Visioneer Brings GSA/TAA-Compliant A3 Scanning to Government Agencies Below the $5,000 Mark

PHILADELPHIA - AIIM 2006 (Booth #201) - May 16, 2006 - Visioneer, a leader in intelligent imaging solutions, today announced at the AIIM Conference and Exposition a new GSA/TAA-compliant high-speed, flatbed/ADF scanner designed to address production scanning needs for a broad range of vertical business applications. The Visioneer PatriotT 780 is equipped with an A3-sized flatbed that can accommodate documents up to 11.7" x 17" on the glass or through the automatic document feeder. It scans 80 images per minute (ipm) for double-sided documents and the included software bundle allows users to automatically scan to searchable PDF, which greatly enhances both indexing and archiving processes since the scanned document is already searchable by content. By combining the Visioneer Patriot 780, the Visioneer 470 and upcoming new products announcements in June, Visioneer will form a broad line of scanners under the Patriot name that span from the workgroup to departmental to production segments specifically for U.S. Government agencies and private sector users who require GSA/TAA-compliant products.

The Visioneer Patriot 780 will be shown for the first time during the AIIM Conference and Exposition in Philadelphia, this week, in Visioneer's booth #201.

“The Patriot 780 is the only duplex A3 flatbed production scanner available today for under $5000,” said Don F. McMahan, executive vice president of sales, marketing and support at Visioneer. “We are very pleased that we can now offer our customers a single vendor solution for all of their document capture requirements - from workgroup all the way up to low-volume production scanners.”

Patriot 780 Low Volume Production Scanner

The Visioneer Patriot 780 scans at 40ppm/80ipm at 200 dpi monochrome and grayscale. It offers an optical resolution of 600 dpi, 48-bit internal color, a hi-speed USB 2.0 interface (USB 1.1 compatible), and a suite of bundled software applications and utilities. These include TWAIN and ISIS certified drivers, Kofax VRS software, ScanSoft PaperPort Professional, and ScanSoft OmniPage Pro. The 150-page capacity automatic document feeder can handle paper and photos from business cards up to legal-sized documents.

Powerful Software Suite

Scanning to searchable PDF maintains the visual integrity of the original document, with a hidden searchable layer. This allows for low-cost conversion from paper to PDF, while permitting easy distribution and ability to search, link, select/copy and index the text.

Kofax’s award-winning VirtualReScan™ software improves image quality and increases overall efficiency of the scanning process for document management applications. ScanSoft PaperPort 10 Professional enables PDF files to be created from any Microsoft Windows application, without the need for additional PDF creation, editing or viewing software. ScanSoft OmniPage Pro is a powerful optical character recognition productivity tool that delivers accurate and precise image-to-text conversion.

The Visioneer Patriot 780 includes an ISIS driver certified by Pixel Translations and an advanced TWAIN driver developed by JFL Peripheral Solutions to ensure that the scanner will communicate effectively with enterprise content management and document image management software solutions.
