Hd Ultra Top Prod

Contex's HD Ultra wide format scanner has won Wide Format Imaging 2012 Top Product Awards for Best Wide Format Scanner (24 inches+).  Voted for by readers of US-based Wide Format Imaging, the seventh annual Top Products Awards recognises breakthrough products that have created the most excitement in the industry, and that have been a valuable asset to the wide/superwide format businesses over the last year.

Contex's HD Ultra, released in Q4 2011, has been receiving rave reviews for its advancements in speed, productivity and image quality. Wide-Format Imaging will feature the HD Ultra in the March issue, and will present the plaque to Contex at the ISA International Sign Expo in Orlando, FL.

"We are very pleased to receive this honour from Wide Format Imaging," comments Phil Magenheim, President, Contex Americas. "When designing the HD Ultra, we incorporated our customer's valuable feedback that we've received over the years. The result is a well-designed product that is already proving to be very successful in the market."

Groundbreaking Advancements

The HD Ultra is the market's most advanced wide format scanner, breaking the technology barrier with unmatched productivity and versatility. The scanner is built with Contex's new xDTR2 technology and Gigabit Ethernet, enabling it to output images faster than any other scanner on the market. This is significant boost for reprographic shops or offices with high-volume scanning projects whose productivity is measured by more than just scans per inch, but how quick the scanned images can be accessed.

ENERGY STAR compliant, the HD Ultra is available in 36- and 42-inches, and is the most field-upgradeable wide format scanner in its class. The scanner comes in two versions: Professional, for high-volume applications, and Office, for daily office use or walk-up scanning. The HD Ultra is also available as a multi-function product (MFP), which includes a space-saving high stand that allows users to combine the wide format scanner with most large format printers.

Contex and its distributors will be exhibiting the HD Ultra at events across the United States, including Graphics of the Americas, March 1-3, in Miami Beach, FL, booth #1024 and ISA International Sign Expo in Orlando, FL, March 22-24 at booth # 2879. The company will also be hosting product demonstrations at ARC Imaging in Addison, IL on March 20th, RJ Young in Nashville, TN on April 4th, and Topaz Engineering in Hingham, MA on April 26th.
