Contex HD Ultra X 6050 Scanner


HD Ultra X is the fastest collection of scanners we’ve ever made. With a top speed of up to 17.8 ips, you can increase your workflow tempo significantly. You can also switch between three different speed levels directly on the scanner’s intuitive touch panel. If speed doesn’t impress you, look at the width. This is the world’s first 60-inch CCD scanner.


USB 3.0 SuperSpeed xDTR3-     We have adapted our xDTR technology to work with the USB 3.0 SuperSpeed protocol increasing its performance dramatically. It has the fastest data transfer rate of any scanner on the market.

Gigabit Ethernet xDTR2.5–     Optimized for up to 100 MB per second. Up to 60% faster transfer rate than with xDTR2 thanks to new improved electronics.

Gbit throttling buffer control-    1GB buffer eliminates scanner pausing. Maintain your scan speeds and meet those deadlines

Contex True Size Detection-     HD Ultra X finds the paper width as it scans. No wasted time. No shoe shine just instant width detection. No more backwards and forwards movement of document while feeding it into the scanner. Just load and scan.

Static Free Touchless Glass System-     Enjoy virtually scratch free glass plates thanks to the new design of the white background pressure plate in the HD Ultra X. The pressure point is offset of the scanning line helping the glass stay free from scratches. The Minimal-friction, floating transport design of glass plate with new quick-release magnetic scan glass system, makes replacement or cleaning of glass plate easier and faster than ever.

Contex Perfect Light-   Contex Perfect Light in the HD Ultra X comes from engineers carefully selecting the very latest in light-emitting diode technology (LEDs) and combining this with specially developed diffusion filters.

OTAC-   Optimized Thickness Adjustment Control. With one press of a lever, raise and lower the OTAC to suit required media thickness. It is very fast.

FlexDoc-    Combining automatic thickness adjustment control (ATAC), all wheel drive (AWD), automatic contour correction and a new paper pressure adjustment, FlexDoc enables you to scan anything from newspaper-thin documents to posters on foam boards, gator boards and other bulky documents up to 0.6” thick.

FlexFeed-    With removable, no-rewind paper return guides, right-side loading, a funnelshaped feeder, and a convenient new exit tray, FlexFeed takes the hassle out of scanning any document, even up to 60″ wide.

SnapSize-   SnapSize makes it faster and easier to switch between different-sized documents by eliminating the need for manual software adjustments. Precision optical paper sensors register your document size and adjust the required settings automatically.

SmartShare-   This allows all users in a workgroup to operate the scanner from their own computer via Ethernet.

AccuColor-   To get the best results, your scanner and software should work with full 48-bit data. Where other scanners ignore some of this data, the HD Ultra is the world’s wide format scanner with true 48-bit color capture.

CCD-    Contex uses All-Digital cameras with advanced point-of-origin capture and onboard digital conversion ensuring minimum noise and an extended dynamic range. The unique four-linear CCD technology, with a special panchromatic line, ensures that no colors are lost when scanning monochrome. Quality colormatched LED lighting ensures the market’s highest standards for color correctness.

ALE-   Accuracy Lens Enhancement (ALE) technology that electronically maintains 0.1% +- pixel precision across any two points of the scan line thus exceeding even the most rigid requirements in the industry today. Contex delivers a very high grade of precision stability in the scanned image.
