The Colortrac SmartLF SGi and SmartLF SCi large format scanners deliver fast performance, with optimised preset controls and an extended list of internal printer drivers to connect directly to large format printers. SmartWorks Imaging, the newest member of the SmartWorks software family, is a fresh implementation of the scan once workflow that is easier to navigate than its predecessor, SmartWorks Pro.
