The NEW V3D which stands for VISUAL 3D = 3D LIKE Scanning Feature from SMA Electronic Document GmbH of Germany

The NEW – SMA VERSASCAN Brochure

The NEW V3D which stands for VISUAL 3D = 3D LIKE Scanning Feature is now incorporated in the SMA SCAN MASTER & VersaScan product line which includes the SMA models SCAN MASTER 0 = A0+ – 1 = A1+ & 2 = A2+ & the SMA VersaScan flatbed scanner models 2550 = 25 inches wide by 50 inches long or DIN A1+, 3650 = 36 inches wide by 50 inches long or DIN A0+  & 36100 = 36 inches wide by 100 inches long or DIN Double A0+, plus A1+ & A2+ models with special production versions available.

NOTE: SMA recently manufactured a specialised customised scanner for originals up to:

  • 48 inches = 1,219mm wide x 80 inches = 2,032mm long &
  •  
  • 48 wide = 1,219mm x 100 inches = 2,540mm long.

 

The whole SMA Book & Flatbed Scanner Range now incorporates the this NEW – SMA V3D which stands for VISUAL 3D = 3D LIKE Scanning Featurescanning in 2.5D scanning mode to capture surface contours and produce 3D-like surface recognition images, which are very natural looking images of the highest quality.

This NEW – SMA V3D which stands for VISUAL 3D = 3D LIKE Scanning Featurecan be implemented for a wide variety of surface control and presentation applications.

The NEW – SMA V3D which stands for VISUAL 3D = 3D LIKE Scanning Feature is a feature you have to see for yourself to believe.

 How does the NEW – SMA V3D which stands for VISUAL 3D = 3D LIKE Scanning Featurework?

 Technically it works like this:

There are TWO-2 lamps in the SMA Scanner Range Scan Heads – with a top lamp and a bottom lamp.

In a normal 2D scanning process both lamps are ON.

With the NEW – SMA V3D which stands for VISUAL 3D = 3D LIKE Scanning mode every line of pixels takes three shots:

  • Top light only,
  • Bottom light only and
  • Both lights on.

The firmware then merges all THREE-3 images.

That’s why the NEW – SMA V3D which stand for VISUAL 3D = 3D Like Scanning Feature looks 3D-LIKE.

The NEW – SMA V3D which stand for VISUAL 3D = 3D LIKE Scanning Feature provides the operator with a major advantage when it comes to structured surfaces or things like metal, seals or anything that is shiny or reflective.

Sometimes there are golden or silver like prints located in books requiring scanning.

When scanned with an overhead scanner the image created looks very unusual & of poor quality.

The viewer can’t even see in the scan what the original was like as the metal effect disappears and is turned into grey or dark yellow or beige.

Even with the previous SMA models the MAP MASTER & SCAN MASTER now renamed as the VERSASCAN the Coins as shown in the attached SMA VersaScan V3D which stands for VISUAL 3D Scanning Sample of the FIVE-5 Coins scanned in 2D Mode are less clear than the coins captured using the NEW – SMA V3D which stands for VISUAL 3D = 3D Like Scanning mode.

With the NEW – SMA V3D which stands for VISUAL 3D = 3D LIKE Scanning Feature scanning the gold, silver & copper coins & images in Books appear more true to the original!

Many Library & Archival Institutions are aware of this problem and are searching for a solution to be able to capture these difficult originals true to the color.

The NEW – SMA V3D which stands for VISUAL 3D = 3D LIKE Scanning Feature provides that solution.

DME ISO Scanning Resolution Test Chart No. 2

The number 2.0 for example, means that there are two line pairs ( TWO-2 black ones and TWO-2 white ones ) per mm which equals a VERY LOW RESOLUTION.

The number 9.0 for example, means that there are NINE line pairs ( NINE-9 black ones and NINE-9 white ones ) per mm which equals  an EXTREMELY HIGH RESOLUTION.

