Art reproduction with HD Apeiron/42

scanner test, case study  

Excelling color accuracy while saving days of work.

"Contex HD Apeiron/42 color art scanner will save us hours, if not days," was the conclusion from John Rush, owner of Rush Digital Printing in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Watch an interview with John Rush, who visited Contex to see the HD Apeiron/42 contact free art scanner first-hand and to learn if it would be useful for his business with reproduction of fine art.


The current workflow of Rush Digital Printing does not involve the customer in the production process, which can make every feedback step a long wait and eventually prolong the delivery. With HD Apeiron/42 in the shop, John Rush sees a possibility for a much-improved workflow that more likely will get it right the first time. This includes letting the artist be a part of the scanning process.

A close match between original and copy is the key to success in the fine art reproduction business.

The software for HD Apeiron/42, Nextimage Apeiron, includes a closed loop calibration (CLC), a Contex technology that matches the scanned image with any paper on any printer.

The 3D effect of the scanner let users fine-tune the detail of the texture in real time.

HD Apeiron/42 art scanner has lots of potential to speed up any existing workflow while continuously ensuring a perfect color match.

"It would streamline our entire workflow and save us hours, if not days. But mostly it will improve our detail and ultimately the product that we put out at the other end is going to be improved," clarifies John Rush.
