Epson announce the Perfection 1660 and 2400 Photo scanners - Both new models offer USB 2.0 connectivity to help produce fast scanning times. They also feature a built-in Transparency adapter.
Epson have added two new scanners to their range. The Epson Perfection 1660 Photo and Epson Perfection 2400 Photo both offer USB 2.0 connections and built-in transparency units. They are both 48-bit capable, but the main difference is the 1660's resolution of 1600dpi vs the 2400's resolution of 2400dpi. We hope to be reviewing one of these models soon.
Press releases for both scanners are included below:
When the benefits of creating copies of prints and enlargements in the home are recognised, a second time scanner purchaser often requires more speed and increased functionality. The Perfection 1660 Photo is an A4 scanner for the advanced home user, it offers a true 1600 x 3200 dpi for high-quality images and 48-bit input and output to capture and interpret maximum colour data. A USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface ensures fast scanning for the advanced home user. It also comes complete with a built-in 35mm x 6 frame transparency unit for scanning film and negatives. Whether it is used for standard photographs, film or simply text documents, the Perfection 1660 Photo will provide exceptional results every time.
The user-friendly scanner features EPSON's four QuickStart buttons for one-touch scanning. In addition users have the option to save an image which has been scanned from film, as a PRINT Image Matching (P.I.M.) file. When printed on a P.I.M. compatible printer, photos will be brighter and more vibrant. Additional advanced features include, document type recognition, auto skew correction, scan to PDA and scan to PDF.
Software bundled with the Perfection 1660 Photo includes EPSON Twain 5.6, which will operate in Full Auto mode to produce professional images with minimal intervention from the user. In addition, EPSON Twain 5.6 features document type recognition and auto skew correction to further increase ease of use. Also included is ArcSoft PhotoImpression 4 for photo editing and Presto! OCR software which converts hard copy into text documents.
Richard Baylis, Sales and Marketing Manager Consumer Products says, "While remaining extremely easy to use the Perfection 1660 Photo offers advanced scanning features for the more advanced user who wants to make the most of their scanning technology. Its stylish design ensures it will look good in any home, and the results produced from it will be delivered quickly and to the highest quality every time."
