Introducing the Laser Focus,
Introducing the Laser Focus, a new add-on accessory for BookDrive Pro.
The Laser Focus projects red line onto the V-shaped cradle for the camera to lock focus, and disappears just before the camera actually scan the book. Controlled by the BookDrive Capture software, everything occurs automatically.
- Produce a crisp/clear focus every time.
- Eliminate focus failure on blank pages.
The Laser Focus works in sync with the Auto Capture Switch.
You will get a sharper image that is consistent in every scan,
regardless of the content on the book, or even a blank page.

Failed Focus? A Thing of the Past.
Book content varies by page. Some pages are blank. Some have content on the edge or corner. Some pages are fully black. How do you ensure that the camera's autofocus will shoot crisp image from beginning to end? The red laser line functions as a consistent object for every shot.
It goes on and off when needed. No effect to the book. Speed of your scan operation is still as fast as it was before. In fact, you will finish your job faster because you will never have to worry about occasional blurred shots or focus failure issue anymore.
The Laser Focus is safe for users. It projects laser line onto the V glass bouncing to the rear of the machine, not the user. The type of laser used is in Class 3R category, which is considered safe if handled carefully. Many laser pointers that you commonly see belong in this same category.
The Laser Focus is available in 2 ways:
