Contex, an industry leader in wide-format scanning and imaging solutions, has launched the IQ Quattro 3600 Wide-Format Scanner – ideal for scanning technical documents up to 36 inches wide and unlimited length. This newest model completes the IQ Quattro series, which now includes 24”, 36” and 44” models. The 3600 joins the family of IQ Quattro Scanners designed to improve customers’ productivity by helping them to spend less time scanning. The IQ Quattro, the 4th generation CIS scanner from Contex, “is the fastest in colour than any other wide-format scanner,” said the company. It features up to 14 ips/sec. in colour with Sigma and Color Fringe Removal. It can scan A0/E size documents in 3.5 seconds with a one-second start time.

The IQ Quattro 3600 replaces the SD 36 scanner. “Customers benefit from full network capabilities and cloud connectivity – a market first,” said Contex. The IQ Quattro scanners are equipped with Contex CleanScan CIS modules and facilitate optimal image quality with dual-sided LED light. “This eliminates wrinkles and folds in originals and provides clear, crisp scans every time.” The scanner series uses the Nextimage professional suite of software products. It can also run rainforest365 – a free Contex app that allows users to operate the scanners securely with their own smart devices. The IQ Quattro also comes available as a ScanStation, featuring a 21.5” touchscreen. Contex products are sold worldwide in more than 90 countries.
