BCS-2® Professional

is a newly designed scan software for automating and unifying digitisation processes. BCS-2® simplifies the quality-conscious digitalisation of bound, printed or graphic materials.


The workflow and the user interface of the scan software can be adapted to the respective requirements. BCS-2® is modular and supports the functions of the certified scanner models.


The scan software enables automated, optionally manual, post processing of scans on external workstations, detached from the scanners. Images can be seamlessly integrated into the workflow management system MyBib eDoc® or in the electronic presentation platform MyBib eL®.
