 HOWTEK SCANMASTER D4000 DRUM SCANNER
 RECEIVES SEYBOLD AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE
 HUDSON, N.H., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- At this year's Seybold Seminars, the premier conference of the publishing industry, the Howtek Scanmaster D4000 drum scanner was selected as a recipient of the Seybold Editors Award for Excellence. The D4000 was chosen by the editorial staff of Seybold Publications for its significance to the advancement of the computer publishing industry and value to users. Specifically, the scanner was cited for its advancements made in the areas of price/performance, productivity and future upgradability. David Bothwell, president of Howtek, stated, "We are very pleased by Seybold's acknowledgement that the Scanmaster D4000 achieves a level of performance at a price previously unattainable from the high-end scanner market. We expect that the D4000 will advance the use of color electronic pre-press systems (CEPS) as a result of this price/performance."
 Designed with the users in mind, features of the Scanmaster D4000 include a scanning area up to 10-inches by 10-inches, operator selectable resolutions ranging from 50 to 40000 dpi and an optical density of 3.8. Another key feature of the scanner is a removable drum architecture that allows for off-line mounting and gang scanning. The Scanmaster D4000 uses three precision matched photomultiplier cube sensors to collect RGB data and captures a full 12 bits of data per color in a single pass; the result is deeper shadow detail and greater highlights. At $39,700, the combination of scanning quality and affordability make the Scanmaster D4000 ideal for color separation, publishing and printing houses.
 Howtek designs, engineers and develops color scanners and systems for the pre-press, graphic arts and publishing markets. The company's product offerings include: Scanmaster, a series of drum, flatbed and 35mm color scanners; the Personal Color Scanner, a low cost, 600 dpi flatbed scanner; and Colorscan, a complete electronic pre-press color separation and page make-up system. Howtek was founded in 1984 by Robert Howard, who was also founder and president of Centronics Data Computer Corporation from 1969 to 1980. Howtek is traded on the American Stock Exchange under the symbol AMEX: HTK.
