Features that matter

The SD One scanner is designed to be used by you right on your desk with 6 key features in mind. The objective has been to create a wide format scanner like no other. Focusing on 6 key features has enabled us to design a unique product that enables you to scan as-builts and other design changes right when you need them.

Using a standard USB connection enables connection to any PC or laptop. Simply install the scanning application that comes with the scanner and connect it to your PC. You may install the scanner on as many PC’s as you like. The size and weight of the SD One enables you to keep it right at your desk. You may also choose the optional stand and store the scanner when not in use. The SD one scanner is designed for Windows 8, 7 and Vista.
Lightweight and powerful. By using new materials and methods we have designed a product that is 3 times lighter than any other equivalent scanner in the market. The light weight and powerful design means it is easy to move and store when not required. You can simply bring the scanner to where you need to scan rather than bringing all the documents to the scanner.
The Cloud enabled SD One scanner can send documents directly to your preferred destinations. The only choice you have to make is where you need the documents – SD One handles the rest. SD One can deliver images by e-mail or directly into your cloud sharing and storing applications. There is a long list of supported Cloud destinations like DropBox,, Google Drive and many more.
Most wide format documents contains color information that makes changes and other important information easy to understand. The SD One supports full color scanning and can color JPG, TIF or PDF files. For smaller files the SD One also supports scanning in black and white or grayscale. You may also choose to upgrade the FREE software and benefit from even smaller color files by using Index Color. Upgrade to Nextimage REPRO and gain full color support like ICC workflow and copy functionality.
Available in two sizes to best support your document needs. The 24″ model (scanning up to 610 mm wide) will scan documents up to A1 / D size and take little space on your desk. The 36″ model (scanning up to 914 mm wide) supports even larger documents up to A0 / E size.
SD One supports standard document formats like PDF and PDF/A. These are formats that can be opened and printed in scale using the free Adobe Reader. With PDF/A you even benefit from a format that is protected from changes and designed for long time storing. We recommend PDF/A for storing your as-builds and documentation. For sharing and collaboration use standard PDF as this enables highlighting and annotations.
