Contex Introduces IQ Wide Format Scanner Series

September 28, 2012

Alleroed, Denmark -- Contex A/S, a developer of wide format scanning and imaging solutions, announced several new wide format scanning solutions: the all-new IQ scanner series, MFP2GO and MFP Repro. The IQ scanner series is advanced in CIS technology and boasts a number of features that produce image quality for 24- and 44-inch wide technical documents, maps and drawings. Enhancing the users' scanning workflow, Contex's new MFP2GO lets customers turn their HP or Canon wide format printer into a copier, without the need for a PC. Additionally, Contex updated MFP Repro, a full-featured, copy and scan solution for in-house production or Repro use.

 Just under 2-feet-wide, sleek and lightweight, the IQ scanner is built for high-volume daily use. Its dual diffusion provides the most natural light in any CIS scanner. The IQ scanner is equipped with valuable mapping features such as Adobe RGB, which enables colors to stand out. Image quality is also obtained with Contex's patented color-fringe removal (CFR) and 1200 dpi optical resolution. Gigabit network is standard in all IQ models, supporting transfer speeds up to 80 MB/second. These network-enabled scanners provide one-touch buttons that allow users to scan directly to a desired location. Contex's All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) and magnetic document guides provide support for documents of unlimited lengths.

The new MFP2GO is a user-friendly scanning and single printer copy system. Ideal for an office environment, MFP2GO is an easy, plug-and-play solution for users to scan, share and copy changes to plans and drawings. The MFP2GO bundle includes a Contex HD, IQ or SD scanner, high-stand and a 10-inch touchscreen MFP2GO controller. The controller allows users to scan and share images via email, copy, LAN, FTP and USB. The USB port can connect to an iPad or any device that will import images as it would from a digital camera.

Contex's MFP Repro is a full-featured, copy and scan solution that can turn any large-format printer into a full-featured copy solution. Ideal for in-house production or repro use, the newly enhanced MFP Repro now features multi-page document support, full scanning options including file naming templates, as well as unlimited printer support. The Contex MFP Repro bundle includes a scanner, intuitive Nextimage Repro software  and a high stand.
