Colortrac SGi Large Format Color Scanner with CCD Technology

An excellent choice for graphical users and well and architectural firms

By Large Documents - February 7, 2021

Large Document Solutions and Colortrac are introducing the SmartLF SGi  series 36″ and 44″ series of scanners. These scanners are perfect for capturing sharply defined detail on technical drawings and maps as well as high resolution graphics.  The newest Colortrac scanner roll fed series.
SmartLF SGi series large format scanners provide all the detail of CCD technology.  Superior color imaging – the ability to scan a large range of colors and the ability to see detail in dark and light areas.  Don’t forget the 1200 dpi optical resolution, the highest optical resolution available in any CCD wide format scanner in industry. Speaking CCD technology, the SmartLF SGi has six CCDs across the scan width to minimize geometric distortion, more than any other similarly sized scanner.  Other CCD scanners are prone to stitch and accuracy issues caused by sensor misalignment. These are minimized in the SmartLF SGi by housing the six CCDs within a rigid camera chassis.

SmartLF SGi is the first scanner from Colortrac to have 2GB of onboard scan data memory. This ensures even the largest scans, a smooth progress of the transfer of document data to the computer.

The SmartLF SGi SureDrive  paper transport system applies the minimum force necessary for preserving delicate originals, while achieving the required traction and accuracy to ensure images are sharp and shadow free.

The SGi series thick media system is improved.  The Colortrac Gx+T series was great with thick media. This newer model has made significant improvements with thick media and more precise.  To raise the lid and increase the thickness capability of the scanner raise the lever on the left-hand side of the scanner lid to its maximum position then load the document manually.   Lower the lever to grip the media and begin scanning.  All media must be loaded panel-side justified with SGi.

With the new model comes a new imaging software.  The new SmartWorks Imaging is a very nice enhancement from Smartworks Pro.  Optimized all the way through, SmartWorks Imaging is clearer and easier to navigate than SmartWorks Pro. With a faster performance, revised preset control, better printer drivers and a new multi-page thumbnail pop-out feature, SmartWorks Imaging is the perfect productivity partner for SmartLF SCi and SmartLF SGi large format scanners.

Large Document Solutions is very excited about this new Colortrac SGi series scanner.  To sum up:
• Perfect for any type of document
• Realistic color and excellent size accuracy
• Accepts thick media up to 15 mm
• Designed for high volume
• Low maintenance
• Choose between 36' and 44'
