Canon has launched a new USB-powered scanner that can be used for small or home-office environments and for professionals who work remotely.
The new compact portable scanner is compatible with both Mac and PC operating systems and supports mobile working with the ability to scan directly to cloud-hosted applications such as GoogleDocs™, Evernote and SharePoint.
Powered by a single USB cable, the imageFORMULA P-215 can scan up to 15 pages per minute and capture both sides of a document in a single pass.
The scanner incorporates an automatic document feeder that is capable of handling up to 20 sheets, saving time when scanning documents containing multiple pages.
Workers can use the P-215 instantly without the need to install additional drivers or software thanks to its built-in CaptureOnTouch Lite software. The P-215 also includes ISIS/TWAIN drivers for Windows users and a TWAIN driver for Mac users for industry-standard connectivity and use with a variety of imaging applications.
The P-215 incorporates a special card feeder slot for scanning thick plastic ID and embossed cards, which is particularly useful for industries such as insurance and financial services where proof of ID is required when registering new client accounts or closing deals.
The ability to scan directly to the central office or to applications hosted in the cloud means that you can work more productively - no matter where you find yourself.
High quality scanning is ensured with an optical resolution up to 600dpi and advanced image processing features such as auto page size detection, de-skew, auto text orientation and colour detection.
The new portable scanner also comes with a variety of powerful software applications, such as CaptureOnTouch, that offers improved image processing and for scanning to multiple file formats such as PDF, PDF/A, TIFF, JPEG and PowerPoint. PageManager (Mac) and PaperPort (PC) together with BizCard software help to maintain efficient file management of digitalised documents, making the P-215 scanner a truly powerful, portable and effective scanning solution.
