Canon Introduces New Scanners

To help address the growing business need for document and image scanning, Canon U.S.A. is shipping its ScanFront 220 and ScanFront 220P network scanners, which were displayed at the AIIM Conference & Expo in Boston in April of this year. Both models have decent speeds, able to scan letter-sized documents at up to 26 ppm (pages per minute) or 35 ipm (images per minute), as well as capture black-and-white, grayscale and color images. Supported file formats include JPEG, TIFF, and searchable and high-compression PDF.

According to Canon officials, the new ScanFront 220 and 220P take up less desk space than most competitive models. Both scanners can be controlled via an 8.5-inch touch-screen on which users can preview documents, and both support "scan-to" destinations, including e-mail, "folder," FTP and USB. The ScanFront 220 and 220P are available now through authorized Canon dealers and resellers, though the pricing clearly puts the devices as business oriented models: the 220 starts at $1,995, while the 220P starts at $2,195.
