WideTEK® 36ART enables contact free scanning of works of fine art like oil and acrylic paintings, watercolors, charcoal and pastel drawings, mixed media collages and antique works of art; at 600dpi in formats up to 914 x 1524mm / 36 x 60 inches. Optionally, a scan table extension of 700 mm (27.6 inches) can be purchased which allows originals up to a length of 2224 mm (87.6 inches) to be scanned.
The new WideTEK® 36ART-600 was designed for archiving and reproduction of works of art. Museums can digitize their own collection for sale as a print or for publication on the internet or in catalogs. Reprography specialists can offer fine art digitization as a service, which has already proven to be a lucrative market.
Original artwork is moved under the CCD camera elements completely contact free, protecting the art from any damage and making it possible to scan a painting that is still wet, as long as it is framed or the sides are dry enough to place the artwork on the scanning bed.
This scanner exceeds all criteria set forth in the FADGI *** guidelines and ISO 19264-1 level B.
In cooperation with large format printers from HP, Canon and EPSON, the WideTEK® 36ART-600 fine art scanner brings the basis for professional art reproduction. Native printer drivers installed on the scanner make color accuracy on the resulting image even higher.
