It contains a scanner base unit consisting of a proprietary camera with a digital camera back from PhaseOne.
For universal use in digitization projects. ScanStudio is an overhead scanning system and photo studio in one and it can process a variety of originals — from stamps and 35 mm film, books and manuscripts all the way to maps, historical magazine volumes and aerial photographs. The image results meet the highest quality standards defined by Metamorfoze, FADGI and ISO 19264.
Compliant with guidelines up to A1 format
For example, Zeutschel’s ScanStudio A1 meets the strict specifications of familiar guidelines and standards for image quality. In the case of A2 originals, imaging results can be obtained in line with Metamorfoze Full and FADGI-4 Star.
The image quality in A1 format corresponds to FADGI-3 Star and Metamorfoze Light. With this high image quality, the imaging system also complies with the new ISO 19264 standard.
To achieve this, the camera and interchangeable lenses are optimally attuned with the digital camera back from PhaseOne. In addition, the ScanStudio A1 has LED lighting designed for the digitization of our cultural heritage which provides optimal illumination of the originals.
