SilverFast revives Heidelberg High-End Scanners

Heidelberg high-end scanners get updated by SilverFast Ai STUDIO to run

SilverFast Ai Studio
(PresseBox) ( Kiel, )
LaserSoft Imaging once again, building on its advanced line of award winning scanning/
imaging software, is releasing SilverFast with new support for the high-end Heidelberg Nexscan and Tango series. This is a
breakthrough for those companies who originally purchased these legendary workhorses only to run into difficulties when
Heidelberg dropped its interest in the scanning market and discontinued support.
This professional level software breathes new life into these high quality scanners and provides a current workflow solution
to the thousands of units still in operation today. With SilverFast Ai Studio, it is now possible to integrate these scanners with
the new high powered Macs and PC’s running the most current software to date, such as OSX – Tiger.
The Topaz, Nexscan and Tango packages are similar with their inclusion of Ai Studio with IT8 calibration, HDR Studio for
48 bit processing, a 6x7 cm transparency IT8 target, a 5x7 in. reflective IT8 target (both have barcodes for automatic data
reference linking), SilverFast: the Official Guide, and the SilverFast manual. Also included is a SCSI card that is tested for your
specific application and set up.
A 2 year premium support subscription can be purchased separately for the Nexscan and Topaz which includes:
• Premium web based technical support with one business day reply time guaranteed.
• Telephone hotline with call back service.
• 2 years of free updates with installation support. As a subscriber, receive the most current version, QuickTiime movies
and documentation on a CD.
The combination of SilverFast Ai Studio and HDR Studio offer an exceptionally productive workflow. With the ability to
capture the full 48 bit dynamic range of each image, the operator can then choose between editing the file directly in the
scanning software or storing them as the new lossless compression format – JPEG 2000. The stored files, which are saved
with the unique HiRePP (High Resolution Picture Performance), can then be handed off to another workstation anywhere
(without a scanner connection) and batch processed using the timesaving Job Manager.
This workflow allows for considerable flexibility when scheduling production times for scanner operators and color
specialists. The options could be set up for:
• One operator working on one station. The operator would scan and edit 48 bit files in SilverFast Ai Studio using batch
scanning and the Job Manager.
• Two operators working on two stations. One operator would scan straight 48 bit files with no correction and store as
JPEG 2000 with HiRePP. The second operator would then work on these files using SilverFast HDR along with the Job
