because our outstanding range of software bundles take creativity to a
new level.
Designed to suit any

A digital revolution
Now anyone with a computer can make
high quality scans which were once only

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

EPSON’s exclusive Advanced Scanning

PhotoDeluxe
EPSON QuickStart Buttons
All EPSON scanners have the excellent
EPSON Start Button, but the EPSON
Perfection 640U and 1240U scanners
also feature EPSON’s latest QuickStart
system, comprising three simple
buttons on the front of the scanner.
In addition to the programmable
EPSON Start Button, users can use the
Copy button as a short cut to the
Smart Panel copy function or the
Scan button for scanning direct to
Adobe Photo Deluxe.
EPSON TWAIN Drivers for
flexibility and control
EPSON drivers are packed with features
designed to give you comprehensive but
simple control of the entire scanning
process. All feature clear, informationpacked user interface screens. The
Perfection Series have TWAIN L or
TWAIN 5 drivers which offer a wide
range of functions including Full Auto
mode which scans to the application
without any user involvement.
Other features include Auto Exposure for
maintaining pure white backgrounds;
Auto Document Recognition which
optimises scanner settings to match the
original (eg colour photo, mono
document), sophisticated new colour
smoothing for block-colour illustrations
and Auto Skew correction which detects
the alignment of the original (or
originals) and automatically straightens
it when the data is transferred to the
application.
In fact, by using the Multi Photo
Scanning function, several photographs
can be placed on the scanner bed, auto
located, exposed and skew corrected at
the same time, and you can even scan
each one into a separate window.
EPSON Expression and GT Series scanners
feature EPSON TWAIN Pro driver software,
which is equally simple to use but
amazingly effective. Features include
Batch scanning, Auto Exposure and
Multiple Marquees, as well as

EPSON Advanced Scanning Technologies
Leading the way in
scanning technology
EPSON Advanced Scanning Technologies
are being continually developed to
provide the ultimate in text sharpness,
perfect focus and colour accuracy. You
can be sure that every Perfection,
Expression and GT Series scanner has
been built to offer the ultimate
performance at every stage of the
scanning process.
High resolution, high
performance
Excellent Text scanning
Text Enhancement Technology ensures
maximum text recognition, even when
documents feature coloured backgrounds,
have diagrams behind the text or are
printed on thin media which can ‘show
through’ printed information from the
reverse side. This is further enhanced by
Automatic Area Segmentation, which
separates text and photographic elements
of a document, processing each at
optimum settings to ensure the sharpest
text whilst maintaining subtle gradations
in images.
Colour Quality
EPSON’s high quality, large diameter,
precision optical lenses are quality
controlled to ensure superior sharpness
and clarity, and work seamlessly with
EPSON Micro Step Drive - an exclusive
development which advances the scan head
in tiny, highly controlled increments – to
ensure consistent quality throughout the
entire length and width of your scans at
optical resolutions from 600 x 2400dpi to
1600 x 3200dpi.
1600dpi
800dpi
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.
Superior film and transparency
scanning
Dynamic Range Control is another
unique EPSON development, a
professional-standard technology that is
particularly effective in transparency
scans, but also ensures the best printed
or negative film scanning by taking into
account different dynamic ranges. The
result is improved overall quality with
particular improvement in shadow detail
in dark-coloured areas
EPSON MatrixCCD™ Technology
with On Demand Pixel Optimiser
The majority of the EPSON Scanner range
features EPSON’s cutting edge alternate
MatrixCCD™ technology, which utilises a
staggered array of sensors to collect
information which is then merged into
a single line to effectively double the
scanning resolution.
This is carried out by the high
performance image processing ASIC
(Application Specific Integrated Circuit)
which also assures virtually instantaneous
image display and reduces the load on
your computer, allowing it to perform
other tasks while data-intensive
high-resolution scanning is in progress.
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.
High resolution 1600 x 3200dpi
scanning assures superb image
detail and edge definition.
