Epson today expanded its high-speed scanning line with the new Wi-Fi1 enabled FastFoto® FF-680W High-Speed Photo and Document Scanning System. The FF-680W scanner is the world’s fastest personal photo scanner2, scanning thousands of photos – as fast as one photo per second at 300 dpi3 at up to 36 photos per batch. Building on the success of the FastFoto FF-640 scanner, the FF-680W scanner offers worry-free scanning for a variety of media types and sizes, including postcards, panoramic photos up to 36 inches and Polaroid photos as well as convenient photo restoration, editing and smart file organization tools. Families can scan, restore and organize collections of photos for quick and easy sharing, archiving and enlargements with the new FF-680W scanner. And, with the Easy Auto-Upload feature, the FastFoto scanner software makes it simple to share images to cloud services such as Dropbox® and Google Drive™4.
“Epson recognized the need for a fast and easy scanning solution that enabled people to digitize photos held captive in shoeboxes and albums stored away in closets and attics, and vulnerable to natural disasters, fires and floods,” said David Hawkes, product manager, Scanners, Epson America, Inc. “FastFoto unlocked a new market with the introduction of the FastFoto in 2016, making it affordable and feasible to preserve a family’s legacy. The new FastFoto FF-680W incorporates feedback from customers with a host of new features, making it easier to bring memories of yesterday back to life using the latest digital technology.”
Featuring Epson ScanSmart software, the FastFoto FF-680W scanner is also a powerful document scanner. Using the intuitive software users can easily scan, organize, email, and store important contracts, receipts, documents, and files. In addition, easily edit documents and save time with automatic file naming, plus powerful productivity tools. With built-in Nuance® OmniPage Optical Character Recognition (OCR), users can create searchable PDFs, plus editable Word and Excel® files.
