Colortrac, the leading innovator in the field of large format scanners, have announced the new Windows® 8 support for the SmartWorks EZ Touch, Touch Plus and Pro range of professional imaging software used by Colortrac for their SmartLF SC and Gx+ wide format scanners.

Windows® 8 is perfect for PCs with touch-screens. As well as being able to use with mouse and keyboard for more delicate imaging manipulation tasks, the intuitive use of the touch-screen adds a new dimension to the SmartWorks software. It does this by helping SmartWorks handle the large format scanning data, image manipulation, printing plus communication tasks and managing it in one easily used visual and tactile interface.


By using the Windows® 8 driven SmartWorks software you can also use existing applications such as ISIS drivers or add existing wide format printers to Copy, Print, Email, Edit, and archive your large format documents. It brings all your imaging tasks into a user-friendly interface, creating the perfect link between you, your scanner, digital storage, existing applications and your printers.


Take the Intuitive and powerful new SmartWorks EZ Touch Plus imaging applications. It makes your scanning workflow more productive and more connected than ever before. Copy to any printers, Scan directly into a file format that your software application needs like AutoCAD DWF, or Scan to your email, Scan to other network PCs; even share your scanner with other network users. Nearly every feature or function of SmartWorks EZ Touch Plus software has been designed to make the scanner and user more productive. With just ONE SCAN, each of the SmartWorks software family provide the tools that make it easier to improve your image more quickly and get the professional quality results you need. Less time equals more productivity whichever way you look at it!


Let Colortrac improve your image today. Commenting on some of the many new elements, Peter Brown Colortrac Executive Director said “Colortrac recommends Windows® 8 Operating System to power our SmartWorks EZ Touch, EZ Touch Plus and also the professional software SmartWorks Pro. This helps you get the most productivity and the best quality out of your image scanning, communicating, archiving or printing using any of the supported SmartLF wide format SmartLF scanners.”
