Film Scanner Support

Critical DSW components are exchanged allowing older DSW scanners to reach a higher production performance. Such parts include a new 29/50 megapixel camera, a latest generation LED illumination source, high precision friction free linear encoders, and additional fans improving temperature control. The host computer will also be replaced with a state-of the-art workstation. These combined enhancements deliver higher quality images and make the scanner reach very short scan times, making it the fastest scanner in its class.

DSW upgrade kit to newest DSW700V Model
Every DSW600 and DSW700 can be upgraded to latest DSW700V model including 50MP camera system and Ebox2 with new touch panel operation.

Performance improvements are guaranteed for all DSW600 and DSW700 legacy models. The components in these upgrade kits will minimise system specific variability in performance and push reliability to the highest level for the 700 model. Actual results are influenced by operator-selected optical pixel size, the choice of b/w or color output, workstation speed, stage maintenance and quality. Scan resolution can be set down to 3 microns with new DSW700V upgrades.
