Panasonic Debuts High-Volume Network Scanners Equipped with Intel Corei5 Tablet

Panasonic System Communications Company of North America (PSCNA) today introduced two new Intel Core i5-Tablet powered high-volume network scanners for government agencies, financial institutions, service bureaus, and other high-volume document-scanning applications.

The new high-volume production scanners, the KV-S827M100 ($22,292.00 MSRP) and the fastest-in-class KV-S847M100 ($24,075.00 MSRP), both available via authorized Panasonic resellers, are said to “raise the bar on network scanning speed,” with Panasonic noting that “There are no other stand alone scanners available on the market today that can scan at 120/140 ppm.” Both scanners utilize an Intel Core i5-4302Y vPro,M processor-fired Tablet with 8GB of DDR3L RAM for more efficient high-speed optical character recognition (OCR) and to fully enable customizable document handling. Both models also feature two network connectivity options: Gigabit Ethernet and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac.

A high-capacity, 750-sheet automatic document feeder coupled with Panasonic’s Toughfeed intelligent mixed-media feed control, long-paper and control-sheet detection, staple-detection, double-feed detection, dog-ear detection, double feed retry, and acoustic jam detection technology are said to enable efficient, continuous scanning, and maximum damage protection of original documents in the long-run.

Both KV-8100 scanners also incorporate Panasonic’s selectable dual transport systems, a U-turn path for scanning typical business documents, and a straight path for thicker and specialty stock. The 600,000-sheet long-life rollers also provide extended service intervals and a lower total cost of ownership.

Advanced security and device management features include Domain Network Authentication, Local User Management, Remote Administration, Local Device Address Book (LDAP), and a built-in auditing and auto document Erasure.

Other advanced performance and value features of the two new bundles include: bar-code recognition, automatic brightness adjustment, automatic image emphasis, dynamic threshold, white-level readings taken directly from paper, automatic separation, noise reduction, auto preview, auto re-scan, dither, error diffusion, multi-color dropout, optional flatbed scanning, and color duplex two-sided imaging.

“Panasonic’s Tablet-controlled scanner bundles present a significant step forward in our on-going quest to give major enterprise users and government agencies a fully networked solution. These network scanners provide an advanced platform for digitalizing and generating fully searchable PDFS, for locating, editing, and archiving large amounts of documents. Additionally, they offer users optimal image quality, unparalleled speed, and minimal workflow interruptions for error correction, periodic maintenance and hardware failure,” said Joseph Odore, product manager for PSCNA.

“End users can scan and digitize large jobs just as quickly as if the scanner was installed at their desk. Because the tablet has all the power of a dedicated PC, it provides high-speed character recognition and powerful document management that can be customized to meet the exact needs of a myriad of scanner scenarios,” comments Odore.

“Unlike many high-volume scanners the KV-S8127 (120 ppm/240 ipm) and KV-S8147 (140 ppm/280 ipm) scanner uses proprietary hardware image processing to eliminate any speed drop off when scanning at 300 dpi rather than 200 dpi. The Intel Core i5 Tablet, bundled with the scanners, features a seven-inch WXGA LED, a 10-point multi-touch screen, and supports gloved touch and gestures, as well as ships with a capacitive stylus pen with an integrated holder. The Tablet’s tight interface with the scanners enables whole jobs or individual documents to be scanned to mail, fax, Bluetooth, FTP servers, shared network folders, servers, and archival storage devices,” said Odore.
