Click™ Scanners

Click™, Click Mini - developed specifically for the self-service market

When people see the new KIC Click™ or Click Mini for the first time, the most common expression is "it's so beautiful." And with True2Touch, it's as easy to use as it is beautiful. Our new and exciting Click Mini book scanner achieves a far more affordable price point for face-up book scanning than ever before. Are there any compromises? You decide.

The KIC Click™ captures book content as fast as 1 page per second! With a bed size 30% larger than its nearest competitor, it captures up to 21x16 inch books and materials at an uncompromising resolution of 300dpi.

The KIC Click Mini captures 30 book pages per minute! It produces sharp, clear images in full color at 300dpi for instant access on tablets, notebooks, smart devices and easy transfer to desktop PCs and servers. Its 12.25 x 19.2 inch bed size is significantly larger than double-letter and is large enough for most book pages. Very large books can be scanned one page at a time sideways and the images rotated. And of course, it handles loose paper and other flat material, too.

Photocopiers, PCs, monitors and keyboards clutter up otherwise beautiful libraries across America. The smooth, triple-layer, pearlescent white KIC Click™ totally reverses that trend. It adds beauty to the most beautiful libraries. Inspired by an outstanding effort of the fledgling tablet industry to turn technology into something more like jewelry or a fashion accessory than a computer, the pearlescent KIC Click™ evokes comments like, "We care about the appearance of our library and this machine is over the top!"

The KIC Click™ and Click Mini perfectly complete the KIC family of self-serve digitizing systems. The KIC Bookeye 4 has the most durable production book scanner, the only book scanner with both V-cradle and flat modes, and the highest quality 600dpi of any scanner. The KIC Clicks are small, fast and beautiful, and the KIC BookEdge is cheaper than most floor standing black-and-white photocopiers. And since none of them use toner or paper, they're environmentally friendly and ultimately far cheaper to run than copiers.

Key Features of Click™ and Click Mini

The Click™'s and Click Mini's sleek look and elegant design put the full KIC self-serve digitization functionality into a mere 25(Click) / 20(Click Mini) inch width. It's large, 23(Click) / 22(Click Mini) inch touch screen and capture surface are at the perfect heights when placed on a typical table or desktop. Both Click™ and Click Mini also have an optional matching stand for freestanding operation. The optional KIC SmartDock feature can transfer 10-20 full-color pages per second directly to any smart device.

Unlike copiers and flatbed scanners, both KIC Click™ and Click Mini allow users to digitize books face-up, without damaging books by having to press them hard against a glass plate. The Click™'s / Click Mini's lightening speed is derived as much from its fast opto-electronics as from the fact that its face-up design obviates the need to flip books over and over again during the digitization process.

The Click™ and Click Mini produce beautiful, full-color images at no additional cost over black & white images! Searchable PDF's and editable text files are a snap to create. As with all KIC self-serve systems, scanner's text-to-speech capability produces audio files that can be played in any MP3 player. Studying and research have never been so easy!
