St. Ives, Cambridge, UK 13th January 2006

Colortrac unit sales grew by 60% in 2005. Can they do better in 2006 with the NEW SmartLF Cx 40? In September 2004 Colortrac launched the SmartLF 4080 range of wide format scanners and rapidly established itself as the world-wide market leader for CIS (contact image sensor) scanners. Last year, SmartLF 4080 was the driving force, creating new markets for large format scanners and Colortrac achieved 60% unit sales growth year-on-year.

January 2006 sees the launch of the 4080's successor - SmartLF Cx 40.
This brand new wide format scanner looks very similar from the outside, retaining the 4080's compact and lightweight design, however, under the skin things are very different. New features for Cx 40 include; 600dpi optical resolution, 48-bit colour data capture and the advanced, 2+4 all-wheel-drive 'Active Paper Transport' (APT) system. Colortrac has adopted the dynamic normalisation application (DNA) used in its high-end CCD colour scanners that, combined with the 48-bit data sampling, improves the shadow and highlight details of images and provides far better tone recognition. With high scan speeds, and other detail product enhancements, the SmartLF Cx 40 is pushing the top of the wide format scanner features league, but retains its affordable price tag.

New scanner floor stand accessory options for the SmartLF Cx 40 include; a PC and Flat screen mounting kit to create an integrated 'scan/copy station' that improves scanner mobility and reduces the system footprint, a paper catch basket and a 'Universal Repro Stand' (URS). The URS is height adjustable allowing the scanner to be positioned above a large format inkjet printer in a multi-function copy / scan / print system.
The SmartLF Cx 40m monochrome model starts at just $7,500 and the top of the range colour express model is less than $10,000. Cx 40 provides a choice of 1 monochrome and 2 colour models, all represent great performance and excellent value for money. SmartLF Cx 40 wide format scanners start shipping throughout Europe in January 2006, with roll-out to North & South America and Asia planned for February and March.
Colortrac Managing Director Graham Tinn says, "SmartLF Cx 40 is the first in a sequence of major new Colortrac large format scanner product launches planned for the first half of 2006. Cx 40 is a worthy successor to the tremendously successful SmartLF 4080 scanners and is vital to our goal of expanding the market for wide format scanner applications."

Colortrac announced in December 2005 the formation of a new subsidiary manufacturing company in China, Colortrac Imaging Systems (Suzhou) Ltd. The new company will produce the major electro-mechanical assemblies of the SmartLF Cx 40 scanners before final assembly and QC at its factory near Cambridge UK.

KUALA LUMPUR: Syarikat E.J. Motiwalla launched a slew of survey, land mapping, engineering and road-design solutions from Carlson Software Inc of Maysville, Kentucky, into the local market last week. Its managing partner, Abuli Huseini Motiwala, said the products are targeted at government, civil engineering, road construction, geographic information system, and land survey sectors. The products are Carlson Survey 2006, Carlson Field 2006, Carlson Roads 2006, Carlson SurvCADD 2006, Carson SurvNET, Carlson SurvCADD GIS and Carlson SurvCE. “Survey 2006, Field 2006 and Roads 2006 come with a licensed AutoCAD engine, while SurvCADD runs within AutoCAD,” said Carlson Software Australia director, Michael Manning. That makes the products fully compatible with AutoCAD 2006, 2005 and 2004 drawings and avoids cumbersome DXF transfers, he said. As its name implies, Carlson Survey is a complete survey solution; Carlson Field is a data collection tool within AutoCAD which works with most brands of distance measurement and Global Positioning System equipment. Carlson Roads combines the pipe, sewer and road design capabilities from SurvCADD with the AutoCAD engine and can read and write in LandXML file formats for transfers of design data over the Internet. SurvCADD is an engineering and surveying software for design, construction and survey offices; SurvNET is a network least-squares program which automatically works out the mean of all horizontal and vertical angles including slope distances. SurvCADD GIS is an office software for complex GIS projects while SurvCE is a Windows CE-based data collection software for land survey professionals using real-tile GPS and distance measuring terminals like the Windows CE-based Carlson Explorer II handheld terminals running SurvCE. Some of these solutions run on laptops, allowing surveyors and engineers to design their maps and layouts in the field and to submit them directly to clients over cellular networks.
