Heidelberg Extends Its Digital Solutions for Photokina 2000


Colorcam Multi-Shot, the first A3 scanner with FireWire connection and new PC scanning software for desktop scanners open up new possibilities for the photographic and publishing industry

Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) will be presenting an extended range of products for the photographic and publishing industry at Photokina in Cologne from 20 through 25 September. At its stand in Hall 09/1, A038 - B038, the world market leader for printing and publishing solutions will also be setting new standards for professional digital solutions in the photographic industry.

Colorcam multi-shot feature
In addition to the digital one-shot camera back Colorcam, which was successfully introduced to an international audience at drupa in May, Heidelberg is now presenting the multi-shot camera back at Photokina. The Piezo technology which has now been integrated makes 1+ shot, 4 shot and 16 shot modes possible, in addition to the original 1 shot feature. The Piezo element barely moves the data chip in 1+, 4 and 16 shot modes, thereby ensuring moiré-free pictures. This means that the Colorcam's image quality can even be used for ultra-high-quality applica- tions such as large-format printing or direct repro.

New Linoscan 2650 scanner
The new Linoscan scanner family presented at CeBIT in the spring has been extended by the Linoscan 2650 for Photokina. The A3+ scanner is the first in its class to support both SCSI and FireWire connections, setting a whole new standard in terms of speed. Alongside the Linoscan 2650, which runs under the Mac OS operating system, Heidelberg will also be presenting the Linoscan 1400 and the Linoscan 1800, an A4 unit offering 3048 dpi optical resolution.

Newcolor 5000 now available
Also on display will be the newly developed PC scanning software Newcolor 5000, which is based on the high-end Newcolor 7000 solution presented at drupa. Newcolor 5000 has a completely redesigned interface, a new assistant and optimized calculation algorithms, thereby opening up a whole range of new possibilities for the PC platform in the field of professional scanning solutions.

Extended color management
Heidelberg's stand will also feature the new Version 4.0 of the familiar Color Management solutions Scanopen, Viewopen and Printopen. This new version has a new, significantly improved and standardized design, and includes even more functions than before. Viewopen, for example, supports the calculation of complex ICC profiles and matrix profiles for optimum use in Photoshop, while Printopen allows black generation to be checked as early as the proofing stage.
