The Company

LaserSoft Imaging was founded in spring 1986 by the physicist Karl-Heinz Zahorsky, the president of the company today. LaserSoft Imaging became an early adaptor of color- and image processing on the Macintosh.

In fact LaserSoft Imaging was the first to distribute innovative products e.g. video digitizers, such as Pixelogic's »ProViz« and Truvel's »TrueScan«, the first professional colour scanner for the PC, which was first shown at Hannover fair CEBIT in 1988, which LaserSoft Imaging was invited to by Apple Computer.

LaserSoft Imaging's Headquarters is located in Kiel, Germany, by the Baltic Sea, 60 miles north of Hamburg. Kiel is the capital of the most northern province of Germany, Schleswig-Holstein and known as the international sailing city. (read more)

SilverFast - image processing software

SilverFast HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a software for processing 48 Bit RAW images. Many actual scanners are able to output the image directly with all existing data instead of breaking it down to 24 Bit. This 48 Bit raw image could be saved immediately, where the digital processing could be done later on. (read more - 48Bit HDR software)
