Contex has announced a new release of Nextimage software that includes support for 64-bit Windows installations. This compatibility means that all current Contex and Vidar software and device drivers for current scanners are compatible and tested to operate correctly in Microsoft Windows XP 64-bit and Windows Vista 64-bit. This support enables Contex customers to migrate to newer 64-bit versions of Windows so they can take advantage of the 64-bit capable processors (intel Core 2 Duo and later) on newer PCs.
"In keeping with our no compromise scanning solutions philosophy, our goal is to provide customers with the most current technology and a wide selection of scanning products. Adding support for the newer 64-bit versions of Windows, even before 64-bit becomes the industry standard, keeps us ahead of the technology curve. It's this foresight and dedication to customer satisfaction that keeps Contex customers coming back when they need to purchase a new scanner and that brings new customers to Contex every day," said Brian Honeycutt, product manager, Wide Format Solutions.
In addition to 64-bit compatibility, Nextimage 1.5.3 also adds: new printer support for the Canon iPF6000S; batch scanning in Nextimage TWAIN; as well asother performance enhancements and fixes.
The new 64-bit compatible version of Nextimage software is compatible with the current Contex and Vidar SD and HD series scanners, including the FLEX50i, as well as the previous G-series models. Customers ' existing Nextimage licenses will work when they install the new Nextimage.
