With uncompromising image quality standards, the Contex HD5400 scanner is designed for high-volume productivity for businesses-critical imaging tasks. Whether you are a private business, government or print-for-pay, an HD5400 is the right solution for improved efficiency and productivity.

Wide and long ...

Artwork, maps and other colour- and detail-rich documents are reproduced to perfection, without any document length limit. You don't have to scan the material in several parts and then stitch the images together afterwards.

You have a consecutive processing of any number of scans, and software settings you can personalize to ensure the same scan, copy and color settings every time.

Proven technology

A combination of 48-bit colour, 4-channel CCD technology, full-size professional camera lenses and advanced image data processing algorithms creates a superior image quality. With image processing performed inside the scanner, your PC is free to run software applications more efficiently.

The Contex HD5400 wide format scanner is fast and steady with up to 12 inch/second scanning speeds. Truly a workhorse that can handle very large originals with speed and ease. The HD5400 gives you a great performance and a high return on your investment. Fujifilm lenses

Like photography, scanned image quality depends heavily on lens quality. Using lenses that are specifically designed for the scanning resolution will ensure against various problems, from uneven sharpness to chromatic errors and color fringing (black lines show up in color). This is why Contex uses custom Fujifilm lenses in all CCD based scanners.

Contex Natural Light

The light source is custom fluorescent with a high Color Rendering Index (CRI > 95) to produce the most accurate colours possible. The CCD itself is high resolution and capable of capturing 48-bit color, but Contex have the unique ability to process the entire 48-bit colour data - resulting in the most accurate colour images you can get from a scanner today.


Contex scanners with xDTR improve overall productivity by increasing the data transfer speed of the USB interface, so more image data can be sent to the PC, faster. This means larger documents (and more documents) can be scanned at higher resolutions without waiting for data transfer to complete. A scanner without xDTR may capture an A2 or C-size colour document in eight seconds, while a scanner with xDTR can capture an A1 or D-size colour document in the same time, or less. If scanning batches of documents or scanning at 400dpi or more, the difference is even greater.

Various media and thickness

Do you have thick, mounted or other sensitive or specialized documents? No problem. Automatic Thickness Adjustment Control (ATAC) technology lets you scan documents up to 0.6" (15 mm) thick and monitors pressure on the document surface.
