FX Digital Scanning Back : With scanning resolutions
up to an amazing 10,500 x 12,600 pixels. I capture every last
detail of your artwork. At 416 Megapixels, It's the World's
Highest Resolution Digital Scanning Camera. A digital art
scan with the PhaseOne FX system will satisfy even the most
Pure Digital Master: Film processing, film color balance,
and variables that can be introduced during the film scanning
process can all degrade the quality of the final image file.
A pure digital art scan from the PhaseOne FX scanning back eliminate
the extra steps of scanning traditional 4x5 film. Your artwork
is captured as a pure digital master. ( High
- Definition Samples.)
Capture System : My studio is equipped with a Sinar
X 4 x 5 precision view camera that is mated with the PhaseOne
FX high resolution digital scanning back, and North Light HID
sports the latest technology. There are no disappointments,
only pleasant surprises. This is technology at its very best.
Whenever possible, I prefer to handle art scanning in my california
studio with my digital system built around the PhaseOne FX high-resolution
4 x 5 digital camera scanning back. Considered by museums like
the Museum of Modern Art to be the finest technology available
for capturing priceless works of art.
PhaseOne FX scanning back can digitally capture the most subtle
details without the extra step of shooting and processing film.
Artwork in sizes up to 5' x 7' are mounted on my grand format
copy system and expertly lit with
the North Light HID Copy Lights.
and Cross Polarization Lighting
: Oil paintings in particular have structure, brushstrokes
and depth to the paint. If not expertly lit and captured professionally,
there is little chance the Giclée will resemble the original
artwork. For those of you who have had professional transparencies
or slides made of artwork with reflective surfaces, you've undoubtedly
noticed thousands of dots of reflected light.
using asymmetrical and cross polarization lighting, I
capture the original texture in your fine art,
using polarized material over my special
North Light HID
and then a polarizing filter on the lens, I cancel the effect
of the sparkles and capture the full color depth and values
of the artwork.
setup requires very powerful lights to adjust for the polarizing
filtration from both sources. The result is actually better
than you can see the artwork in real life display situations.
North Light HID 900 Copy Light System is specially designed
for Fine Art Reproduction.
In addition to low operating temperatures these high intensity
lights have low ultraviolet and infrared levels so your artwork
is safe. These lights meet Museum Standards for Conservation.
The capturing process
includes a (Gretag Macbeth Colorchecker chart ) along with the
original art. This is a key component for color accuracy
The chart provides a set of known reference colors which can
then be used as an adjustment standard.
When I capture your original artwork, I use a sophisticated
laser sighting and optical tool, to ensure that the art surface
is exactly parallel to the camera scanning back. Even the focusing
process is done with digital feedback to guarantee perfect detail.
Large and Small : I can capture art pieces as large
as 5 feet by 7 feet in a single scan. Even larger art can be
scanned by capturing it in sections and then stitching them
together using special software. Artwork as small as 4" across
can be scanned with lots of detail to allow for dramatic enlargements.
Quality : Ultimately, the best reason to use the "PhaseOne
FX" system is for its uncompromising quality. There is no such
thing as film grain. Colors that are missed and subtleties that
are lost with film are all picked up using the "PhaseOne FX"
system. The art scans are breathtaking and leave you shaking
your head in amazement.
