Key technologies in Contex IQ scanners
As the world’s largest developer and producer of wide format imaging solutions, Contex leads the market with innovative technology and advanced scan and copy software solutions. The IQ series of scanners utilizes a long list of key technologies unique to a Contex scanner.

i1 profiles from X-Rite
Using X-Rite generated profiles ensures the highest possible color accuracy for the demanding customers. X-Rite is the global leader in color science and technology.

Adobe RGB, Device RGB and sRGB
Contex IQ series scanners have several different options for color space. In addition to the common sRGB the IQ scanners also offers color spaces with wider gamut as preferred by color specialists.

Adobe RGB and Device RGB has a larger color gamut than sRGB, hereby allowing differences in very bright and saturated colors to be maintained in the file.

Contex Natural Light

IQ scanners use new CIS modules with dual diffusion. By using correct diffusion in IQ scanners you get the most natural light in any CIS scanner.


Natural light is diffused light that creates soft shadows
Single sided LED light traditionally causes hard shadows.
Dual sided LED light normally creates 2 hard shadows.
Contex New Dual
Diffusion CIS Modules
in IQ scanners
ensures the must
natural representation
of any image.

Live Matching of CIS modules

IQ scanners use new CIS modules with dual diffusion. By using correct diffusion in IQ scanners you get the most natural light in any CIS scanner.

New in IQ scanners: Live matching of CIS modules.

While scanning Contex Live Matching technology will monitor images and correct differences from one CIS module to the next. Without this there might be noticeable difference between CIS modules.

This unique technology is a key part of providing Market leading CIS solutions.

New CFR Technology
Contex innovative Color Fringe Removal has been further improved with the IQ scanners. Color fringe is a result of CIS scanners using flashing red, green and blue LED lights. This causes black lines and text to have colored edges especially when scanning at lower resolutions.

Thanks to Contex innovative thinking this effect has been completely removed in the IQ scanners with CFR.

Delivering 3 times the bandwidth of USB2, our unique Gigabit Ethernet implementation with xDTR2 is lightning fast and accelerates workflows even further via network sharing, where scans can be controlled from any computer.
