$1300 for a scanner? At that price you’d think to would do all the work for you, and it mostly does you just have to feed it..
Panasonic, a provider of document imaging and scanner solutions, introduced the KV-S1046C document scanner, ideal for small- and medium-size office settings, including reception areas at healthcare facilities, banks and other businesses. The feature-rich device has a fast scanning speed of 45ppm*, and is capable of scanning documents of various sizes and thicknesses, helping reduce the number of devices needed to digitize data.
“With the introduction of the KV-S1046C document scanner, we are helping end-users provide fast, accurate customer service, while lowering the cost of handling documents and reducing the space needed to store them.”
The KV-S1046C document scanner is designed to combine paper documents along with up to three hard embossed cards, such as a driver’s license, in a single batch by using the mixed card batch guide. This practical and time-saving capability is useful in reception areas at small healthcare practices, at the point of patient check-in. The scanner also features a mode for scanning long papers, such as electrocardiograms.
“One of the biggest challenges for SMBs is document management and digitizing existing paper materials,” said Joseph Odore, product manager for document and imaging solutions at Panasonic. “With the introduction of the KV-S1046C document scanner, we are helping end-users provide fast, accurate customer service, while lowering the cost of handling documents and reducing the space needed to store them.”
Double-Feed Skip Function
The scanner is equipped with a highly reliable ultrasonic sensor that prevents double-feeding problems. When scanning stops due to documents, such as envelopes or sticky notes, that trigger the sensor, users can simply press the ‘Skip’ key to resume scanning.
Image Capture Plus and Kofax® VirtualReScan® (VRS) Elite Software
The KV-S1046C document scanner comes standard with Panasonic’s Image Capture Plus software, an application that transfers image data scanned by a Panasonic high-speed document scanner to a PC in the form of an image file. Using thumbnails, the intuitive software lets users edit scanned images, including switching and/or deleting pages. It also allows users to choose settings that facilitate complex scanning processes, and it serves as a powerful tool for efficiently processing routine business work, such as filing large amounts of paper found in tight office spaces.
In addition, Panasonic’s KV-S1046C-V document scanner is certified with Kofax® VirtualReScan® (VRS) Elite software that automatically applies proper scan settings and cleans scanned images. This improves the accuracy of optical character recognition (OCR) and handwriting recognition (ICR) software, reduces file sizes and minimizes document preparation tasks and manual activities that can potentially cost organizations time and money.
Simplified Maintenance and Low Power Consumption
The clamshell design of the KV-S1046C scanner allows full access to the entire paper path for simplified paper jam resolution, scan glass cleaning and roller replacement. This innovative design minimizes the need for technician support. The scanning section of the device uses LEDs for its light source to lower power consumption during the scanning process. In addition, in order to conserve energy, the power consumption is suppressed to a 1 Watt maximum during sleep mode. Finally, the power automatically turns off after a pre-selected duration of time to cut down on electricity use.
Pricing and Availability
The KV-S1046C high-speed document scanner is available immediately through authorized Panasonic resellers starting at $1,295 MSRP (KV-S1046C-V starts at $1,425 MSRP), and it comes with a Three-Year Advance Exchange Warranty.
