Fujitsu has launched a network scanner which, claims the company, sets new standards in network scanner image processing. Due to its enhanced CPU and GI processor, the Fujitsu N7100 speeds up image processing within the scanning workflow by a factor of ten compared to its predecessor the N1800, offering the user a near-instant view of resulting scans and significantly cutting waiting time. The new active paper feeding mechanism prevents paper jams and maintains separation between sheets to avoid multiple pages being loaded into the scanner at the same time. Additional new features include automated PaperStream image enhancement capabilities and USB ports for keyboard or IC reader connectivity to further increase efficiency. The stand-alone network scanner can be operated without a PC and all N7100 scanners within a company can be monitored and managed by a central administration tool. Its large size touch screen provides easy access to role-specific job profiles for seamless integration with business processes. The new Fujitsu N7100 is on show at CeBIT 2015 (16 – 20 March) at the Fujitsu booth in Hall 7, Stand A28.
Total capture time reduced by 50 percent
The Fujitsu N7100 offers an enhanced CPU and GI processor which speeds image processing by a factor of ten compared to its predecessor, the N1800. This results in a near-instant view of captured documents – without queuing. The new solution scans paper-based information from its input tray at 25 pages per minute (A4, colour, double-sided, 300 dpi / 50 images per minute) and is capable of processing the raw images to high-quality information almost instantly, eliminating the image processing delays which burden many network scanners on the market. This reduces the total time needed to capture information by approximately 50 percent, placing the Fujitsu N7100 at a leading position in its class.
Active paper feeding system
The N7100 features an all-new active feeding system based on the Fujitsu 'Brake Roller' technology. Found in other high-end enterprise models, the system has been adapted to workgroup scanner requirements and means reliable sheet separation across a wide range of mixed paper stacks ranging from 40 – 209 g/m2 material and even plastic cards.
Built to support business processes efficiently
The network scanner features the most impressive PaperStream software capabilities found across the Fujitsu fi Series range which are designed for fast, high quality image processing and enhancement. It also offers two USB ports for peripherals such as a keyboard and, with the help of the SDK (Software Development Kit), it can also support devices like IC readers.
"The demand for network scanners is increasing," said Mike Nelson, Vice President at Fujitsu subsidiary PFU Imaging Solutions Europe Ltd. "The Fujitsu N7100 is built on the success and proven concept of the N1800 to offer exciting enhancements for companies of all sizes and government agencies alike."
"With just one touch of the job button, users can scan, save and transfer data in one go, without using a computer. And with the massively increased processing speed of the N7100 they avoid unnecessary waiting times," explained Klaus Schulz, Manager Product Marketing EMEA at PFU Imaging Solutions Europe Ltd.
Given that the scanner is shared in a workgroup environment amongst multiple employees, the N7100 offers security features like login authentication, encryption, automatic deletion of temporary document data and secure initialization leaving no trace of old user data.
The network scanner comes complete with Network Scanner Admin software and Scanner Central Admin Console for centralised management. It allows administrators to access individual network scanners or connect to a Central Admin Server to configure and manage all the N7100 scanners in the network simultaneously.
