Best stories starts with best scans
Digitized originals do not age with the time. They can be stored in a time capsule. From digital data we can make reproductions, archive or use it for printing catalogues, e-publishing, … As we respect every original and our work, we use the world’s best digital scanner Cruse. We can guarantee that this is the only scanner that insures us, that reproduction is most similar to the original.
Cruse scanner – revolution in scanning
- 300 millions dots optical resolution (ordinary photo cameras 10-30 millions dots),
- maximum original size 150 x 110 cm at 300 ppi, larger formats possible by combining several scans,
- we can capture jaw dropping feeling of 3D texture,
- we can eliminate shadows when original has wrinkles or is curled,
- original can be behind the glass and framed,
- even sharpness and lightness all over the scan,
- different options for fasten original to the scanning table – vacuum, magnetic stripes, glass,
- harmless and cold lighting,
- scanning surface is never in touch with the scanner – great for delicate originals,
- advanced color management (ICC) – digital file has same color tones as original,
- maximum thickness of the original 30 cm, depth of field 12 cm,
- maximum weight of the original 70 kg.
LR scanning mode
In LR mode original is lit from left and right side. In that way we eliminate shadows that would otherwise result in the digitization of embossed or uneven (wrinkled) surfaces. Due to maximum exposure scanning in this mode is fastest and most affordable.
LR scanning mode is recommended:
- for originals where there is no relief,
- for originals where we do not want to capture a sense of relief; the best for scanning maps or wrinkled materials.
LTx scanning mode
In LTx mode, original is lit only from left side. When original is embossed and uneven, we get shadows from one side. There is a feeling of texture, but not as intense as in LA mode.
LA scanning mode
In LA scanning mode, we exposure original from left side with special emitter that throws light under 45° angle. We get the most realistic feeling of texture and brush strokes. Feeling is so real, that our customers find the difference only when they touch the reproduction.
LA scanning mode is recommended:
- for paintings where we would like to expose 3D feeling of brush strokes, …,
- where we would like to print a feeling of the material on a smooth paper or surface (e.g. texture of wood on laminate, ceramic tiles, …).
