KODAK i3000 Series Scanners Raise the Bar on Productivity for Desktop Capture with Powerful Features and Compact Size

January 22, 2013 — Kodak announces today the availability of the all new, compact and uniquely designed KODAK i3000 Series Scanners for use in any office environment with business processes that require robust data extraction from paper documents. Able to scan up to A3, two models complete the series, the KODAK i3200 Scanner and KODAK i3400 Scanner.

The KODAK i3000 Series Scanners redefine business productivity for desktop document capture with ease of use that harnesses the power and performance once reserved for scanning environments with dedicated operators.

Hauke Fast, EAMER product marketing manager, document imaging, said, "With a small footprint of just 43 x 37 cm, these compact A3 desktop scanners pack a powerful punch that delivers greater productivity for any desktop user. Affordable and capable, the i3000 Series Scanners help businesses gain control over manual, paper-based processes and integrate them into existing workflows that improve the way professionals capture, share and distribute information within their organisation."

User functionality is supported by a graphic user panel that displays messages that relate to job name or job status. Businesses may customise these messages to request additional action related to scanned documents. Software integrators and providers can also use the intuitive feature to simplify how their application works with the scanners by displaying job shortcuts assigned to preconfigured settings such as colour, file type and file destination. The i3200 Scanner and i3400 Scanner are compatible with TWAIN, ISIS and Linux-based applications for easy setup and integration into existing scanning programs.

The i3000 Series Scanners combine heavy-duty document handling with advanced image enhancement capabilities through Kodak's Perfect Page technology, which makes them some of the most productive offerings in their class. The i3000 Series Scanners produce high-resolution images in colour and black and white, simplex or duplex even at 300 dots per inch (dpi) at throughput speeds of up to 80 pages per minute (ppm). Equipped with a 250-sheet feeder/elevator, the i3200 and i3400 each handle documents from a reliable paper transport that optimally positions documents for maximum image clarity as they are captured by the scanners' imaging cameras. Dual LED illumination also aids in providing image clarity and colour stability as well as quick scanning starts.

Users also benefit from the versatility of two paper path options. The i3000 Series offer a traditional front exit or an optional rear exit on the back of the scanner. This functional choice gives users the flexibility to select the best method of paper transport according to a document's length and thickness.

The i3200 Scanner and the i3400 Scanner also support both the KODAK Legal Size (A4) Flatbed Accessory and the KODAK A3 Size Flatbed Accessory to handle additional media options. A post-scan rear-side imprinter is also available as an option.

The i3000 Series Scanners include Kodak's Intelligent Document Protection feature, which extends the paper jam protection provided from Kodak's Ultrasonic Multi-Feed detection. The new capability helps protect documents from physical damage by automatically pausing the paper transport and allowing the user to take appropriate action if the scanner detects the start of damage to a document.

The Kodak i3200 and i3400 are available immediately with list prices of €3,495 and €4,995 respectively. Both units come with a 3 Year Advance Unit Replacement warranty*.
