Product Specifications

ScanMaker 5700 features 1200-dpi optical resolution and 42-bit sample depth while offering both FireWire (IEEE 1394) and USB connections to host. This latest generation scanner is also equipped with the FilmView (patent pending) light-lid which allows users to scan both reflective and transparent materials in one scanner with an exceptional level of quality. What makes FilmView light-lid unique is that it has a value-added light-box on its top where users can preview and select the proper slides or films to be scanned. ScanMaker 5700 is also the first scanner equipped with smart buttons for both one-step OCR and e-community photo sharing. The ScanMaker 5700 not only meets the demands of users for scanning outstanding quality images, it also provides the easiest way of achieving them.
