i confirm, there is a lot of diy (do it yourself).

but this software aims to facilitate the workflow:

it's a python program to remote the two cameras, shoot simultaneously,
download the image file, rename, rotate or apply whatever filter,
and finally prepare the scantailor project, or just package the book in
