Epson Adds New DS-780N Document Scanner
Friday, April 21, 2017
Epson America Inc. has introduced three new commercial document scanners — the Epson DS-780N, DS-770 and DS-575W. The flagship model, the DS-780N, offers Epson's most robust feature set for network security and document management. All models deliver faster speeds, enhanced connectivity and a robust peak duty cycle for versatile scanning. The DS-780N, DS-770 and DS-575W also come equipped with TWAIN and ISIS drivers for seamless integration with existing third-party document management software. In addition, these scanners include Epson's new Three-Year Limited Warranty and Next Business Day Replacement program.
As end users in a wide range of markets — from insurance and legal to health care and finance — move to the cloud, it is critical to integrate a secure document management system. The Epson DS-780N provides a new level of network security, including user authentication, which allows control over who can use the scanner. In addition to simply controlling access, the DS-780N can define where documents are stored, encrypted and named to easily monitor and control the availability of sensitive scanned documents. The DS-780N is also the first Epson document scanner that includes a built-in LCD touch-screen panel and the first to have built-in network functions. Businesses can leverage the scanner's built-in network interface for easy sharing among multiple workstations.
"Our customers count on us to provide the most reliable and impactful document management solutions to meet their needs today and in the future, and having the best hardware partners is critically important," said Levi Longmore, president, Scanner One. "We've always been able to count on Epson to deliver document scanners with the speed, connectivity and features our customers need to increase productivity and efficiency — and with Epson's new three-year warranty, we know they stand behind their products."
The Epson DS-780N, DS-770 and DS-575W color document scanners are versatile workgroup sheet-fed scanners and offer varied feature sets and pricing options:
Designed for greater efficiency in heavy-use environments, the Epson DS-780N and DS-770 deliver scan speeds of up to 45 ppm/90 ipm plus a 100-page ADF with a robust peak daily duty cycle of 5,000 sheets. The DS-780N and DS-770 also offer enhanced features, including a slow speed mode for wrinkled and fragile documents. In addition, the DS-780N's built-in LCD touch-screen panel offers access to up to 30 predefined jobs available for each workstation and can be programmed for different scanner settings (e.g., color and black and white, resolution and text enhancement), and different destinations (e.g., folders, cloud storages or email attachments). Any of the defined jobs can be selected and commanded from the scanner touch screen.

Rounding out the line is the Epson DS-575W, delivering scan speeds of up to 35 ppm/70 ipm with the ability to scan both sides of one sheet in just one pass. A step up from the recently introduced Epson DS-530, it features a 50-page ADF with a robust peak daily duty cycle of 4,000 sheets. In addition, the DS-575W offers wireless capabilities for scanning to smartphones, tablets, computers or online storage accounts.
"Epson expanded its commercial document scanner line to ensure that businesses of all sizes have the tools required to increase their employees' productivity and efficiency in the office," said Mark Pickard, senior product manager, scanners, Epson America Inc. "With innovation for the end user in mind, we not only look to increase security functions, scan speeds and peak daily duty cycles, but also offer additional flexibility for connectivity — whether wireless or networked — to keep business moving forward."
