Convenient A4 scanning is just the start. With its innovative straight paper path, the DR-2580C can handle small plastic cards, thick and thin paper and most types of forms. The addition of a detachable flatbed option gives you added flexibility to scan directly from bound books, reports and magazines.

Superb image quality

The DR-2580C provides black and white, 24-bit colour, greyscale and duplex scanning, all with sharp, clear and detailed images, whether for graphics, photos or the lightest text. Features like high resolution (up to 600 dpi) scanning, auto shading and a Colour Dropout feature that automatically removes red, green or blue provides control at your fingertips.

Flexible scanning options

Scan light text, signatures, pencil marks and notes without problems using the advanced text enhancement mode. The DR-2580C also has a “remove punch holes” function that automatically eliminates unsightly marks so that you always get clean, professional scans.

Easy and efficient document management

The DR-2580C comes bundled with CapturePerfect software that helps optimise image quality, allows you to display images any way you want and gives you full control of quicker, more efficient scanning. The addition of eCopy PDF Pro Office gives you greater ability to create, convert and edit PDF files throughout your organization.
