The IDEAL/Contex TOUCAN G25 Basic Color Scanner is a versatile scanner that creates images in photo-realistic color for Sign Shops, Pre-press, Copy Shop, POP and Display markets using large format color graphics. It is a wide format color scanner at an affordable price that is programmable for scanning, copying, and emailing directly from the scanner. The IDEAL/Contex TOUCAN G25 Basic Color Scanner can be used for scan to print, color classification for vectorization, storage, retrieval, conversion to CAD, populating an online planroom, and scan to print. It can efficiently rasterize drawings up to 25” wide (D-Size) by any length on media up to 0.6” thick. The IDEAL/Contex TOUCAN G25 Basic can be used stand-alone or as an integrated component of a customized solution. This scanner is Energy Star and RoHS Compliant.
Color AccuracyThe IDEAL/Contex TOUCAN G25 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 TOUCAN G25 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 TOUCAN G25 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 TOUCAN G25 Basic can easily be upgraded to an IDEAL/Contex TOUCAN G25 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 TOUCAN G25 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 TOUCAN G25 Basic Color Scanner has variable resolution settings from 50 to 1200 dpi selectable in one dpi increments to match user requirements. This scanner can scan a typical D-Size monochrome original at 4.0” per second at 400 dpi turbo and a color original at 0.5” per second at 400 dpi turbo. For scan-to-file applications, the IDEAL/Contex TOUCAN G25 Basic requires ScanOS, scanning and single field indexing software, or WIDEimage NET, operating software for scanning. The scanned raster images obtained from the IDEAL/Contex TOUCAN G25 Basic Scanner can be edited in raster or converted to DXF vector files with
WiseImageTOUCAN G25 Basic Scanner supports FireWire and USB2 Connectivity. With USB connectivity, a company can share the scanner between users and computers without installing extra hardware.
Scan, Index, and Edit
The IDEAL/Contex TOUCAN G25 Basic Scanner supports color and monochrome scanning applications. 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
