CeBIT, HANOVER, Germany, March 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kodak today announced the launch of its latest generation production scanners - the new i5000 series - which deliver class-leading intelligent imaging, reduced total cost of ownership and future expandability.

The Kodak i5000 Series Scanners consists of two models - the i5200 rated at 140 pages per minute (ppm), and the faster i5600 able to process 170 ppm with no degradation of performance even with imaging features all switched on even at 300 dpi colour and dual stream.

With a 750 page automatic document feeder, recommended daily throughput is unlimited and an easy in the field modification means an i5200 scanner can be upgraded as volumes grow to i5600 performance without the need for customers to purchase additional hardware.

Industry-leading features

The Kodak i5000 Series Scanners offer a range of innovative features all designed to improve efficiency, enhance productivity and lower operating expenditure, including:

    - A breakthrough digital architecture optimises internal memory
      allocation which speeds up scanning, image capture and data extraction;

    - Over 30 Perfect Page imaging features such as streak filtering, dual
      stream output, auto colour detection and de-skewing result in fewer
      rescans and improved throughput and accuracy so that users can process
      more data per Euro invested;

    - User definable resolution settings support Intelligent Data Recognition
      (IDR), including OCR and intelligent character recognition (otherwise
      known as handwriting recognition).

    - SurePath and SureStack technology slash paper preparation and handling
      time - and associated staff costs - by eliminating problems feeding and
      stacking scanned documents of different weights and sizes.

The Kodak i5000 Series Scanners are simple to use thanks to an intuitive colour LCD touch screen which can be programmed to simplify common tasks, with the adjustable screen designed to increase operator comfort.

Kodak i5000 Series Scanners will be available from April 2011 at a list price of 29,995 Euros for the i5200 Scanner and 39,995 Euros for the i5600 Scanner.
