Summary: Calibration of your GlobalVision flatbed scanner

Before you align and calibrate your GlobalVision F2 scanner, make sure you have cleaned the scan area. An unclean scanning area gives you imprecise calibration results.

The image-sensor alignment is fully automatic. Users only need to insert the single-pass scanner-maintenance sheet, activate the process through the maintenance wizard, the WIDEsystem software, and let the rest take care of itself. 

Insert the maintenance sheet

The wizard will ask you to insert the maintenance sheet that came with your scanner. The sheet’s printed side must be inserted face down. Align the sheet to the top-left portion of the scanner’s glass. Line up the arrows.

Start the scanner maintenance utility

Double-click on the WIDEsystem icon to open the program. Press the "Calibrate" button. The "Calibrate" window appears. 

Select "Full Calibration".

The program automatically analyzes the alignment and stitching status of the image sensors, performs a basic calibration to ensure stable and clean scans by reducing noise and unwanted effects caused by dust particles, and performs a color calibration, using the ANSI IT8 standards to ensure stable and predictable colors every time.

The wizard informs you when calibration is complete.

Wrapping up

Once calibration is complete, remove the scanner-maintenance sheet from the scanner, return it to its protective cover, and then place it in the storage folder. Store the folder in a dry place and out of direct light.
