UMAX PowerLook 1100


Most users are perfectly content with an ultra-inexpensive flatbed scanner, but graphic artists and other professionals need high-quality, industrial-strength scans that require significantly superior hardware.

Product Specifications

The PowerLook 1100 is the first professional Mac and PC scanner dedicated for FireWire/IEEE-1394 support. One of the fastest peripheral connection standards developed to date, FireWire/IEEE-1394 connectivity offers PowerLook 1100 users such compelling benefits as blazing data transfer rates, hot-pluggable connectivity without the need for a host card, and the ability to connect multiple Macs to streamline workflow. To create professional-quality image production, the PowerLook 1100 achieves a high 3.4Dmax for fine details, 1200 x 2400 dpi with a 10, 600 element tri-linear CCD, and an effective 42-bit output using UMAX' patented BET (Bit Enhancement Technology). The scanner offers a transparency adapter, auto-detect frame holder for automatic scanning of up to twelve 35mm slides, and batch scanning capabilities. This scanner is bundled with Photo/Prepress software for photographers and prepress professionals. It includes PowerColor scanning software (scanning software including sophisticated drum scanner software features and color management) and Canto Cumulus (powerful media asset management software).
