ArtSystems, announces the launch of Colortrac SmartLF Scan!

During ArtSystems special resellers event, ‘Focus on Innovation 2015’, the latest Colortrac innovation was unveiled to the UK. The Colortrac SmartLF Scan! is a range of two, wide format scanners that are light, self-contained, intuitively simple to use and completely portable.

The new scanner has a built-in 6GB memory so operators can work wherever the job takes them, even without access to a computer. Supplied with its own tough carry-case the SmartLF Scan! also has semi-automated resolution control for simplicity of operation anywhere, in your own premises, on-site, or in the client’s offices.

With a scanning width of either 610mm or 914mm the two scanners in the range weigh just 5.2kg and 7kg and yet have all the facilities a modern operator would expect. Wireless or Ethernet connection mean scans can be saved directly to the PC or the Cloud when in the office, or to a USB memory card when on site.

ArtSystems’ Ted Freer, Sales Divisional Manager, Design, is enthusiastic about the possibilities opened up by these new additions to the Colortrac portfolio. He says: “SmartLF Scan! units offer real entry level affordability and are fully portable, and by that I mean they are small and light enough that you can easily wheel them in their boxes onto the train, tube or into a taxi. What’s more, when you arrive on site or your client’s office you still get the high quality scans you would expect from the brand, and they’re wide format with an optical resolution of 600dpi.

“When away from your PC you can make a scanned record of up to eight design changes or discussion documents and let your clients see how careful you’re being with their needs, you can even leave a copy of everything you’ve scanned on a USB memory stick. And then, when you're back at base, share the scans with your team and you’re good to go.”

Based around a small Windows software file the scanners can work with originals up to 1270mm long and as small as 150mm wide with an accuracy to +/- one pixel or .02%.

Freer concludes: “The SmartLF Scan! units tick every box when it comes to innovation and user-friendly precision, and they come in their own robust, wheeled boxes for ease of transport. They set their own benchmark amongst the very latest generation of wide format scanners.”
