WideTEK 36ART - Perfecting the Art of Art Scanning

World Premiere! New large format scanner designed specifically to scan fine art

WideTEK® 36 ART enables contact free scanning of works of art like oil and acrylic paintings, watercolors, charcoal and pastel drawings, mixed media collages and antique works of art; at 600dpi in formats up to 914 x 1524mm / 36 x 60 inches.

The new WideTEK® 36 ART-600 was designed for archiving and reproduction of works of art. Museums can digitize their own collection for sale as a print or for publication on the internet or in catalogs. Reprography specialists can offer fine art digitization as a service, which has already proven to be a lucrative market.

Original artworks are moved under the CCD camera elements completely contact free, protecting the art from any damage and making it possible to scan a painting that is still wet, as long as it is framed or the sides are dry enough to place the artwork on the scanning bed.

In cooperation with large format printers from HP, Canon and EPSON, the WideTEK® 36 ART-600 brings the basis for professional art reproduction. Native printer drivers installed on the scanner make color accuracy on the resulting image even higher.

Get Scan2OCR For All Bookeye® 4 V2 Models

Scan multipage jobs while OCR runs in the background

With the software option Scan2OCR, transform books, and other documents quickly and easily into searchable multipage PDF files. OCR and text analysis is performed during the scan in the background, ensuring a smooth workflow and fast production without having to wait for OCR results.

Scan in job mode and OCR the entire page or multiple pages scanned, using multipage PDF mode. The OCR process runs in the background so that you can continue scanning subsequent pages in the job. This function is useful when scanning complete source material such as books, legal files and other multipage documents for which the operator wants all of the text OCRed.

Scan2OCR is based on the Tesseract OCR engine and the layout analysis software Leptonica. The Tesseract engine is considered one of the best OCR software engines available and currently supports more than 100 languages, including many from Asia.

WideTEK® 36CL Bundles

Smart pricing on powerful production oriented bundles

Three bundles for the new WideTEK 36CL scanner offer maximum value at a very attractive price. All bundles come with two years limited warranty plus one year of our Full Coverage Warranty, the most complete warranty in the industry. Each bundle is targeted for a special application but can also be upgraded to another bundle with the purchase of a few options. All bundles include software and a built in PC, no external equipment needed.

The WideTEK® 36CL-600 is by far the fastest color CIS scanner on the market, running at 10 inches per second at 200 dpi in full color. At the full width of 36" and 600dpi resolution, the scanner still runs at 1.7 inches per second.

The WT36CL-600-BDL1 bundle was designed for conversion projects which require extensive scanning, automatic file naming, indexing and batch scanning capabilities. It includes an ergonomic floorstand and an adjustable paper catch. This configuration is intended to be used with external software like our Batch Scan Wizard which is included in the bundle.

The WT36CL-600-BDL2 bundle is the perfect walk up scanning solution for self-service applications in just about any location. In addition to the features of the BDL1 bundle, it comes with a full HD 22 inch touchscreen attached to the floor stand via a user adjustable monitor arm. Operation and full display of the scans make this configuration the preferred choice for walk up applications.

If copying directly to wide format printers is your main application but you still want to be able to use the scanner for walk up and larger scanning jobs, the WT36CL-600-MFP bundle is the right choice. Since the printer connection is via Gigabit network, printers can be kept separate and the user can enjoy the ergonomics of a free standing scanner, even in a different room.
