Panasonic Debuts Next-Gen 'Image Capture Plus' Workgroup Scanner
New KV-S1065C boasts integrated auto-image orientation, PDF, OCR functions
Panasonic System Communications Company of North America recently announced the release of the KV-S1065C, an advanced high-output workgroup scanner incorporating Panasonic's proprietary Active Double-Feed Prevention, LED scanning illumination, advanced image processing, and Image Capture Plus technologies.
"The key indices in evaluating workgroup scanner value and performance are image quality and job-start-to-job-completion runtime," noted Joseph Odore, Product Manager, Panasonic System Communications Company of North America. "Every other important factor derives from those. To meet the requirements of high-workflow offices and deliver maximum return on investment you need two things: stellar imaging, advanced paper handling that minimizes rescans; and user-friendly operating and maintenance features that maximize uptime and non-stop batch runs.
"We believe that the KV-S1065C, with its exclusive hardware features, integrated Image Capture Plus enabling application, and legendary Panasonic build quality and durability set a new standard for scanners that are equally at home in a front-office reception area and a fast-paced, multi-user back office."
A combination of forward-design technologies gives the KV-S1065C best-in-class paper-handling capability. Superior features include independently rotating rollers and Panasonic's proprietary Active Double-Feed Protection system to minimize paper skewing and to prevent double-feeding; automatic-output speed reduction for short documents; mixed paper and hard-card scanning; as well as ultrasonic detection of non-standard documents, such as envelopes, and documents with attached "sticky notes." In addition, when a scanned image is missing due to an inadvertently folded corner (dog-ear) or a document that is extremely skewed, the Dog-Ear Detection function automatically and temporarily stops the scanning.
State-of-the-art imaging features incorporate an energy-saving LED scanning-section illumination array, Automatic Image Emphasis for text - and line-sharpening, and auto brightness and contrast optimization of scanned images – even on documents with varied paper and text colors.`
In addition to its impressive hardware performance and feature set, the KV-S1065C ships with Panasonic's latest Image Capture Plus software package. A true productivity powerhouse, Image Capture Plus automates a host of traditionally time-consuming multi-step tasks – such as rotation of documents loaded into the paper feeder in different directions.
With Image Capture Plus, users can directly scan documents into editable OCR text, or scan them as PDF, JPEG, TIFF, and bitmap files, then automatically save them into specific folders. Text-searchable PDF and PDF/A files can also be generated in a simple one-step process.
A highly versatile scanning solution for multi-purpose use in a large variety of vertical industries, the Panasonic KV-S1065C is Kofax VRS certified which reducing the time involved in manual document preparation and enhancing the quality of scanned images. It ships with both Twain and ISIS drivers.
Panasonic's KV-1065 will be shipping end of March.
