SilverFast goes universal - SilverFast 6.5.5 is the only software which now supports the entire range of Linotype Hell / Heidelberg High End scanners, like Chromograph 3300/3400, Topaz, Nexscan, Tango/XL and Primescan on the most modern operating system Mac OS-X TIGER (10.4) as well as for the announced Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard).
The fully automatic IT8 calibration, the automatic rotation, Adobe Photoshop CS3 compatibility as well as the increased processing speed, are just a few of SilverFast’s top new highlights.
Der Spiegel, Germany’s leading news magazine located in Hamburg, uses the combination of SilverFast Ai Studio and SilverFast HDR Studio to drive its High End scanners, Heidelberg Nexscan.
“SilverFast allows us to finally use the latest Macs with Intel Processors” says Reinhard Wilms, editorial technician at Der Spiegel. LaserSoft Imaging, provides FireWire support for Linotype Hell/Heidelberg High End scanners and assists in setting up of the CMS workflow at customers. For all customers that use desktop or film scanners for processing analogue photos, films or negatives the new SilverFast feature Multi-Exposure offers a unique additional functionality by vastly increasing the details of their images; especially in the shadow areas but even the highlights of the image are enhanced. Unlike conventional Multi-Sampling, merely reducing noise, SilverFast Multi-Exposure scans the original image with different exposures, dramatically increasing the dynamic range.
At present, LaserSoft Imaging supports over 350 current scanner models. Furthermore, SilverFast is also available for digital cameras and printers. SilverFast V6.5.5 runs natively on the new Intel and power PC based Mac computers.
