The Colortrac SmartLF Gx offers affordable high definition power and performance based on CCD (charge coupled device) technology optimized for high quality color imaging. The wide color gamut and high dynamic range based on industry-leading 1200 x 600dpi high optical resolution delivers the large format scanning industry’s best color capture across a 42″ imaging width. The ability to capture both superb color with full shadow detail suits artwork, photographs and sketches. Its power to resolve fine details suits technical drawings and maps. This dual capability provides a full solution for the different requirements of scanning color graphics and technical documents. With two solutions in one wide format scanner, it is unsurprising that the SmartLF Gx 42 is now the first choice of Wide Format Imaging’s professional readers’ when asked to recommend the best, most cost-effective large format scanner that has benefited their business.
