  • Lex Air uses a high-resolution camera that recognizes down to 6pt text. It has a superb depth of field allowing even the thickest of books to be captured with ease.
  • Glossy document capture: Although it has integrated lighting, the camera and software have been optimized to capture without the light, meaning even glossy magazines can be captured without difficulty.
