Océ Color Image Logic Large Format Printing & Scanning Technology - Canon Solutions America

Improve Image Quality with Océ Color Image Logic Large Format Scanning & Copying Technology

Too often print professionals settle for average quality copies and scans. With Océ Image Logic scanning and copying technology, you’ll never have to settle again. Included with Canon Solutions America’s (CSA) wide format scanners, such as the Océ PlotWave 900 monochrome scanner and the Océ TC4 and TC4XT color scanners, Océ Image Logic uses state-of-the-art technology to turn imperfect originals into high quality copies and scans the first time. Save time and money while increasing productivity and reducing wasted media with Océ Color Image Logic Technology.

How the Scanning Technology Works

Océ Image Logic technology was developed with the goal that all originals should be scanned and copied right the first time, without operator intervention, to create a high quality end product. If your original photo, document or drawing is in less than ideal shape, Océ Image Logic creates a perfect reproduction by following these steps:

  1. Scan the Original - The original document is fed into the scanner and each image line is converted on a scale of 0-255. This generates the 256 grey scale image.
  2. Adjust the Background - The document’s background is eliminated by raising pixel values based on the detected background level. All background levels are then set to the same grey level and are adjusted throughout the page, resulting in a background-less image.
  3. Image Enhancing - Imperfect details are digitally enhanced through advanced filtering. For example, fine pencil lines are boosted and shaded areas are smoothed in the filtering process.
  4. Half-Toning - The grey scale image is converted into a black and white image via the error diffusion technique. Every pixel in the document is processed, resulting in weak lines, solids and text becoming sharply defined and filled. The image is now finalized and is ready to be printed.

Benefits of Océ Color Image Logic Scan Technology

Printing professionals will agree that scanning and copying are two of the most time consuming large format reproduction tasks. As users must physically feed the original document into the scanner, it can take a significant amount of time for the first scan, and even more time if the result wasn’t satisfactory. Multiple scans and copies cause reproduction costs to skyrocket, and take more of the user’s time. However Océ Image Logic helps with these common scanning problems:

  • Scan and copy more documents in less time
  • Less wasted media
  • Increase operator productivity
  • Little usage of memory
  • High quality scans and copies with minimal operator intervention
  • Every pixel of every line is enhanced
