BÖWE BELL + HOWELL Now Shipping Larger Wide-Format Scanner Models
BÖWE BELL + HOWELL is now shipping 42- and 48-inch models of its wide-format scanner. Designed to convert documents up to 42 and 48 inches wide (depending on the scanner model) into digital images with speed and accuracy, the new Infinity WF 42 and Infinity WF 48 scan in bitonal, grayscale and color. Both models can reach rated speeds up to 6.1 inches per second (ips) in color at 300 dpi, and up to 6.9 ips in bitonal at 400 dpi.
Infinity WF scanners are reliable solutions for geographic information systems (GIS), government agencies, and architectural, engineering and construction firms looking to reproduce large-scale documents such as maps, land surveys and architectural drawings.
An improved touch screen allows users to zoom in on and navigate scanned images. Bundled scanning software allows users to quickly and easily change scanner settings, and select both the scan location and file output type.
All Infinity WF models come with features that make scanning easier and more efficient. For example, the scanner's white LED lights do not require a warm- up period, and automatic camera calibration ensures the scanners are ready to scan as soon as they are turned on. A smooth transport system and Auto Width Detection technology, which allows users to pass documents through the middle of the scanner table, prevent fraying or damage to the document. Image Rotation allows users to feed a large document lengthwise and then rotate the scanned image to the proper orientation.
The network capability of Infinity WF ensures accessibility. Users do not have to download drivers or software and can send files directly from the scanner to an FTP server, printer, folder, e-mail, or USB (an option available for purchase).
Infinity WF ships with a scanner stand, assembly tools, software for image capture and enhancement, network and crossover cables, a calibration kit, a cleaning cloth and an installation guide. As a network scanner, Infinity does not require a dedicated PC. The crossover cable can, however, easily connect the scanner to a dedicated PC, should a user prefer to do so.
