As part of its strategy to become the worldwide leader in the distributed document scanning market, Eastman Kodak Company has launched two new next-generationA4 desktop scanners the KODAK i55 and i65 Scanners.

The new i55 and i65 offer outstanding 600dpi bitonal and colour performance, high scanning speed, productivity, and added flexibility for companies, organisations, and governmental agencies with daily scanning volume requirements of up to 1,000 pages per day.

Kodak image processing, reliability, versatility, easy installation, and affordability these are all things Kodaks customers have requested at the workgroup level, said  Hauke Fast, Product Marketing Manager of Kodaks Document Imaging business.  Kodak responded with the i55 and i65, part of our ongoing efforts to enhance innovative products that help enterprises of all sizes to better capture, manage, archive, and deliver valuable business information.

Both scanners offer affordability, Kodaks renowned PerfectPage image quality, and reliability all in a compact desktop design that is ready to use right out of the box.

The scanners are ideal choice to scan business documents with mixed contrast and size. They are equipped with PerfectPage a set of easy-to-use automatic image processing functions for bitonal, greyscale and colour documents. This additional value makes both scanners user-friendly and eliminates the need to change settings and scan a document twice.

The i55 is a simplex model with speeds up to 30 pages per minute (ppm).  The i65 is a duplex model capable of processing 60 images per minute (ipm) by capturing both sides of a document simultaneously at A4 at 200dpi, or colour at 150dpi.
