The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2003-07-08T12:57:00Z Kodak Announces New i80 Departmental Scanner 2003-07-08T12:57:00Z 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. New feautures for the Kodak i800 Scanner Series. 2003-06-24T17:50:00Z new-feautures-for-the-kodak-i800-scanner-series Today, Eastman Kodak Company's Commercial Imaging business announce new features, including iThresholding, for the Kodak i800 Scanner Series. Since the release of the i800 Scanner Series, Kodak has been reviewing customer feedback on features required and this has driven these new productivity enhancements. The Kodak i800 Series Scanners, are high-speed, high volume production scanners with an unlimited recommended daily volume. The scanners feature SurePath paper handling for fast, streamlined, jam-free document feeding, 3-D multi-feed detection and Kodak's proprietary Tricolour Plus CCD sensor, which enables bitonal or colour scanning at high resolution and high speed. Available in August 2003, the i800 Scanner Series will now include: - iThresholding for the i800 Scanner,Colour on the Fly, Brightness and Contrast Control. iThresholding was introduced at the start of this year for the Kodak 3520 Scanner family. It provides the ability to scan a greater mix of document in a single batch. Light Contrast, highlighting, thin documents can all be scanned in one batch without operator intervention. Since releasing iThresholding for the Scaner 3520, customer's feedback has been excellent with the main question being, when will the i800 have iThresholding. Colour on the Fly allows you to insert a PATCH sheet, at document preparation time, and if currently scanning in colour will automatically, once the patch is detected, swap to Black and White scanning. When the patch is seen again it will revert to Colour and so on. Brightness and Contrast Control is a new utility that will allow the users to modify the current Colour Control Tables. Currently the i800 Scanner comes with four colour control tables that have been optimised for specific document sets. Now with the Brightness and Contrast control feature you are able to modify these tables to suit your documents. Kodak Ships New i200 Series Scanners 2002-10-23T20:27:00Z kodak-ships-new-i200-series-scanners ROCHESTER, N.Y., October 23, 2002 The new i200 Series Scanners from Eastman Kodak Companys Commercial Imaging Group are now shipping to customers worldwide. The scanners have been widely acclaimed by a number of distributors, integrators and test site customers and are already slated for installation in a variety of vertical markets from insurance to government agencies and financial institutions to transportation companies. The i200 Series Scanners offers breakthrough technologies many leveraged from Kodaks award-winning high-speed production scanners and contain a combination of capabilities unmatched in its class, including capture of color images at the same speed as bitonal, a unique dockable flatbed accessory, a plug and play IEEE-1394 (FireWire) connection, SurePath paper handling, and an array of Perfect Page image processing features such as autocrop, deskew, despeckling and adaptive threshold processing all focused on maximizing throughput and return on investment. The i200 Series Scanners combine the best technology from Kodaks higher-volume scanners, said Fred Rosewag, federal business development manager, Promark Technology. By combining the CCD sensor, the paper-handling technology, and the dockable flatbed at a affordable price point, we believe this scanner family will take ownership of the market segment. Our customers asked for advanced imaging technologies in the low volume category, said Paul Whittard, general manager of the Groups document imaging business in Greater Asia Region. This product set delivers our most advanced technologies like the Kodak TriColor Plus CCD Sensor, which enables high-speed, bitonal or simultaneous bitonal and color capture at a price point normally associated with bitonal only scanners. The i200 Series Scanners are designed to handle more than 5,000 pages per day, and up to 50 pages per minute (ppm) or 100 images per minute (ipm) at 200 dpi in color, grayscale or bitonal. The scanners are the first truly modular family of desktop production scanning devices. The i250 Scanner (simplex) and i260 Scanner (duplex) can be converted from sheet-feed only units to sheet-fed with flatbed via the industrys first-in-category, A3 size dockable flatbed accessory. The flatbed easily snaps into the scanner for documents that need special handling, such as bound materials. Other options include a post-scan imprinter. The i200 Series Scanners are packed with advanced technology, said Eric Hesnard, director of DICOM France. This product should have a similar positive impact on the low-volume market as the Kodak Digital Science Scanner 3000 Series had on the mid-volume scanning market. Kodak has loaded the i200 Series Scanners with features found on its highest-speed i800 Series Scanners delivered last year: Kodak TriColor Plus CCD Sensor, which allows simultaneous output of high resolution black and white and color Electronic color drop-out to remove irrelevant background color (e.g., on business forms) to provide clear, sharp detail and smaller file sizes 3D multi-feed detection with ultrasonic technology, a nearly calibration-free system that minimizes the risk of lost documents Kodaks Perfect Page imaging technology reducing the need for operator involvement eliminating pre- and post scan quality control Leveraging the superior Kodak feeder technology allowing you to feed almost everything. The paper handling is almost unreal, said Young Hwan Kim, KMS Korea. Until using the i200 Series Scanners, I have never seen a low-volume scanner that accepts torn documents without damaging them any further. The i200 Series Scanners, which are Energy Star compliant, are delivered with both ISIS and TWAIN drivers and Kodak Capture Software Lite, which supports all innovative features of the scanners. Available in the fourth quarter 2002 will be a full version of Kodak Capture Software, a high performance plug and play application with an array of indexing and batching features that can be used with a majority of popular document management and imaging systems.
