The Special Case: Fine Art Print Reproductions

When making fine art prints, it is unimportant if the original is historical or modern. These frequently large format originals require high pixel resolution to capture the finest details and superior color management to produce an accurate facsimile. The 48-Bit workflow of the DiRECT camera system provides all of the tools and controls to achieve these perfect reproductions. Read more…

Science and Research

Many scientific applications share the highest digitization requirements of cultural assets, expecting that a scan accurately records the very finest details of the original. Materials such as metal surfaces make special demands on the image detail that a Rencay DiRECT camera system can provide. Read more…

Technology Comparison:
Trilinear true RGB 48Bit vs. Bayer RGB

The trilinear Rencay scan provides full RGB color information with 48-Bit color depth for each individual pixel. This technology produces very high image resolutions up to 2808 Mpixels.

Depending on the application, a lower resolution in the range of 78 to 2808 Mpixels can be selected (e.g. for higher throughput with faster scans and smaller files). The image quality achieved will exceed that of other capture systems because the image is from pure RGB data.

Conventional one-shot digital camera systems typically use a Bayer matrix sensor. These are monochrome sensors with a Bayer filter pattern applied. Each pixel records only one color — 50% of the pixels are green-sensitive, 25% red-sensitive and 25% blue-sensitive. To create a full color image the Bayer raw data has to be interpolated or “developed” with complex algorithms.
