Professional Scanner Software for PIE Scanners

SilverFast is included with some Pacific Image Electronics scanners and its new features ensure easier operation and improved image quality. Through the use of SilverFast Multi-Exposure (beginning with SilverFast SE plus), the dynamic range of all supported PIE scanners can be significantly increased, distinguishing an even larger number of grayscales. The PowerSlide series offers a range of magazine scanners that, with the help of SilverFast Ai Studio or SilverFast Archive Suite, can automatically scan and optimize a large number of 35mm slides.

We recommend that you keep in mind that when you purchase a Pacific Image Electronics scanner you can receive a copy of the updated SilverFast scanner software for this device.
