Ideal for mobile workers who require document scanning on-the-go as well as service staff that need to conserve desk space or maintain a neat counter appearance, the Epson WorkForce DS-30 scanner weighs only 325 grams, comes in a sleek form factor that can easily fit into most briefcases, and needs only a single USB connection to a notebook or PC to operate.

The Epson DS-30 is able to scan a variety of items typically used by mobile workers ranging from business cards to A4 and letter sized (8.5 x 11 inch) documents. Being a portable scanner, it is designed with an LED light source that has a low power consumption of up to only 500mA to conserve the battery power of its users' notebooks.

Although it is a portable scanner with an incredibly compact form factor, the Epson DS-30 is packed with almost all of the capabilities and software that comes with full-sized Epson scanners to provide a comprehensive document management solution anywhere and at any time. These include: Automatic document size detection and skew correction, text enhancement, color dropout.

The scanner also comes with powerful third-party scanning software that includes Presto! BizCard 5 business card scanner, and ABBYY FineReader Sprint 9 optical character recognition (OCR) software (Microsoft Windows version).
