Imacon Highlights Technology Breakthroughs in 2001
Press release from the issuing company
NEW YORK, November 1, 2001 – There have been more groundbreaking products introduced by Imacon during the last ten months than ever before in the company’s history culminating in the launch today of the Flextight 848 scanner. The launches are the result of years of research and development, and build upon previous technology breakthroughs as well as the experience gained from having thousands of customers around the world operating Imacon equipment.
"The year started with the introduction of the FlexFrame 3020 digital camera back, which was a major landmark for us and the industry," said Imacon founder Christian Poulsen. "Our software and hardware experts at Imacon’s headquarters in Copenhagen had spent the previous 12 months developing the technology we inherited when we took over fellow Danish manufacturer ColorCrisp. The result is a digital camera back that is unique within the photographic sector.
"Since the launch in January 2001, we’ve continued to improve the FlexFrame 3020 and in November we are introducing several additional features, all of which are available as software upgrades. During the summer we announced the impending introduction of the FlexFrame 4040, and are delighted to be able to demonstrate a model today," Poulsen continued. "Shipping of the new FlexFrame 4040 will begin in December and customers operating the FlexFrame 3020 have the option of a straightforward upgrade."
