Scanner Nikkor ED lens
The single most important element in the production of high-quality scans is the lens. As you would expect from a world leader in optical technology, Nikon has incorporated lenses of the highest quality in each of our film scanners. Compared to ordinary glass, our ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens elements are superior in edge-to-edge sharpness, definition and contrast, as well as colour registration, saturation and accuracy. No scanner manufacturer can match this level of optical performance.
Low-heat, high accuracy LED light source
Most competitors’s scanners use halogen or fluorescent lamps as light sources, but they require time to warm up and the heat they generate can cause damage to film. Nikon’s COOLSCAN series are the only scanners to employ LEDs as their source of light. LEDs are a stable, precise light source requiring neither maintenance nor warm-up time, and there’s no risk of your film suffering heat-related damage. LED illumination also assures stability in colour characteristics, which contributes to faithful reproduction.
Nikon Colour Management System
The Nikon Colour Management System, or Nikon CMS, provides consistently accurate reproduction of image data on monitors and in printouts. This powerful tool permits the manipulation of colours in the calibrated RGB colour spaces before the data are transferred to the host application. Profiles detailing the colour characteristics and the output device (monitor or printer) ensure high colour-accuracy in almost any operating environment. Each scanner in Nikon’s COOLSCAN lineup is compatible with ICC (International Colour Consortium) version 4 standards.
Digital ICE 4 Advanced (TM)
Nikon’s world-renowned optics and innovative lighting help to optimize the effectiveness of Digital ICE(4) Advanced™ components, making Nikon scanners and the automatic image correction technology an ideal match. The latest editions of Nikon’s COOLSCAN film scanners are the first ever to offer Digital ICE™, Digital ROC™, Digital GEM™ and Digital DEE™ all in one package. In addition to provide superb image correction, the power of these technologies also serve to improve the time- and cost-efficiency of your enterprise, regardless of scale.
