"The Cruse scanner is the Rolls Royce of repro-stand scanner systems. This scanner is used by leading museums, by military, federal police agencies, research universities, by anyone who needs the absolute top quality digital image." - Dr. Nicholas Hellmuth, director, FLAAR

The cornerstone of digital archiving and reproduction is the high quality digitalization.

Digitalization of paintings, graphics, photos, old documents and maps has so far been really hard. The advantage of flatbed desktop scanners is high resolution, but their bottleneck is small size, and narrow sharpness. You can only read separate pages by pull-through scanners, besides pulling between the rollers can be dangerous – valuable archive pages can get stuck, creased or torn.

Modern digital repro-photography requires a specially equipped studio, and professional experience. Homogenous lighting, filtering reflections of oil-paints, and mapping of paint-layers or plasticity often means an irresolvable task for the photographer, or compromising for the customer. The scale of enlargement is often defined – or mostly limited – by the resolution of digital cameras or camera-backs.

The Cruse large fromat scanner was developed for digitalization of valuable artifacts, pieces of museum - or private collections, and various archives. Developers regarded quality requirements without compromises as their highest goal. Cruse scanner has become a determinative device in digitalization.
