Contex has announced enhancements to its HD Ultra wide format scanner series. The wide format device now scans at 8 inches per second in color, or 642 ISO A0 documents per hour. New color spaces, with color accuracy ensured by X-Rite, give users additional options to represent scanned colors. The full 48-bit color image processing feature also delivers improved image reproduction.
New color spaces include Adobe RGB and Device RGB. Adobe RGB allows for differences in very bright and saturated colors. Device RGB delivers colors as they are scanned, maintaining all the variations registered by the scanner. The default sRGB color space transforms the scanned colors into the sRGB standard. Color accuracy with the HD Ultra is ensured with X-Rite ICC profiles.
Additionally, the new HD Ultra provides full 48-bit color processing, and produces both the 24-bit (processed from 48-bit) and the full 48-bit raw image TIFF files.
The new HD Ultra is available in six models. Users can choose color or monochrome models with varying scanning speeds and width. All models are fully upgradable and come standard with 1200 dpi and GB Ethernet. The HD Ultra is also available as an MFP, which turns a user’s large-format printer into a copier while saving space.
