and the Carnival digital system
reading about ScanView
and the Carnival digital system, Andrea David and I decided to visit
the home office in Copenhagen, since this meant we would also visit
the home base for PhaseOne
(digital camera company) a few miles away. The Carnival is actually
made by a separate company, Color Crisp, but they are located in
a building adjacent to that of ScanView. Olaf Gronvaldt kindly did
a demo of the Carnival.
has a project to photograph all the plants and animals of the Maya
area (Belize, Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras), the Carnival would
be useful since jaguars tend to move, rapidly. Our goal is not only
to aid in the preservation of the ecology and natural habitat of
these endangered species, but also to study what Central America
looked like during the epoch of the great Maya cities. Was the jungle
all around the sites, or had the forest been decimated by the expanding
populations? What animals were eaten, what animals, birds, and reptiles
were worshipped as gods?
present the Carnival is tethered to electrical current; it cannot
run on a battery. But perhaps future generations can be adapted
to function from a battery. There is an ample market of natural
scientists, biologists, zoologists, and lots of professional photographers
who need to shoot on location. The computers which power the digital
software are all battery powered, so hopefully this option will
be available in the next year for the Carnival camera control unit
the meantime, we can say that the high end flatbed and drum scanners
of ScanView are precisely what museums, archaeologists, historians,
general scientists, and other scholars need for their departments.
you really want technical details on inkjet media, inks, and/or
inkjet printhead technology, and especially if you wish to meet
the movers and shakers in this industry, be sure to sign up for
the next conference organized by IMI. Their web site is http://imi.maine.com,
contact is firstname.lastname@example.org.
These seminars are outstanding; the senior review editor of FLAAR
usually attends because he can get so much fresh information for
the readers of the FLAAR Reports in PDF format and the FLAAR Information
Network of web sites.
