Epson expands scanner portfolio

Epson has unveiled its latest scanners, the new WorkForce DS-970 and DS-870, expanding its workgroup document scanner portfolio.

According to Epson, the new scanners are the company's fastest-ever colour duplex document scanners, designed for busy and high-volume offices of any size.

"Offering blazing-fast speeds for the demanding office environment, Epson's first 85 ppm/170 ipm1 document scanner, the DS-970 offers a peak daily duty cycle of up to 9,000 sheets2, while the new DS-870 scans as fast as 65 ppm/130 ipm1 with a peak daily duty cycle of up to 7,000 sheets3," the company says in a statement.

Featuring a 100-page Automatic Document Feeder for high-volume batch scanning, the DS-970 and DS-870 are designed to help professionals easily scan, organise and upload a variety of documents, including mixed stacks of business and ID cards, long documents and folded pages4 up to 11" x 17" (A3).

Using advanced paper feed technology, which includes Slow Speed Mode for delicate sheets, Double-Feed Detection and Paper Protection to prevent misfeeds, the DS-970 and DS-870 allow the user to scan important documents 'hassle and worry-free'. 

With the included OCR and Document Capture software as well as compatibility with both Windows and Mac, users can create searchable PDFs, store and share their work to online storage accounts such as Evernote, SharePoint and Google DriveTM5. Additionally, both models come with a compact, space-saving footprint, designed to easily fit within virtually any modern workspace.

Equipped with an LCD screen for easy navigation and mode selection, the DS-970 and DS-870 come with advanced TWAIN and ISIS drivers for seamless integration with existing third-party document management software.

With expanded versatility, users can choose from the optional Network Interface Unit to share the scanner across a network or optional Flatbed Dock to connect to a compatible Epson photo scanner for scanning photos, passports, or bound materials6. 

Both scanners include a three-year limited warranty.
