Ngenuity's innovative white LED illumination system requires no warm up time which means exceptional image quality as soon as you turn on the scanner. This means consistent image quality and fewer camera calibrations (only 1-2 per year).
600,000 scans on bond paper. 250,000 scans on NCR paper. Skimmer tires are now replaceable rather than the whole assembly. Tires and rollers are the only consumables on Ngenuity, reducing your cost of ownership.
Color images may look different on Ngenuity when the operator uses the same settings on VRS as they did with Spectrum. Operators may need to adjust their settings with Ngeunity.

The Ngenuity scanner is equipped to accommodate a SCSI connection for communication between the scanner and the host PC. The optional SCSI connection can be used in lieu of the standard USB connection.
NOTE: The SCSI and USB connection types cannot be used simultaneously.
To use a SCSI connection, a SCSI card and cable is required. BBH does not provide a SCSI card or cable with the Ngenuity scanner; therefore, these items must be purchased separately. Adaptec's AHA-29160 LP (low profile) KIT* or regular profile card is compatible with Ngenuity scanners. The SCSI cable must be a D68-pin SCSI-3 to LVD cable.
KIT*: The kit should come with a SCSI PCI-2 card, several external cables that are LVD,, VHDCI68M to SCSI-3 D68M, a low profile and standard face or mounting plate.
