A Scanner for Automation and Legal Software Fans
How can you tell a TechnoLawyer NewsWire subscriber from a normal person? The former gets worked up about scanners, whereas the latter gets worked up about the latest plot twist on Jersey Shore. Accordingly, since you gotta know your customer, I confess to knowing nothing about The Situation and Snooki, but I know about every new scanner that surfaces. So last Friday when you were toasting Thomas Jefferson with your first Independence Day weekend beer (brewed in America I hope), I was reading a press release about and poring through the specifications of the latest scanner for the small business market. I hope you appreciate my dedication.
Kodak SCANMATE i920 … in One Sentence
The Kodak SCANMATE i920 is a sheetfed USB duplex document scanner.
The Killer Feature
The legal world is split into two camps on many fronts. Small versus large firms. Litigators versus transactional lawyers. Word versus WordPerfect fans. And in the world of scanning, those who need TWAIN and ISIS support and those who don't.
The SCANMATE i920 supports TWAIN and ISIS (WIA too), enabling you to go beyond the bundled programs and scan directly into many document management, legal, OCR, and other specialized applications.
Other Notable Features
The SCANMATE i920 has a small footprint (3.1 inches high and 4.2 inches deep), and weighs 2.7 pounds. At 200 dpi, it scans duplex at 15 pages per minutes for color and 20 for black and white. You can scan at resolutions up to 600 dpi. The automatic document feeder holds up to 20 sheets of paper of varying sizes.
The scanner automatically rotates, straightens, crops, brightens, and skips blank pages. You can output scans in PDF, TIFF, JPEG, RTF, and BMP formats. The bundled OCR software can create searchable RTF and PDF files.
The SCANMATE i920's Smart Touch button enables you to automatically route scanned documents. You can configure up to nine functions such as email, print, file, etc. Smart Touch integrates with any application such as Microsoft SharePoint. It can also automatically name your scanned documents.
What Else Should You Know?
The SCANMATE i920 works with Windows PCs. Kodak's MSRP is $395 though a quick search shows it selling as of today for as little as $310 from reputable retailers. Learn more about the Kodak SCANMATE i920 Scanner.
