NEW YORK, November 1, 2001 – Imacon has renamed its award winning ColorFlex software as FlexColor and introduced a new version - 3.1. The new name brings this exciting new software package into line with Imacon's 'Flex' brand of products (Flextight and FlexFrame), allowing customers to instantly recognize the Imacon brand and the quality and innovation it has come to represent.
"We achieved a major technical breakthrough when we developed software that provides a common platform for both scanner and digital camera back," said joint managing director Christian Poulsen. "The production and quality benefits for the user are enormous, and Imacon remains unique in providing software that can be used with both technologies in this way.
"Users can move easily from scanner to camera back operation or vice versa," continued Poulsen. "Eventually we see photographers having both devices in their production suite, providing them with the best tools for every task. They already have the flexibility to shoot film and scan the results or shoot digitally."
Beta tests have been completed and FlexColor 3.1 is now available for use on
Macintosh platforms. A PC version will be launched at the beginning of 2002. Customers can download the software from the Imacon website.
New features available for use with both scanner and camera include the ability to rotate or scroll the preview image, and a preview grid for alignment. There is a color information box with up to five user-definable points, plus improved levels and curves tools.
