Bremen, February 01, 2013 - The Imaging Source, an international manufacturer of imaging hardware and software, announces today the immediate availability of their high speed, portable document scanner, Scan2Docx.
Scan2Docx is an all-in-one, high-resolution portable document scanner bundled with intuitive software. It scans all kinds of objects, including books, magazines, receipts, business cards, letters and 3D models.
Thanks to its small size and very light weight (500 g / 1.2 lb), it is easily transported and suited for use at home, in the office and on the go. The document scanner is fitted with a 5MP camera head and can scan an entire page in only 2 seconds. Unlike traditional desktop document scanners, Scan2Docx's large depth of field allows thick books and folders to stay perfectly in focus while they are being scanned. Different electrical systems are also not a concern because the document scanner is ready to use as soon as it is plugged into the USB port of a computer. An additional power supply unit is not required.
The shipped software is highly intuitive and very easy to use. Scanning a document is a matter of clicking on the Scan icon, or pressing the optional footswitch (sold separately). All necessary functions to scan, archive, copy and print documents are within easy reach in the software's main toolbar. Scanned documents can be converted to editable text using the built in, powerful OCR capabilities of the document scanner. Image enhancement filters are shipped as standard, with which the scanned image can be flipped horizontally and vertically or made sharper. The Auto Contrast filter is available to ensure the black of text is deep black in the scanned image and the background color is bright white. The Auto Color filter process the image to ensure life-like color nuances in the scanned image.
The Imaging Source is a multi-national enterprise with branches in the USA, Germany and Taiwan. They have been manufacturing products for machine vision applications for more than 25 years. Their industrial machine vision cameras, frame grabbers and video converters have become synonymous with quality and longevity. They, however, continue to innovate and create revolutionary new technologies. After extensive market research, they found out that the quality and price of document scanners fluctuates dramatically and that high-priced document scanners do not necessarily guarantee high speed, high resolution and exceptional quality. As a consequence, The Imaging Source decided to develop and produce a series of high quality document scanners and to sell them at an affordable price. The resulting Scan2Docx portable document scanner combines a high quality camera, leading edge technology and advanced image processing software.
