You don’t have to choose between quality and price anymore with the 1240UT Scanner


Soon, you can own a professional-level scanner at a very economical price. Acer Communications & Multimedia (ACM) is introducing a new 1200dpi scanner model, the Acer ScanPrisa 1240UT. The Acer ScanPrisa 1240UT will offer not only high-end optical resolution, but it also incorporates an internal transparency mask, making it a comprehensive scanning solution. Despite its professional-level performance and features, the new scanner comes at a midrange price, making it certain to cause a stir in the corporate and individual power-user markets.

Through interpolation technology, the Acer ScanPrisa 1240UT can attain optical resolutions up to 19200 dpi, and incorporates ACM's Advanced Colour Enhancement Technology, which allows 48-bit colour for hyper-realistic scanned images. The design of the new scanner employs an integrated transparency mask, which allows users to scan not only regular paper documents, but also create digital files of film positives, slides, and negatives. In addition, the Acer ScanPrisa 1240UT includes a convenient positioning frame for transparent items to prevent unwanted movements and ensure optimal scanning quality. For mainstream and high-end SOHO and business applications, the USB interface-based Acer ScanPrisa 1240UT is an ideal scanning solution, with a comprehensive range of features and excellent performance.

Because of their relatively high cost, 1200 dpi scanners have generally been confined to professional users. Taking advantage of breakthroughs in core scanning technology, ACM has been able to use a high-resolution CCD scanning module in the Acer ScanPrisa 1240UT while keeping down costs. As a result, it is now able to offer consumers a scanner that combines exceptional performance and reasonable price.

The software bundle included with Acer ScanPrisa 1240UT further enhances its already phenomenal value. Bundled software includes the powerful MiraScan driver for PCs and MiraScan Pro for Macs, the Scan Button hotkey utility, Ulead's PhotoExpress image processing application, Presto! PageManager image file management utility, Adobe Active Share online phone-sharing application, ABBYY FineReader OCR package, and the Copier document duplication utility.
