Again, not sure where to talk about scanning, but this seems to be the place. We just picked up the Hasseblad scanner line, and it's like meeting up with an old friend. I've been working with these things since around Y2K (remember Y2K?
), even did "open scanner surgery" on one, with Per Holk on the other end of the line, while he talked me through replacing a desperate customer's drive mechanism. They're great, bulletproof machines.
Hasselblad has a little Flex demo video on their site, but it hasn't got any audio, so I snagged it and added a little explanation. If you're wondering exactly how the technology works, have a look at my post:http://www.parrotcolor.com/store/blog/?p=332
Also, for some reason I seem to remember Imacon developing the concept of the Virtual Drum through some sort of relationship with an earlier, now defunct company. Anybody have that bit of trivia at their fingertips?
