Canon sets the standard with two new production scanners

  • 17 November, 2003 12:44

<p>Two new durable high-volume scanners provide speed, functionality and ease-of-use at an attractive price</p>
<p>Key Points:
· DR-6080 is a 60ppm black &amp; white, greyscale duplex scanner
· DR-9080C is a 50ppm full colour and 90ppm black &amp; white, greyscale duplex scanner</p>
<p>Sydney, 17 November 2003 – Canon, the global leader in business imaging solutions, today announced the availability of the DR-6080 and DR-9080C scanners, which enhance productivity and quality for high-volume users while remaining incredibly well priced and simple to maintain.</p>
<p>The new DR-9080C is capable of scanning up to 90 pages per minute (ppm) in black &amp; white &amp; greyscale and up to 50ppm in full colour, while the DR-6080 effortlessly scans up to 60ppm in black &amp; white. Both scanners are remarkably compact for their category and maintain their rated speeds in duplex mode while scanning at up to 600dpi.</p>
<p>Peter Matthews, National Product Manager, Business Imaging and Solutions Group, Canon Australia, says Canon’s new scanners offer reliability and durability for the most demanding users.</p>
<p>“The DR-6080 and DR-9080C provide enhanced quality and high speed for large-scale scanning runs at a fantastic price,” said Mr. Matthews. “Canon has also added a number of new features to minimise common problems associated with large jobs, such as feeder jams, making scanning complex jobs simple.”</p>
<p>Adding to the reliability and ease-of-use of these units is the capability to scan documents of varying sizes and mediums in a single batch, reducing the time necessary to organise the pages and monitor the process. The devices are capable of a maximum of 6,000,000 scans and feature user-swappable feed rollers for easy replacement.</p>
<p>Canon’s new scanners are equipped with more image improving qualities than ever before, such as the Advanced Text Enhancement and smoothing functions designed to make words more legible and images sharper. In addition, a built-in shading plate maximises image quality by eliminating unwanted lines or shading due to wrinkled or imperfect originals, delivering superior quality from previously challenging jobs. Other important new features include staple and double-feed detection, which stops scanning when staples or doubled-up pages are sensed in the feeder.</p>
<p>Both the DR-9080C and DR-6080 come bundled with ISIS and TWAIN drivers as well as Canon’s new scanning utility software, Capture Perfect 2.0. This new software can save scanned images as PDF files, will scan directly to email, and has a character recognition function, which reads the direction of letters on the page and automatically rotates the image to the correct up-right position</p>
<p>Available from Canon resellers on 17 November, the DR-6080 and DR-9080C will sell for $13,750 RRP and $17,050 RRP (inc. GST) respectively.</p>
