Video Systems by BST Promark
A large 100 x 75 mm (3” x 4”) field of view and a 10-power optical zoom allow operators to see more of the web in every image or any detail at up to 40x magnification.
Advanced picture quality combined with manual or motorized camera positioning makes the POWERScope 3000 a most versatile web inspection system – and a very POWERful press room tool!
New Quick Zoom – saves time when going to maximum or minimum zoom
New Dynamic Image Update (DIU) – provides greatly improved image navigation that is more natural, seamless and intuitive
New Basic Features – Split Screen, Auto Scan, Multiple Languages, On Screen Display – all standard features that help to make this a very powerful press room tool
Good things come in small packages, and this narrow web video inspection system is no exception. Only 4"x7"x10½", its compact camera box puts powerful inspection capabilities right where you need them on label, folding carton, business forms, and even flexible packaging presses. Proprietary camera technology delivers 450 lines of resolution--almost twice that of other single-chip systems--for incredible picture quality, image detail and color fidelity.
• Produces up to 42 times magnification—terrific for inspecting register marks, dot gain, and micro print--and gives press operators a large 3"x4" field of view of the web.
• System is intuitive to learn and use, with one-touch color-coded icons.
• Automatic Constant Scan allows continuous inspection of the entire repeat in machine direction.
• Basic Split Screen allows color comparisons to maintain consistency from roll-to-roll and job-to-job.
• Sony 15" SVGA non-interlaced monitor and metal anti-glare hood come standard.
• Integral surge protection, surface-mount PCBs and Intel™ microprocessors are standard on all 2000 series systems.

BST Pro Mark INTRODUCES NEW
PROScan® 3000 WITH VIRTUAL REPEAT® TECHNOLOGY
BST Pro Mark has introduced the PROScan® 3000 video web inspection system.
The most exciting aspect of the new PROScan 3000 is that it encorporates the companies unique Virtual Repeat® Technology. Virtual Repeat Technology allows the operator to see the entire print repeat in thumbnail images, and to easily and quickly move around the repeat. The technology was pioneered by BST four years ago, and has proven to be one of the most operator friendly and useful functions ever. The new PROScan 3000 is the first BST visual inspection system to incorporate the Virtual Repeat® Technology, which has previousely only been availabe on more expensive print process management systems.
A dramatic change is that the PROScan 3000 has as standard, a high-resolution 3Chip CCD Camera with 3 X 440,000 pixel resolution. The vastly superior resolution of 3 chip cameras produces the ultimate in picture quality and image detail. This is the first BST Pro Mark video inspection system in North America to use a 3 chip camera as standard. In Europe, 3 chip cameras are the standard by which all others are judged.
The system PROScan 3000 has a 4" X 5" or (optional) 7" X 9" field of view.The new product includes many innovative “Smart System“ functions specifically engineered to save time and make on-press quality control easier and more efficient than ever before. These include Quick Zoom, Color-To-Color Comparison, Positional Memory with Position Gallery and Combi-Scan. Split Screen and Auto Constant Scan (ACS) are also standard.
Color to Color Comparison (CTC) is used to effortlessly compare on press color from any position on the print with any other area on the print, by providing a simultaneous display of the reference and the live image in split screen mode.
The PROScan 3000 has Positional Memory that allows storage of 30 positions, along with the X-Y coordinates on the print repeat, zoom and iris settings and a full screen image for viewing and comparison with live print using the split screen function.
A new Position Gallery provides a thumbnail directory of all saved positions in seconds, and greatly simplifies the time to move about the critical memorized print positions.
Combi Scan, is another new and unique feature of the PROScan 3000, designed to automate the print inspection process.Combi Scan combines all the desired inspection parameters – programmed positions, Auto Constant Scan routine and Split Screen positions– into one comprehensive continuous inspection loop. This new feature allows building a custom inspection routine for every job, that insures all print is inspected in the most efficient and productive manner.
With the optional second camera or back strobe the PROScan 3000 becomes a very effective tool for inspecting front, back and front-to-back print in a variety of ways. The system can be used to view the currently active camera or images of camera #1 and camera #2side-by-side in Split Screen mode or in an adjustable Picture-in-Picture mode.
Front-to-Back Register (FTBR) is accomplished by combining a front side camera and a back strobe, to yield remarkably clear and useful images of both sides of the web even on heavy paper substrates.
The PROScan 3000 is suitable for use on a wide range of web printing presses and web widths – Offset, CI Flexo, In-line Flexo and Rotogravure. No other web inspection system on the market offers such useful start-up and running press quality control tools, which gives the PROScan 3000 a significant advantage over competitive systems
Introducing BST PREMIUS Digital, a comprehensive print inspection system built on an expandable platform. PREMIUS DIGITAL provides full visual inspection capabilities with optional defect detection, closed-loop register control, color monitoring and bar code verification modules.
BST PREMIUS is the technology of tomorrow. The advanced design is all digital with a digital camera, CAN bus communications, FireWire signal interface and our unique Virtual Repeat™ Technology
Research has shown that web inspection systems such as BST PREMIUS Digital generate substantial improvements in overall press productivity and efficiency. The average press will run faster, generate substantially less waste, will have shorter make-ready and will produce a higher quality product. The overall impact can often generate waste savings sufficient to pay for the system in months.
