Point of Beginning

Colortrac will Exhibit the Latest SmartLF Wide Format GIS Scanners at the ESRI World-Wide User Conference

July 14, 2009

Colortrac will present its industry-leading, high definition wide format scanning technology to geospatial professionals and educators at the world's biggest Geographic Information Systems (GIS) event in the San Diego Convention Center, California, 14th - 16th July 2009, Booth 204.

A three time exhibitor at this popular international GIS conference, Colortrac is currently enrolling in the ESRI Complementary Technology Provider (CTP) program. Colortrac's aim for CTP membership is to raise awareness of its SmartLF large format scanner ranges to provide solutions in the important worldwide GIS market. GIS is used by many branches of government and energy industries and is less affected by economic conditions than AEC and other industrial wide format markets where Colortrac traditionally sells its products.

Malcolm Lane, President of Colortrac Inc, will support staff from GEI WideFormat, Colortrac's US distributor, as they demonstrate the benefits of the SmartLF large format scanning solutions in the GIS workplace.

Geo-spatial professionals can improve their workflow by the quick and easy capture of very sharp, highly accurate scanned color images of maps and town plans, etc. Colortrac's attractively priced SmartLF large format scanners and software solutions offer productivity benefits to the global GIS community. As an ESRI CTP, Colortrac's aim is to enhance the ESRI users' GIS productivity through a choice of "best fit" imaging technologies, simplified and reliable operation, fast scan speeds, and intuitive scanning and printing software solutions to achieve the best high quality color images at a lower cost than was previously possible.

Malcolm, says "Our Booth 204 will give ESRI visitors a chance to see Colortrac's industry-leading technology in live demonstrations where we will feature two new large format scanners. The SmartLF Ci 40 is the most affordable, most accurate 40" wide format scanner on the market today, while the new SmartLF Gx+ series of 28", 42" and 56" scanners provide superior color graphics and 1200dpi high definition optical resolution to capture extra fine detail in maps and plans. Both SmartLF solutions provide GIS users with a range of flexible and affordable scanning solutions that give the fastest scans speeds and the sharpest, brightest images.

"ESRI visitors are warmly invited to see Colortrac's SmartLF vision of the future for large format scanning at our booth 204", said Lane.

With advanced features, like cost-saving, long-life LED illumination that genuinely requires no warm-up and no waiting, the widest image width, (the SmartLF Gx+ 56), and high optical resolution, the high speed, high productivity SmartLF large format scanner range offers ESRI users the output capacity and quality needed in a modern GIS scanner. Any comparison of technical specifications will quickly show the superiority of the Colortrac SmartLF range. At ESRI visitors can see:

the highest optical resolution
reliable, long-life LED illumination
true instant-on operation - no warm-up, no waiting
cost-saving via genuine ENERGY STAR compliance
fast Gigabit Ethernet connectivity
the widest image width at 56"
the fastest scan speeds
affordable prices
