On my Epson V700 the emulsion is always up.

I also photograph negatives this way, emulsion to sensor (nothing to do with how the Epson works). You lose a little bit photographing through the base. I always photograph negatives in RAW and do most of the convestion in ACR.

Thank you. Apologize for my undefined question. My question is referred to the setup as this picture.

The emulsion should face the lens, not the base. Looking at the film with the base facing you the text on the film should be backward. The base should face the lightbox. Then you just flip it in your processing app.
