Venlo, the Netherlands, 5 December 2005—Océ introduces the new Océ TDS450 wide format print, copy and scan system with outstanding productive handling of black & white documents, plus the freedom to add colour scan capability.
With the Océ TDS450 market introduction, Océ is proud to introduce its latest technology the patented Océ Direct Scan optical system allows breakthrough levels of quality and reliability to be achieved.
New optical system with Direct Scan technology
The outstanding image quality of the Océ TDS450 is ensured by a single high-resolution 600 dpi colour CCD camera and specially developed high quality lens. The result is a uniform, stable, sharp and accurate image in both black & white and colour. Also contributing to the system’s outstanding image quality is the lamp used to illuminate the original. Based on the latest lighting technologies, the lamp offers an exceptional colour spectrum and a highly stable light intensity over long periods of operation, all without requiring warming-up time.
Single mirror, single camera optical system
The reliability of the optical system lies in its single mirror, single camera concept. In multiple-user environments where systems are often subject to tough handling, this concept virtually eliminates the risk of image distortion or misalignment by reducing the number of moving parts to a minimum.
Proven Océ Image Logic technology now extended to colour
In addition, the patented Océ Image Logic technology—already proven in black & white systems—has now been extended to colour in the Océ TDS450 scanner. This ensures faithful reproduction of all kinds of originals, both black & white and colour, whether multitone images like illustrations and photos or CAD drawings with fine line details.
Simplicity of operation means maximum operator convenience
The Océ TDS450 scanner also stands out for its simplicity of operation, which ensures maximum convenience for the operator. First of all feeding of originals is extremely simple, with no need for accurate manual alignment of documents. The fully digital automatic width detection is precise to the millimetre, contributing to flawless copying and scanning. Secondly, the innovative display panel inspired by the technology of today’s palmtop devices and modern ergonomics is very intuitive and directly accessible to every operator, including wheelchair users. The user interface is fully customisable, using preprogrammed templates that enable users to perform more complex jobs at the touch of a single button.
Workgroup printing of all black & white documents
However the Océ TDS450 is more than just a scanner. This complete system allows workgroups to print all their black & white wide format documents. Supported by regularly updated and certified drivers and software applications, the Océ TDS450 is easy to integrate and will smoothly improve users’ document workflows.
Standard B/W system with optional full-colour scan-to-file
The Océ TDS450 is available as standard as a black & white printing system, with the option to expand the system with a full-colour scan-to-file capability, underlining the ‘Ready for colour’ slogan that Océ uses for the system.
