'This is the most exciting product introduction from Microtek since the inception of the ArtixScan 4000t' commented Kevin Lamb, Sales & Marketing Manager for the UK and Eire. 'When you consider all the features and benefits of this scanner, together with the two year after-sales service package (Total Support), the ScanMaker 8700 will leave the competition standing'.
The ScanMaker 8700 comes with ScanWizard 5 - a program designed exclusively for Microtek scanners that applies intelligent scanning technology to automatically determine the size of a photo or document, adjust colour, brightness and contrast for optimum results. The user-friendly interface helps you process all scanned images at the click of a button. A follow me tutorial directs novices step-by-step through an actual scanning session and scanned images can be automatically transferred to printer, e-mail or image-editing software. More experienced users may override the automatic settings for precise individual control over every aspect of the scanning process.
It also comes with Adobe Photoshop LE, ABBY FineReader (OCR SoftWare), Ulead PhotoExplorer and Adobe Acrobat Reader. A version can be bought with LaserSoft SilverFast.
