The Moravian Gallery in Brno is the second largest art museum in the Czech Republic. For digitizing their content including problematic books a high resolution large format book scanners was required. They chose the SCAN MASTER 0 4838 with Book Spine Assist feature. It allows to scan books with either a very instabile or a very tough book fold. The additional lifting column supports the center of the book during the scanning process. SMA is the only vendor in the market that offers such a feature.
