Kiel, Germany, 2011-07-20 - SilverFast, the most popular scanner software in the world, will be released as brand-new version SilverFast 8.

Also new and up to date is the graphical user interface, on which the user can quickly and easily find all important controls and features. SilverFast 8 supports Multi-Tasking and the latest 64bit hardware and is therefore extremely fast and efficient.

SilverFast 8 is compatible with Windows 7, Vista and XP, and runs natively on Mac OS X systems from version 10.5 (including 10.7 Lion). 32bit computers will be supported as well as 64bit systems.
