Key technologies in Contex HD Ultra series scanners.
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 HD Ultra series of scanners utilizes a long list of key technologies unique to a Contex scanner.
The HD Ultra series scanners captures all details with advanced 48-bit CCD technology. By combining CCD with Contex Natural Light and high quality camera optics you are ensured the best possible results in every scan.
Like photography, scanned image quality depends heavily on lens quality. Using lenses that are specifically designed for the scanning resolution will ensure against various problems, from uneven sharpness to chromatic errors and color fringing (black lines show up in color). This is why Contex uses custom Fujifilm lenses in all CCD based scanners.
Full 48 bit workflow
To get the best results, your scanner and software should work with full 48-bit data. Where other scanners ignore some of this data, the HD Ultra is the world’s only wide format scanner with true 48-bit.
X-Rite ICC profiles
Using 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 sRGB
Contex HD Ultra scanners have several different options for color space. In addition to the common sRGB the HD Ultra 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
The light source is custom fluorescent with a high Color Rendering Index (CRI > 95) to produce the most accurate colors possible. The CCD itself is high resolution and capable of capturing 48-bit color, but Contex have the unique ability to process the entire 48-bit color data - resulting in the most accurate color images you can get from a scanner today.
Delivering 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 computeAccelerates workflows
