The challenge

One of the tasks at amana, a company that produces visual advertising, is to take material from reference books and incorporate it into proposals and other documents, which was work that required leaving one’s desk and having to carry large books and lay them out by hand. In addition, a lot of time was taken up with revising or hand-coloring the storyboards used for video direction.

The solution

The SV600 contactless scanner can be installed on a desk and used within hand’s reach to perform on-the-spot scans. Even in the case of heavy reference books, the document merely needs to be placed under the scanner and the pages turned. Furthermore, it can be used to scan hand-drawn sketches from storyboards so that they can be processed digitally and undergo editing, such as coloring, on a PC.

The benefits

  • Stress-free production environment
  • Faster preparation of proposals and storyboards
  • More efficient archiving and retrieval of business cards
