opus's support for the OAI-ORE project. In addition to the cloud based OAI publishing features, the DLSG cloud repository allows the user community of Opus Systems to share or exchange Opus objects among themselves.

Opus Hierarchical Metadata Capture

Opus' hierarchical metadata capture is controlled by templates that can be created and modified to fit virtually any requirements. Input field characteristics include :required/optional, repeatable/one occurrence only and other characteristics that can be specified when templates are constructed of modified. Opus provides several generic templates to capture the data necessary to create virtual library output formats.

Opus Output: Image Derivatives & Metadata

One of Opus' most popular file format outputs of the images is PDF and PDF/A. Opus Image Treatment function publishes PDF images with consistent sizes. When coupled with Opus metadata output the PDF is presented with bookmarks hyperlinked to the section within the images, making content search extraordinarily easy. Opus' OCR function adds full text search giving the user the ultimate search tool.

Content Stabilization

Content Stabilization is a general term for automatic and manual varieties of image treatment that can be performed during or after scan time with the purpose of producing clean, clear and consistently formatted digital images.

Book curve, skew, fan, gutter and black edges are automatically adjusted to render clean, consistent margins of uniform size and text position for a clean, professional look.

Text correction

Content Stabilization is typically applied automatically in batch after scan time and includes features like:

Content Stabilization
  • Book Curve Collection
  • Image Deskew
  • Margin Alignment and Uniformity
  • Horizontal and Vertical Centering
  • Black Border Removal
  • Finger Image Removal
  • Bleed through Correction
  • Reflection/Glare Correction

One more of the image treatment features above can be applied to a single image, to selected images, or all the images in a given batch. Manual Content Stabilization allows users even more precise control of the image treatment listed above and can be applied to one, many or all images in the same group.

Opus FreeFlow and Opus WorkFlow Features Comparison

Opus FreeFlow is an application that provides the scanning, image treatment and derivative creation capabilities of the full Opus Digitization Workflow system outside of its structured project management environment.

Unlike Opus Workflow, Opus FleeFlow doesn't perform automatic archiving or manage workflow. Opus FreeFlow is also fully compatible with Opus Workflow digitization software. They can be used independently or together. For example, while objects are in the middle of the Opus Workflow, they can be opened with Opus FreeFlow for additional scanning, image modification and creation of derivatives.

Freedom to Digitize Ad Hoc & On-Demand Photos, Maps, Documents, Books...

Opus FreeFlow digitization software provides all the necessary functionality to create digital books and other materials from scanned images. Prior to Opus, digitization had to be performed one image at a time using photos editors for image treatment, and content managers for keying metadata. With Opus FreeFlow, after scanning and treating images, digital derivative images are output to destinations such as digital content management systems, and digital master images to digital archive systems.

Opus Digitization Workflow software allows for the use temporary workers with minimal training while minimizing the chance of errors and ensuring that preservation quality standards are met. Unlike FreeFlow, Opus Workflow applies somewhat rigid managements principles. Opus FreeFlow and Opus Digitization Workflow work seamlessly together and can be used by a trained digitization staff member at any time to perform processing and output independently of Opus Workflow.

Opus FreeFlow also works with third-party software. For example, if a user wishes to perform an image treatment function supported by a popular photo editor, the press of a button in Opus FreeFlow can launch the third-party application with the current image ready for editing. Once the edits are completed and saved, exiting the photo editor will return the user to Opus FreeFlow with the image showing the modifications that were made.

Bookeye® 4 V3

With this new member of the Bookeye® family, Image Access placed an emphasis on developing a scanner which is compact, easy to operate and competitively priced; to bring high end professional scanning to an even larger population of users. The efficient Bookeye® 4 V3 digitizes source material such as bound documents at high speeds in up to 400 dpi optical resolution and formats up to DIN A3.

Over 17 years of electronic, optical and mechanical engineering experience went into the creation and manufacture of the Bookeye® 4 models. The clever mirror mechanism captures the document precisely from edge to edge, whether it is a flat document or a book open at an angle of 120 degrees.

