Epson DS-30000 Large-Format Document Scanner

By | October 21, 2020

 Epson’s DS-30000 Large-Format Document Scanner ($2,499) is a high-volume work area report scanner intended for use in huge workplaces and workgroups. Like the Xerox DocuMate 6710 inspected here in January 2019, the DS-30000 outputs up to newspaper size (11-by-17-inch) archives, contrasted with the normal record scanner’s letter-and lawful size impediments. A gigantic contrast between the DS-30000 and the DocuMate is that the last is a huge, super high-volume machine that looks more like a laser printer than a scanner. 

Epson DS-30000

It records for near multiple times more than the DS-30000, which, as a work area report scanner, has extendable plate front and back that crease up far removed when not being used. The principal wide-design work area record scanner I am aware of, the Epson is quick and exact, and in a couple of ways substantially more adaptable than the DocuMate 6710, also considerably more reasonable. That is all that could possibly be needed to gain our Editors’ Choice gesture for high-volume, enormous configuration work area archive scanners. 

Notwithstanding the DS-30000, Epson likewise offers the DS-32000, which conveys around 25 percent higher examining paces and volume evaluations for an extra $1,000. The DS-30000 estimates 8.6 by 14.6 by 8.2 inches (HWD) with its plate shut and weighs 12.8 pounds, which is about similar size as its beefier kin and near 3 pounds lighter. Conversely, Xerox’s previously mentioned DocuMate 6710 and Kodak’s i3500, another immense newspaper size monster, are a few inches greater every which way and weigh more than 20 pounds more than the DS-30000. 

The Epson is nearer in size and bigness to a standard-size work area archive scanner, for example, Visioneer’s Patriot H80 or Alaris’ S2080w. Neither of these backings newspaper size archives, however the Alaris machine offers a discretionary A3 flatbed connection for about $500. The connection, obviously, underpins just each sheet in turn, which isn’t as convenient as the DS-30000’s 120-sheet programmed archive feeder (ADF) fit for holding up to 60 A3 sheets all at once. Be that as it may, at that point, the S2080w and its connection together cost a few hundred dollars not exactly the Epson and a huge number of dollars not exactly other newspaper size machines. 

The DS-30000 accompanies Epson Scan 2 and Epson Document Capture Pro, which we’ll examine in a second. You can likewise set up and execute filters from a 2.7-inch programmable touch screen, demonstrated as follows. From here, you can design your own examining profile mentioning to the scanner what goal to utilize, regardless of whether the archive is a couple sided, what record organization to spare to, where to spare or send the document, etc, or you can pick a preconfigured work process profile comparing with programming on the machine to which the scanner is fastened. 

Like the greater part of Epson’s better quality work area record scanners, this one comes prepared to help just USB (for this situation, USB 3.0) availability, implying that it associates with a solitary PC. Epson offers a $350 Network Interface Utility that adds Ethernet availability to the greater part of its work area scanners, yet it doesn’t work with the DS-30000. Cell phones and tablets can’t get to the scanner, either. 

The ADF referenced before holds up to 120 letter-size sheets, 60 A3-size sheets, 40 postcards, 30 business cards, one to five plastic cards relying upon thickness, one long record up to 220 inches, 10 envelopes, 10 transporter sheets, or one identification with a discretionary visa transporter sheet. You can stack letter-size firsts in either picture or scene direction, a choice not accessible on standard-size scanners. Upheld goals range from 50 dabs for each inch (dpi) to 1,200dpi. 

The DS-30000’s day by day obligation cycle is 30,000 outputs, versus 35,000 for the DocuMate 6710, 25,000 for the Kodak i3500, 10,000 for the Patriot H80, and 8,000 for the Alaris S2080w. Like the greater part of Epson’s ongoing record scanners, the DS-30000 accompanies a three-year guarantee that incorporates next-business-day substitution, demonstrating that the organization believes in its items’ toughness. 

Top-Rack Software 

A run of the mill programming pack with Epson Workgroup DS arrangement scanners (instead of the WorkForce ES arrangement models) incorporates Epson Scan 2, a scanner interface utility, and Epson Document Capture Pro, an interface utility that is likewise a genuinely hearty record the board and – chronicling program. The two projects are cutting edge and very competent. The DS-30000 accompanies a redesigned 3.0 rendition of Document Capture Pro, which we’ll get to in a second. We should look at Epson Scan 2 first. 

