Initially billed somewhat enigmatically as a "world première - the best of two worlds", the cat was finally let out of the bag when Tübingen-based Zeutschel GmbH in collaboration with PhaseOne unveiled the innovative Zeutschel ScanStudio to the wide audience of visitors at CeBIT 2017 in Hannover. "The Zeutschel ScanStudio shows what happens when two world market leaders - Zeutschel with book scanners and PhaseOne with medium-format digital cameras - merge their skills and expertise," says Jörg Vogler, Managing Director at Zeutschel. Peter Nielsen, Market Manager for Cultural Heritage Market at PhaseOne, adds: "We are pleased to have found a partner who shares the same high standards in terms of quality and flexibility in the cultural heritage market. Together, we have achieved a milestone in repro solutions in the shortest possible development time. We are all proud of that."
Having specialized up till now in cultural heritage solutions for books and other valuable bound documents, Zeutschel is now in a position to expand its digitalization solutions and open up new markets through its collaboration with PhaseOne. The ScanStudio consists of a camera system with a PhaseOne digital back, interchangeable lenses, special LED illumination and a range of copyboard systems. It is designed for digitalizing a wide variety of film formats, slides, glass negatives, stamps and coins, as well as books and large-format documents. The cooperation agreement will also see PhaseOne taking over exclusive distribution of the new digitalization system in North America.
