"The Leaf Volare incorporates decades of Scitex expertise in digital preprint pre·print
Something printed and often distributed in partial or preliminary form in advance of official publication: a preprint of a scientific article.
tr.v. , and we're confident that it will become the next de facto standard Hardware or software that is widely used, but not endorsed by a standards organization. Contrast with de jure standard.
de facto standard - A widespread consensus on a particular product or protocol which has not been ratified by any official standards body, such as ISO, for high-quality digital photography," said Adina Shorr, General Manager of the Scitex Input Systems Division. "Moreover, the unique synergy between our scanning and digital photography technologies provides the professional photographer with a full image capture solution."
An exclusive feature of the Leaf Volare digital camera back is the Leaf VHtwist, a mechanism that rotates the entire 6-megapixel CCD head for shooting vertical or horizontal images in the ideal orientation. A Leaf CCD Active Cooling system cooling system: see air conditioning; internal-combustion engine; refrigeration.
Apparatus used to keep the temperature of a structure or device from exceeding limits imposed by needs of safety and efficiency. contributes greatly to noise reduction and image quality. In addition, Leaf 14-bit HDR (1) (High Data Rate) A wireless data technology from QUALCOMM that provides up to a 2.4 Mbps data rate in a standard 1.25MHz CDMA voice channel. HDR can be used to enhance data capabilities in existing cdmaOne networks or in stand-alone data networks. (High Dynamic Range) file format assures that more color information is captured with Leaf digital camera backs than with any other system.
In the design of the Leaf Volare digital camera back, special attention is given to the workflow needs of the professional photographer. Live Video Preview, Leaf LiveFocus and Leaf Digital Layout(tm) (patent pending) streamline all processes from layout to image capture. Incorporating advanced Scitex technology, the award-winning Leaf ColorShop(tm) preprint production package provides a complete solution from image capture all the way to print.
