New unit provides software correction of binding image distortion

Image scanner manufacturer Fujitsu today introduced the newest addition to its ScanSnap product lineup, the ScanSnap SV600 -- featuring a new technique to quickly and easily digitize bound, fragile and large documents. While still maintaining the ScanSnap goal of providing one-button scanning and advanced imaging technology, the SV600 utilizes its compact scanning design to turn hard-to-scan objects into PDF or JPEG files which can then be easily stored, shared and accessed.

The ScanSnap SV600 can scan 11x17 documents up to 1.18 inches high in less than three seconds at 600dpi in color. It is capable of scanning multiple documents at the same time, such as business cards or photos, which can then be automatically cropped into individual digitized documents. The new scanner is equipped with new "Versatile Imaging Technology," allowing the scanner to minimize the unevenness in image quality and generate a smooth, uniform digital image that looks natural to the reader's eye. Its single camera-scan functionality also gives users the ability to scan valuable and delicate documents without ever touching the surface.

The ScanSnap SV600 also includes "Book Image Correction" and "Page Turning Detection" functionality. The Book Image Correction compensates for the curvature in open books or magazines and automatically corrects the distortion in the scanned image. Following the preview scan, users confirm and fine-tune the images on the preview dialog. Page Turning Detection automatically identifies when a page is turned by the operator for continuous one-button scanning of an entire document.

The Fujitsu ScanSnap SV600 is available now for $795 through Fujitsu authorized resellers.
