Epson V500 scanner
Epson on Tuesday introduced the V500, its latest scanner designed for small offices or home-based businesses. The device integrates a 30-page automatic document feeder with scan speeds of up to three pages per minute. ReadyScan LED technology is claimed to eliminate warm-up time when starting a scan or switching between reflective and film scanning.
The scanner supports resolutions of up to 6400 dpi, while a transparency feature enables users to scan negatives, slides and film. The included software offers tools to help remove dust and scratches from film, or restore old and faded images.
The Epson V500 Office is expected to ship in September for a suggested price of $350.
