Key technologies in Contex IQ scannersAs the world’s largest developer and producer of wide format imaging solutions, Contex leads the market with innovative technology and advanced scan and copy software solutions. The IQ series of scanners utilizes a long list of key technologies unique to a Contex scanner.
i1 profiles from X-RiteUsing X-Rite generated profiles ensures the highest possible color accuracy for the demanding customers. X-Rite is the global leader in color science and technology.
Adobe RGB, Device RGB and sRGBContex IQ series scanners have several different options for color space. In addition to the common sRGB the IQ scanners also offers color spaces with wider gamut as preferred by color specialists.
Adobe RGB and Device RGB has a larger color gamut than sRGB, hereby allowing differences in very bright and saturated colors to be maintained in the file.
Contex Natural Light
Natural light is diffused light that creates soft shadows. Single sided LED light traditionally causes hard shadows. Dual sided LED light normally creates 2 hard shadows. Contex New Dual Diffusion CIS Modules in IQ scanners ensures the must natural representation of any image.
Live Matching of CIS modules
Traditional CIS scan without live matching.
The left side is darker than the right side.
New in IQ scanners: Live matching of CIS modules.
While scanning Contex Live Matching technology will monitor images and correct differences from one CIS module to the next. Without this there might be noticeable difference between CIS modules.
This unique technology is a key part of providing Market leading CIS solutions.
New CFR TechnologyContex innovative Color Fringe Removal has been further improved with the IQ scanners. Color fringe is a result of CIS scanners using flashing red, green and blue LED lights. This causes black lines and text to have colored edges especially when scanning at lower resolutions.
Thanks to Contex innovative thinking this effect has been completely removed in the IQ scanners with CFR.
Traditional CIS scan without CFR of a typical 10 pt text.
Notice the colored edges on the letters.
Scan with CFR on IQ scanners.
Notice no colored edges.
xDTR2Delivering 3 times the bandwidth of USB2, our unique Gigabit Ethernet implementation with xDTR2 is lightning fast and accelerates workflows even further via network sharing, where scans can be controlled from any computer.
Nextimage software delivers a complete set of tools to ensure image quality for both archival and printing. Never before has it been so easy to get professional results - with minimal adjustment.
SnapScan: Scan - Enhance - Save
With the new SnapScan feature you scan, enhance and save your originals in a single flow. No rescanning needed. It is the perfect link between your scanner, digital storage, existing applications, and your printers.
SnapScan makes scanning faster while protecting your fragile originals by allowing the operator full control over image adjustments without having to rescan.
Auto-generated 8-bit color palette
lets you automatically generate a palette from the existing 24-bit scan.
ICC Color ManagementNextimage supports ICC/ICM profiles. It can embed ICC profiles in scanned files, whether it is JPG, JPEG 2000 or TIFF, preserving colors when files are loaded into other applications.
You can also use ICC/ICM profiles to manage colors when making copies with Nextimage.
Intelligent Sharpen/Smoothing Filters
Nextimage is loaded with new image processing options. One of these is the smart new Smoothen filter that intelligently removes pattern noise without blurring the edges in the original. Combine it with the sharpen algorithm to get razor sharp results with smooth noiseless colors.
Closed Loop Calibration (CLC)Nextimage also comes with built-in closed loop calibration for managing colors when making copies. The CLC wizard helps you create a media profile that is optimized for the individual media in the printer. Simply print a reference pattern on your printer, and then scan it to create the perfect relationship between your scanner and printer.
New Adaptive Thresholding AlgorithmNextimage also comes with a newly developed B&W algorithm that combines background cleaning and preservation of grayscales in one mode. Use it for both clean new originals and for low contrast blueprints.
The Contex scanner has great texture detail and color accuracy. It allows us to capture materials of varying thickness and provide our clients with a high-quality product. Time savings is a big benefit, too.Viz-It owner and professional photographer Scott Davis, USA