What you and your sysadmin will like about Epson Scan 2 is that it can furnish every one of your clients with a mode or interface fit to their filtering experience. The modes are Home, Office, and Professional, each containing a lot of orders more unpredictable than the last to furnish every client with agreeable decisions and less mystery. As should be obvious in the picture underneath, Home Mode offers moderately barely any choices versus Professional Mode, with Office Mode arriving in the middle of with enough settings to change filters as the client sees fit. 

Epson Document Capture Pro 3.0 is a skilled and capable archive the board program intended to enable you to make, design, and keep up your own record the executives framework front end and back end. It cycles and spares your outputs to one or a few work process objections or document types. These 

incorporate picture or accessible PDFs, Microsoft Word or Excel, email, FTP, a printer, or different output, convert, and spare to-document the executives objections. You can likewise output to Google Drive, SugarSync, WebDAV, Microsoft SharePoint, and other cloud and document chronicling locales. 
You can make work process profiles in Capture Pro that compare with work numbers on the DS-30000’s control board. As such, you make all your setup settings, from goal to definite objections, and afterward spare the profile. At that point it will appear in the rundown of profiles on the essence of your scanner; select it and go. The DS-30000 accompanies a few preconfigured profiles that you can use with no guarantees, or change as you like. 
The product pack likewise incorporates TWAIN and ISIS drivers for similarity with existing applications, for example, Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft PowerPoint, and a large group of others that help filtering straightforwardly into them. 
Testing the DS-30000: Workhorse Speeds 
Epson rates the DS-30000 at 70 uneven (simplex) letter-size pages every moment (ppm) and 140 two-sided or duplex pictures every moment (ipm), where each page side is a picture. I should bring up that the organization doesn’t rate this current scanner’s newspaper or wide-design speeds, nor do we have a lot of wide-design benchmark schedules for surveying them. I tried the DS-30000 utilizing Document Capture Pro over USB 3.0 from our standard Intel Core i5 testbed PC running Windows 10 Pro. 
Without the slack time, or the time it takes for the PC to change over and spare the checked content to a usable record design (which for our motivations is either picture or accessible PDF), the DS-30000 examined our uneven 25-page text report at a pace of 74.3ppm and our two-sided 25-page (50-side) archive at 145.2ipm. Those numbers are somewhat over Epson’s authentic appraisals for the two tests. 
At this crossroads, however, the imaged text isn’t usable—not until it is spared in an arrangement upheld by a word-preparing, record documenting, or page-format program. So notwithstanding timing how quick the scanner digitizes printed copy pages, I additionally clock how long it requires for the product, for this situation Document Capture Pro, to change over and spare the content to picture PDF. 
The DS-30000 examined, changed over, and spared a similar 25-page heap of uneven pages to picture PDF at a pace of 71.9ppm. The two-sided stack took 142.4ipm, still marginally over Epson’s appraisals. By examination, the Xerox DocuMate 6710 oversaw 71.4ppm and 142.9ipm, while Kodak’s i3500 torn through my test archives at noteworthy paces of 115ppm and 214ipm. 
Next, I coordinated how long it required to sweep, convert, and spare to the more adaptable and complex accessible PDF design. This time, the DS-30000 transformed 50 printed version page sides into editable content documents in a normal season of 27 seconds, or simply over a large portion of a second for each page. 
Legitimate Text: Impressive Accuracy, Too 
Optical character acknowledgment (OCR), the way toward changing checked content over to editable content, has in a real sense grow up in the course of the last five to 10 years. There was a period in the relatively recent past when getting spotless enough transformations to maintain a strategic distance from tedious rectifications was an all in or all out, 
baffling suggestion. These days, however, OCR innovation has seen tremendous walks forward in both imaging and handling schedules, to the degree that most blunders (in any event, when filtering light, badly depicted content pages) are with little content under 8 focuses—and even there, frequently with text of 5 and 6 focuses, text dimensions seldom utilized in a large portion of the present archives. 
By the present guidelines, at that point, the DS-30000’s OCR exactness, while great and not needing a ton of subsequent altering, is about normal—down to 5 focuses blunder free on our Arial text style test page and 6 focuses without botches on our Times New Roman example. The DocuMate, for instance, tied these scores, and the S2080w got down to 6 focuses without botches on both text style tests, as did the Patriot H80. The huge, burly Kodak i3500 kicked up a fairly beneath normal score here, yet once more, it has in all probability observed a couple of updates
