Racing stripes are not included, but consider the new KODAK i780 scanner a performance-tuned vehicle that any business can use to drive mission critical document processes and meet its core demands in real time. Improved accuracy and productivity allows documents to be captured at optimal speed with superior image quality and ease of use.
Current business demands, driven by increased information-based processes and a need to meet heightened government regulations, require that critical information be pulled from a wide range of documents and sources. With a set of market leading features, the KODAK i780 scanner allows its users to meet the rapidly escalating requirements of production level, intelligent information capture, making it a natural choice for forms processing operations.
Richard Broden, Eastman Kodak Companys EAMER marketing manager in the Graphic Communications Group, said, The KODAK i780 Scanner elevates mid-volume production scanning by making it efficient for end-users to obtain real, usable data with every scan regardless of a documents original quality or structure. The combination of competitive performance features, including full compatibility with Microsoft Windows operating systems 2000 SP4, XP SP2 and Vista 32-bit, with Kodaks advanced image processing and paper handling, provides businesses with a precision tool to cut through the clutter.
Document throughput provides image capture speeds up to 130 pages per minute (ppm) and image resolution up to 300 dots per inch (dpi) at rated speed, in colour, greyscale and black-and-white, in dual stream mode and with all advanced features enabled. This enables higher OCR read rates when forms processing and raises the bar for mid-volume production scanning standards, further enhancing return on investment.
The i780 scanner provides a range of cutting edge image processing features to deliver outstanding image quality:
- Automatic orientation based on document content, saving labour and time required for presorting;
- Kodak Perfect Page image processing technologies for optimal image quality with readability equal to or better than the original native document;
- Auto colour detection for automatic colour scanning;
- Electronic colour dropout eliminates the form colour and captures only the information needed for processing;
- Auto cropping captures only the actual document and straightens every image and page to avoid distorted processing;
- Five output options meet virtually all imaging requirementsblack-and-white, colour or greyscale, plus two dual stream options, colour and black and white, or greyscale and black and white.
Versatile paper handling through Kodaks Sure Path technology provides the flexibility to easily scan mixed batches of business documents, photo prints, tear sheets and graphicsfrom 2 inches by 2 inches to 12 inches by 34 inches. An ultrasonic multi-feed paper detection system ensures that all documents and their content are captured by recognizing labels, stick-on notes and stuck together documents.
Rounding out image processing and paper handling performance is the i780 Scanners compatibility with available KODAK Capture Software, which offers many additional features including OCR and Barcode recognition, more than 40 different output formats, versatile batch scanning solutions, digital signature capabilities, and other useful production features.
