Fast and Flexible A4 Flatbed Scanning
The DS-6500 is equipped with a high resolution of 1200 dpi CCD sensor that captures images, graphics, and text in clarity and accuracy. It has a flatbed scanner that allows you to quickly and easily scan A4-sized documents, bound books and even odd-shaped articles.

The book spine correction scan is a new feature for Windows platform users only, to correct shadow and curvature around book spines.

High Speed Duplex Scanning and Durability
The DS-6500 scans at impressive speeds of 25 ppm / 50 ipm. The fast speed results in significant improvement in office productivity, as the DS-6500 is rated for a high daily duty cycle of 3,000 pages.

Reliable Performance and Convenient ADF
With its high capacity of 100-sheet ADF, it readily accepts a wide variety of standard or thin paper documents with a paper document size less than A6 (between 60 and 190 gsm) and all other sizes between 50 and 128 gsm. It is fitted with an ultrasonic sensor which prevents double-feeding and alerts you if there is a mis-feed.

Easy File Management
The DS-6500 is bundled with professional software that allows you to easily manage your scanned files.

Document Capture Pro (Windows Only)
The software allows you to easily scan, edit, save and/or convert to editible formats of the scanned documents. It can optically recognises barcodes, characters and blank pages in scanned documents to separate sections into different folders.

It also provides quick access to post-scan destinations, including scan-to-print, email, Windows™ Public Folder, FTP Web Folder, and Scan-to-Cloud services such as Microsoft® SharePoint Server, Evernote®, and Google® Docs™. The software supports up to 30 customisable job settings.

The OCR software enables searchable content on your scanned PDFs for greater productivity.

Optional Network Support
With the optional network interface panel, the DS-6500 can be shared amongst a work group through Ethernet. Users can easily select desired PC to scan to within the network via Document Capture Pro (for Windows platform users) or Epson Scan (for Mac platform users) application installed on client or server PC.

Powerful and Comprehensive Epson Scan Features
The Epson Scan suite of functions include numerous useful and innovative capabilities such as:

PDF/A-1b (ISO) Compliant Files
Stores original font size and maintains scans as an original copy.

Power Off Timer Setting
Saves power consumption by programming the scanner to Power Off after being idle for a set time.

Colour Enhancement & Colour Dropout
Pick one of the preset colours (red, green, blue, pink, purple, yellow, or orange) or use customised settings to remove or enhance the visibility of ink signatures, "Confidential" and "Urgent" stamps. This feature can also enhance or dropout multiple colours (maximum five) with one pass.

Save Time, Money and the Environment
With its energy-saving LED light source that requires zero warm-up time, power consumption is greatly reduced and it is still able to provide instant responsive scanning.
