The VERSASCAN 4870 double A0 flatbed scanner comes with V3D – a new scanning technology which allows users to scan many different types of originals. It offers the capability of digitizing structured surfaces such as wood, rubber, plastic, fabrics, carpet and many more types of material. Finally, light reflecting items such as coins, seals and metal prints can be captured at the highest quality. The V3D technology presents new opportunities as it can be applied to materials outside the normal archive and library world. V3D stands for VISUAL 3D. It is a newly designed scanning technology that produces results that look like 3D. The process is based on different lighting scenarios where the same area is being captured with several different lighting angles on the fly. The software then combines the separate images into one image. As a result V3D images offer perfect reproductions of nearly any structured surface. In addition it increases the depth of field significantly. This approach is unique and raises the outstanding image quality of SMA scanners to another level. The V3D function can be disabled and regular 2D scanning can be performed.

Operating the VERSASCAN 4870 2A0 flatbed scanner is as easy as operating a photo copier. Open the lid, place the document, close the lid and hit the scan button – that’s it! Alternatively the scanner can conveniently be operated via foot switch.

SMA is the only company in the world that offers a full line of large format flatbed scanners varying from A1+ to double A0+ as well as a line of manual and robotic book scanners. All flatbed scanners are suitable for scanning large and fragile originals that do not require a book cradle or cannot be handled by a feeder. Due to its newly designed roll-away mount it is easy to move the scanners around – regardless of their size. Simply unlock the flatbed scanner, fold it up and off you go. Alternatively a motorized height adjustment is available in order to accommodate different working positions.
