Sharp and accurate - with superb color

The SmartLF SGi series 36" and 44" scanners are perfect for capturing sharply defined detail on technical drawings and maps as well as the vibrant, accurate colors needed by graphics professionals.

SmartLF SGi series large format scanners have all the advantages of CCD technology's superior color imaging - the ability to scan a wide gamut (range of colours) and a high dynamic range (ability to see detail in dark and light areas) - combined with 1200 dpi optical resolution, the highest optical resolution available in any CCD wide format scanner in the market today. This makes them perfect for capturing vibrant, accurate colors for graphics professionals as well as sharply defined line detail on technical documents and maps.

SmartLF SGi scanners use the advanced SureDrive paper transport system to maintain accurate document positioning as the document passes through the scanner. Combining this with the ClearView bright white bi-directional LED illumination system ensures that with SG even folded documents scan accurately and as shadow-free as possible.

Images are scanned using 48-bits (color) or 16-bits (monochrome), with the best 24 and 8-bits selected as image data respectively.

All the benefits of CCD - without the downsides

Traditional CCD scanners have superior color imaging but are disadvantaged by their fluorescent lighting systems. By using white LEDs instead of fluorescent tubes, the SmartLF SGi is able to maximize the benefits of CCD while saving time and energy.

NEW SmartWorks Imaging

Optimized all the way through, SmartWorks Imaging is clearer and easier to navigate than SmartWorks Pro. With a faster performance, revised preset control, better printer drivers and a new multi-page thumbnail pop-out feature, SmartWorks Imaging is the perfect productivity partner for SmartLF SCi and SmartLF SGi large format scanners.

LINK Remote Control

Work smarter with LINK. This portable tablet app works with any computer already connected to the scanner and running SmartWorks Imaging to bring effortless control of the scanner to your fingertips. Use LINK to reduce body movement and to improve operator comfort while scanning.

Simplified thick media system

Thick media operation is now full-time on all SGi series scanners. To raise the lid and increase the thickness capability of the scanner raise the lever on the left-hand side of the scanner lid to its maximum position then load the document manually. Lower the lever to grip the media and begin scanning. All media must be loaded panel-side justified with SGi.

No warm up, no waiting

While a fluorescently lit scanner can be used within five minutes of switching on, it should really be left to warm up for about 30 minutes in order for the tubes to reach their optimum light intensity and for the tube temperature to reach equilibrium. If this is not done color match and possible stitch inaccuracies caused by a still cold chassis may result.

ClearView white LED illumination used in SmartLF SGi produces high quality scans just like fluorescent illumination but unlike fluorescent tubes the color temperature from LEDs remains stable from first power-up to final power-down. No more waiting for warm-up to complete, simply turn SGi scanners on and scan!

2GB scan data memory

SmartLF SGi is the first scanner from Colortrac to have 2GB of onboard scan data memory. This ensures smooth progress of the document through the scanner even if the computer experiences sudden sluggishness or the Ethernet network is unexpectedly busy.

Significant power saving

SmartLF SGi uses nearly 30% less power when scanning and 94% less power when idle. The scanner has a programmable timer that switches the unit into power saving (ENERGY STAR) mode when it is not operated for the defined period.

In addition the 'instant-on' LED lighting inside every SG means that you can leave the scanner switched off most of the time and only turn it on when you need to use it.
