The IDEAL/Contex HAWK-EYE G36" Basic Color Scanner provides affordable, wide format color scanning. This scanner creates images in photorealistic colors, high quality grayscale and crisp, clear black and white. The IDEAL/Contex HAWK-EYE G36 Basic is used in the GIS, Reprographics, CAD, and Graphic Arts industries for color classification for vectorization, storage, retrieval, conversion to CAD, populating an online planroom, and scan-to-print. It can efficiently rasterize drawings up to 36” wide (E-Size) by any length on media up to 0.47” thick. The IDEAL/Contex HAWK-EYE G36 Basic can be used stand-alone or as an integrated component of a customized solution. This scanner is Energy Star and RoHS Compliant.

Color Accuracy
The IDEAL/Contex HAWK-EYE G36 Basic Color Scanner creates images in photo realistic colors, high quality grayscale, and crisp, clear black and white. Color is captured at 48 bits for maximum color precision, passing the best 24 bits of color data to the computer. The IDEAL/Contex HAWK-EYE G36 Basic also supports 256 gray shades. The gray shades are captured at 16 bits for maximum precision, passing the best 8 bits of gray shade data to the computer. The IDEAL/Contex HAWK-EYE G36 Basic Scanner includes a thirty-day timed out version of JETimage NET. This copier interface takes advantage of the scanners Dual 2-D Adaptive enhancement features with Area Diffusion Logic and Error Diffusion Half-toning which allows documents containing mixed photographic and line-art (including text) areas to be captured with greater detail. JETimage NET also has advanced scan to print features that support advanced layout options such as paneling, tiling, and nesting of printed output as well as tracking capability of paper and copying usage. This new scanner incorporates the 3C Auto-Maintenance system that keeps the cameras perfectly aligned, adjusted, and calibrated for optimal image quality. The 3C Auto-Maintenance system aligns and stitches the cameras to a fraction of a pixel giving the highest wide format image precision available. The IDEAL/Contex HAWK-EYE G36 Basic can easily be upgraded to an IDEAL/Contex HAWK-EYE G36 Plus color scanner with a Smart Card Upgrade Kit enabling users to gain higher scanning resolution and increased scanning speed without incurring the cost of a new scanning device.

Accuracy Lens Enhancement Technology
The IDEAL/Contex HAWK-EYE G36 Basic Color Scanner uses Accuracy Lens Enhancement Technology (ALE) that electronically maintains 0.1% +/- 1 pixel precision across any two points of the scan line thus exceeding even the most rigid requirements. With this scanner there is a very high grade of precision stability in the scanned image.

High Performance Scanning
The IDEAL/Contex HAWK-EYE G36 Basic has variable resolution settings from 50 to 1200 dpi selectable in one dpi increments to match user requirements. This scanner can scan a typical E-Size monochrome original at 10” per second at 400 dpi turbo and a color original at 1.5" per second at 400 dpi turbo. The IDEAL/Contex HAWK-EYE G36 Basic requires WIDEimage NET, the operating software for color scanning. The IDEAL/Contex HAWK-EYE G36 Basic can extract color and patterns of color into separate layers which can then be converted to DXF and DGN vector files with WiseImage.

Scan, Index, and Edit
ScanOS provides single-field indexing for every document scanned, and automatically generates the filename, time & date, and the computer operator’s name to the database record. ScanOS stores drawings and index data in an ODBC compliant archive in many formats including PDF, TIFF, JPEG, and BMP. Edit drawings in raster with the same ease as editing a CAD file using WiseImage, an optional intelligent raster editing software package from IDEAL. WiseImage is a powerful drawing editor that performs raster to vector conversion and OCR.

Scan, Share, and Print
Provide instant network access of scanned drawings with IDEAL’s ArchiveCenter for Workgroups. Archive large format drawings on a company intranet or a secure, password protected internet with IDEAL’s ArchiveCenter for the Enterprise. Search, retrieve, view, and print large format drawings using only a standard web browser. ArchiveCenter can be upgraded to IDEAL's Online PlanRoom for bid management, project management, and order drawings.

Looking to turn your inkjet into a digital copier? Scan large format monochrome originals with heavy detail and print them out to any inkjet plotter without losing any details. The IDEAL/Contex HAWK-EYE G36 Basic Scanner is the perfect front-end to any Windows-based inkjet plotter. Use the optional Copy Kit to mount your PC and touch screen directly on the scanner for a convenient scan to print system.
