Scanner system with color calibration template and automatic RGB Level-approximation for multi system use.
2007 Parallax altitude!
A parallax free image at 1200dpi is achieved by using a special lens system.
2008 Development of the new S1 scanner!
Coverage 420 x 550 mm. Complete hardware-software development of the CCD camara and the mirror carriage. Computers equipped with quad CPU 64. AOI evaluation has been increased by 100% by the Quad CPU.
2009 Rectification of the scanner image.
Through the rectification software the scanner image is 100% identical to the calibration target. According to this, the test plan exchange from one system to another can be done without loosing time! Over 500 systems sold wordwide.
