The Epson Company

Today, the Japanese company Seiko Epson Corporation (SEC) is one of the largest manufacturers of image-processing technology in the world. The Seiko Epson Corporation has over 72,000 employees in 88 subsidiary companies.

In 1961, the company Shinshu Seiki Co. was founded, which then in 1985 merged with the Suwa Seikosha Co. Ltd.; the current Seiko Epson Corporation was the result of this merger. The later brand name “Epson” was originally coined in June 1975 when the “son of EP-101”, the successor to the world’s first small printer (model “EP-101”), was presented. In 1974, Epson America Inc. was founded and in 1979 the subsidiary Epson Germany GmbH, which has its headquarters in Meerbusch, Nordrhein-Westfalen.

Epson has a very wide range of products and develops and distributes printers, digital cameras, projectors, cash registers, industrial robots, LCD components, as well as scanners world-wide. Above all, they develop and distribute flatbed scanners, flatbed scanners equipped with a transparency unit, A3 scanners, document scanners and multifunction devices complete with fax and scan units.

Professional Scanner Software for Epson Scanners

Mr. Zahorsky, founder and CEO of LaserSoft Imaging AG, was one of Epson Scannings’s first sales partners in Europe and advised Epson in the development of their scanner technology, which back-then was still in its infancy. The existing partnership that LaserSoft Imaging AG and Epson share began in 1985 with this relationship. Epson continuously opts to work together with SilverFast and encloses a copy of the SilverFast software with its most important DIN A4 and DIN A3 models.

The developers at SilverFast know Epson scanners like the back of their hands and have fine-tuned the software to work exceptionally well with Epson hardware. Numerous additional functions improve ease of use, increase efficiency and enhance quality. SilverFast Multi-exposure demonstrably increases a scanner’s maximum dynamic range. A doubling of captured gray scale is thus not a rarity and provides scanned images with significantly more detail.
