Press Release: Contex [October 15, 2015]

Rockville, MD -- October 15, 2015 -- Contex, the world's leader of wide format scanning and imaging solutions, today announces the success of the SD One, the market's first wide format scanner designed for desktop convenience. Released in February, the SD One has significantly exceeded U.S sales expectations, affirming the company's decision to enter the convenience scanning market. The SD One is the only professional-grade wide format scanner made specifically for capturing oversized engineering and construction drawings. The scanner has been adopted by new and existing customers worldwide, with the greatest concentration in the U.S. The company reports that out of all the U.S. installations of the SD One scanner, not a single call was made for technical assistance -- a testament to its efficient design and ease of use.

"The Contex SD One is doing well in the market, and has filled a need for many of our new and existing customers," comments Steve Blanken, General Manager, Contex Americas. "The SD One is just another example of how Contex continues to innovate in wide format scanning."

"Our customers have varying demands for capturing wide format documents. The SD One gives them the opportunity to put a scanner where there wasn't one, and helps them to become more productive. We've received very positive feedback for the scanner," comments Rich Gigl, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, National Azon, a national distributor of wide format scanning solutions.

Contex customers are turning to the SD One to eliminate the need to outsource the scanning function, saving considerable resources. Easily transportable, the scanner gives users the flexibility to place it where it's needed. Users can capture changes to drawings and other documents as they occur, with date and time stamping. The SD One comes with built-in cloud connectivity, enabling users to scan and upload their wide format documents to Google Drive, Dropbox,, or Microsoft OneDrive.

ENERGY STAR certified, the SD One scans 24- and 36-inch hard copy documents up to 600 dpi. The scanner comes with Nextimage FREE and Nextimage TWAIN, and includes such features as automatic file naming and automatic image quality for instant cleanup and alignment of scanned documents. Scanned images can be saved to JPG, TIF, PDF and PDF/A.