The V-shaped book cradle was optimized to reduce the risk of damage to book spines and binding during digitization. The book cradle holds the open book at an angle of 120 degrees; enough to effectively scan the contents of a page, while gently preserving the original subject matter.

Book scanning made easy

Bookeye® 4 V3 has all the advantages of a more expensive standalone device. Outfitted with an integrated color touchscreen and monitor, Bookeye® 4 V3 can reach unrivaled scanning speeds and process large volumes of data independent of any external peripheral devices - a typical feature of all Image Access scanners.

It takes approximately 1.1 seconds for the Bookeye® 4 V3 to capture and process the images of two pages of a DIN A3 sized book scanned at 200 dpi optical resolution. Once the image is on the screen, modifications can be made to scan parameters such as brightness, color or contrast without having to rescan. Users operate the system intuitively, guided by clear and well structured menu commands on the touchscreen. Scanned images can be saved to a USB flash drive, sent via email, printed on a connected or network printer, or uploaded to an FTP Server or Cloud.

Bookeye® 4 V3's solid build, innovative features and competitive pricing make it an ideal book copier for large groups of users; for example, in a university library. Some of the advantages of using a Bookeye® 4 instead of a standard copier include the Bookeye®'s built-in book cradle for gently handling bound materials, its speed and simplicity of operation, and the fact that the resulting digital images substantially reduce, and in most cases eliminate, the need to print scanned material.

Key Features of BookEye 4

  • Easy installation via Scan2Net® Technology
  • Compatible with Windows, Linux, Mac OS, Unix
  • Laser-assisted auto-focus and profile detection
  • Print on any network printer
  • Remote maintenance and analysis

Applications

  • Newspapers, periodicals, tabloids, catalogs and magazines
  • Books and delicate materials
  • Bound and stapled documents

MORE FEATURES

High Speed Scanning:High Speed Scanning: Image Access scanners always run at rated speeds regardless of how powerful your computer is. We do a full scan into the scanner memory at full speed, without any stops. We're the only scanner company that does that. Only the time between scanning and output are dependent upon the transfer speed of the network and the computer, and even our transfer rate is twice as fast as competing products because data is transferred to your workstation at 1 Gigabit speeds, while other scanners use significantly slower transfer rates (1/2 Gigabit or less). Learn more

Works Well With Others:Create JPEG, PDF (both searchable and image-only), or TIFF file formats and save to network (PC, server, FTP).

Easy to Use:Single button scanning, optional foot pedal, built-in display, automatic laser-assisted profile detection and automatic format recognition ensure uncompromised scan results.

High Duty Cycle:High Duty Cycle: Bookeye scanners are designed for high-volume, professional use. Their duty cycles far exceed that of desktop scanners.

Clear, Crisp, Colorful Scans: Fast scanning in B&W, grayscale and color, high-quality resolution of up to 400 dpi. We've made it our business for over 15 years now to be experts in image resolution, and since there is some confusion among users regarding this matter, we've provided a white paper that debunks some longstanding myths. Learn more

State of the Art Illumination: Bookeye's bright white LED illumination lasts significantly longer than other lighting systems. LED lights also consume less power and produce far less heat.

Easy Setup: Bookeye scanners connect over your network using standard IP (Internet Protocol) addresses and can be operated by a standard browser without drivers or add-on cards.

No Warm Up Time: Bookeye scanners are ready to scan anytime you are. Other scanners can require several minutes to warm up before use.

Room to Grow: Firmware upgrades are available online and are directly downloadable to the Bookeye using a standard browser.

Environmentally Responsible: We all know that scanning and saving images to email, USB, etc., rather than photocopying or printing saves paper and toner, but it's hard to get a feel for just how much savings are likely. Click here to see an annual report from MIT describing their savings.

Remote Scanner Management: You're in full control from any browser. Change any and all scanner settings remotely or using Bookeye?s built-in touch screen.

User Statistics Monitoring: Bookeye lets you manage and monitor the usage, statistics and settings of each scanner you own. The reports are automatically uploaded and available online from your web browser.
