Paradigm Imaging Group Adds Backlight Option To WideTek 25 Flatbed Scanner


The WideTEK 25 now comes with an optional backlight unit for digitising film footage, X-rays, and other transparent material. The backlight option is integrated in the scanner lid and can be easily installed by the user, enabling both normal and transparent source material to be scanned.

The WideTEK 25 is a fast, high resolution, colour flatbed scanner for formats up to 63.5cm x 46.99cm (25 inches x 18.5 inches). The CCD system is housed in a hermetically sealed camera box, ensuring dust-free operation. Using a patented stitching process, the WideTEK 25 delivers a maximum resolution of 1200 dpi and can scan an A2 sized document in 3 seconds (at 300 dpi).

The backlight unit enhances the already impressive functionality of the WideTEK 25 scanner. It can scan both reflective originals as well as transparent material in the same resolution of up to 1200 dpi optical and using 3D surface scanning techniques if desired.

The new option enables operators to scan medium format and large format films and glass negatives of up to 635 x 470 mm (18.5 x 25 inches) in less than six seconds at 600 dpi. This enhancement makes it an even more powerful production scanner for nearly any industry.
