This week we are going to talk about Canon and their line of High/Mid/Low-volume, and check scanners. Canon scanners are usually priced very competitively. At ImageSource we also manage scanner service repair and Canon’s are just as reliable and have the same loyal following as other brands.
Canon scanners offer the kind of high-performance features that make converting paper documents easier. Like high-speed precision feeding technology, compact design, high-speed color capability and even flexible configuration options.
Canon’s highest volume scanner is the newly released DRX10C, which rivals the competition with an impressive 128 pages per minute scanning speed in both color and black and white. Great image quality comes from the onboard image processing chip that can handle multiple image processing functions. It also boasts the industry’s first dust-free scanning system which prevents dust particle from adhering to the sensor glass. This minimizes manual cleaning for the end-user thus reducing time spent maintaining the scanner. This robust design allows for up to 60,000 scans per day meeting the demands of production level scanning.
The rest of the Canon scanner line includes 18 models ranging in speed from 20 ppm up to 112 ppm. This expansive variety of models allows the end user to find the perfect fit with speed and design for their document capture or distributed capture solution. Canon also provides 3 different models of check scanners, which is a niche that most of the other well-known scanner manufacturers do not venture into. This can be very beneficial for those in Billing and Accounting areas of business that deal mainly with processing large quantities of checks. Having a true check scanner give you the option of reading the MICR codes on the bottom of the checks.
One noticeable difference with the Canon scanner line is that they do not ship with Kofax’s Virtual Rescan (VRS) technology that many of the other manufacturers include as a basic with their standard packages. It can be added on to any of the scanners as an aftermarket upgrade, so not bundling it with VRS cuts down on the cost. Talk about flexibility.
And…Finally network scanners with new technology have arrived! Stay tuned next week for our blog about Network scanners, including those offered by Canon.
