HP announce two new sexy, transparent scanners designed around HPs advanced
CCD technology. Cool enough to be on show at home and thin enough to be slotted
away, the sophisticated HP Scanjets 4600 and 4670 are for the style conscious
who seek quality output at fast speeds.
"Scanners are the only link from analogue to digital photos, and as
digital imaging becomes increasingly popular they are moving out of the office
and into the home", said Tim Potter, HP Digital Imaging Category Manager.
"Our scanners take a giant leap forward both in design and functionality
and are perfect for sharing precious memories, capturing information or being
creative around the home or office."
Boasting a unique, see-through glass lid that scans "face up" the
HP Scanjets 4600 and 4670 let users to see exactly what will be captured, allowing
for perfect positioning and accurate scanning. They incorporate a unique, low
profile CCD technology that still uses dual CCD sensors to ensure all scans
are sharp and crisp, and Optical Character Resolution (OCR) technology to allow
documents to be digitised into text and easily edited in word processing programmes.
With 2400dpi optical resolution and 48-bit colour the quality of scans is nothing
short of outstanding and at just six seconds per document, the speed is incredible.
Both scanners are very easy to use and their four one-touch buttons including
scan, copy, Instant share and power save make any job simple.
HP say the innovative features and technologies incorporated within the new
scanners make creating and sharing images or documents a total breeze:
- The ArcSoft Panorama Maker software allows large documents including flipcharts,
wall planners, paintings and posters to be scanned in a series of sections
then automatically "stitched" together, giving A3 scanning and above
at a fraction of the cost.
- The Transparent Media Adapter included with the HP Scanjet 4670 (sold as
an accessory for the HP Scanjet 4600) enables simple scanning of 35mm slides
- HP Instant Share enables pictures to be sent to anyone, including the 34
pre-programmed email, website or printer destinations
- HP Memories Disc Creator Software allows the creation of DVD slide shows
with title screen and music for family and friends to watch via PC, TV/DVD
- HP Photo and Imaging Software provides everything needed to capture, personalise
and share images, with one set of instructions, icons and menus. The software
is available with a variety of HP digital imaging products, from cameras and
scanners to printers and all-in-ones for seamless operation across device
Stylish, Useable and Reliable
Both the HP Scanjet 4600 and 4670 scanners are not only stylish but are highly
robust and durable with the viewing glass resisting scratching, chipping and
cracking. The cutting-edge vertical design of the HP Scanjet 4670 also ensures
that users have a clutter-free, intuitive working environment.
