[. . . ] A digital revolution
Now anyone with a computer can make high quality scans which were once only available from costly bureaux or copy shops. At the touch of a button, photographs, transparencies, negatives, news clippings, reports, letters, documents and a whole host of other keepsakes and business materials can be captured safely and accurately as digital files on your own desktop. Then they can be enlarged, enhanced or amended, incorporated into other documents, e-mailed, posted on Web pages, printed out or simply organised, stored and preserved safely in virtual filing systems. For more experienced users, extensive manual adjustments can be made, but when you need great results with minimum input, your scanner will take care of it for you.
Designed to suit any environment
The latest aesthetic designs ensure that EPSON scanners look good, while compact dimensions and quiet operation make minimum demands on your desk space. [. . . ] At low resolutions, the On Demand Pixel Optimiser allows ultra high speed scanning by only utilising one line of pixels, which reduces the time taken to read the colour information as the head moves down the scanning bed.
EPSON scanners are capable of high quality colour processing, with the Expression 1680/PRO achieving up to 48-bit processing, recognising over 281 Trillion colours and 65, 000 shades of grey. This is combined with colour matching for industry standards including Windows ICM, sRGB and Mac ColorSync to provide a scanned image which retains all the colour depth and accuracy of the original. Also, simultaneous RGB scanning ensures superior colour fidelity by continuously capturing and processing Red, Green and Blue data as the scan head advances.
High resolution 1600 x 3200dpi scanning assures superb image detail and edge definition.
