Contex has launched the HD Ultra X 6000, its widest, fastest and most productive 60 inch CCD scanner.
The HD Ultra X 6000 is a premium scanner with multiple productivity boosting capabilities to give customers long term value and a quick return on investment. The HD Ultra X 6000 scanner comes in two powerful models and will be available from distributors worldwide by September 2018.
‘We are excited to introduce the Contex HD Ultra X 6000, a scanner with numerous distinctions, many of which are based on customer feedback,’ commented Jacob Bendix, vice president and global head of sales and marketing, Global Scanning Denmark. ‘The HD Ultra X 6000 is a scanner like no other. Customers will appreciate the advanced design and engineering that saves time throughout the scanning workflow. The quality results make this scanner a valuable tool in any environment.’
The scanner allows users to capture originals up to 61.8 inches, at an unprecedented 17.8 ips — at what the company says is 30% faster than any other scanner in its class. True size detection and instant on capabilities cut valuable seconds from production time. Another productivity boost is the new Contex AIO app, which allows users to operate the Nextimage software from their smart device.
The Contex HD Ultra X 6000 also boasts the fastest data transfer of any scanner. It features both GB Ethernet xDTR2.5 and USB 3.0 SuperSpeed xDTR3 as data transfer technologies. The throttle buffer control eliminates scanner pauses, allowing operators to maintain the fastest scanning speeds, from start to finish. Users no longer wait for scanned data to be processed; they can continuously feed documents to scan.
The scanner offers CCD technology to give users the best image quality possible. The wide format scanner also boasts the highest colour rendering index (CRI) thanks to Contex Perfect Light, which uses the latest LED technology combined with specially developed diffusion filters.
Several exclusive technologies also deliver the most advanced colour matching and the sharpest scans. These include Contex’s lens spherical correction technology and accuracy lens enhancement (ALE), which minimise optical distortion. The HD Ultra X 6000 scanner also boasts X-Rite ICC colour technology and Fujifilm camera lenses, which deliver large depth of focus — 7mm — and CCD optics of 1200 dpi. The depth of focus enables the HD Ultra X 6000 scanner to capture documents of all types — especially thick, delicate, or with irregularities — with ease.
Optimal Thickness Adjustment Control (OTAC) enables users to quickly adjust the scanner to the required paper thickness, with just the press of a lever. Feather mode also protects delicate originals and extra thin documents.
Contex’s new, speed matched roller system makes it fast and easy to load documents, and eliminates skewing. Operators can choose between centre and side loading, or use the adjustable paper guide for smaller documents.
Another notable feature is the scanner’s static free, touchless glass system and steel, anti-static feed table that minimises friction. It also reduces maintenance costs over time from worn scanner glass.
The HD Ultra X 6000 scanner is available as a standalone scanner (Contex AIO optional) or a ScanStation Pro configuration, which includes a stand, touchscreen monitor, and Nextimage Repro software (Contex AIO optional). The HD Ultra X 6000 scanner can be networked to any leading printer.
