A fine example og Image Access' know-how is the WideTEK® 36ART. This scanner gives every museum the opportunity to archive its art collection in the highest digital quality, publish the works in print and online media, or offer them for sale as art prints. Together with modern electronic presentation platforms, it not only gives museums a number of different ways to let the public see works of art that can only seldom be displayed in the exhibition rooms due to lack of space. The professional digitalization of paintings used to be a very complex task, but the WideTEK® 36ART has made it quick, easy, and inexpensive.

The particular strength of the WideTEK® 36ART is its 3D scan mode. With this scanning method the digital copies look especially vivid. Reproductions also get a three-dimensional appearance, making it hard to tell them apart from the originals at first glance. It is a new dimension in reprography. In conjunction with large-scale printers, the WideTEK® 36ART-600 scanner provides the perfect basis for professional art reproduction with maximum color precision.

The WideTEK® 36ART digitalizes works of art such as oil and acrylic paintings, watercolors, charcoal and pastel drawings, collages, and antique works of art using a method that is completely contact-free. As such, it is even possible to digitalize paintings that are not fully dry. The scanner can accommodate formats measuring up to 914 x 1524 mm, creating high-resolution, brilliant images of the finest quality in a way that preserves the works of art.
