Document Scanning Technology: Graphtec CS1100 Large Format Scanner

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Continuing our discussion of the latest in document scanning technology, today we will focus specifically on the CS 1100 large format scanner. The CS1100 allows you to select from 200 dpi to 800 dpi interpolated resolution to suit the complexity of your drawing and your scanning application. In addition to monochrome drawings, the CS1100 scanner also supports 256-level grayscale and 256-color data input for sharp, clear scanning of even the most detailed images.

The CS1100 large format scanner accurately scans drawings for GIS, mapping, CAD, and document archiving as well as civil engineering applications. Detailed road maps and contour maps including extra-long documents are scanned at an accuracy of ±0.1% ±5 pixels.

A new high-pressure hold down unit is now available with the CS1100 scanner for enhanced scanning accuracy and image quality when scanning old (deteriorated) documents with creases. Check out the CS1100 Series accessories/supplies section for more details!

Use Graphtec’s Scanning Master Copy Color software to reproduce high-quality drawings that are faithful to the original. This software also enables you to connect the CS1100 Series Scanner to your favorite printer or plotter to create a large format color copier.

The CS1100 large format scanner now ships with user-friendly automatic calibration software.

With conventional color scanners, 24-bit full color data is scanned in and used as-is, resulting in large files containing more data than necessary. The color depth reduction function included in the CS1100 Series helps to eliminate this problem by reducing the wide 24-bit color spectrum with its 16.7 million colors to the 256 colors of the more practical 8-bit color spectrum, making the data much more manageable and shortening the overall processing time. You can select Standard or Optimized when creating the initial settings. You can also change the colors after the data has been scanned in using Graphtec’s high-performance scanner driver (Scanning Master 21+) which comes standard with the CS1100 large format scanners and helps to facilitate scanner setup and control.
