A year ago not much was heard about SilverFast.

Whoever runs their PR department is immensely successful for the company. SilverFast has gotten its name everywhere. So now it is time to review them and compare SilverFast to more traditional scanning software such as the prepress favorite LinoColor or the Umax favorite Binuscan.

SilverFast runs on Agfa, Linotype-Hell, Imacon, Microtek, Nikon, and Umax scanners ( plus others). SilverFast thus handles the best 35mm slide scanners (Nikon CoolScan) all the way up to tabloid size Umax (Mirage IISE). You can buy SilverFast in any flavor from Publishing Perfection, 1-800 852-2348, fax (414) 717-0745.

SilverFast is even available as an interface on the $19,000 to $38,000+ Hi-Scan desktop drum scanner, with an impressive 10,000 dpi (that's true optical dip) (available from DTP Direct, 1-800 311 7083, ask for Scott Olson).


By autumn we should be able to post more information about

SilverFast for you. In the meantime, we are advancing on our review of LinoColor.
