Transforms From a Desktop to Mobile Scanner for PC or Mac When Ejected From Its Desktop Docking Station
Visioneer, a leader in intelligent document imaging solutions, today announced the Strobe 500, a new mobile duplex color scanner plus docking station developed with dual platform support for Windows and Mac operating systems. The Strobe 500 has a 20-page automatic document feeder (ADF) and scans at 15 ppm/30 ipm. When undocked, the scanner can function through USB- or wall-power as a sheetfed scanner. The front feed slot accepts documents from letter/legal/A4 size to photos, receipts and plastic ID cards.
“When your office is not contained within four walls and can be anywhere you are, you need a scanner with flexibility,” said John Capurso, vice president of marketing at Visioneer. “The Strobe 500 is well-equipped for use in a wide range of business applications, possessing strong qualities of both mobile and desktop scanners. It is an exceptional value, offering high-speed, ADF document flow, and a robust software bundle to meet a wide range of business needs.”
Powered by Visioneer OneTouch technology, the scanner allows users to scan to the “destination” of their choice by pressing a single button, eliminating multiple steps usually required to save scanned documents in popular file formats. Visioneer OneTouch allows you to scan documents to your choice of 6 preset yet completely user configurable destinations. This enables your documents to be scanned with the correct settings for resolution, color, cropping, file format and then delivered to virtually any application, folder or device — all at the touch of a button. Bundled software includes Nuance PaperPort, OmniPage Pro, NewSoft Presto! BizCard, an enhanced TWAIN and WIA driver and Visioneer OneTouch with Kofax VRSTM technology. The Strobe 500 also supports Mac users with ExactScanTM, developed by ExactCODETM GmbH, a driver and capture application that integrates with the OneTouch scanning buttons, plus NewSoft Presto! PageManager, a desktop document management tool.
Healthcare, real estate, construction, financial services, insurance are just some of the occupations the Strobe 500 was designed for. Whether scanning contracts, forms, receipts, photos, ID cards, handwritten notes or virtually any document of varying size or complexity, the Strobe 500 meets the changing needs of professionals on the go.
Priced at $399.99 US List price the Strobe 500 comes complete with the ADF-equipped Docking Station.
