Epson Expression 1680 Special Edition Scanner

The remarkable 1600 dpi, 48-bit scanner for graphic arts professionals.

A remarkable breakthrough in high quality imaging, the Epson Expression® 1680 is Epson's first 1600 x 3200 dpi flatbed scanner to feature 48-bit color and a 3.6 Dmax. Optimized to deliver enhanced colors, subtle highlights, and sharp shadow detail, this affordable scanner sets a new standard in image quality.

The Epson Expression 1680 blazes through each scan with reliable performance and minimum noise. Our exclusive ColorTrue® II Imaging System and MatrixCCD™ technology combine custom optics, a xenon lamp, Dynamic Range Control, and superior image processing.

With the highest price/performance ratio in its category, this durable unit is perfect for busy graphics professionals and photographers. Quickly and accurately, it delivers extraordinary results with virtually any original, from reflective media up to 8.5" x 11.7" and 35mm to 8" x 10" transparencies (optional transparency unit required). Its quick-and-easy batch scanning capabilities help your customers increase productivity, while its Dual-Focus Mechanism, in combination with its custom film holders, eliminates "Newton Ring" problems.

The scanner supports both USB and SCSI connectivity. And, with the optional high-speed FireWire® interface, it's compatible with both the Power Mac™ G4 and the latest PCs. The Epson Expression 1680-Special Edition includes the EpsonScan scanning software and an electronic reference guide.
