VISIONEER EXPANDS GSA/TAA COMPLIANT PATRIOT SCANNER LINEUP

FOR GOVERNMENT AGENCIES

Document Capture Product-Line Addresses Regulatory Compliance Starting At Under $600

MCLEAN, Virginia - June 14, 2006 - Visioneer, a leader in intelligent imaging solutions, today announced two new GSA/TAA-compliant high-speed, ADF scanners designed to address desktop and departmental scanning needs for a broad range of government agency applications.   The new Visioneer Patriot 680 and Visioneer Patriot 430 scanners were unveiled today at the 13th Annual Washington Technology Top 100 Conference. The new scanners complement the Visioneer Patriot 780 and Visioneer Patriot 470 document scanners and the Visioneer NetScan 2000 scan server, forming a complete line of scanners and network scanning solutions.

“Today’s public sector is facing a difficult task in managing the large and rapidly increasing volume of paper and electronic information within various departments,” said Don F. McMahan, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Visioneer. “Visioneer’s Patriot product-line is designed to improve records management productivity and regulatory compliance requirements utilizing Visioneer’s award-winning OneTouch technology for ease-of-use. When a Visioneer Patriot scanner is connected to a NetScan 2000 scan server it creates a highly efficient and cost-effective network scanning solution whereby the user can load their document, press a button to scan their document and retrieve their paper in one visit to the scanner, rather than two trips with conventional devices.”

New Patriot Scanners

The Visioneer Patriot 680 is a duplex flatbed scanner that was designed specifically for departmental use and can be programmed to automatically scan up to 99 different destinations and be customized for each person or workflow in the department.  The Visioneer Patriot 680 also has an 8.5” x 14.5” flatbed that can accommodate documents up to legal size and scans up to 80 images per minute (ipm) for double-sided documents.

The Visioneer Patriot 430 is a small, easy-to-use, color sheetfed scanner designed for desktop use that scans double-sided documents at speeds up to 30 images per minute.  It is a great fit for enterprises who are interested in distributed scanning solutions and want to place smaller scanners in many locations as an alternative or in addition to centralized, high-volume scanning operations   The scanner includes X1 Technologies Desktop Search that enables users to scan, store and locate any file, e-mail message, attachment or searchable PDF scanned document instantly.

Robust Product-Line for Every Budget

Visioneer’s complete Patriot product line spans the workgroup to production segments for U.S. Government agencies and private sector users who require GSA/TAA-compliant products that are fast, cost-effective and easy-to-use.

Powerful Software Suite

The entire Patriot product-line incorporates Visioneer OneTouch™ technology for eliminating multiple steps in sending scanned documents to predetermined applications or devices.  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.

RoHs Compliance

In an effort to meet the RoHS environmental requirements (Directive 2002/95/EC on the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances), Visioneer’s entire Patriot line exhibits lead-free power supplies, motherboards and chassis. The directive requires that electronics products shipped in the European Union (EU) eliminate or minimize several chemical compounds, including lead and mercury.
