MINNEAPOLIS, December 8-Laser Design Inc., supplier of 3-D laser scanners, is now shipping 64-bit computers with all of its Surveyor 3-D laser scanning systems. The added processing capability translates into faster scanning speeds, faster processing speeds and more reliable service when working with extremely large files. With more than 4 gigabytes of RAM, the improved system PCs make scanning faster and more dependable.

“Sixty-four-bit computing opens up new doors for laser scanning,” says Greg Hetzler, director of engineering at Laser Design. “In addition to increased data processing speed, 64-bit systems allow for double to quadruple the amount of system memory vs. a standard 32-bit system. This allows users to capture and work with significantly larger point clouds, and consequently perform tasks that would have been impossible before."
