Pearl Scan Invests in a New Fleet of High Production Scanners
Pearl Scan has recently invested in its document imaging and high volume document scanning and digitisation department. All document and books scanners including the wide format scanners fleet have been upgraded to the latest Kodak i5000 series and Context latest wide format scanners. The decision came from the top management due to an increased customers demand for high resolution capture, increased OCR accuracy requirements, increased need for colour document scanning and quick turn around time.
Our new fleet of scanners can delivery high resolution scans at 300dpi at the same speed of traditional 200dpi without compromising the throughput. Due to no lost in productivity our customers will pay the same scanning charges unlike the previous scanners, where the speed and productivity was heavily compromised by increasing the image resolution to achieve better image quality.
Our latest wide format scanners can now scan up to 44 inches wide plans, maps and drawings, from the traditional 34/36 inches A0 size formats and any length of documents, typically as long as 30 feet.
The book scanners have also been upgraded to the true linear based scan technology as oppose to the traditional camera-shot based image capture technique. The demand was the digitisation of books for heritage, historical and antiquarian material, where more true image resolution and digitisation is the needed and key to the overall process. It was imperative to have a scanner which can deliver true digitisation attributes to meet our client’s technical specification. The image quality delivered by our latest book scanners is Pearl Scan’s commitment to delivery the best in bound books image quality without having to increase costs to our customers.
