DRS 2000 DCS



Specially designed for the Fine-Art, Decor and Professional Cartography
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 designed for the most demanding applications such as Fine-Art / Decor reproduction as well as for Professional Digital Cartography.

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.

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, allowing 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 3D calculation and post-scan light variations for real-time light changes, 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.

Some of the other benefits introduced by the DRS 2000 DCS system are: no glass is needed in order to flatten the originals; 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; extremely powerful and complete driving software with special Fine-Art / Decor features as “Light Inspector” software tool which allows to test thousands of different light schematics in real-time providing a flat or 3D visual appearance emphasizing the original texture of the material. METIS DCS-RAW format allows to change the light schematics when required without the need to rescan the original greatly improving the workflow.
