Paradigm Imaging Group Signs Distribution Agreement with

NewWave Technologies

Costa Mesa, CA – July 11, 2007 – Paradigm Imaging Group announced today that it has entered a distribution agreement with NewWave Technologies, a nationally recognized award winning distributor of document imaging, automated data storage, and CD/DVD duplication products and services. This new partnership will allow NewWave Technologies to add the Graphtec SK200C large format scanner and the SP200W scanner printer combo to its product offering. The SP200W copy system combines two large format, high productivity Graphtec devices, the SK200 36” scanner and the new MasterJet JW220 24” printer.

Joel Port, Vice President of Sales with NewWave Technologies said, "NewWave is very excited about the addition of Graphtec Wide Format scanners to our product offerings. The Graphtec scanners will enable NewWave to offer our customers a full range of scanners now including the ability to scan and print oversize documents. We are confident this will be openly received by our existing reseller base and enable us to gain new customers as well."

“NewWave Technologies will distribute recently introduced Graphtec products that are targeted for the document imaging marketplace. This new relationship will greatly extend our reach to the document imaging channel,” said Paradigm President Randy Geesman.

Graphtec America is also enthusiastic about the new distribution agreement that has been reached between Paradigm Imaging and NewWave Technologies, Inc. According to Wayne A Suraci Vice President of Marketing for Graphtec America, Inc., this new distribution arrangement will bring Graphtec’s latest product offering in the large format copy category to a myriad of users that depend on NewWave for document imaging solutions. Graphtec products will add versatility and new solutions to the already impressive list of products and services supplied to NewWave customers.

SP200W Desktop Multi-Function System

The Graphtec SP200W addresses a new market segment of end users who require an affordable, large format scanning, printing and copy solution in a compact desktop configuration. The Graphtec SP200W measures only 48” wide by 18” high and 24” deep at a price of only $10,995. The Graphtec SP200W system provides fast, reliable and effective large format image capture for the most discerning and demanding users in the CAD, AEC & GIS industry. The SP200W includes:

  • A Graphtec SK200 36” scanner,

  • A Graphtec JW220 24” color printer,

  • Scanning Arts scanning, printing and copying software and TWAIN Driver

  • One-year on-site service in USA and Canada.

Unlike more traditional CCD (charge-coupled device) scanners, The Graphtec 36” SK200 scanner incorporates CIS (Contact Image Sensor) technology that has no lenses, lights or mirrors. It also allows the scanner to be used within a few seconds of power-on (some CCD scanners have a warm up time of several minutes). The SK200 uses the same CIS technology that has made Graphtec IS and CS scanners the most popular CIS devices in the USA. Scan resolution can be set from 100 to 600 dpi true optical resolution and up to 1200 dpi interpolated. The SK200 scanning speeds are up to 5-inches per second in black and white and 1.5 inches per second in color.

MasterJet JW220 Printer

The MasterJet JW220 printer is a 24” wide, four-color thermal inkjet printer. It contains two print heads, a dedicated black, with a nozzle configuration of 320x2 lines and a CMY print head with a nozzle configuration of 160x3. The JW220 prints a D-size black and white copy in approximately 60 seconds and a D-size color copy in 270 seconds.

Scanning Arts Software

The Scanning Arts software for the SP200W provides an easy-to-use full-featured interface required for a broad range of projects. The large control buttons on its main control screen are designed to provide a feel and functionality similar to that of an office copier and is fully compatible with touch-panel monitors. This system software performs a variety of functions including scanning, printing and copying. Scanning Arts™ provides optimized default settings for a variety of original document types including maps, drawings, blueprints, photos and posters, thereby providing touch-of-a-button operation for many projects.

SK200C 36” Scanner

The SK200C scanner offers 600 dpi optical resolution with black and white / grayscale / full-color capability. It scans technical drawings, blueprints, maps to a high standard and offers superior image accuracy, stitching quality and needs little or no calibration. Scan speeds of the SK200C are 3-inches per second in black and white and 0.75 inches per second in color. Graphtec scanners utilize state-of-the-art CIS technology for higher reliability, faster capture speeds and lower technology costs.

At 54 pounds the SK200 is the lightest, smallest and most transportable large format scanner and sits snugly within one compact, space-saving desktop footprint. Its small size makes it the most suitable large format scanner for use in small office environments.

The SK200C scanner is supplied with Paradigm Imaging’s imageFLOW software for quick and easy scanning, copying and printing. The imageFLOW interface has a “copier like” control interface and is compatible with touch screen monitors. Under the imageFLOW interface resides an advanced RIP engine that supports over 550 printers, includes over 325 ICC profiles and can print postscript files. The SK200C also includes a TWAIN compatible driver.
