Costa Mesa, CA – November 11, 2014 – Paradigm Imaging Group, a leading distributor of large format scanning and printing solutions is adding to its flatbed scanner portfolio with the WideTEK 12 flatbed scanner from Image Access and will offer it to its network of resellers throughout North America.

A Smaller Model With All The Features and the Same High Speed as its Big Brother Image Access’ WideTEK 12 flatbed scanner has all the features and high scanning speed of the WideTEK 25 in a smaller A3+ model at a highly competitive price. The WideTEK 12 scans the full bed (19% more than A3, 12.5 x 18.5”) at 300dpi color in less than 3 seconds, twice as fast as the closest competition. The revolutionary 3D scanning mode opens new opportunities in printing and industrial inspection markets. 3D scanning captures the texture of surfaces so perfectly that the scan on a screen looks like the real thing.
The Scan2Net platform is the technological foundation of all WideTEK scanners from Image Access. It replaces the proprietary scanner drivers and software that traditional scanners require with the fastest common, nonproprietary inter-device connection available: TCP/IP, over Ethernet. With network interface speeds much higher than USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 scanners, Scan2Net devices are able to reach unrivaled performance at extremely low connectivity cost. Scan2Net scanners feature a 64bit Linux based operating system, dedicated to scanner specific imaging and mechanical control tasks, maximizing scanning speeds and performance.
