3C - Maintenance System
|The Calcomp 3C
Maintenance system is designed to help you keep your cameras perfectly
aligned, adjusted and calibrated for optimal image quality. Regular
scanner maintenance is a sure way to minimize costly downtime.
Scanner Maintenance, with the Scanner Maintenance Kit, is very easy to perform and most of it is completely automatic.
Easy to use tools for scanner maintenance, including alignment and calibration charts are supplied with Calcomp scanners. A Scanner Maintenance CD-ROM contains wizards that check the scanner and guide users through the steps for perfect scanner camera alignment, stitching and calibration. The Scanner Maintenance software and the scanner hardware work together to evaluate camera alignment on your scanner and help you make the corrections necessary for perfect alignment (height and stitching) on your cameras to a fraction of a pixel giving the market's highest wide format image precision.
After Camera alignment, the program goes straight to Basic (black and white point) and Color Calibration. You don't have to insert extra sheets or find camera positions on the scanner. The Maintenance program detects the scanner model and makes all the necessary calculations on its own. Easy and fast scanner calibration means that your scanner never suffers degradation, as is the case with other scanner devices with complicated or missing calibration support. The scanner's Precision Color system lets you calibrate on the field at any time ensuring stabile and predictable color output. The scanner is calibrated to both sRGB and NTSC color spaces using an ANSI IT8 calibration target.
Once the scanner has been fine-tuned, it performs a number of basic tasks on its own, removing those tedious chores required with other scanner systems. Using patented Calcomp technology, camera stitching and black-white-points are constantly monitored and corrected while your scanner is running. Calcomp scanners are designed to let you concentrate on your work and take optimal scanner performance for granted.

The tools for
scanner maintenance are supplied with each Calcomp scanner.
|Your Maintenance Kit includes a single maintenance sheet that is used by the scanner for perfect alignment, stitching, basic and color calibration. The sheet comes with a hard opaque cardboard storage cover that protects it from smudges, creases and fading from light.|
Maintenance Instruction poster gives users a step-by-step recipe for
correct scanner maintenance. It is logically divided into the
maintenance functions and each step is illustrated and supported by
straightforward texts. The poster is printed on high-quality cardboard
for durability and it is perfect for hanging on the wall near the

|The Scanner Maintenance program is delivered on a CD-ROM with the scanner. The program checks your scanner and guides you through the steps for perfect scanner camera alignment, stitching and calibration. Many of the tasks are completely automatic, so the user only needs to start the process and verify the wizard's progress.|
