KODAK SCANMATE i940 Scanner for MACINTOSH Computers Brings Image Quality to Apple Customers16 May, 2013
ROCHESTER, NY - May 16, 2013 - Kodak’s Document Imaging business announces a powerful new document management solution for users of APPLE MACINTOSH Computers that makes it easy to organize, manage, and share digital files and scanned documents. The KODAK SCANMATE i940 Scanner for MACINTOSH Computers features precision capture for increased image accuracy, robust paper handling for greater process efficiency, and bundled software applications that enable greater user productivity.
“The i940 has a proven track record of pushing the performance limits for a portable document scanner,” said Roger Markham, Kodak’s Future Product Marketing Manager for Document Imaging. The SCANMATE i940 Scanner for PC users is a PCMag Editors’ Choice and was selected by Better Buys for Business as an Editor’s Choice and “Innovative Product of the Year.”
“We’ve created a new device that uniquely delivers Kodak’s advanced imaging capabilities to help users enhance document management for personal or business tasks,” said Markham.
Kodak worked with NewSoft to specially integrate Kodak’s Perfect Page technology and NEWSOFT PRESTO! PAGEMANAGER 9 Software into the SCANMATE i940 for MAC (http://www.kodak.com/go/i940forMacNews). This combination results in high-quality images that users can easily and quickly locate, access, edit, organize and share from the software’s easy-to-navigate interface. The integration delivers enhanced functionality from Kodak including the simultaneous creation of color and black-and-white versions of documents. Other advanced imaging features help to correct and improve document quality with auto-cropping, image rotation, electronic color dropout, image merge, image edge fill, content-based blank page removal and automatic brightness and contrast. The application also provides optical character recognition (OCR) and an all-in-one PageViewer for editing or annotating documents.
Sharing documents scanned with the SCANMATE i940 for MAC is made easy with connectivity via PAGEMANAGER 9 Software to networked folders and cloud systems GOOGLE Docs and EVERNOTE. User productivity is maximized with customizable scan buttons within the PAGEMANAGER Application that provide shortcuts to favorite files and applications. Efficient document viewing is made possible with search functionality by file type or file name. PDF management tools include split and merge, file formatting options, PDF annotation and file stacking. A quick links feature also helps to minimize processing time by creating shortcuts to frequently used folders. Another timesaving function of the application is the document pallet, which allows a user to rapidly convert files to PDF, email the document or send it to a printer.
The SCANMATE i940 for MAC also includes NEWSOFT PRESTO! BIZCARD XPRESS Software for managing contact information scanned from business cards. The i940 Scanner for MAC connects via USB 2.0 and outputs to JPEG and PDF file formats. With a recommended daily volume of up to 500 pages per day, the SCANMATE i940 for MAC can hold up to 20 documents at a time from its automatic document feeder (ADF). The scanner, when AC-powered, captures images from documents at 20 pages per minute (ppm) at 200 dots per inch (dpi) in black and white or grayscale and up to 15 ppm at 200 dpi in color. Its USB-power option enables imaging at up to 8 ppm at 200 dpi. The ADF can also handle a variety of small documents such as identification cards, business cards, insurance cards and embossed hard cards. The SCANMATE i940 Scanner for MAC includes a limited warranty, which includes advanced unit replacement coverage for three years. KODAK Service and Support delivers a replacement scanner on the next business day and provides both packing materials and pre-paid return shipping. Ingram Micro has an exclusive agreement with Kodak to distribute the SCANMATE i940 Scanner for MAC in the United States until the end of June 2013.
