Hi-Res A3 Scanner
Picture shows the ScanMaker 9800XL
with optional Transparency Adaptor
Features And Benefits
• Large Format A3 Scanning Area
The ScanMaker 9800XL is able to scan large format work up to
A3 or batch scan multiple images with it’s 17” x 12” scan area.
• High 1600 x 3200dpi Resolution
An all new internal design includes precision mechanics, optics
and CCD sensor to enable 533% enlargements of images for
printing at 300dpi.
• 48-bit Colour with Pre-Press Quality 3.7Dmax
The new 48-bit sensor and optics deliver a pre-press quality
optical density of 3.7D, resulting in accurate colours and high
levels of detail in subtle highlight and shadow areas.
• FireWire, USB and SCSI-II Connectivity
• 16” x 12” Transparency Option
The optional transparency scan area is almost as large as the
reflective area. This large 16” x 12” transparency area, combined with it’s high-density of 3.7D is particularly valuable to
medical professionals resolving huge amounts of X-Ray detail.
• Network Scanning
Windows users can benefit from sharing this scanner over a
local area network. Once installed, ScanWizard Pro is used on
each client as if the scanner was directly connected to the PC.
• Powerful Software
99% accurate ABBYY FineReader Sprint OCR, Adobe
Photoshop Elements, Ulead PhotoExplorer, ScanWizard Pro and
SilverFast Ai Pro (with IT-8 calibration) are all included.
• Mac OS X and Windows XP Compliant
This scanner is fast. Connect with FireWire and a full A3,
1600dpi, 48-bit scan will complete in under six minutes.
Includes a PCI FireWire card (Windows) & cable (USB too).
SilverFast Ai Pro 6 is fully compatible with Mac OS X (native)
and Windows XP. Plug-in is fully Adobe Photoshop 7 compliant.
• Scratch & Dust Removal
• Multi-Sampling
Whilst the quality of professional CCD based scanners
continues to improve, multi-sampling can further reduce
unavoidable random noise. Scan times are longer but often the
end result can be dramatically improved.
Two Year Warranty
ICC Profile System
(Mac & Win)
SRD (Smart Removal of Defects) is a powerful feature of
SilverFast Ai Pro that can eliminate most scratches and dust
particles from the final scan (see pages 4 to 6).

OPTIONAL TRANSPARENCY
ADAPTOR
EXCEPTIONAL IMAGE QUALITY
The TMA1600 offers a very large
16” x 12” scanning area and comes
complete with templates to lift the film
clear of the glass, avoiding newton ring
distortion (see next page).
Perfect for scanning medium and large format transparencies (up to eight 5 x
4” transparencies at a time), larger transparencies such as 10” x 8” or even
contact sheet scanning of 35mm film.
The ScanMaker 9800XL has a 21,360-element
CCD with a resolution that reaches up to 1,600dpi.
It is capable of delivering full 48-bit depth colour
for richer and smoother tonal values, and an
optical range of 3.7 Dmax allows users to capture
details in highlight and shadow areas, as well as
accurately represent gradation and natural colour
from originals without sacrificing image details.
For Medical Professionals however, the ScanMaker
9800XL delivers many of the benefits offered by
very expensive, specialised medical scanners. In fact,
this scanner offers many other benefits besides.
3.4Dmax
The 16” x 12” transparency scan area can scan the
critical areas of almost all large format X-Rays. The
ability to resolve huge amounts of highlight and
shadow detail means that subtle X-Ray information
will not be missed.

Scanning Software
for Macintosh & Windows
- Scratch and Dust Removal
“... a totally new experience beyond any imagined expectations.”
Shutterbug April ‘99
SilverFast SRD - Dust & Scratch Removal
SRD is a software-based dust and scratch removal system which has been
integrated into the scanning workflow. A real-time window selection helps to
quickly find the optimum settings for the SRD controls.
Dust and scratches are highlighting in red. Real-time selection controls help to
quickly find the best possible setting. Any image details that might be affected
by SRD can comfortably be excluded by using masks.
ACR - Adaptive Colour Restoration
GANE - Grain & Noise Elimination
SilverFast ACR brings back faded out colours or normalizes oversaturated colours. Whilst this is an easy-to-use, autpmatic function, a
slider adds individual control to increase or decrease colour saturation.
GANE substantially reduces artefacts from noise or film
grain. Grain becomes more noticable at higher resolutions
with high speed film. The SilverFast GANE filter uses three
simple steps to reduce the negative effects of grain and
includes a slider for fine tuning.
ACR can also be used in conjunction with the Selective Colour
Correction. Any setting that has been chosen can now be influenced
with the ACR function (e.g. if you have chosen your corrections but
want more or less saturation), just use the ACR slider.

