The SupraScan™ Quartz A0 HD benefits at glance:

The SupraScan™ Quartz A0 HD scanner has been developed to achieve the highest level of benefits. Those benefits are focused on:

As part of i2S Group internationally well-known in industrial vision, i2s DigiBook has a high level of knowledge in image technologies mastering perfectly sensor, optics, electronics, lighting and image processing technologies. This is why, the SupraScan™ Quartz A0 HD scanner reach the highest level of image quality in terms of resolution efficiency, color rendering, noise and is compliant with the international FADGI and Metamorfoze Preservation Imaging Guidelines.

The SupraScan™ Quartz A0 HD scanner has been developed to reach the highest level of image quality but with no compromise on speed and productivity. With high quality camera components, powerful server, optimised scan sequence and saving process, the SupraScan™ Quartz A0 HD scanner offers a very good level of productivity at that level of image quality.

All aspects have been studied to maximise operators’ productivity and comfort. This why the command panel location, the scan process, the lighting configuration, the automatic functions and the easy to use software interface offer the best conditions making the SupraScan™ Quartz A0 HD scanner an easy and powerful scanner to use day after day.

With many options like book cradle (25 or 50 cm), V-shape cradle, assisted glass plate, lighting table, vacuum table, the SupraScan™ Quartz A0 HD scanner allows to digitise various type of documents from various quality and sizes: books, maps, registers, paintings, negatives, etc.


With a chain of design, conception and manufacture driven by high quality guidelines, all SupraScan™ Quartz A0 HD scanner are particularly robust and reliable. This is why, since 2005 more than 500 SupraScan™ are operating successfully for nearly 380 customers worldwide as libraries, archives, universities, town halls as well as service providers. Some of them are working in two shifts of 8 hours without any trouble. The i2S group quality management is certified by the international standard NF EN ISO 9001.

The conception of the SupraScan™ Quartz A0 HD scanner has taken into account the use of very fragile documents. This is why the scanning plate access, the glass pressure, the book cradle, the light technology are optimised to respect and minimise the contact with the documents.

The new camera Quartz HD 

  • The new CCD camera offers a 600 x 600 dpi optical resolution on A0 format, up to 800 x 800 dpi on A1 and 1000 x 1000 dpi on A2.
  • Resolution efficiency is up to 9 lp / mm at 600 x 600 dpi
  • Images are compliant with FADGI and Metamorfoze image quality guidelines.
  • Focus is motorised and automatic.
  • Scan time is less than 22,5s for an A0 scan at 400 x 400 dpi optical.
  • No image distortion: distance and angle between the camera and the document is fixed and the camera is always perpendicular to the document.

The lighting system

  • Relief enhancement system.
  • Lighting below the operator’s eyes level.


The SupraScan™ Quartz A0 HD has the ability to digitise using only one lateral light (right or left). This exclusive feature allows you to enhance the relief of documents or objects and give a better value to your images.
