Features and Benefits
 
Exclusive built-in DIGITAL ICE Photo Print Technology removes surface defects from photos automatically Unlike software only applications, DIGITAL ICE Photo Print Technology's integrated hardware and software automatically rebuilds prints without user intervention. DIGITAL ICE is exclusively designed and customized to be integrated into a particular scanner line for optimal print reconstruction results. DIGITAL ICE creates a defect map to identify the precise locations of physical defects or visual "noise" on a print being scanned. Differential shadowing technology and proprietary software algorithms quickly and automatically eliminate the unwanted defects producing an image that closely resembles the undamaged original.
