A fast scanner

How fast? It scans a single page in less than 1 second.

So, theoretically speaking, you can scan 60 pages in 1 minute. In the real world, however, we will say you can scan around 40 pages in 1 minute because the actual scanning speed is still limited by how fast your hands can manipulate a book’s pages before the scanner.

What makes ET16 so fast?

Know The Technology Inside

    Digital Camera-Based System

    We are using a digital camera-based scanning system instead of the traditional linear image sensor based system, that helps to archive a much faster scanning.

    With the traditional linear image sensor scanners, the sensor array and light source need to move across the pane, reading the entire area, and then go backward before scanning the next page which is a drawn-out process.

    ET16 works totally differently. It takes a snapshot of the document placed beneath its lens in a split second, much like a camera, so it is amazingly fast.

    SONY 16M-Pixel HD CMOS Sensor

    ET16 is equipped with 16M-Pixel HD CMOS Sensor, when compared with the CCD sensors commonly used in other overhead scanners, CMOS sensors have no limit to the number of data readout channels, so its data readout is quicker. When it comes to the scanner, that means ultra-high-speed scanning.

    CPU and Memory

    A scanner is not just about capturing the image, it needs to process the image too.

    ET16 has a 480MHz 32-bit MIPS CPU on board, working together with the 1GB DDR3 cache memory, 2GB NAND flash storage, ET16 can complete the image processing (flattening the image, removing fingers, auto crop, de-skew etc.) quickly and smoothly.

A Non-destructive Scanning solution

Book Scanned Without Damages

ET16 is an overhead scanner which offers a perfect non-destructive scanning solution. With traditional scanners, bound material scanning requires unbinding in advance which is time consuming and destructive. it is very unlikely that your book/bound reports/delicate manuscripts can remain intact at the end of their ”scanning journeys” with traditional scanners.

With ET16, scanning a book is safe and easy. Just placing the book beneath the scanner’s lens and pressing the scan button, your book will remain intact from the beginning to the end.

Designed With The User in Mind

With ET16, scanning was never so easy before, all you need to do is press the button and the scanner will capture the image, flatten it, crop it, de-skew it, purify the background, remove your fingers from the image and send the image to your PC via USB or your Czur Cloud account via WiFi.

ET takes care of the all the hassles, that is why we call it SMART.

An All Purpose Scanner

ET16 is an all purpose scanner.

ET is a digital camera based scanning system, so the limitation is less. Objects with a size up to A3 can be scanned by ET including books, magazines, business cards, receipts or even 3D objects.

Proprietary Image Processing Algorithm
First-Class OCR Engine from Abbyy

Czur’s proprietary image processing algorithm is what makes ET outstanding. It helps to flatten the image, cut the edge, purify the background and remove fingers from the image automatically and quickly.

When it comes to OCR, Czur has implement the industry leader – Abbyy’s FineReader Engine in Czur Scanner programme.

FineReader Engine can recognise 184 languages with high accuracy and transform the scanned file into searchable and editable PDF files with ease.

Czur Cloud

Uploading, Processing, Storing and Sharing

When connected to the internet, ET will upload the scanned files to Czur Cloud automatically so you can access your scanned files anywhere, any-time.
When a scanned image was uploaded, Czur Cloud will process the image for you automatically. You can even run OCR on the cloud if you need.
Each Czur Cloud account holder has 10GB free secured storage which is sufficient to store and manage your scanned files. You will never need to worry losing your scanned files again, they are always there waiting for you.
Simply generate a share link and send it to anyone you wish to share with, they will then be able to download the files on-line.

Visualizer and Document Camera Function

With the 16M-Pixel camera on board, ET16 can work as a visualizer and document Camera with ease.

Simply connecting it to an external monitor/projector through HDMI, everything seen by the camera will be displayed/projected in real time with 1080p full HD resolution at a frame rate of 30fps.
