Poor Quality Documents
Large format scanning is about more than just pushing a piece of paper though the scanner. It is about how to get a fragile drawing through when it has been curled up for 10 or 20 years.”
Alan Darbyshire, Colortrac SmartLF large format scanner user.
SmartLF scanners look after your documents
Colortrac SmartLF wide format scanners have special transport systems that apply only gentle pressure to the document while achieving the required traction and accuracy to ensure that images are sharp and shadow free. SmartLF large format scanners are also carefully designed to avoid mechanisms where a document might snag or disappear under the rollers.
If you are scanning delicate documents, we recommend SmartWorks Pro software. The scan-it once technology employed by SmartWorks Pro software means that your document only needs to pass through the scanner once. If you accidentally scan with incorrect settings, you can adjust them in real time after the fact – there is no need to rescan the document. Other large format scanners would require a re-scan, or require you to use a “rocker mode” in order to select the correct settings, moving the document back and forth through the scanner many times and subjecting it to wear and a greater likelihood of damage.
Even folded documents scan sharp and shadow free
Bright illumination systems and advanced paper transport that smooths folded and wrinkled documents mean that Colortrac SmartLF wide format scanners capture even folded documents sharply and shadow free.
In addition, all CCD technology wide format scanners including the Colortrac SmartLF Gx+ CCD series, potentially suffer from sideways stitch errors if a fold in a document coincides with the join between two CCDs. SmartLF Gx+ wide format scanners use Colortrac’s patented “Adaptive Stitching” technology to prevent this type of stitch error occurring.
IAT quickly restores your dirty documents
If your documents are dirty, we recommend SmartWorks software. This allows you to quickly and easily restore your documents using interactive Intelligent Adaptive Thresholding. This cleans up your dirty documents better and faster – you can set threshold values on the fly without the need for time-wasting prescans.
