A quality image reproduction stems from an impeccable scan, even more so in the case of an artistic work. It is with this preoccupation in mind that we propose our scanning, image normalization and retouching services for your publishing or artistic projects.
Our scanners span a wide variety of formats, from top-end drum scan to large format flat bed.
In the case of negatives or transparencies, the Heidelberg drum scan is our tool of choice, offering a staggering resolution revealing the finest details of your originals.
For opaque originals, including framed pictures, the Cruse scanner has a 40 x 60 inches scanning surface open on three faces, thus permitting a tiled capture of very large originals. With this type of scanner the scanning head and lighting system are located over the scan table, eliminating contact between the original and a glass surface as is the case with most flat bed scanners. This means rare or precious pieces can be scanned safely. Furthermore, the lighting system is controllable in a way that can reveal or flatten surface textures. Another advantage is that contrary to a photographic capture, a scan is always flat and perfectly square.
