There's no denying scanners have become an essential tool for homebased businesses. Yet the majority are still made with graphic artists, Web designers or general consumers in mind. One exception to the rule: Epson America's Perfection 636 color flatbed scanner ($299).
At 600 x 2,400 dpi, the Perfection 636 delivers the high-quality output necessary for creating visual media for your business. Compatible with both Macintosh and Windows 95/98 PCs, the Perfection 636 delivers true 36-bit color and 12-bit grayscale scanning.
Much to the liking of homebased businesses, the Perfection 636 boasts advanced technologies that make scanning accurate and easy. There's software included for quick one-button scanning. Improved OCR accuracy extracts text from color backgrounds and scans documents that contain a combination of text, graphics and photos. Epson's Scanner Basics Guide provides directions for setup, as well as recommended resolution and settings for a variety of output options.
The Perfection 636 has extra processing power built in to the hardware. Adaptec's PCI SCSI interface card ensures fast scans and is easy to set up because Windows 95 and 98 automatically detect it.
The software bundled with the Perfection 636 keeps entrepreneurs' needs in mind, too. It includes useful programs such as Adobe's PhotoDeluxe, Presto! PageManager, Xerox Textbridge Classic and Broderbund's The PrintShop PressWriter.
