New IQ Quattro X 36- and 44-inch scanners are now available

Contex, the world leader in large format scanning, today introduces the IQ Quattro X, the 5th-generation Contex CIS scanner series.

The IQ Quattro X is an essential scanner for reprographic shops, the AEC community, and businesses that require scanning accuracy with technical drawings and other large format documents, especially at high volume. The Energy Star®–compliant IQ Quattro X series comes in 36- and 44-inch widths, and is immediately available from resellers worldwide.

The IQ Quattro X is designed with innovative technologies, scanning 40% faster and transferring data at three times the speed of its predecessor. The scanner is also equipped with Contex Live Alignment, a new technology that ensures sharp image alignment even at high scanning speeds.

Loaded with exclusive features, the IQ Quattro X series is also Nextimage Remote–enabled. This feature brings all main functions for basic scanning and copying directly in front of the operator via a tablet — saving valuable time.

“Contex is always innovating and we are excited to launch the world’s fastest CIS scanner, the IQ Quattro X series. Our advanced technologies are based on customer feedback, and the results exceed customers’ requirements for quality, speed and ease of use,” comments Jacob Bendix, CCO & VP Global Sales & Marketing, Contex A/S.

He continues: “The IQ Quattro X is a must-have for businesses that want to expedite scanning projects with exceptional results.”

IQ Quattro X

Smart, productive scanning

Faster in color than any other large format CIS scanner in the market, the IQ Quattro X scans up to 17.8 inches per second. The IQ Quattro X also boasts a 1GB extreme buffer, which eliminates waiting between scans.

Further boosting productivity, the Nextimage Remote scanning app can vastly reduce the number of times the operator needs to move between the scanner and the workstation. It also gives users the freedom to move away from the scanner for maximum convenience and comfort.

Advanced image quality

The IQ Quattro X captures every detail from technical drawings with 48-bit CIS technology and 1200 dpi optical resolution.

The scanner series is equipped with Contex CleanScan CIS modules, which maximize optical image quality with dual-sided LED lighting. Unique to Contex scanners, these modules eliminate creases and folds in originals, which are typically a challenge for CIS scanners. 

The IQ Quattro X also includes Color Fringe Removal (CFR), an advanced Contex-patented filtering technology designed to remove the fringes inherent in CIS strobing scanning devices.
