This is possible thanks to different technical solutions especially designed by Metis for this large format scanner (that has no equal in other scanners) such as the new DC SynchroLight lighting system and the 'Light Inspector' software tool. In fact, the DC SynchroLight lighting system (patent protected technology) allows to obtain thousands of different light schematics providing a high capacity of image enhancement and quality optimisation.
The DRS 2000 DCS is the largest model in the Metis DRS DCS family with a scanning format of up to 200 x 121cm
LED based lighting (IR/UV free) active only during the scanning process provide for thousands of different light schematics
With an optical resolution of 300-1000 PPI (adjustable from 100 to 2000 PPI) and a very large depth of field (user selectable)
The Metis DRS 2000 DCS large format scanner is the largest model in the Metis DRS DCS family with a scanning area of up to 200x121cm. This large format scanner has been designed for the most demanding applications such as Fine-Art / Decor reproduction as well as for Professional Digital Cartography. The DRS 2000 DCS introduces new important features which have no comparison in any other system on the market such as the innovative DC SynchroLight lighting system (Dynamically Controlled Synchronised Light) which incorporates a new technology developed by Metis, covered by patent deposited in January 2010, which allows dynamic control of the light in the scanning area.
The DC SynchroLight technology gives the ability to control and change dynamically, instantly and automatically the angle and intensity of the light emitted by the light sources in the scanning area, making it possible to optimise the result of the digitisation, depending on the type and nature of the originals. In addition to the DC SynchroLight, Metis has also designed a proprietary software tool that allows 3D scanning and post-scan light variations for real-time light changes, without the need to rescan the original; post-scan light changes enable to select the best light schematic in a matter of seconds and providing unique results unreachable by any other system.
Some of the other benefits introduced by the new DRS 2000 DCS large format scanner are: no glass is needed in order to flatten the originals; the digital camera integrated into the DRS 2000 DCS system has been vertically motorised in order to allow achieving an optical resolution of 1000PPI (and up to 2000x1000PPI); high scanning speed and operatively; perfect geometrical accuracy and high depth of field; extremely powerful and complete driving software with special Fine-Art / Decor features as 'Light Inspector tool' which allow to test thousands of different light schematics in real-time; special 3D and gravure scanning mode and filters allow to highly enhance the original texture / material. Metis DCS-RAW format allows to change the light schematics when required without the need to rescan the original.
