IQ Flex 24 Inch flatbed features

Creativity and productivity without compromise

The large flatbed surface, fast scanning speeds and ultraflexible design makes the Contex IQ Flex the perfect solution for the demanding user. Protect fragile originals by placing them gently on the scanner bed or utilize the flexibility to scan books, textile, wood, original artwork or anything you would like to transform into digital content. The IQ Flex is the most flexible A2/C-size flatbed in the market.

More Possibilities
Touch screen close up view

Operate from the touch panel or install the Nextimage software and run it from a remote PC.

Flexible design means endless opportunities

Combine materials like never before. You can place anything on the scanner bed and let the IQ Flex do the scanning. The IQ Flex supports scanning any shape or size and can be used to scan original artwork, create product catalogs or make digital archives of your most fragile originals.

When the image is a shape – light is the solution

Shadows are normally unwanted when scanning originals with folds and other shapes. The iFLEX scanner has ultra-bright LED light that best emulates natural light in a flatbed design and eliminates unwanted shadows in your originals. When scanning shapes, like brail, carvings or plants, the light source is carefully designed to capture the shadows that make up the shapes of the objects. We call this Natural Light.

Quality is a brand promise

The IQ Flex’s high color fidelity can be delivered in Adobe RGB, Device RGB, sRGB or even RAW RGB in full 48-bit color. The IQ Flex uses CIS Contex CleanScanPlus

Up to A1/D-size originals

A simple guide in Nextimage will help scanning documents twice the size of the scan bed. Simply place the documents and follow the guide. This truely makes the IQ Flex an A1 scanner in a A2 size.
