  • Digital scanning in just 3.4 seconds per 8-1/2″ × 11″ original
  • Flexible scanning modes for books and single pages — and selectable scan resolution from 200 dpi to 600 dpi allows you to match scanning power to the needs of each original.
  • Book scanners feature an 11.69″ × 17.00″ scanning area to accommodate oversized bound volumes, ledgers, artwork, maps, archival records and other large documents.
  • Other features include:
    • Direct PC interface with USB connector and TWAIN driver for scanning color originals to your computer for use in websites, desktop publishing or Email.
    • Selectable image modes to fine-tune output for Color Text, Color Photos, Grayscale Text, Grayscale Photos, or Line Art (bitmap for text or line art).
    • Automatically compensates for page curvature and automatically erases centerline shadows, page borders, and images of fingers holding down pages for scanning.
    • 3D Scanning lets you digitize the images of objects placed on the scanning surface of Konica Minolta PS5000C book scanners.

Direct PC Interface. A TWAIN driver and USB connector allow Konica Minolta PC5000C book scanners to scan color originals to your desktop computer for use in documents, desktop publishing, websites, Email distribution or fix transmission.

Two Page Scanning. One-page/two-page scanning modes allow you to scan two spread pages of a book or magazine up to 11″ × 17″, scan “right page” or “left page” consecutively, or scan each page separately.

Selectable Resolution. Choose the ideal balance of speed and image resolution — 200 dpi, 240 dpi, 300 dpi, 400 dpi, even 600 dpi for highly detailed originals.

Versatile Image Modes. Optimize scanning output for five kinds of originals: Color Text, Color Photo, Grayscale Text, Grayscale Photo, or Line Art.

Exposure Control. Book scanners offer the option for fully automatic or manual exposure (without optional manual switch) so you can lighten or darken your scanned image through 9 levels.

Color and Sharpness Control. Sharpness control allows you to adjust image sharpness in 5 levels, depending upon the detail you need and color adjustments let you correct for hue, saturation and lightness to achieve the best possible scanning results.

Image Rotation. Rotate your scanned image electronically through 90° clockwise, 180°, or 90° counter-clockwise.

Automatic Curvature Compensation. Corrects warped text lines or compressed text at center when bound volumes don’t lie flat.

Auto Erase & Auto Masking. Auto erasure of centerline shadows and outside borders and auto masking of images of fingers holding pages down as you scan.

3D Scanning. Lets you place objects on the scanning surface and digitize their images; for small objects, a white sheet covering the surface will insure optimum exposure.

Simple Operation. Book scanners offer intuitive on-screen menus and logical controls that make color scanning simple, even for first-time users.
