Kodak has added a new product to its document imaging services with the launch of Scanmate i940 scanner for Mac computers, packing with precision capture feature for accurate imaging, strong paper rack and several software applications that would help Mac users organize and manage documents, as well as share them with others.
The new document management tool has been touted to have advanced technologies for imaging that are applicable both to personal and business uses, carrying with it a track of capabilities proven to perform to the limits a scanner can take.
Kodak and NewSoft have collaborated to develop i940, a combination of Perfect Page technology from Kodak and Presto Pagemanager 9 software from the latter. The end result? Well, Kodak claims the scanner produces images of high quality, providing ease of access, locating, editing, organizing and sharing using the built-in software’s navigation interface. The scanner comes with an optical character recognition, PageViewer for multiple functions, and document wallet for quick file conversion to PDF format that can be easily sent via email or to a printer.
The scanner can also create colored as well as black-and-white versions of documents all at the same time. Moreover, the device carries with it other features to auto-crop, de-skew, rotate, and adjust an image’s quality. The presence of Pagemanager 9 enables the scanner to share files to the could platforms such as Google Drive and Evernote, where multiple users share the same screen to access and edit a single document. The software application also has shortcuts to certain files and applications to help improve users’ productivity. To scan and manage contact information from business cards, NewSoft’s Presto Bizcard Xpress application does the trick.
The i940 scanner can accommodate as many as 500 pages per day, which translates to 20 pages in a minute or 40 images per minute for double side scanning at 200 dots in every inch in black and white and 15 or 30 pages per minute for colored images. That’s for the AC power of the scanner. When using its USB power, the scanner can process as many as eight pages per minute at 200 dots per inch. Further, its automatic document feeder can hold up DIN-A4, business cards, IDs, insurance cards, embossed cards and other small documents.
Kodak has rolled out the Scanmate i940 scanner for Mac computers for $567, with a three-year warranty and unit replacement for select markets only.
