DRS 1300 DCS



The perfect merging between extreme quality and productivity for the most demanding market
It integrates METIS exclusive DC SynchroLight (Patent protected technology)
General details

The DRS 1300 DCS introduces important features which have no comparison in any other system on the market such as the innovative DC SynchroLight lighting system (Dynamically Controlled Synchronized Light) which incorporates a unique technology developed by METIS, covered by patent deposited in January 2010, which allows to dynamic control the light in the scanning area.

DC SynchroLight technology gives the ability to control and change dynamically, instantly and automatically the angle and intensity of the light emitted by the light sources in the scanning area, making it possible to optimize the result of the digitization, depending on the type and nature of the originals and thus providing results previously unreachable.

In addition to the DC SynchroLight, METIS has also designed a proprietary software tool that allows post-scan light variations for real-time light changes and calculating 3D data from 2D color data, without the need to rescan the original; post-scan light changes enable to select the best light schematic in a matter of seconds and providing unique results unreachable by any other system.

Some of the new benefits introduced by the DRS 1300 DCS system are: high scanning speed; unique METIS SuperScan mode; the motorized digital camera allows achieving an optical resolution of 800PPI (and up to 1600x800PPI) on the A2 format; an unmatched lighting system with DC SynchroLight technology for light schematic variations; it supports the new METIS Scan Director software expressly designed for the industrial and decor applications; special scanning mode (require combining 2 SuperScan images into the Light Inspector software) allowing the generation of a dense and accurate Depth MAP for 3D printing/engraving purposes.
