5 stars out of 5
IDEAL is one of the largest distributors of Contex scanners. The IDEAL SuperWIDE 8050 system ($29,500) includes a Contex Magnum 8050 scanner that you can use with Contex WIDEimage software or IDEAL's ScanOS to scan and copy documents. IDEAL also offers other software: ScanDEX for scanning, indexing, and archiving converted paper documents, and Coala 2, a production-scale large-format color copying system.
|ScanOS lets you work in different work stations: a scan station, a copy station, a prescan station, and an archive station. Each one provides functionality that simplifies the scan, copy, and archive process.|
The SuperWIDE 8050 scans image areas up to 50" and accepts documents up to 51.5" wide. The SuperWIDE 8050 performed well with the test scan, capturing a D-size, 24-bit scan at 400dpi in 1 minute, 31 seconds. Image quality is enhanced through real-time hardware-based filters and color feature extraction. Support for area diffusion logic further enhances the detail of documents that contain mixed photographic and line-art elements. Capturing color at 36 bits provides superior precision, and color fidelity is achieved through the use of industry-standard ICC profiles and closed-loop calibration.
What differentiates the IDEAL SuperWIDE scanning system from the others
is the ScanOS software. ScanOS provides a single field index, easy-to-use
tool to scan, copy, and archive documents. ScanOS supports all IDEAL scanners
as well as all TWAIN-compatible scanners. Its copy feature supports all
Windows printers. In addition, ScanOS directly supports Xerox 8825/8830
and Océ 9400 printers, increasing the output speed of these devices.
Within the ScanOS archive, you can search for previous scans and copies
or manage multiple-page documents. The ODBC-compliant ScanOS database
is upgradable to the ScanDEX Database for digital archiving. You can log
images and associated information into a searchable database and provide
network and online access to your document archives. Highly Recommended.
