    ALLEROED, Denmark, Oct. 1 /CNW/ - Contex and Vidar, a brand of Contex -
the world's leading wide format scanner manufacturer - today announced the
global availability of a new upgrade to Nextimage multi-function scanning and

creation in 8-bit color mode, Nextimage advances its position as the most

    "Offering software upgrades is another part of our overall plan to
achieve the highest levels of customer satisfaction and help our customers get
more value out of their existing solutions", says Niels Appel, Executive VP,
Sales and Marketing for Contex operations. "What drives software development
at Contex is making feature-rich and comprehensive software that is
easy-to-learn and easy-to-use for both occasional and advanced users.
Nextimage makes you more productive, straight out of the box."
    Along with Contex's professional scanners, Nextimage has been awarded
BERTL's Four and a Half Star "Outstanding" rating - higher than any other wide
format product reviewed by BERTL. Contex's Nextimage scanning software is,
"the best scanning software we have seen. Simple, logical, and easy to use,
yet it offers all the powerful features that you need in the scanning or
viewing process... a professional scanning tool."

    Connectivity, Productivity and Image Enhancement in One Package!

    Combined with Contex and VIDAR's SD Series and HD Series scanners,
Nextimage software seamlessly integrates into your office workflow whether you
are working in technical, GIS, copy and reprographics or other wide format
segments - it has never been so easy to get professional results - even for
new users.

    -   The new TWAIN driver lets you import images directly into your
        existing photo/imaging and/or EDM software, with all the image
        enhancing features of the Nextimage application.

    -   Scan-to-email is a new feature that enables scanning directly into
        your email application. One click attaches your scanned file to an
        email, ready to send to anyone, anywhere.

    -   By scanning to DWF file format, you can mark up and share hard-copy
        drawings with customers and colleagues using Autodesk applications.

    -   Improved 8-bit color scanning, with an auto-palette option that lets
        you automatically generate a palette from the existing 24-bit scan.
        Remove or highlight color information easily by merging, re-mapping,
        or deleting palette colors.

    -   Preview during scan, which gives you a rolling 1:1 view of your file
        as you scan so you don't have to wait to find out if you need to
        adjust resolution, sharpness, or color settings.

    -   One-click file validation, great for when you need to review files
        before a final save or if you want to save multiple versions of a
        single scan in different sizes or with different bit depth levels.
        After you scan, just click one button to check image quality, make
        adjustments, and save.

    -   Supported languages: Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German,
        Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Russian
