METIS EDS GAMMA
The innovative A1 desktop planetary scanner with a superior image quality, ergonomics and high productivity in a unique integrated solution.
EDS (Easy Digital Scanner) means great quality, speed and ease-of-use since 2011.
The EDS GAMMA is an innovative A1 desktop planetary scanner, the latest addition to the METIS EDS family (Easy Digital Scanner). The EDS is a special line of professional scanners that has been created by METIS in order to overcome the usual limitations inherent this category of products. In particular, this scanner offers a superior image quality, ergonomics, ease of use and high productivity in a unique integrated solution.
Among the main characteristics of the EDS-GAMMA there are:
- scan area size and resolution can vary according to user needs thanks to the integrated zoom optics and to the variable camera height and position; this makes possible to acquire very large originals (even larger than the A1 format) or increase the optical resolution over 800 PPI on smaller formats
- original METIS V-table solution with automatic shape recognition, deskew and curvature correction features
- unrivaled image quality that is far beyond any other similar solution
- extremely rapid acquisition time
- integrated METIS LED lighting solution with advanced software control
- comprehensive EDS acquisition software with many powerful and useful features
- extremely simple to use thanks to the EDS software user friendly “icon based” interface which also supports touch screens.
