In order to capture the natural essence of materials/art there is nothing as good as using a traditional photographic approach (from optical to lighting concepts).
Therefore, one of our goals has always been: “being able to concentrate the power and flexibility of a photographic studio into our scanners”.
Another goal has been: “our scanners should be operated without the need for extensive photographic knowledge”.
Especially the lighting presented many challenges because we also wanted:
- our images being the result of real light changes as in a real photographic studio;
- to be able to set the scanner lighting automatically and without physical interaction by the operator.
