Kodak Introduces i200 Series of Document Scanners

Eastman Kodak Company introduced the i200 Series Scanners, a new family of low-volume document scanners that feature much of the technology found in the company's highest-speed scanners plus the market's first dockable flatbed accessory for scanning documents that need special handling.


The i200 Series Scanners, manufactured by Kodak's Document Imaging business, are the first scanners in their price range to provide such innovations as color scanning at the same speed as black and white and a standard IEEE-1394 (FireWire) connection to the host computer. The scanners come in two models - the i250 (simplex) and i260 (duplex) - and scan more than 5,000 pages per day. The scanners will ship by the end of September and will cost between $4,600 and $9,400, depending on configuration. Through the i200, Kodak plans to extend its No. 1 share of the high-volume scanner market into the market for lower-volume devices. According to a recent report by researcher InfoTrends, the market for low-volume production scanners will grow 20% annually in North America through 2006. Similar growth is expected in Europe, according to data from market researcher European Scanning Programs.


The i200 builds on the innovative technologies that Kodak incorporated into its i800 Series Scanners, the company's highest-speed scanners and the No.1 selling product in its category worldwide. The i200 Series includes:


·         simultaneous bitonal and color output, helping to reduce pre-sorting and manual scans;

·         Ultrasonic 3D multi-feed detection, a calibration-free system that minimizes the risk of lost documents;

·         Electronic color dropout, which removes irrelevant background color (e.g., on business forms) to provide clean, sharp detail.


The i200 scanners also feature Kodak's SurePath paper handling system, assuring smooth control of documents as they pass through the scanner, and Kodak's Perfect Page scanning, a combination of optics, illumination, sensors and algorithms that optimize image quality.
