Contex’s contact-free art scanner Apeiron/42 uses unparalleled technology to accurately digitize media. With the market’s most realistic image quality, full light control and a unique ability to emphasize details, the scanner is ideal for fine art, fragile artifacts and more.
This is especially suited for museums, copy shops, material manufacturers, and others, who now have a powerful new way to boost the quality of detailed and delicate originals with unprecedented accuracy.
The clearance height of 10 inches (254 mm) and an optimal focus plane of up to 5.1 inches (130 mm) enables scanning of thicker media, such as framed artwork or wood works or samples of building materials.
Six cameras with Fujifilm lenses and quad-linear Toshiba color CCDs capture all details in up to 1200 dpi optical resolution.
The lamps in HD Apeiron/42 recreate the natural daylight spectrum using cutting-edge LEDs with TRI-RTM technology. This, plus the clever design of LED strips mounted in elliptical reflectors, results in correct and uniform colors – and no distance fading.
Creating expressive shadows and highlights to add lifelike 3D surface sensations is also easy. HD Apeiron/42 offers four different lamp positions. The museum-correct light with no UV/IR radiation conserves the art.
