The Xerox DocuMate 252, the latest addition to the Xerox scanner range and the first to support duplex scanning, is now available in Europe.  It is the first colour sheetfed document scanner to scan 50 images per minute (ipm) in duplex mode and have the ability to automatically scan directly to searchable PDF - all for under 700.

The DocuMate 252 is already an award winning scanner.  It was recently awarded the AIIM Best of Show award for Hardware: Desktop Scanning and was also voted the "Best Product: Hardware" and the "Best Product: Peripheral" by the Top 100-Level Retail Buyers attending RetailVision Spring 2004 USA, the leading business event for the consumer channel. 

The Xerox DocuMate 252 scanner is developed, marketed and supported by Visioneer, Inc., based on the trademark licensing agreement between the two companies announced last year.

The DocuMate 252 was designed specifically for desktop and departmental use and it is the newest addition to the Xerox DocuMate scanner family. The scanner includes "one touch" technology, allowing users to easily set the destination of their scanned document by pressing a button and selecting one of nine pre-programmed (and user-customisable) scan settings. Destinations include scan to searchable PDF, scan to print, scan to archive, scan to network and scan to email.

"The DocuMate 252 establishes a new standard in price/performance, image quality and ease-of-use which are the three most important criteria in selecting a workgroup scanner," said Peter Trapmore, European Managing Director, Visioneer. "One touch scanning has revolutionised the industry, by simplifying multiple scanning processes into one easy step. When compared to the leading brand workgroup scanner, the DocuMate 252 is twice as fast in duplex mode, far easier to use, has superior image quality and sells for 20 percent less. End users will benefit in both increased productivity and return on investment."

The Xerox DocuMate 252 offers an optical resolution of 600 x 1200 dpi, 48-bit internal colour, a hi-speed USB 2.0 interface (USB 1.1 compatible), and includes TWAIN and ISIS certified drivers, Kofax VRS software, ScanSoft PaperPort Pro 9 Office, ScanSoft OmniPage Pro 12, Pixel Translations QuickScan Version 3.0, and ArcSoft PhotoImpression 4.0. The scanner processes 25ppm/50ipm at 200 dpi monochrome and greyscale. The user-friendly 50-page capacity automatic document feeder can handle paper and photos from business cards up to legal-size documents. The DocuMate 252 also has one of the smallest footprints of any automatic document feed (ADF) scanner on the market.

The Xerox DocuMate 252 is available through Visioneer and authorised distributors.
