CopyWorks Profiler - ICC Profiling Software
Create industry standard ICC profiles for your scanner and printer to
ensure accurate colour reproductions of your originals, giving more
versatility than a closed loop process and greater compatibility with
enterprise wide colour management systems.
TWAIN Interface
An industry standard TWAIN interface is provided for both PC and MAC*
platforms enabling data capture from your favourate TWAIN compliant
software.
(*SCSI interface only)
Batch Processing and Scheduling
• Batch process scanned archives with a choice of image filtering tools and file
conversions.
• Use Batch Schedular to run unattended batch processing when the workstation
is available or for overnight runs.
General Preferences
• Select units, language & temporary files location
path to ensure high quality, ‘streak’ free, copies & scans that save end users time, money and reduce media
waste. Any dust entering the open aperture, is outside the focus and not seen by the CCD cameras.
Software Options
Illumination. Folded and creased originals could cause annoying shadowing effects on scans and copies but

this is now eliminated by using a transparent material at the original path, maximizing the depth of illumination.

Automatic Camera Alignment (AutoStitch). Colortrac scanners have a fully automatic digital CCD alignment tool
that enables users to perform camera to camera stitching as a simple software operation. There is no need to remove
panels or to get your screwdriver out to align cameras. Once the alignment is set, ACTion Imaging’s pivoted, three point mounted chassis and
optics ensures that it stays SET, and stable, even when the scanner is moved or re-located within the premises.
Colour Calibration. All scanners use Dynamic Normalisation Application (DNA) with 12-bit super sampled data to analyze and automatically set
‘dark’ and ‘light’ levels. The colour data is sent to the application s/w in its raw form with no calibration scheme imposed that can limit the range of
colours available from the scanner. Scan in industry standard sRGB colour space enabling colour management systems to
process the data accurately and specifically for the rendering device selected, thus ensuring the best possible colour
reproduction.
400Mb/s FIREWIRE and 40 MB/s Ultra Wide SCSI interfaces. Why limit yourself to one interface when you can
have the use of either Firewire with the convenience of plug and play, long cable lengths still with data speed to
