A Low Priced Internet Scanner!

Product Specifications

The UMAX AstraNET e3420 is the first complete Internet scanner. Scan images directly to your private online photo album, make your own Web page or send PhotoMail to friends and family. With the AstraNET e3420 it's easy. With the WebLink software you can scan your images directly to your private Internet photo album, without requiring that the image be first saved to your hard drive. To launch WebLink, just press the Custom button. The AstraNET e3420 also includes free Internet service from NetZero. With 600 x 1200 dpi optical resolution, the AstraNET e3420 provides image scalability allowing you to scan and enlarge images. Featuring a 14-bit analog to digital converter for true 42-bit internal color, it will provide trillions of sharp, vibrant colors. The AstraNET e3420 features the exclusive Intelligent Imaging Process Engine (IIPE) which automatically optimizes images and text to ensure that you get great results every time you scan. UMAX' exclusive IIPE automatically detects whether a document or photograph would best be rendered in color, grayscale, or black and white. Unlike most scanners, the AstraNET e3420 does not require the user to define media type, color type or size. IIPE technology also determines the optimal resolution, auto-crops the image area, and even rotates the output to the correct orientation if the source image is askew on the scanner bed. Featuring fast push-button scanning, the AstraNET e3420 includes Scan, Copy, Custom (WebLink, Email or OCR) and Power Saving buttons. By combining the push-button functionality and Intelligent Image Process Engine (IIPE) technology, UMAX has provided users with the functionality to scan many types of reflective media with just a push of a button. The Power Saving button allows the user to power-off the scanner's fluorescent lamp without losing the connection to the computer through the USB port. To power back on the scanner's lamp, simply press the Power Saving button a second time. There is no need to refresh your computer since the USB connection through the USB port was maintained.
