Agfa announced the first of its new generation of TwinPlate scanners, the Duoscan F40. The new scanner offers both FireWire and USB connectivity in a 42-bit DuoScan. The TwinPlate scanner provides separate beds for scanning reflective and transparent originals.
Agfa includes glass-free slide holders with the DuoScan F40, designed to eliminate distortion, such as Newton Rings, that can be caused by the glass plate.
In addition to the newest version of Agfa FotoLook scanning driver and ColorTune color-management software, Agfa includes Adobe Photoshop LE and IRIS ReadIris optical character recognition software.
The DuoScan F40 features an optical resolution of 1,200 x 2,400 DPI, 42-bit color depth and a dynamic range of 3.0 D. The reflective scanning area is A4/legal with an 8" x 10".
The DuoScan f40 will be available February 2001 for $999. For more information, visit http://www.agfa.com.
