The system consists of a camera system with digital back from PhaseOne, interchangeable lenses and the Zeutschel ErgoLED lighting system with flexible directed lighting – all embedded in a solid, modular basic stand. A variety of copyboard systems can be used to process a wide range of original material – from stamps and coins to films and glass negatives to books and large-format documents. The Zeutschel ScanStudio is available from summer 2017.

“The new digitization system from Zeutschel not only redefines flexibility and future-proof design, it meets the highest demands of image quality, has a productive and reliable operation, and is also easy-to-use,” explains Jörg Vogler.

New standards of flexibility
Designed as a completely modular system, Zeutschel ScanStudio offers the user unprecedented levels of flexibility.

Showcasing interchangeable lenses, replaceable and upgradeable digital backs up to 100 megapixel resolution, the system concept also features a variety of copyboard systems. It includes transparency units, brackets for the most common film formats, but cradles as well as copyboard tables for documents up to A1 size.

Superb image quality
The Zeutschel ScanStudio offers an image quality exceeding the provisions of the established digitization guidelines of FADGI (Federal Agencies Digitization Guidelines Initiative), Metamorfoze and the ISO 19264-1 standard.

This system solution uses the latest state-of-the-art generation of digital backs from PhaseOne. The large-sized sensor is perfectly matched with the offered lenses, combined with the high bit depth and unparalleled high dynamic range, you have sharp, noise-free and high contrast images that faithfully reproduce even the finest details.

Each perfect picture requires the right lighting. Instead of a flash, the Zeutschel ScanStudio uses the special Zeutschel ErgoLED lighting system featuring two LED lamps that can be flexibly adjusted and controlled. The original material is illuminated ‘crosswise’ to prevent shadows from appearing in the book fold or casting shadows on mint coins, for example.

Productive, ergonomic and reliable results
The Zeutschel ScanStudio is controlled using the tried and tested OmniScan software. An established tool for implementing efficient digitization workflows in archives and libraries.

Create predefined workflows in the software containing all the major settings for the respective task –such as shutter, color management and lighting angle. This means that recurring digitization tasks can easily and reliably be performed even by non-professionals – with the same high quality. The monitor is connected to the system making live viewing possible, which means that the original documents can be positioned perfectly on the copyboard systems. It also allows immediate control of the results.

The ErgoLED lighting system offers glare-free, directed lighting and ergonomic operation. Adjustments are made using dimmed light. The illumination level is only briefly increased for the exposure of the original document and then immediately reduced to the brightness setting.
