CeBIT is Once Again Platform for Introduction of New Crowley Company Scan Systems
Frederick, Md. – Once again, The Crowley Company will use CeBIT, the world’s largest trade fair showcasing digital IT and telecommunications solutions for home and work environments, as the platform for the international debut of new scan and imaging systems.
This year the company will introduce a brand new archive scanner from EPM Equipment’s IMAGELINK brand, thei7380 reference archive scanner. The successor to KODAK’s popular i7300, the IMAGELINK i7380 scanner, manufactured by Crowley, reverses the inefficient aspects of traditional microfilm retrieval by offering quick view times, multiple output/delivery options and even more work-saving functionality. The IMAGELINK i7380 Scanner Application Software interface goes beyond other 16mm film scanning products, offering complete connectivity with various database systems via the database connector option, local and wide area network integration, optional batch scanning for large quantities of images and consistently fast and accurate digital image retrieval.
Also new to the market and being displayed for the first time internationally is Crowley’s UTrieve Universal Digital Retrieval System, designed by the firm’s Wicks and Wilson division. This software system allows users to access their previously scanned strip film or other microform in their original format at the touch of a button from a desktop, laptop, tablet or smart phone. Using patented technology that draws from Crowley’s industry-leading Wicks and Wilson and Mekel Technology manufactured brands, UTrieve operates from a cross-brand platform that allows owners of images scanned from either brand to view, print, save or send images from their workstation, home or road.
Working from three key components – access to film repositories, an indexed database and the UTrieve software – UTrieve maximizes initial capture investment by offering maximum image exposure to a network, client or patron base.
Notes Christopher Crowley, president of The Crowley Company, “The value of debuting new capture systems at CeBIT is immeasurable for reaching our growing international market base. The global reach of CeBIT offers a smart venue to introduce products that we manufacture and sell worldwide and also allows us to simultaneously meet face-to-face with many of the resellers in our network that we don’t have the opportunity to see personally on a regular basis because of geography.”
Also available for demonstration in the company’s booth will be the following scanners:
- Mekel MACH 12 and Wicks and Wilson 8850 microfilm scanners. Manufactured by Crowley’s Mekel Technology and Wicks and Wilson divisions respectively, these high-speed, high image quality production scanners are staples throughout the world in high-volume and archival settings.
- MACH 7 and Wicks and Wilson 7750 microfiche scanners. Both are world leaders for their image quality and throughput in high-volume and archival settings as well.
- Wicks and Wilson C400 aperture card scanner, the most popular of the C-Series aperture card scanners
- Crowley’s UScan+ Universal Film scanner, the latest generation in multi-form scanning. The UScan+ is also sold worldwide under the Mekel MACH2+, the Zeutschel delta+ and the Genus Ozaphan+. It has also recently been selected to be a reseller product of Konica Minolta Business Systems U.S.A.
- Zeutschel simple-to-use zeta patron book copy system
- InoTec high-volume, low-maintenance document scanners
The Crowley Company will exhibit in Hall 3, Stand G30.
