Ambient light

Ambient light has a significant impact on the quality of scan results.

When installing scanning systems, the calibration or color profiling of the system is done in accordance with the existing ambient light. In order to guarantee a constant scan quality, the ambient light should not be subject to strong fluctuations.

Therefore, when placing the scan systems, make sure that they are located in a room that offers constant illumination and is not subject to strong light fluctuations or direct incidence of sunlight. Placement near a window or under ceiling lighting should be avoided if possible, as this can lead to disturbing reflections.

In addition, a slightly gray-tinted room color as well as a reflection-free housing, as offered by the new scanners of the book2net Black Line, can help to ensure the scanning quality.
