Canon USA and Kofax Release New Option for Canon's imageFORMULA DR-X10C Production Scanner
Lake Success, NY (August 27, 2008) – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of digital imaging technology, and Kofax plc, a provider of Intelligent Capture and Scanning solutions, announce the release of a controller board option for Canon’s imageFORMULA DR-X10C High-Speed Color Production Scanner that can leverage Kofax’s Virtual ReScan (VRS) functionality.
The imageFORMULA DR-X10C is designed for high-volume, paper intensive environments with an impressive suggested daily volume of 60,000 scans and scanning speeds up to 128 pages-per-minute (ppm) and 256 images-per-minute (ipm)i. Kofax VRS improves the accuracy of data captured from scanned documents that are processed by intelligent character recognition (ICR) and optical character recognition (OCR) technology, significantly reducing the need for manual corrections.
VRS performs a real-time, multi-point inspection of the images created as documents pass through a scanner, identifying and correcting any impairments that could impact ICR’s and OCR’s ability to read them correctly. The Kofax CGA Board option implements the VRS capabilities via hardware allowing users to complete scanning tasks at high speeds for the VRS features selected.
“The Canon imageFORMULA DR-X10C scanner is the flagship model in Canon’s DR-Series Scanners,” said Jim Rosetta, vice president and general manager, Imaging Systems Group, Canon U.S.A. “The combination of Canon’s digital scanners and Kofax’s advanced image processing technology will help maximize VRS scanning performance in high-volume environments.”
According to Andrew Pery, Kofax’s chief marketing officer, “Image quality significantly impacts the success of data extraction, recognition and retrieval. By incorporating the Kofax solution into the Canon imageFORMULA scanner, Canon and Kofax can help users reduce the time involved in manual document preparation and dramatically enhance the quality of their scanned images.”
The Kofax VRS Kit for Canon imageFORMULA DR-X10C scanners, which includes the Kofax CGA controller board and CD containing VRS software designed specifically for the imageFORMULA DR-X10C, is available through authorized Canon dealers, select distributors and Canon resellers for a suggested retail price of $2,550.
