Hollingworth & Moss Ltd
Bookbinding & Digitisation Specialists
Most books in circulation today should scan without any issues, there of course may be some limitations to certain bindings but we would look towards solutions to any issues. If you feel your books may pose a problem, please contact us so we can discuss the issues with you.
We have robotic book scanners that can digitise bound books at speeds of up to 2400 pages per hour with no damage to the binding. Destructive scanning is cheaper and can give further possibility to gain a better digital image in some circumstances. We have platforms to scan either way, of course depends if you require the book or material back.
Hollingworth & Moss Ltd cannot be held responsible for any breaches of copyright caused by the service we are supplying to our customers. It is your responsibility to establish the necessary copyright permissions for the material you require scanning. this will also be outlined in our terms and conditions email.

OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition. It refers to the process by which a scanned document is electronically analysed, so that the text information can be extracted from the image and reproduced as a text file. This process works on Colour / Greyscale & Bi-Tonal PDF's and OCR can be saved as separate .txt files.
How would you like to receive your files back?
Our preferential way to supply digital files back is via FTP although the future will be via Cloud Storage. We can also send files back via portable hard drive, USB, CD, DVD, Send Big File Systems, Dropbox or email.

We can virtually eliminate curvature in bound books during the scanning process, however sometimes it cannot be avoided.
Luckily we have some very good software that automatically removes all types of curvature in images as part of our basic process. Giving perfect outputs in all aspects.
This is possible. However you may need some additional software to do so. When selecting outputs we can convert your final files into Microsoft Word format which will enable direct editing. OpenOffice Software is a free alternative.
We use specialist software that lets us produce the smallest PDF files possible today, while delivering intelligent and searchable characteristics with excellent image quality. We guarantee you results other products cannot even promise. Ask us for a free sample to find out.
