Fujitsu to demo scanner
Fujitsu has promised to showcase its newest ScanSnap Scanner for Mac at the Macworld 2008 Conference and Expo from January 14-18 in San Francisco, CA. The company also said it will announce a forthcoming device to address the mobile document imaging needs of the Mac community. Fujitsu's new ScanSnap S510M is one of the only single-pass duplex automatic document feeder (ADF) scanners available today for the Apple community, according to the company, and comes bundled with ABBYY FineReader 3.0 optical character recognition (OCR) software. Live demonstrations of the S510M will take place at booth no. S308.
"The S510M scanner enables users to convert documents into editable and searchable portable document format (PDF) files, all with the push of a button," Fujitsu said. "Additionally, with the bundled Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional, ScanSnap boasts flexible editing features including commenting and mark-up capabilities, enabling advanced collaboration."
The Fujitsu ScanSnap supports Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger as well as Apple's latest Mac OS X Leopard operating systems, and features an upright 'one-button' design with a 50-page ADF that allows users to scan at speeds up to 18 pages per minute (ppm) for single-sided documents or 36 images per minute (ipm) for double-sided documents.
