Key technologies in Contex IQ Quattro
As 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 Quattro scanner utilizes a long list of key technologies unique to a Contex scanner.
The IQ Quattro series scanners captures all details with advanced 48-bit CIS technology. By combining CIS with Contex Natural Light and high quality camera optics you are ensured the best possible results in every scan.
Adobe RGB, Device RGB and sRGB
Contex IQ Quattro scanners have several different options for color space. In addition to the common sRGB the IQ Quattro also offers color spaces with wider gamut as preferred by color specialists.
Adobe RGB has a larger color gamut than sRGB, hereby allowing differences in very bright and saturated colors to be maintained in the file. An ICC profile is embedded in Adobe RGB files to describe the color space, and to support ICC color management workflows.
Device RGB delivers colors as they are scanned. This means that all the variations registered by the scanner is maintained. By default an ICC profile is embedded in Device RGB files to describe the scanner's color space, and to support ICC color management workflows.
sRGB transforms the scanned colors into the sRGB standard. sRGB gives colorful and vivid images, and remains the default Color Space choice.
X-Rite ICC profilesUsing 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.
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.
