New stuff from Epson, this time a nice scanner…

Epson America, Inc. today announced the Epson Perfection V500 Office scanner for micro-business owners, home office users and consumers, delivering a scanning solution that effortlessly combines the productivity features of a document scanner and the image quality of a photo scanner into a compact package

Delivering reliable and easy-to-use office functionality, the Epson Perfection V500 Office is ideal for scanning everything from important documents to receipts. It includes a 30-page automatic document feeder with scan speeds up to three pages per minute, four push buttons for easy, one-touch scanning, and Epson ReadyScan LED technology for fast scans, eliminating warm-up time both when starting a scan or when switching between reflective and film scanning for enhanced productivity. ReadyScan LED technology is also mercury-free, and consumes less power for increased energy-efficiency.

In addition, the Epson Perfection V500 Office offers 6400 dpi resolution for stellar image quality scans, and a wide range of specialty photo features such as a transparency unit for negative, slides and film scanning, Digital ICE Technology for dust and scratch removal in film scans, and Epson Easy Photo Fix technology for restoring old and faded images, removing dust and reducing grain.

“Continuing Epson’s commitment to innovation, the Epson Perfection V500 Office is a versatile scanner that is designed to produce high-quality scans, whether for personal or business needs,” said Mitch Kadish, senior product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America Inc. “By combining the productivity features of a document scanner with detailed image quality expected from a dedicated photo scanner, Epson is able to deliver the ideal scanning solution at a great value.”

The Epson Perfection V500 Office adds further flexibility with a robust software bundle, including, Epson Scan with Easy Photo Fix, Adobe PhotoShop® Elements for advanced photo editing, Event Manager for one-touch scan jobs such as Scan to E-mail or creating searchable PDFs, and ABBYY® Fine Reader® Sprint Plus OCR for creating editable documents from scans. The scanner is compatible with popular operating systems including Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Professional, Windows XP Home/Professional, Windows XP Professional x64, Windows Vista®, and Macintosh OS X 10.3.9-10.5.x.
