Designed for bringing easy document scanning to users on the road, Xerox is introducing its first portable document scanner capable of scanning two-sided documents in a single pass, the Xerox Duplex Travel Scanner ($119.99 retail). Compatible with both Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS computers, the Duplex Travel Scanner provides continuous feeding of pages up to 8.5″x14″ in size for creating multi-page files of one and two-sided documents.

Featuring USB power for portable use with laptops and desktop PCs, the one-pound Duplex Travel Scanner is bundled with various software for creating, organizing, and sharing searchable PDF documents; rendering image files in a variety of formats, from photographs or other graphic printed material; and enhancing the scans of tattered originals in order to produce clear and clean images. Maximum optical scan resolution is 600 dpi, while color-output depth is 24 bits.

Designed for work in an office, home, or mobile environment, the Duplex Travel Scanner accepts originals as small as 1.5″ (38mm) wide. Maximum page width is 8.5″ (216mm) and maximum page length is 32″ (813mm).

To facilitate fast setup for first-time use, the scanner is packaged with a Quick Install Guide. Its Windows-compatible software bundle includes Visioneer OneTouch, Visioneer DriverPLUS, Visioneer Acuity, Nuance PaperPort, Nuance OmniPage Pro, and Nuance PDF Converter. For Mac computers, software features include Mac TWAIN, incorporating many features of Visioneer Acuity, and Visioneer Scan Utility.

In addition to a software DVD, Quick Install Guide and USB cable, in-package accessories include a cloth carrying bag, carrier sheet (for scanning fragile originals), calibration sheet, cleaning cloth, and technical support card.

“The Xerox Duplex Travel Scanner leads the highly successful Travel Scanner series with ease of use, upgraded features and a sleeker, sturdier design,” commented Walt Thinfen, president and CEO at Visioneer, which makes and markets Xerox DocuMate Scanners. “With the inclusion of our popular software package, we’ve eliminated extra steps in scanning and the possibility of having to rescan. The Duplex Travel Scanner delivers high-quality scans, while also allowing users to organize and share their documents from virtually anywhere.”
