Paradigm Imaging Group Expands its WideTek Portfolio with Image Access

Paradigm Imaging Group, a leading distributor of large format scanning and printing solutions is adding to its flatbed scanner portfolio with the WideTEK 
12 flatbed scanner from Image Access and will offer it to its network of resellers throughout North America. 

A Smaller Model With All The Features and the Same High Speed as its Big Brother
Image Access' WideTEK 12 flatbed scanner has all the features and high scanning speed of the WideTEK 25 in a smaller A3+ model at a highly 
competitive price. The WideTEK 12 scans the full bed (19% more than A3, 12.5 x 18.5”) at 300dpi color in less than 3 seconds, twice as fast as the 
closest competition. The revolutionary 3D scanning mode opens new opportunities in printing and industrial inspection markets. 3D scanning captures 
the texture of surfaces so perfectly that the scan on a screen looks like the real thing. 

The Scan2Net platform is the technological foundation of all WideTEK scanners from Image Access. It replaces the proprietary scanner drivers and 
software that traditional scanners require with the fastest common, nonproprietary inter-device connection available: TCP/IP, over Ethernet. With 
network interface speeds much higher than USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 scanners, Scan2Net devices are able to reach unrivaled performance at extremely 
low connectivity cost. Scan2Net scanners feature a 64bit Linux based operating system, dedicated to scanner specific imaging and mechanical 
control tasks, maximizing scanning speeds and performance.

Said Randy Geesman, president of Paradigm Imaging Group, “The WideTEK Flatbed scanner series is a perfect addition to our product line which includes 
over 40 scanner models, enabling us to provide a quality solution to another segment of the scanning market. With its versatile software options, especially 
the Scan2Pad which allows operation from a mobile device, the WideTEK Flatbed scanners are an innovative product which we will enhance with 
outstanding customer support.

Paradigm Imaging Group Announces the New Colortrac SG Series Scanners

Paradigm Imaging Group, the North American distributor for Colortrac, Inc., announces the launch of a brand new product solution from Colortrac: 

•	SmartLF SG series – Colortrac’s FASTEST most PRODUCTIVE CCD scanner

Sharp and accurate – with superb color
The new SmartLF SG Series scanners, available in 36 and 44, are perfect for capturing sharply defined detail on technical drawings and maps as 
well as the vibrant, accurate colors needed by graphics professionals.

SmartLF SG Series large format scanners have all the advantages of CCD technology’s superior color imaging – the ability to scan a wide gamut (range of 
colors) 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.

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 SG is able to maximize the benefits of CCD while saving time and energy. ClearView white LED illumination used in 
SmartLF SG 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 SG scanners on and scan!

High productivity
All models scan monochrome at 13 inches per second (200 dpi). If you need high volume color scanning, choose the express color e model which scans 
color at 8 inches per second (200 dpi). In addition, with other wide format scanners operators often need to perform multiple pre-scans of selected image 
areas to get scan settings right. With the SmartLF SG large format scanner and SmartWorks Pro software scanning only needs to happen once.  “Scan-
it-once” technology gives you a huge workflow advantage. You can perform quality assurance and adjustments in-line, “right-first-time”, instead of 
needing to re-scan quality control failures off-line after batch scanning is completed.

Upgradable
There are (3) high definition scanner models in each size (36in or 44in) with performance levels and features optimized for different applications and 
scanning needs. If requirements change, the M (monochrome) and C (color) models can be easily remotely upgraded to a higher level. The E 
(enhanced) upgrade offers the highest color scan speed. In addition, scanning widths can be upgraded as well, from 36” to a 44” scan width!

Paradigm Imaging Group Introduces SID IJ3000 Eco Solvent Inks

Paradigm Imaging Group, the North American distributor for  SID Signs International, introduces new eco solvent inks.

The SID IJ3000 eco solvent inks were developed specifically for the SID Mercury GS and Titan GS printers that feature the Seiko GS-508 print 
head technology.  By utilizing the IJ-3000 inks, SID customers with the Mercury and Titan GS printers will be able to achieve the best print quality in 
resolutions up to 1440 dpi.  In addition, the IJ-3000 inks are compatible with print heads from other manufacturers with 12 pl or similar high resolution

Paradigm Imaging Group Features The Enhanced Colortrac Gx+T56 Scanner Series

Paradigm Imaging Group, the North American distributor for Colortrac, Inc., features the enhanced SmartLF Gx+T56 Scanner Series in their wide format 
scanner line.

The SmartLF Gx+T56 extra-wide format scanners have now been enhanced, combining multiple features into one model.   For instance, the versatile 
feed capability of the SmartLF Gx+T56 series allows for scanning of media up to .8 inches (20mm) thick, making these scanners a perfect fit for fine 
art scanning, in addition to the scanning of maps, drawings and technical documents. 
 
The Gx+T56 series features the widest imaging width of any sheet fed wide format scanner on the market.  These scanners provide ultimate 
flexibility to customers with very large, oversized, thick or thin documents or media.  SmartLF Gx+ T56 extra large scanners have all the advantages of 
CCD technology’s superior color imaging – the ability to scan a wide color gamut and a high dynamic range – combined with 600 dpi optical resolution, 
the highest optical  resolution available in any extra wide CCD scanner. This makes them perfect for capturing vibrant, accurate colors for graphics 
professionals as well as sharply defined line detail on technical documents and maps.

The white LED illumination of the SmartLF Gx+T56 produces high quality color, just like fluorescent illumination, however, because LEDs operate with a 
stable light spectrum from switch on through hours of use, there is no warm up time, a distinct advantage over scanners with fluorescent tubes.  LEDs 
do not require frequent replacement and calibration like fluorescent tubes, and also contain no mercury, making them environmentally friendly.

“The new, streamlined SmartLF Gx+T56 series scanners are more versatile, allowing for compatibility with a broader range of applications.  With a Gx+T56, 
you can scan everything from fine art, to photographs, to maps and technical documents, even items mounted on foam board,” says Randy Geesman, 
president of Paradigm Imaging Group. “The SmartLF Gx+T56 scanners, with their enhanced capabilities, perfectly compliment our extensive line of large 
format solutions.”
