Epson’s Perfection V700 Photo and Perfection V750 Pro professional scanner series has been recently adjudged as the best ‘European Scanner 2006-2007’ by Europe’s biggest multimedia press organisation, the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA).
Khalil El-Dalu, General Manager, Epson Middle East said: “Bagging the ‘European Scanner 2006-2007’ recognition speaks for Epson’s commitment to develop highly innovative products for professional and amateur photographers that combine the best in quality with the best in value.”
The Perfection V750 Pro, which is ideal for the professional photographer and the Perfection V700 Photo, which is suitable for photo enthusiasts or advanced amateur photographers, were chosen on the basis of the series’ innovative features and professional performance.
The scanner series was chosen by the Association’s Photo Panel, which is made up of editors of 16 leading photography magazines across Europe, and which is responsible for judging and selecting the best products for the photography industry.
The A4 flatbed scanner series features a Dual Lens System with Super Resolution Lens offering up to 6400dpi film scanning (up to 5.9” width) and a High Resolution Lens offering up to 4800dpi reflective scanning and film scanning (over 5.9” width). These two lenses allow the scanners to deliver a high resolution of 6400dpi without increasing the A4 footprint or compromising on quality.
The scanners also incorporate digital ICE technologies that automatically remove dust, scratches, dirt and fingerprints from film and photos. These also feature a large scanning area reaching up to 8x10 inches (203 x 254mm) and four film holders that support 35mm film strips and slides, in medium and large format film. Four strips of 35mm films, twelve 35mm mounted slides, two 6x20cm (max) 120/220 frames and two 4x5 inch frames too can be inserted.
The Epson Perfection V750 Pro features a High Pass Optics system that results in improved scanning speed and quality. An Anti-Reflection Optical Coating applied to the glass on the scanner eliminates reflection and ghosting and produces a sharp and clear image, while a High Reflection Mirror improves the reflection of the scanned light to the sensor, resulting in faster scanning speeds. The scanner is bundled with a fully comprehensive software suite that includes Adobe PhotoShop Elements 3.0, SilverFast Ai and Monaco EZcolor.
“The Perfection V700 Photo and Perfection V750 Pro are the world’s first flatbed scanners to offer innovative features at an affordable price. Therefore it is great that the features and quality of output has been rewarded with a ‘best in class’ seal of approval by a prestigious collective of photo industry experts of the stature of the European Imaging and Sound Association,” El-Dalu added.
