The SmartLF SGi series 36″ scanners are perfect for capturing sharply defined detail on technical drawings and maps as well as the vibrant, accurate colors needed by graphics professionals. SmartLF SGi series large format scanners have all the advantages of CCD technology’s superior color imaging – the ability to scan a wide gamut of colors and a high dynamic range (ability to see detail in dark and light areas) – combined with 1200 dpi optical resolution, the highest optical resolution available in any CCD wide format scanner in the market today. This scanner is perfect for capturing vibrant, accurate colors for graphics professionals as well as sharply defined line detail on technical documents and maps.
SmartLF SGi scanners use the advanced SureDrive paper transport system to maintain accurate document positioning as the document passes through the scanner. Combining this with the ClearView bright white bi-directional LED illumination system ensures that with SG even folded documents scan accurately and as shadow-free as possible. Images are scanned using 48-bits (color) or 16-bits (monochrome), with the best 24 and 8-bits selected as image data respectively.
SmartLF SGi is the first scanner from Colortrac to have 2GB of onboard scan data memory. This ensures smooth progress of the document through the scanner even if the computer experiences sudden sluggishness or the Ethernet network is unexpectedly busy.
The SmartLF SGi has six CCDs across the scan width to minimize geometric distortion, more than any other similarly sized scanner. Traditional 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 monocoque camera chassis.
