New HD Ultra Wide Format Scanner Series from Contex

Now Offers 48-bit Color Processing, 8-inch-per-second Scanning;Comes Standard with 1200 dpi, GB Ethernet

Herndon, VA -- July 4, 2012 -- 
Contex, the world's leading developer of wide format scanning and imaging solutions, today announces a host of enhancements to the HD Ultra wide format scanner series. Released less than a year ago to rave reviews, the HD Ultra raises the bar even higher with unprecedented speed, color accuracy, and imaging processing. The wide format device now scans at an astounding 8 inches per second in color, or 642 ISO A0 documents per hour -- clocking in at twice the speed of its competitors. New color spaces, with color accuracy ensured by X-Rite, give users additional options to represent scanned colors. The full 48-bit color image processing feature also delivers unmatched image reproduction. Watch the HD Ultra in action at www.contex.com/video .

"We are delivering the fastest, most advanced wide format scanners in the market at competitive prices," states Morten Nielsen, Product Manager, Contex A/S. "The new HD Ultra with Adobe RGB and additional color spaces sets new standards for quality in wide format scanning. This is a tremendous advantage in productivity for our customers."

New Color Spaces with X-Rite for Color Accuracy

The HD Ultra boasts new color spaces, Adobe RGB and Device RGB. Adobe RGB, the preferred choice of many color professionals, allows for differences in very bright and saturated colors. Device RGB delivers colors as they are scanned, maintaining all the variations registered by the scanner. The default sRGB color space transforms the scanned colors into the sRGB standard, resulting in vivid images. Color accuracy with the HD Ultra is ensured with X-Rite ICC profiles.

Additionally, the new HD Ultra provides unparalleled color reproduction with full 48-bit color processing, unlike the traditional 48-bit capture and 24-bit processing from other scanners. It also produces both the 24-bit (processed from 48-bit) and the full 48-bit raw image TIFF files. The greater bit-depth--delivering more than 280 trillion colors versus only millions--gives users unprecedented control over the scanned image.

Pricing and Availability

The new HD Ultra is available in six models. Users can choose color or monochrome models with varying scanning speeds and width. All models are fully upgradable and come standard with 1200 dpi and GB Ethernet.

The HD Ultra is also available as an MFP, which turns a user's large-format printer into a copier while saving space.

The new HD Ultra begins shipping in July. Pre-orders are available through Contex's distribution channel. For more information about HD Ultra, view www.contex.com/video
