PromptSCAN 
M2

Overview

The M2 version comes as a desktop device with the option to use manual or automatic feed of film rolls. The powerful camera array is equipped with high resolution industrial cameras with a pixel size up to 13 μm.

High precision camera array, sensors and lenses

The M3 uses an array of high precision industrial cameras, sensors and lenses. It accurately captures aerial images with a resolution of 13 μm (pixel size, native).

Downholder plate

Our downholder glass plates are manufactured to the highest quality standards. The high grade of flateness of the glass provides an almost perfect suppression of Newton's rings.
Four automated raisers lift the plate during every transport movement of the film.

Panchromatic or Color

All PromptSCAN machines provide the full range of scanning modes. M2 uses mono cameras and a changing light source to enable full color resolution and maximum dynamic range. The high dynamic range and separate colors also enables accurate capture of red-based negative films.
Automated exposure control means you do not need to make any manual adjustments.

Automatic film transport

The M2 is equipped with a motorized system to automatically move the film forward from frame to frame and enable automated scanning.
This is achieved realized using high precision stepper motors and optical sensors.

Low vibrations

We are using uniquely designed tension motors to reduce most of vibrations caused by the transport system to guarantee an almost oscillation-free and smooth operation.

Optional manual film transport

The M2 also provides a simple manual transport solution for film rolls like the M1. For some films it is just easier to check and scan manually but still at high speed.

Quick control of parameters

The 7" easy to use and adjustable touch screen allows you to control the loading and movement of the film.

* Defines the rate to capture each frame of a film including exposure, image download and film transportation when using automated film transport on standard aerial film with standard spacing between frames and minimal changes in auto exposure. Irregular frame spacing, film splicing or need for many varied exposures can affect times.
