Epson launches FastFoto – World’s Fastest WiFi Photo Scanner
Versatile solution for scanning, restoring, organising and sharing photos
SYDNEY, 8 October 2018 – Epson Australia has launched its 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.
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 organisation tools.
Families can scan, restore and organise 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
General Manager – Sales & Marketing for Epson Australia’s Consumer Division Bruce Bealby said, “There was clearly a need for an ultra-fast and easy scanning solution that enabled people to digitise hard copy photos often stored in albums or boxes and vulnerable to many kinds of irreversible damage. The new FastFoto FF-680W not only saves these photos but also comes with a host of new features, making it easier to save and bring memories 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, organise, email and store important contracts, receipts, documents and files. In addition, you can easily edit documents and save time with automatic file naming and use powerful productivity tools such as the built-in Nuance® OmniPage Optical Character Recognition (OCR) which enables users to create searchable PDFs, plus editable Word and Excel® files.
