You could even say the company from Wuppertal has "perfectly replicated" the lead theme for d!conomy at CeBIT 2017 in Hannover - "Ideas and solutions for a digital world". This technology leader in the professional scanning systems segment came to Hannover to showcase its ideas and solutions for applying the latest possibilities and technologies to bring analog media up to speed in the digital world. Besides exhibiting the entire portfolio of renowned WideTEK products, including the new WideTEK 36CL-600, by far the fastest color CIS sheetfed scanner on the market, the scanning specialist brought along a world-first with its WideTEK 36ART.

The WideTEK 36ART has been specially developed for archiving and reproducing art work. To achieve this, the WideTEK 36ART is designed to scan oil and acrylic paintings, watercolors, charcoal and pastel drawings, collages and antique works up to a format of 914 x 1,524 millimeters and produce up to 600 dpi resolution without physical contact. This now enables any museum to digitize its art collection in pristine quality, with the option of publishing it in print or online or selling art posters. The WideTEK 36ART can also be used in tandem with large-format printers, such as those by HP, Canon or Epson, for offering professional art reproduction as a service. In this case, pre-installed printer drivers can produce prints with impressively high-quality color accuracy.
