New Fujitsu Scanner a Truly Portable Solution

Submitted by on January 4, 2011 – 11:08 amNo Comment

The ScanSnap S1100 is the new portable document scanner from Fujitsu. It’s small size and light weight make it very suitable for home office environments, but it’s also great for road warriors, whose work requires the document scanning and management capabilities of a regular office – but on the road, in whatever location or at whatever time is required.

As you will see in the above video, it is a ‘single sheet at a time’ device (no auto feeder) that handles a B&W or colour document with a single button push.

The ScanSnap doesn’t care what size the document is, either, as it will scan a very small or an oversized document with pretty much equal ease.

The small, new S1100 is powered by USB connection, so there are no extra cables or transformers to carry. It works with either Windows or Mac. Using a simple on-screen ‘Quick Menu’, you can save the scan file wherever you wish, or you can convert scans to PDF (with handy search capabilities) or JPG photo formats, among others.

The device can also send scanned documents directly to Microsoft Word or Excel for further manipulation, or the scan can be attached to outbound e-mails or sent directly to a printer. Documents can also be ‘scanned to the cloud’ and sent, for example, to Google Docs for online sharing, storage or other purposes.

ScanSnap S1100

We're not doing counterfeiting, but the ScanSnap S1100 handles heavy stock well.

The scanner comes with a software productivity bundle that adds pdf management tools, business card indexing & data export capabilities, along with an electronic filing cabinet program for organizing documents of various types.

The scanner can detect paper size, from a business card to a legal sized sheet, automatically, and as you will see in the video, there is a solution for larger, oversized documents as well. The device auto detects B&W, colour or greyscale (and even blank) documents, using the most appropriate scanning algorithm and image resolution settings (up to 600 dpi).

The unit will be priced around $200; there is an optional carry case and oversize document carrier pack available, as well.

So, check out our video to see the scanner in action, and visit http://www.fujitsu.ca/scansnap for more information.
