Panasonic Introduces New Production A3 Flatbed Scanner
Monday, August 22, 2016
Panasonic System Communications Company of North America (PSCNA) has released the high-speed KV-S7097 A3 flatbed production scanner, which combines 95 page-per-minute (ppm)/190 images-per-minute (ipm) productivity with the flexibility of twin document feeders — a 200-sheet ADF for normal one-sheet originals and a flatbed for scanning books, magazines and thick documents, such as passports and appointment calendars.
"There's no substitute for speed in the high-impact industries which form our core user base," said Joseph Odore, product manager, PSCNA. "Government, health care, finance, manufacturing, transportation, insurance agencies and service bureaus all operate in demanding, workflow-intensive environments that place a premium on hardware efficiency. Panasonic's KV-S7097 scanner can help fast-track data input, digitalization and storage while increasing operator productivity, an important consideration at a time when office workforces have been downsized."
Other advanced features of the Panasonic KV-S7097 scanner include high-efficiency consecutive scanning of ADF and flatbed documents, automatic separation of scanned images from two-page book, magazine and other bound-volume spreads into discrete, single-page electronic sheets, accurate scanning of EKG monitoring sheets and similar long documents, multi-cropping for single-pass scanning of different-sized small items, and mixed document feeding with user-selectable page alignment. A built-in A3 ledger flatbed automatically switches between the sheet-fed ADF and flatbed scanner during scanning. One-touch scanning provides up to nine different frequently used scanning jobs, which can be registered for further efficiency.
The manufacturer's suggested retail price for the KV-S7097 is $8,995.
