What is SilverFast?

Individually adjusted to presently about 340 different scanner models, SilverFast® brings out the maximum quality from any device.

SilverFast Archive Suite is a comprehensive archiving solution for digitizing your images fast and easy. The Archive Suite is a package consisting of scanner software and imaging software for a subsequent image optimization. Although SilverFast is designed for professional image editing, handling the software is so easy that even beginners can create brilliant pictures using the intelligent automatic functions and the integrated QuickTime movies. SilverFast is available for Mac and Windows and is usable as a stand-alone software, as well as a Photoshop plug-in.

JobMonitor App - For scanning or processing large image files in SilverFast 8, the new JobMonitor App will comfortably display the progress of these scans or image optimization jobs on your iPhone, iPad or iPod. You will find a preview image and a progress bar for every single image item enlisted on your current job queue.

Printer Calibration - Now optionally available for SilverFast Ai Studio 8 and the SilverFast Archive Suite 8: The new Printer Calibration. Use your flatbed scanner to calibrate your inkjet printer. For exact and brilliant colors, you can create an individual ICC profile for every paper/ink combination.

Horribly expensive and you have to pay a licence for each scanner you got. It does a good job but it’s not the first choice in my opinion (take a look at Vuescan).