Predictable Colour
In the process of colour reproduction, it has always been difficult to get an
exact match between final scan and what you see in the scan software’s
preview. SilverFast Ai 6 solves this with a unique integration into the
Adobe® Photoshop® colour management environment. The colours you
see in the Preview are exactly the colours you get on the final scan.
Final Scan
SilverFast Ai Preview
Stand-Alone Application
QuickTime Movies Online Training
SilverFast can now be operated by its
own Stand-Alone application in addition
to the existing Photoshop and Twain
Plug-in. SilverFast’s Stand-Alone application “SF_App” brings total independence
to SilverFast. Working under Mac and
PC, no other application is required for
scanning.
SilverFast is the first imaging
software to supply 1:1
Quicktime movies with sound
as online training. On line
learning dramatically reduces
the time required to learn
SilverFast’s many powerful
functions.
Powerful Automatic Image Adjustment
SilverFast Ai’s powerful auto-adjust works with artificial
intelligence and can handle the majority of tasks involving
image enhancement.
Brilliant Sharpness
SilverFast Ai has the best
sharpness function (USM)
available. Sharpness is a
significant feature for brilliant
images but controlling it can
be difficult. Again, SilverFast
Ai makes it easy to see the
effect by presenting a before
and after image.
Maximum Dynamic Range
The Auto-Adjust can be easily configured to any situation, as
in the above example where a highlight colour cast needs to
be eliminated from the image. Highlight min and max values
can be preset under the “Option-Dialog” and adjusted to any
production requirement. Whatever the task, with one click,
the user can achieve an optimised image quickly.
Achieving maximum dynamic range is crucial for the
best possible quality. SilverFast Ai works internally with
a 16 bit colour space to ensure no information from the
ArtixScan is lost. In combination with the ArtixScan’s
high sensitivity Kodak CCD and glass-free scanning, a
very accurate pre-press quality result is assured.
CMYK SoftProof
By getting the image right before scanning, a great deal
of time can be saved. CMYK Softproof allows the output
colours to be viewed and optimised prior to scanning.
Simply selecting the required ICC profile allows the output colours to be viewed in the Prescan window.

Professional Colour Correction
Selective colour correction has always been an important
tool for high-end colour reproduction. It gives the operator
the ability to change individual colours without effecting
other colours of the image.
LaserSoft Imaging has improved selective colour correction,
making it as intuitive and easy to use as any other tool of
SilverFast Ai. SilverFast Ai can even combine its selective
colour correction with “Simple Masking” and up to four
layers to make very complex corrections possible directly
on the SilverFast Ai preview.

Integrated IT-8 Calibration
IT-8 Calibration is the industry standard
for scanner calibration. SilverFast Ai
Pro has integrated the IT8 Calibration
so the user can immediately run
through the calibration process.
SilverFast Ai’s colour management
implementation complies with all
colour spaces in accordance with the
highest colour management standards
while remaining in full harmony with
Adobe® Photoshop®.

ScanPilot
Pre-press scanning used to
require professional skills.
SilverFast Ai changed all
that and now even first
time scanner users can
achieve brilliant results
by using ScanPilot.
ScanPilot guides the user
through the steps required
to deliver a perfect image.
- Negative Scanning Made Easy
Nothing comes close to
delivering this level of
ease of use.
Other SilverFast Ai Features
Negatives are perhaps the most complex films to scan. NegaFix not
only makes this insanely easy, but is highly accurate too with over
120 preset film types. To scan a negative follow these simple steps:
1. Select film manufacturer eg. Agfa
2. Select film type eg. HDC Plus
3. Select film speed and adjust exposure if required
SilverFast Ai offers full manual control of this process if required.
