Epson, a world leader in digital imaging and printing solutions, has set a new standard of digital scanning for photo enthusiasts with the affordably priced Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner. Designed to meet the requirements of demanding photo enthusiasts, the new Epson Perfection V600 Photo scanner features a class-leading optical resolution of 6400 x 9600 dpi that provides unbeatable image quality. It also features Epson's proprietary Digital ICE (Image Correction Engine) Technology that uses both hardware and software processes to remove dust and scratch marks from film and photo scans, giving its users perfect scans anytime.
Equipped with ReadyScan LED Technology, the scanner's LED lamp requires no warm up time and is able to perform immediately with minimum energy consumption, making it extremely environmentally friendly.
The Epson Perfection V600 Photo, which possesses the highest optical resolution in its class can achieve an optical density of3.4DMax, allowing users to archive old photographs and documents with unmatched detail. Its 48-bit colour depth as well as embedded ICC profile also aid in capturing vivid and accurate colours for the most precise scans.
Using Epson's Digital ICE Technology in the Epson Perfection V600 Photo scanner, damaged film and photo scans can now be repaired and restored to their original state. While conventional scanners can only support either software or hardware methods of dust and scratch removal, the Epson Digital ICE Technology uses both a hardware and software process to automatically detect and correct defects such as folds, tears, dust and scratches on the surface of films and prints during scanning. This technology works by using an infrared beam to detect defects, compares it to an image captured with its main light source, and removes the defects accordingly.
The Epson Perfection V600 Photo scanner features Epson's ReadyScan LED Technology which allows it to start up instantly, thereby increasing efficiency dramatically. It also eliminates waiting time while switching between film and reflective photo scanning, thereby enhancing overall speed and performance.
In addition, this feature is mercury-free and does not dissipate heat during scanning, resulting in lower energy consumption and ultimately, lower running costs. It effectively reduces energy consumption by about 20 per cent during operation and 44 per cent on ready mode, making the Epson Perfection V600 Photo scanner one of the most environmentally scanners.
