What’s Less than 12 oz. and Lets You Scan to the Cloud?

It’s Epson’s new WorkForce DS-30 portable color scanner ($179),  which features both one-touch scan-to-cloud capabilities and TWAIN scan driver, as well as Epson’s new Document Capture Pro software.

The WorkForce DS-30, which is designed for business use and vertical markets such as healthcare and real estate, enables users to scan directly to e-mail, FTP sites, and folders, as well as directly to popular cloud-based document storage and sharing services such as Microsoft SharePoint, Google Docs, and Evernote. Users can scan originals up to  8.5″x14″, as well as documents as small as business cards and rigid ID cards. Advanced correction tools, such as punch-hole removal, auto-sizing, and enhancing text quality and correcting image skew, are also provided.

Also of note are:

* Weighs in at just 11.5 ounces and is small enough to slip into a computer bag.
* USB powered: users can plug the WorkForce DS-30 into a laptop – no external power supply is required.
* Ccreate editable text and searchable PDFs; 600 dpi image quality.
* Includes ABBYY FineReader OCR software, NewSoftBizCard for automating scanning of business cards, and NewSoftPageManager for Mac for document management.

The WorkForce DS-30 will ship in March 2012, and will be available at retail stores and online, as well as through Epson’s own retail site, www.epsonstore.com.
