New Panasonic Document Scanners, KV-S8127, KV-S8147, Can Scan up to 100,000 Pages per Day


Panasonic KV-S8127 document scanner.

Panasonic System Communications Company of North America today rolled out two new high-volume production document scanners, the KV-S8127 ($14,995 SRP) and KV-S8147 ($16,500 SRP) both designed for “government, banking, service bureaus, and any high-volume scanning application.”

Supporting up to 100,000-sheet-daily duty cycles and speeds of up to 120 ppm/240 ipm (KV-S8127) and 140 ppm/280 ipm (KV-S8147), Panasonic says the new document scanners raise both image quality and productivity bars with such proprietary features as enhanced Large Scale Integrated Circuit-driven hardware image processing and “Toughfeed” mixed-media document handling with integrated mechanical de-skew and double-feed re-try.

Workflow-optimization features include long-life rollers supporting up to 600,000 scans between replacements, mixed-batch scanning of documents of various thicknesses ranging from paper-thin to cardboard, LSI hardware image-processing that eliminates the typical speed penalty when switching from 200 dpi to 300 dpi resolution scanning, and a Paper Exit Direction Selector that uses separate paths for scanning normal documents and extra-thick or specialty documents without time-wasting setup procedures.

Other features of the KV-S8100 series include specially designed sensors that identify the host computer, operating system, scanning application, measuring method, paper type, and image density, and process this information through an algorithm that determines the best balance between speed and quality for each job.

Image processing functions shared by the two models include: Automatic Brightness Adjustment, Automatic Image Emphasis, Dynamic Threshold, White Level Readings Taken Directly From Paper, Automatic Separation, Noise Reduction, Auto Preview, Auto Rescan, Dither, Error Diffusion, and Multi-color Dropout.

Both new scanners are currently available through Panasonic authorized resellers.
