Metis Superscan PM3D

The Metis Superscan PM3D® is based on new scanning concepts invented by Metis and aimed to respond to the special needs of the fine-art, industrial and decoration markets.

The Superscan PM3D® in fact integrate innovative technologies (patent protected) that allows to scan colour and calculate 3D surface embossing information from it, and at very high resolution even on large originals.

The maximum scanning area of 200 x 130cm can be extended to larger size thanks to the Scan Merge tool

Unique Lighting

Colour, specular reflections, embossing effects and even 3D are all calculated from the information provided by the lighting system

High Resolution

With an optical resolution of 1200 PPI (adjustable from 100 to 36000 PPI) and a very large depth of field

About

The scanner extends the lighting and Superscan capabilities of the Metis DRS DCS series providing the ability to enlighten the original with 8 different and independent light sources, each aimed to a specific result. In particular the Superscan PM3D® can enlighten the original with sharp or soft light sources from virtually any direction including also the possibility to control specular reflections (i.e. for gold/glossy materials). Thousands of different light schematics are possible and achieved automatically through sophisticated software and hardware controls.

Furthermore the new Superscan PM3D® now allows to scan a wood plate orientated in any direction on the scanning table thanks to the new lighting system. 3D emboss scanning (depth MAP generation) is calculated based on the information provided by the different lightings and using unique algorithms developed by METIS that allows a dense and detailed 3D reconstruction of the original surface. Different kinds of embossed surfaces can be scanned with optimal results (wood, wallpapers, tiles, stones, etc.) and even glossy materials.

The Superscan PM3D® is the first scanner to breach the resolution limits caused by the number of pixels in the imaging sensors thanks to an innovative opto-mechanical design that allows a native optical resolution of 1200PPI on the full scanning area (200x130cm). And thanks to the Scan Merge tool scanning very large originals (exceeding the scanning area) is now also possible with perfect results.

The Superscan PM3D® adopt the new METIS Scan Director software that have been designed especially to fulfil the requirements of the industrial, fine-arts and decorative markets and for handling 3D data.
