Enables contact free scanning of works of art like oil and acrylic paintings, watercolors, charcoal and pastel drawings, mixed media collages and antique works of art; at 600dpi in formats up to 914 x 1524mm / 36 x 60 inches. Using the latest camera technology this scanner exceeds all criteria set forth in the FADGI *** guidelines and ISO 19264-1 level B. Perfecting the Art of Art Scanning

WideTEK® 36ART fine art scanner

The WideTEK® 36ART-600 enables contact free scanning of works of art like oil and acrylic paintings, watercolors, charcoal and pastel drawings, mixed media collages and antique works of art, with or without frames, gently and in high resolution.

With its patent pending laser focusing, the WideTEK 36ART captures all surface textures, from the finest stroke of the brush to gouache painting techniques. Originals are scanned with up to 600 x 600 dpi optical resolution and ICC profiles can be easily used with the scanner to guarantee truly correct colors in the scanned image.

Contact free scanning allows a maximum height of the scanned surface of up to 100 mm and a complete height of the original of up to 200 mm. A framed work of art can be scanned directly without taking it out of the frame first.

The originals are moved under the CCD camera elements completely contact free, protecting works of art from any damage and making it possible to scan a painting that is still wet, as long as it is framed or the sides are dry enough to place the artwork on the scanning bed. Cool UV and IR-free LED illumination also protects valuable art from color distortion or damage due to excessive
exposure to light.

In cooperation with large format printers from HP, Canon and EPSON, the WideTEK® 36ART-600 fine art scanner brings the basis for professional art reproduction. Native printer drivers installed on the scanner make color accuracy on the resulting image even higher.

The WideTEK® 36ART-600 was designed for archiving and reproduction of works of art. Museums can digitize their own collection for sale as a print or for publication on the internet or in catalogs. Reprography specialists can offer fine art digitization as a service, which has already proven to be a lucrative market.
