Film digitizer manufacturer Howtek has released a new flagship x-ray film digitizer based on charge-coupled device (CCD) technology. Called 960, the digitizer is equipped with an auto-feed mechanism that permits entire studies of up to eight films to be digitized at one time, according to the Hudson, NH-based company.

Priced at $21,500, 960 can accommodate film sizes ranging from 14 x 17 to 8 x 10 inches with the use of a built-in, adjustable sheet feeder. The digitizer offers a scan rate of 125 lines per second.

The resolving power is 11.5 line pair/mm.
