Enhanced from ArtixScan M1, the ArtixScan M2 captures sharp, astonishing and detailed images more faster. With 4800-dpi optical CCD and the Auto Focus technology, it enables users to focus on a specific area on scanned reflective or films and to get more sharper image. Only Microtek provides the Emulsion Direct Image Technology (E.D.I.T.) for distortion-free glassless film scanning, efficiently eliminating any of problems associated with normal glass transparency scanning such as Newton rings and surface imperfection.

Microtek Bio-5000 Plus

Auto Focus scan head delivers accurate scanning results.
This feature allows the scanner to adjust the focus position on images through the movement of the CCD, resulting in better image quality for a chosen area of the target, which can especially be best seen when used with uneven, creased photos and film.

Twin scanbed with patented Emulsion Direct Imaging Technology (E.D.I.T.).

This is a patented “glassless” scanning system built into the lower bay of Microtek’s dual media scanners, allowing the scanner CCD to directly read the emulsion side of the film during scanning without any interfering pane of glass. This effectively eliminates problems associated with normal glass transparency scanning like Newton Rings, resulting in distortion-free images.

Built-in film scanner with Snap Trans™ holders.

The ArtixScan M2 is a built-in film scanner with a separate moving light source that allows you to scan film and transparencies up to 8.5” x 10”. Included exclusive Snap Trans™ film holders accommodate 35mm slides, 35mm filmstrips, 4” x 5” film, and medium format film up to 6 x 17-cm panoramic. The 4” x 5”and medium format film holders are specially designed with spring actuated tension grips that hold the film perfectly flat, ensuring consistent scan results and yielding sharper image quality.

Energy-saving LED light source.
Adopting LEDs as the light source, when the scanner is detected by the system, there is no need to warm up before carrying out the scan, which boots your productivity and reduces energy costs amazingly. With its stable performance, the image quality will remain consistent even after used for a certain period of time.
ScanWizard™ Pro scanning software ( PC Only).
This is an advanced scanner controller program that provides many powerful, professional-level features for scanning. ScanWizard Pro features two color spaces, allowing users to work in the Native CMYK / RGB mode, as well as in the intuitive LCH (Lightness, Chroma, Hue) mode.
Auto Dynamic Range
