today announced that its photo manipulation and creativity apps will be bundled with Hewlett-Packard’s new Scanjet 7400c flatbed scanner offerings.
announced in February, the new Scanjet models are the first to feature a two-sensor array — one is configured for high resolution (2400 DPI), while the other is optimized for high speed (600 DPI). HP said the logic to control which sensor gets used for what purpose is all handled directly by the scanner. The new Scanjet models come in three configurations — the 7400c, 7450c, and 7490.
Corel said that Hewlett-Packard will bundle several different Corel applications depending on the model. All three scanners will get Corel Photo-Paint 8 for Mac OS and Corel Print Office 2000 PC for Windows. The high-end 7490 model will also come with a copy of CorelDRAW 8 for Mac and CorelDRAW 9 for Windows.
All three scanners feature lighted transparency adapters for scanning slides, transparencies and negatives, from 35mm to 5×5 inches. The new scanners feature 48-bit color depth, programmable front panel buttons, and USB and SCSI interfaces. They’re compatible with Mac OS 8.5 and above. Prices range from $499 to $999. HP expects the new scanners to hit stores in April.
