nicholas68, thank you for remembering. What negative? Hahaha, haven't heard of this term for a while. Our drum-scanner is still in shrink-wrap after the move to Tampines. We’re mainly working with a high-end flat-bed CCD scanner, both from Dainippon Screen. With 99% digital, our scanners will be museum pieces soon.

Sorry to hear that the Colour Drum-scanning service are into the 'sunset' phase.
These are use to be the cash-cow during the 80s and 90s ( paying at $25 a scan ! ) -- before the High-quality desktop consumer grade Flat-bed scanners flooded the market in the Mid-90s, while digital medium format comes of age in late 90s.
However, scans of Transparancies ( Slides ) still out-perform any digitla imaging devices out there ( in terms of Dynamic range ), if you know what i mean ... however, due to cost and long-term savings, Publishing Houses and production trades are using "inferior" digital captures from digital cams, and make do with the poorer quality for the final proofs, and eventually to the offset printing.
It's like going forward in the digital publising revolutions, doesn't mean BETTER reproduction and printing output quality, as compared to the era of 80's printing - from magazines, books to advertsising posters, etc.
Well, every industry has it's cycle, and only business people who see it coming and make timely changes / restructuring are the Ones who will progress and thrive.
Any updates on the direct-to-plate or direct-to-print technologies ?
