Powered by Fujitsus award-winning digital imaging technology, the new ScanSnap is an out of the box small office scanning solution, including a full version of Adobe Acrobat 6.0 software for saving documents in PDF format - the worldwide, de facto standard for secure and reliable document distribution via print, the Web, and mobile devices. The new ScanSnap can also scan straight to editable Microsoft Word and Excel formats.
At the touch of a button, ScanSnap fi-5110EOX will convert paper documents into digital images, scanning both sides of a page at the high speed of 15 documents a minute. ScanSnap automatically recognises whether documents are black and white or colour, and deletes unwanted blank pages. Adobe PDF files are generated as documents pass through ScanSnaps enhanced 50-page-feeder, which can cope with thick card to thin paper with ease. Users can also whip those piles of business cards into their PC as well, using the included CardMinder software.
