Kodak Announces New i80 Departmental Scanner



Today, Eastman Kodak Company's Commercial Imaging business announce the new Kodak i80 Scanner - the latest in its family of departmental scanners - which will be available in August 2003. The i80 Scanner is ideal for business departments with a wide variety of document capture and management needs.
With features including automatic deskew (squaring up documents during scanning) and autocropping (removal of unwanted borders to render the image to its actual size and thereby optimise file size) available for the first time in a Kodak departmental scanner, the i80 is the right choice perfect for all document management systems, optical character recognition, archiving, web publishing and many other scanning applications. The scanner is also a perfect and ideal fit for single user installation, as well as in large organisations with networked applications.
The i80 Scanner captures documents, photos and colour graphics at speeds up to 35 pages per minute (ppm), with a true duplex speed of 70 images per minute (ipm) at 200 dpi. Colour images are captured at 20 ppm and 20 ipm at 150 dpi. The i80's Scanner's document feeder handles up to 75 sheets at a time in a wide range of sizes and weights. The scanner has an automatic document feeder and handles volumes of up to 1,500 pages per day. In addition, the scanner features a built-in flatbed for scanning exception documents like books and magazines.
Although the i80 Scanner will be seen as the third scanner available in the Kodak departmental range of scanners, the i80 Scanner has been designed to not only handle the departmental market scanner market, alongside the i50 & i60 Scanners, but also address the needs of the low end Low Volume market. With a daily cycle of 1,500 pages a day and the ability to handle mixed size documents and output only the image size, the i80 Scanner starts to provide production capabilities in the departmental scanner range.
