|Kodak Expands Its Product Portfolio With The sceyeX Digital Document Camera For Flexible And Mobile Scanning Solutions|

Kodak recently announced that it is expanding its already comprehensive document imaging portfolio by adding an innovative new product - the sceyeX - a digital document camera that "photographs" documents instead of scanning them.
This professional document camera is ideal for a growing market which needs flexible and mobile scanning solutions, where depending upon the application, taking a "picture" of a single document can actually be faster than scanning the page conventionally. Using the sceyeX, within just 2 seconds the document is captured, de-skewed, cropped and displayed on the computer screen.
The sceyeX is simply placed on a desk, connected via its USB cable to a computer and once opened is then ready for use. A laser projects a rectangle onto the desk surface into which documents are then placed. The device can "scan" documents from business cards up to DIN-A4, but in addition it can capture areas of oversized documents such as large technical drawings. The sceyeX is therefore ideal for single sheets, stapled pages, the contents of folders and binders and even books and magazines. Documents can be "scanned" at different resolutions from 100 to 400dpi in black & white, greyscale and colour and can be created as single or multi-page TIFFs, JPEGs etc.
In addition to the TWAIN-driver bundle, it also features sceye-Autoscan, which captures documents fully automatically. Once a document has been placed in the area under the camera, it will be read. No additional "scan" command via mouse or keyboard is needed. The sceyeX supports all current Windows platforms and Mac OS X.
A highlight of the sceyeX is the exceptional image quality and it is particularly suited for the recognition of small fonts and bar codes and comes with an integrated LED-based document illumination. It has an extremely small footprint and since the device is USB powered, it is therefore excellent for mobile use and even comes with its own carry bag. Also, unlike conventional scanners, sceyeX is maintenance-and wear-free.
Hauke Fast, EAMER Products Marketing Manager, Document Imaging, Kodak's Business Solutions and Services Group, commented, "The sceyeX is a perfect fit within Kodak's existing product range as it is ideal for accountants, auditors and others who need a truly mobile solution for capturing a wide variety of business documents quickly and efficiently."
The portable sceyeX document camera is available from Kodak distribution partners, and costs, including software, carrying case and three years warranty is only €799 plus VAT.
