DRS 2000 DCS


Specially designed for the Industrial and Decor markets
It integrates METIS exclusive DC SynchroLight (Patent protected technology)
General details

The DRS 2000 DCS is the largest model in the METIS DRS-DCS family with a scanning format of up to 200x121cm. It has been specially designed for the most demanding Industrial and Decor applications.

The DRS 2000 DCS introduces new 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). This incorporates a new technology developed by METIS, protected by patent filed in January 2010, that allows dynamic control of the light in the scanning area.

The 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.

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 to calculate 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 to provide unique results unreachable by any other system.

Hereinafter are some of the other DRS 2000 DCS features: the digital camera integrated into the DRS 2000 DCS system is vertically motorized in order to allow achieving an optical resolution of 1000PPI (and up to 2000x1000PPI); high scanning speed and operativity; perfect geometrical accuracy and high depth of field; new METIS Scan Director software for Fine-Art and Decor applications is available as well; the special 3D calculating mode allows the generation of a dense and accurate Depth MAP for 3D printing/engraving purposes (it requires to combine at least 2 SuperScan images in the Light Inspector software).
