MANUFACTURER INFORMATION

Contex is one of Denmark’s fastest growing IT companies and the world’s largest developer and producer of large format scanning and large format imaging solutions. Originally founded in 1923, the company designed and manufactured inventive, time-saving business machines, including printing machines, mechanical and electronic calculators, and electrostatic copiers, which were distributed and sold worldwide under the Rex-Rotary and Gestetner brand names. By the early 1980s, the foundation for Contex Scanning Technology began and Contex evolved into the leader of the global imaging industry in large format scanning, copying and image enhancement. The development of modular scanning technology began in 1986 and in 1988, Contex introduced its first monochrome large format scanner. Contex released a complete line of monochrome scanners in 1990 and launched its first large format colour scanners in 1996. Today, Contex offers 18″, 25″, 36″, 44″, and 54″ all -in-one, colour and monochrome scanners with CIS (colour image sensors) and CCD (charged-couple device) imaging technology. Over the years, Contex scanners have received numerous awards from leading trade publications and analyst firms including Cadalyst, Wide-Format Imaging, and BERTL (Business Equipment Research and Test Laboratories). Contex provides scanning solutions in over 90 countries and is recognised by a wide range of industries for reliability, value, high-performance and superb image quality.

Contex IQ Quattro 2490, 3600 and 4400 large format scanners are a fourth generation Contex CIS technology using a number of advanced Contex proprietary technologies to achieve superb image quality and reliability. Contex IQ technology includes, CleanScan CIS technology combined with CFR, SIGMA and xDTR to ensure the highest quality CIS scanners in the market. Contex CleanScan CIS technology is based on custom CIS modules with dual-sided LED light and Dual Diffusion, which suppress shadows and unwanted backgrounds. The patented Contex Colour Fringe Removal (CFR) technology is an advanced filtering technology, producing superior image quality with excellent lines. Signal Intensity Matching (SIGMA) is a Contex patented technology that minimises sensor differences live during a scan, to adjust for differences in sensor heating. xDTR improves 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 a larger document (and more documents) can be scanned at higher resolutions without waiting for data transfer to complete. With xDTR, the IQ Quattro can capture an A1 or D-size colour document in the same time or less than an A” or C-size document with a CIS scanner without xDTR. When batch scanning or scanning at 400 dpi or more, the difference is even greater.