Should you request the set of Sample images from DS & ME the first thing you will note is that the .TIFF images produced on the SMA MASTER SERIES of Scanners are all at the upper end of the range & thus producing EXTREMELY HIGH RESOLUTION images all the way form 300 DPI through to 1,200 DPI.

This is the type of quality image you should expect from the scanner you choose for the scanning of your Valuable & in many instances Irreplaceable Material.

2014-JANUARY: Land Survey Office Switzerland decides on an SMA model MAP MASTER XL now renamed as the VERSASCAN 3650

SMA MAP MASTER XL for A 0 PLUS Maps, Drawings & Large Documents

The Land Survey Office in Switzerland was looking for a high resolution large format scanner to digitize all their maps and prints.   Due to their requirement for very high geometric and dimensional accuracy a sheet feed system was not a viable option.

After very precise scanning tests with different geometric test targets and color matching charts the decision was made to purchase a MAP MASTER XL now renamed as the VERSASCAN 3650.

Other vendors were not able to meet their expectations.

Why is the SMA Electronic Document GmbH MAP MASTER now renamed as the VERSASCAN Large Format Scanner ideally suited to this application?

The SMA Electronic Document GmbH SCAN MASTER & MAP MASTER now renamed as the VERSASCAN range of Large Format Scanners are designed for use with Book/s & Fragile Document/s of A 3 = 297 x 420 mm or 11.69 × 16.54 inches in size up to A 0 = 841 × 1189 mm or 33.11 × 46.81 inches in size.

The SMA Electronic Document GmbH SCAN MASTER &: MAP MASTER now renamed as the VERSASCAN range of Large Format Scanners are the ONLY Book & Fragile Documents Scanners manufactured that do not suffer deterioration of Image Quality due to several important factors.

1. The loss of Image Quality due to the image sensor being miniaturised plus being located at some distance from the original material.

2. Distortion of the Image Quality due to the image sensor being located behind a lens which no matter the quality of the lens causes drop-off & the potential for hotspots in the images produced.

3. Distortion of the Image Quality caused by ambient lighting either natural or from some other source e.g. Overhead Lighting with reflections & other characteristics being introduced to the images produced with the result that less than maximum quality images are produced.

Why is this so?

 

The SMA SCAN MASTER & MAP MASTER now renamed as the VERSASCAN range are in effect almost a contact imaging process where the Book & or Fragile Documents are positioned extremely close to the flat full size of the origin width Color Scanning CCD Array scanner head with only a layer of clear glass separating the Book & or Fragile Document from the CCD Array scanner head.

Why is this important?

 

What is the result of this Closed System of utilising a flat full size of the origin width Color Scanning CCD Array scanner head against all other Large Format Book & Fragile Document Scanners?

The image does not have to pass through a lens that can & does cause distortions [ which must be compensated for ] plus it does not have to be adjusted to compete with overhead lighting & or sunlight coming in via windows as the flat CCD Array scanner head has its own LED light source under the glass thus eliminating distortions caused by Lenses, Distance from the original or competition with overhead lighting required for the Operator to work in a friendly Occupational, Safety & Health – OS&H environment.

The SMA SCAN MASTER & MAP MASTER now renamed as the VERSASCAN range of Large Format Book & Fragile Document Scanners produce superior image quality with no corner Lens Distortion induced drop off & the image information is picked up by a flat full size of the origin width Color Scanning CCD Array scanner head & not a miniature CCD or CMOS thumb size Array scanner head with resultant image drop off due to the distance of the miniature CCD or CMOS thumb size Array scanner head from the original that can be anywhere from around a half [ ½ ] a metre to over a metre in distance.

The SMA MAP MASTER now renamed as the VERSASCAN - a unique A 0+ flat bed scanner for large, fragile single sheet documents such as Newspaper/s, Photograph/s, Map/s, Plan/s & Engineering, Architectural plus other types of Drawing/s and other original/s that do not require a book cradle and cannot be put in a feeder.
