Canon’s new imageFORMULA DRG2 series scanners are the first production scanners to have both USB connectivity and an embedded LAN interface that removes the need for a dedicated PC or software application.

Designed for the digitisation of documents in corporate mailrooms, scanning bureaux and other high volume environments (up to a maximum of 70,000 scans a day), DR-G2 scanners are faster (up to 280 images per minute in colour at 300 dpi) and quieter than previous models.

They come with a 500-sheetdocument feeder able to scan batches of mixed paper sizes and thicknesses and can handle documents up to A1 in size (using the folio mode). A barcode and 2D code recognition feature gives users the ability to separate batches automatically, sorting them into multipage files using barcode information for naming/indexing.

In addition to ISIS/TWAIN/WIA and Kofax VRS Drivers for integration with scanning applications, the DR-G2 series has an SDK that customers can use to create bespoke applications. The three models in the series are the DR-G2090, DR-G2110 and DR-G2140.

Fujitsu turns scanning on its head

The latest model in Fujitsu’s ScanSnap range of personal document scanners turns the scanning process on its head. Instead of scanning a document and choosing what to do with it every time, the iX1500 lets users press a large colour-coded button on the 4.3-inch touchscreen to activate a pre-programmed scan, such as scanning a receipt into a spreadsheet or a particular folder.

Through the provision of multiple licences, a number of users can share the same iX1500 and pre-programme their own particular tasks.

In addition, the iX1500 can automatically name files, recognise different document types (e.g. photos, receipts, business cards) and send them to a preferred destination without the user having to adjust settings.

Another useful innovation is ScanSnap Home, which combines a user’s favourite ScanSnap software functions into a single application, enabling them to organise, preview, tag, search and retrieve documents in just a few clicks.

Featuring both Wi-Fi and Direct Connect modes, the iX1500 can handle documents up to A3 at speeds of up to 30 double-sided A4 colour sheets per minute. It has a list price of £509.

Alaris has expanded its award-winning S2000 Scanner line with the addition of the Alaris S2040 Scanner. With a list price of £576, the new 40 pages (80 images) per minute device delivers the embedded image processing power of the S2050 and S2070 models, but at a lower price point for customers who want a more affordable solution.

The S2040 features the latest Alaris Perfect Page image enhancement technology for clean, crisp images and optimum performance when using machine data extraction (OCR/ICR/ Forms Recognition) for workflows such as patient or customer onboarding.

It supports barcode reading and is bundled with Smart Touch Software, which eliminates multi-step scanning processes with one-touch simplicity. Users can confgure up to 20 different functions, making it quick and easy to perform common tasks, such as scanning a document to a file location or cloud service.

Other features include an 80-sheet automatic document feeder and compatibility with the Alaris Passport Accessory and the Integrated A4/Legal Size Flatbed Accessory.
