Scanning Superiority One Touch Scanning
This professional scanner meets all your wide-format scanning needs with high-quality grayscale, crisp, clear black-and-white and photo-realistic colors.

The SP-HD742 sets new standards for large format scanning speeds, scanning a full E-size (A0) drawing at 400 dpi turbo in only 5 seconds.

An image depends on its many graytones to bring out details and give it depth. On the SP-HD742 graytones are captured at 16 bits for maximum precision, passing the best 8 bits of graytone data to the computer. For color scanning, perfect color fidelity is ensured by capturing 48 bits of color data and passing the best 24 bits to the computer.

The SP-HD742 uses All-Digital cameras with advanced point-of-origin capture and on-board digital conversion ensuring minimum noise and an extended dynamic range. The scanner’s unique four-linear CCD technology, with a special panchromatic line, ensures that no colors are lost when scanning monochrome.

Quality color matched fluorescent lamps ensure the market’s highest standards for color correctness. The SP-HD742 can scan up to 0.6-inch (15mm.) thick originals such as drawings, maps and posters mounted on foam boards, gatorboards etc.


The SP-HD742's operator’s panel is designed with convenient programmable action buttons for initiating common tasks directly from the scanner. Each button immediately activates a scan and opens the image in an appropriate application and format. The scanner comes with action buttons for scanning, copying and e-mailing loaded originals and can be reconfigured for other tasks.

Care for your original
The Calcomp All-Wheel-Drive with contour adjustment and precision rollers ensures a perfectly straight scanning path without using unnecessary force so you avoid both image distortion and damage to your customer’s fragile originals.

Dual shared axels synchronize roller movement to ensure a straight and stable scan path. Suspension components apply pressure evenly across the whole width of the document for an optimal yet delicate hold. The roller’s soft-friction contact surface adds the final touch to a system that cares for your original and for your scan results.

Precision Color Automatic Scanner Maintenance
A new large format scanner may come calibrated from the factory, but as time goes by, components and lamps will change character and affect color output.  The unique Precision Color system lets you maintain perfect color results by harmonizing current scanning factors. You can calibrate in the field, at any time, so you are always ensured stable and predictable color output. The SP-HD742 scanner incorporates the 3C Auto-Maintenance system that keeps your cameras perfectly aligned, adjusted and calibrated for optimal image quality. The process is automatic just insert the maintenance sheet and click the wizard’s start button.

The 3C Auto-Maintenance system aligns and stitches your cameras to a fraction of a pixel giving the highest wide format image precision available. Basic-Calibration sets black-and-white points on each individual pixel and ensures linearity in both highlight and shadow areas giving noise-free and stable scans at all resolutions. Precision Color calibration completes the 3C Auto-maintenance system process.

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 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.

Accurate Lens Enhancement Technology (ALE)
With this scanner, GIS professionals, CAD and other specialized markets receive a very high grade of precision stability in the scanned image. The patented ALE technology has taken precision scanning to new levels. The ALE  technology maintains a 0.1% +- pixel precision across any two points of the scan line thus exceeding even the most rigid requirements in the industry today
