Optimise your scanning
Healthcare & medical X-rays
Very few scanners are suitable for digitising X-ray film and, from a medical standpoint, achieving accurate detail and maximum colour depth is extremely important.
Using the latest software, capture photographs, negatives and X-rays in high-resolution detail, and to international standards such as DICOM.
Colour accuracy plays an essential role in textile production. Any errors in colour can render productions unusable, affecting supply and causing needless waste of materials.
SilverFast TexColorAnalyzer and Epson scanners can be used at each stage of the process, from design house to factory, ensuring that high colour accuracy and exacting standards can be met throughout the production process.
Ensure your photos and film are backed up and protected by digitising them. Whether it's film you've just shot, recently discovered old photos and film, or precious items, you need a solution that can deal with a whole host of specialist media and still deliver faithfully accurate results.
Some things just can't be replaced, and unfortunately pictures can yellow and negatives can start to degrade over time. Whether you're a photographer, history enthusiast, or museum curator, ensure that these precious details aren't lost forever.
Legal and public sector
When every pixel matters in important legal documentation - Epson Expression scanners are used. With an optical density capability of 3.8Dmax, 48-bit colour depth and Epson Micro Step Drive TM technology, high precision is assured even for applications like fingerprint forensics evidence.
Epson Expression 12000XL
The Expression 12000XL's optical density of 3.8 Dmax and 48-bit colour depth ensure sharp and accurate scanning for full reproduction of the widest range of colours, even in shadow areas. In addition, the high 2400 x 4800dpi resolution and ultra-precise Micro Step Drive technology enable users to capture even the tiniest details with exceptional clarity.
READYSCAN LED TECHNOLOGY
The Expression 12000XL is equipped with ReadyScan LED, an energy-saving and eco-friendly light source that requires no warm-up time, providing hyper responsive scanning. Dmax and 48-bit colour depth allow you to easily and consistently achieve scans with superior tones and colour reproduction.
HIGH-QUALITY IMAGE REPRODUCTION
A resolution of 2400 x 4800 dpi, an optical density of 3.8 Dmax and 48-bit colour depth allow you to easily and consistently achieve scans with superior tones and colour reproduction.
VERSATILE FILM SCANNING
With the Expression 12000XL Pro you can capture transparent and clear media in unrivalled levels of detail. The unit supports a wide range of film formats right up to A3+ size.
CLEARER, SHARPER SCANS
A 6-line CCD sensor array with large pixels provides greater scanning details during every pass. An Auto Focus system can achieve pinpoint focusing automatically for enhanced image clarity and accuracy, or you can take full creative control using the Manual Focus option. A density of 3.8 Dmax and 48-bit colour depth allow you to easily and consistently achieve scans with superior tones and colour reproduction.
Optimum hardware and software combination
Partnering with leading software expert LaserSoft Imaging, the creators of SilverFast, adds value and efficiencies to organisations where capturing the highest accuracy is of paramount importance.
Colour negatives and slides consist of multiple film layers, which respond to light differently. Therefore, transparent originals achieve a High Dynamic Range when captured, which usually exceeds a scanner‘s capabilities. Using SilverFast Multi-Exposure, you are able to nearly double the number of recognised levels of grey. This results in a clean crisp image capture.
SCC® - Selective Color Correction
Achieved as quick as a flash in a simple manner, it takes one mouse click to automatically recognise the colour to be changed. Then the colour correction is easily achieved wither either HSL sliders. SilverFast‘s selective colour correction is particularly intuitive. For more complicated cases, you can use the scalable vector masks to perform independent colour corrections on four layers.
Auto IT8 Calibration®
Just two minutes and two mouse clicks to colour-consistently calibrate a scanner! A colour calibration could not be more simple and accurate than the award-winning SilverFast Auto IT8 Calibration.
Image optimisation with just a single mouse click is, what the intelligent algorithms of SilverFast‘s Auto Adjust make possible. Automatic image optimisation is a welcome help not just for beginners. The advanced user can customise the image automatics according to their needs.
This tool removes the printing screen every printed original contains for production reasons, meaning that unwanted Moiré effects are avoided. SilverFast‘s Descreening is the only tool of its kind recognising and preserving printed text.
The Unsharp Masking (USM) is a sophisticated tool for luminance based calculation of detail contrast in order to improve image sharpness without compromising colour saturation and tonal values of the image. With the preview feature, the user can assess the resulting sharpness before scanning.
Scan a range of media, including film negatives
The optional transparency unit enables users to scan from transparent media, such as positive or negative film and slides, with professional results. Meaning you can digitalise and safeguard media in superior quality.
