They surpass any model in their price range in terms of image quality and performance," says Shuky Garibi, general manager, Creo Scanning Solutions. The iQsmart scanners produce razor-sharp scans from any size original, featuring a true optical resolution of up to dpi from edge to edge.
Creo's exclusive XY Stitch scanning technology assures consistent quality through sharper imaging. The compact size of the scanners allows for an inverted CCD that is uniquely positioned to minimize dust and improve image quality. Originals can be transparent positive and negativereflective, mounted slides, line art, printed material, and halftone-screened films. In spite of their compact size, iQsmart scanners are built for maximum productivity and a demanding workload.
The iQsmart scans up to 96 35mm slides at one time and generates up to 40 scans per hour. While the scanner captures and processes one scan, the operator has full access to the scanning software to preview and set up the next image.
The iQsmart scanners use FireWire connectivity to send scanned image data at the highest speed to the host computer. Its intuitive control, automation and intelligent settings put imaging power in the hands of novices and experienced professionals alike. The unique SOOM workflow Scan Once, Output Many and true bit color both available on the iQsmart3 model maximize scanned image quality from the first day of operation, even by a novice user.
The SOOM workflow also increases productivity and efficiency. Images are scanned once and saved as a bit digital transparency DT file that can be re-purposed for as many different uses as required -without losing quality or require re-scanning. Using advanced algorithms from the Creo Renaissance copydot scanners, the oXYgen DOT Solution brings top copydot scanning performance copydot and digital descreeningunmatched functionality and extended workflow flexibility to color scanners.
It enables fully automatic registration, copydot retouching and a SOOM workflow for re-purposing halftone film for multiple output devices. Compared with the iQsmart2, the iQsmart3 provides higher optical resolution, increased productivity, and enhanced workflow. In the future, the iQsmart2 will also connect to Windows r workstations. The iQsmart platform makes Creo the value leader in production scanners.The iQsmart 3 is supplied with the oXYgen Scan application, the premium scanning and image editing software from Kodak developed by Creo.
Intuitive controls, automation and intelligent default settings place a huge amount of imaging power at the disposal of novices and experienced professionals alike. Or, you can make up your own preferred profiles and apply them when you want. A full set of professional image-editing tools are also included. If you are considering an iQsmart scanner you might also want to take a look at the iQsmart Oil Mounting Station and other iQsmart Options.

This facility delivers consistent sharpness and resolution across the entire scanning bed. This uniformity and precision means that any size original can be scanned at the highest resolution available when placed anywhere on the scanning bed.
The DT file is the perfect solution for archiving applications as the file can be rapidly recalled and re-purposed for print, screen or web. The scanner base glass has a simple removal system so that it can be taken out and replaced by the off-line OMS frame. Use of multiple OMS frames greatly improves productivity in demanding environments.Remember Me?

Scanner comparison: Creo high end flatbeds added Two more scanners have been added to the comparison page.
These scans have impressive resolution, right up there with the very best of the drum scanners. They are all the more remarkable given that they come with the convenience of flatbed operation. I am particularly interested in the iQsmart3 scan, since it is also representative of an iQsmart2 scan. The cheaper iQsmart2 shares the iQsmart3's optics and scanning performance, but is still just tantalisingly out of the price range of most large format photographers including me.
Creo has a major presence in the prepress sector, but has not captured the mindshare of mainstream film-based photographers. Imacon, on the other hand, has been very successful in this sector, but for 4x5 scans, the Imacons are inferior because they lose scanning resolution with the 'zoom' required to project the greater film width onto the scan sensor, a problem Creo solves using XY stitching.
I can't help feeling that if Creo Kodak was to price the iQsmart2 competitively, they could reverse this situation. Leigh Perry www. Re: Scanner comparison: Creo high end flatbeds added You need to test the Imacon The performance is far better than the It has a different light source and a better cooler on the CCD. Re: Scanner comparison: Creo high end flatbeds added Steve, there is an Imacon on the itinerary, when the film makes it back here to Australia.
The is still limited to ppi for 4x5 though, a slight improvement over the 's ppi. Re: Scanner comparison: Creo high end flatbeds added LaserSoft Imaging recently released up to date versions of SilverFast for some Heidelberg scanners.
Might be something to consider, or perhaps you can contact them about this for your tests. However, it really does depend upon what size prints you want to produce. Getting such a scanner might be a better idea if one wants to offer a scanning service, though as a hobby I think is something tough to consider. Gordon Moat. Re: Scanner comparison: Creo high end flatbeds added Leigh, I use the iqsmart3, but not with an oil-mount. Is there significant degradation of scan quality when dry-scanned?
Creo's iQsmart1 Scanner at an Affordable Price
Re: Scanner comparison: Creo high end flatbeds added Leigh, thanks for the post and your ongoing efforts. The Creo scans do seem pretty crisp, but is it my imagination that they are also very noisy? One can see the difference between dry scans and wet mounts, and it is worth the extra cost of going wet! The station comes with an extra platten, which improve efficiency and provides redundancy incase the other platten is damaged.
They say that the oil mount on the Creo reduces grain. I don't think this is the case. I believe that the scanner is actually resolving the texture of the coating on the platten itself. If one looks at the Creo's platten, it isn't totally transparent like optical glass. While sharp, a dry scan has a grainy appearance, that doesn't look like film grain. By using oil the grain disappears, and the scans look great!Delivering world-class scanners to over 90 countries, Contex solutions are recognized by a wide range of industries for reliability, high performance and superb image quality.

Refurbished Flatbed Scanners
For this reason, we are going to purchase Geomagic Studio to procee our scan data in the future. What we do is process the point cloud data in the 3D Scanner software and clean it up at that stage. We then take the clean data and export it as a point cloud. You can then create a mesh surface from the point cloud data. What you do with it from here depends on your goals.
If you are simply wanting to overlay it to a 3D model to check accuracy, you will need some kind of verfication software. If you want to reverse engineer the scanned data into a working parametric model, you will need to do a lot more work. In order to reverse engineer this data into a working model, you will need to use it as a 3D template to build your features from. This is not as hard as it sounds, but it does take much longer than just analysing the data for accuracy. Geomagic Studio is able to take some of the scan data and create geometry that is recognized by CAD software, but since we don't have the software yet, we have not tried it.
I would imagine that Geomagic Studio will have a challenge in creating featuers of organic surfaces which our products use heavily. We have been using 3D Scanners for about 9 years now, so let me know if you have any other questions.For sale is Kodak iQsmart3 - one of the best scanners ever made.
