The IDEAL/Contex Puma HS 36" Plus Color Scanner is a cost-effective scanner with an embedded copying and scanning system in the hardware. There is an easy-to use iJET Panel to control the copying and scanning operations. The iJET Panel contains an elaborate menu system that enables setup and activation of full scan-to-print and scan-to-file options directly from the scanner. This scanner is designed for the CAD, GIS, Reprographics, Sign Shops, Copy Shop, POP and Display markets that handle large format color graphics. The IDEAL/Contex Puma HS 36" Plus Color Scanner can be used for color classification for vectorization, storage, retrieval, conversion to CAD, and scan-to-print. These scanners can efficiently rasterize drawings up to 36” wide (E-Size) by any length on media up to 0.6” thick. The Puma HS 36" Plus Color Scanner can be used stand-alone or as an integrated component of a customized solution.
The IDEAL/Contex Puma HS 36" Plus Color Scanner creates images in photo realistic color, high quality gray scale, 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 Puma HS 36" Plus Scanner is an accurate, two-dimensional sampling device; document motion is one axis and electronic scan of the Charge Couple Device (CCD) semiconductor cameras is the other. They are front-loading, and scan with unparalleled accuracy, +/- 0.1% in both the Puma HS 36" Plus Scanner has iJET technology, embedded copying and scanning system in the hardware. The iJET technology incorporates the scanner's 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. This new scanner incorporate 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.
Copying Made Easy
Connect the IDEAL/Contex Puma HS 36" Plus scanner with a large format printer and you get the perfect large format color and monochrome digital copier. From the iJET Panel you can set the quality, lightness, number of copies, reduce/enlarge the copy without the use of a PC or software. The iJET Panel also contains advanced settings for special jobs or for setting company defaults. With the scanner’s high precision of details and colors, users can enlarge their creations to full display sizes without losing any quality. The IDEAL/Contex Puma HS 36" Plus Color Scanner has variable resolution settings from 50 to 9600 dpi, selectable in one dpi increments to match user requirements.
Accuracy Lens Enhancement Technology
The IDEAL/Contex Puma HS 36" Plus 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 these scanner there is a very high grade of precision stability in the scanned image.
Connect to PC for Indexing and Editing
The IDEAL/Contex Puma HS 36" Plus Scanner support scolor and monochrome scanning applications. IDEAL’s 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.
Enterprise Wide Sharing
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. Both software applications require a PC to be connected to the IDEAL/Contex Puma HS 36" Plus Color Scanner. ArchiveCenter can be upgraded to IDEAL's Online PlanRoom for bid management, project management, and ordering drawings.
