Capable of 600dpi scans, 20 color pages per minute at 300dpi
HP has announced the availability of the Scanjet Pro3000 s2 for business users. Said to plug into existing scanning platforms, the sheet feed scanner includes a 50-page automatic feeder for mass document scanning, and is capable of scanning A4-sized pages at 300dpi in color at up to 20 pages per minute.
With a hardware scan resolution of up to 600x600dpi, optical resolution of up to 600dpi, and automatic two-sided scans, the Scanjet Pro3000 s2 connects via USB using TWAIN, ISIS, WIA, and Mac drivers, and is rated to scan up to 1,000 pages per day. Scanned images can be turned into editable text using the accompanying Readiris Pro 14, sent directly to cloud storage or a SharePoint site, while HP EasyScan will allow for automatic cropping, color correction, and PDF creation.
The HP Scanjet Pro3000 s2 has gone on sale in the UK for £598 ($929), and is expected to become available in the US in the future.
