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.
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.
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.
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.
