Flexible design means endless opportunities

Combine materials like never before. You can place anything on the scanner bed and let the HD iFLEX do the scanning. The HD iFLEX supports scanning any shape or size and can be used to scan original artwork, create product catalogs or make digital archives of your most fragile originals.

Up to A1/D-size originals

A simple guide in Nextimage will help scanning documents twice the size of the scan bed. Simply place the documents and follow the guide. This truely makes the HD iFLEX an A1 scanner in a A2 size.

Book scanning at very reasonable cost

The Contex HD iFLEX gives you a very beneficial ROI, keeping the outstanding, renowned Contex CCD quality.

When the image is a shape – light is the solution

Shadows are normally unwanted when scanning originals with folds and other shapes. The iFLEX scanner has ultra-bright LED light that best emulates natural light in a flatbed design and eliminates unwanted shadows in your originals. When scanning shapes, like brail, carvings or plants, the light source is carefully designed to capture the shadows that make up the shapes of the objects. We call this Natural Light.

Quality is a brand promise

The HD iFLEX’s high color fidelity can be delivered in Adobe RGB, sRGB or even RAW RGB in full 48-bit color. Combined with true camera optics, a single 4-channel CCD in full 600 x 600 dpi optical resolution the HD iFLEX will capture every detail right every time.

Imagination is the only limit

The large flatbed surface provides flexibility like never before. Scan up A2/C-size originals of any size or shape – or scan documents up to A1/D-size. The flatbed surface is unrestricting and supports originals in unlimited thickness. You can even place multiple items and scan them into single or multipage image files using our award winning Nextimage software.

Key technologies in Contex HD iFLEX.

As the world’s largest developer and producer of wide format imaging solutions, Contex leads the market with innovative technology and advanced scan and copy software solutions. The HD iFLEX scanner utilizes a long list of key technologies unique to a Contex scanner.

CCD technology

The HD Ultra series scanners captures all details with advanced 48-bit CCD technology. By combining CCD with Contex Natural Light and high quality camera optics you are ensured the best possible results in every scan.

Full 48 bit workflow

To get the best results, your scanner and software should work with full 48-bit data. Where other scanners ignore some of this data, the HD iFLEX is the world’s only flatbed scanner with true 48-bit.

 

Adobe RGB, Device RGB and sRGB

Contex HD Ultra scanners have several different options for color space. In addition to the common sRGB the HD Ultra also offers color spaces with wider gamut as preferred by color specialists.

Adobe RGB and Device RGB has a larger color gamut than sRGB, hereby allowing differences in very bright and saturated colors to be maintained in the file.

X-Rite ICC profiles

Using X-Rite generated profiles ensures the highest possible color accuracy for the demanding customers. X-Rite is the global leader in color science and technology.

xDTR2

Delivering 3 times the bandwidth of USB2, our unique Gigabit Ethernet implementation with xDTR2 is lightning fast and accelerates workflows even further via network sharing, where scans can be controlled from any computer.
