Camera Microscanning Explained

Microscanning increases spatial and/or color resolution, in other words you end up with more true color reproduction. Microscanning in the ProgRes® cameras allows the image sensor of the camera to be shifted in both pixel and sub-pixel steps. This results in a more true color representation.


Microscanning works by allowing thoroughly adjusted Piezo elements to shift the image sensor of the ProgRes® MFscan, CFscan and C14+ in pixel and sub-pixel steps. The end result is very true color reproduction.
