As the North American master distributor of the innovative line of Colortrac SmartLF products, GEI WideFormat will be responsible for the sales and marketing of this new Gx series of wide format scanners.

Featuring the latest in 1200dpi optical resolution CCD technology, the SmartLF Gx 42 is designed for fast, high quality scans, copies or file distribution of documents that contain fine image detail and require a wide color gamut with high dynamic range. It's perfect for large format graphic designs, photographs, artwork, satellite images, maps and posters. This 42" scanner can capture images off media from 6" up to 48' wide by any length and there's even a Gx T version for motorized thick media scanning of mounted originals up to 0.8" thickness.

"The quality, performance and tremendous value for the money are all here again with the Colortrac SmartLF Gx 42. This new CCD based scanner perfectly complements the SmartLF Cx line of CIS scanners, making Colortrac the only large format scanner manufacturer to offer both imaging technologies." said Roger Ilgen, National Sales Director, GEI WideFormat Solutions. "Our customers can now select a truly affordable scanner that's best for their particular application... knowing they're getting technology that could have cost them two or three times as much."

The Colortrac SmartLF Gx 42 comes in three versions: monochrome, color and express color and upgrades to any model can be done quickly and easily on-site by return e-mail. Professional service providers, reprographics bureaus, copy shops, graphic arts studios, design firms, and mapping, survey and GIS professionals in any size enterprise can buy the right scanner for their current project with the peace of mind that they can enhance their system when the need arises.
