Epson adds to scanner range


Epson's latest scanners are aimed at businesses that need to scan significant quantities of paper.

Epson's GT-S55 and GT-S85 scanners are designed for scanning documents into business systems, and are rated at up to 25ppm and 40ppm respectively. Both sides of a page can be scanned in one pass, so that's a maximum of 50ipm (images per minute) or 80ipm.

Features include no warm-up delay and low power consumption.

The automatic document feeder takes anything from a business card to A4, and a wide range of features are provided through software. They include dual image output (two files with different parameters such as format and resolution from one scan), edge fill (to correct any shadowing around the document), text enhancement, automatic processing of text as black-and-white and pictures as halftone, enhancement of specific colours (eg, blue or red ink) when scanning in black-and-white, colour dropout (automatic removal of a single colour to remove backgrounds or overstamps), and automatic orientation according to the text on the page.

NewSoft Presto! PageManager, ABBYY Fine Reader Sprint Plus, and Presto! BizCard Reader are included with the scanners. Windows and Mac OS X are supported.

The software includes 'scan to' functionality (eg, scan to email or to SharePoint) and a driver that allows integration with other applications.

List prices are $999 for the GT-S55 and $1299 for the GT-S85.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
