The new standard for large format scanners

We designed Contex HD Ultra X 4290 to meet the needs of technical experts, graphical professionals, archivists and repro departments. Whether you intend to scan maps, drawings, posters, newspapers or fine art, this scanner will always capture every detail exactly as you see it.

HD Ultra X is the fastest collection of scanners we’ve ever made. With a top speed of up to 17.8 ips, you can increase your workflow tempo significantly. You can also switch between three different speed levels directly on the scanner’s intuitive touch panel. If speed doesn’t impress you, look at the width.

This series includes the world’s first 60-inch CCD scanner, but also comes in 36- and 42-inch widths. The size-flexibility, our Nextimage software and the unprecedented scan width gives you the flexibility to be smart and create a more efficient workflow.


  • High-quality lenses

    Contex CCD scanners use premium Fujifilm lenses to bring you high resolution images in the best quality available on the market today.

  • Instant-ON feature

    Save valuable time with the ability to start scanning without the warm-up time.

  • True size detection

    HD Ultra X finds the paper width automatically as it scans.

  • OTAC

    Quickly and easily adjust the scanner to the thickness of any original with Optimal thickness adjustment control.

  • Speed adjustment

    Three different speed levels at your fingertips on the touch panel makes it easy to adapt the scanner to your workflow and requirements of the original.

The HD Ultra X series is the most efficient and flexible large format scanners on the market. Especially for high-pace environments with the need of scans in the highest possible quality. Therefore, it is great for copy shops which make a living of delivering a great product in short time. But really, it can do almost anything.

Contex solutions are compatible with all leading large-format printers. Canon, Oce, HP and Epson.
