Scanners for artwork and paintings

Sharp, high-quality scans of artwork and paintings

As the world grows increasingly digital the need to scan fine art and artwork has grown as well. If you are an artist you know how important it is to take care of your originals. Artwork and fine art can be fragile and hard to keep in perfect condition. In our experience it’s not recommended to feed one-of-a-kind artwork through a feed-through scanner.

Being able to place the original face-up with your own steady hands makes all the difference. That´s exactly why we have made a large contact-free art scanner HD Apeiron/42 and a large flatbed scanner IQ FLEX.

Keep the original safe and sound

Letting the scanner handle your favorite piece of art can be scary. With a Contex contact-free or flatbed scanner, you are in total control. It is all in your careful hands. And the scan result will make you feel like you have thousands of originals – it is that good! In addition, our HD Ultra X scanner can give you the excitement of high-quality at a higher pace if that is what you need.

Oversize scanning with IQ FLEX

At Contex we always try to develop features which enables you to work smarter before, during and after you scan. Sometimes you may even need to scan originals that are larger than the scan glass. With the stitching feature on IQ FLEX, you can do just that. We´ve also made sure that you can change the settings directly on the touchscreen. We call it “walk up and scan”. Editing and color correction is easily done afterwards in the editing program of your choice. We recommend our award-winning software Nextimage 5.
