Pleasanton, CALIFORNIA - July 14, 2003 - Visioneer, Inc., a leader in intelligent imaging solutions, today announced the new Visioneer 9750 PDF workgroup scanner, the first 20 page per minute color flatbed scanner with 50 page ADF targeted at the distributed scanning segment. Designed with 3 programmable buttons that instantly scan, copy or email any document, the 9750 PDF is a powerful productivity tool. The scanner features 600x1200dpi optical resolution, 48-bit color, a hi-speed USB 2.0 interface and comes bundled with ScanSoft® PaperPort Deluxe® 9.0, TextBridge® Pro 9.0 and ArcSoft PhotoImpression all for only $999.99.

"Visioneer is at the forefront of integrating easy to use scan-to-PDF functionality to instantly convert piles of paper into organized PDF files, creating a powerful document imaging scanner solution," said Robert Weideman, chief marketing officer for ScanSoft.

Scan any document to Adobe® Portable Document Format (PDF) using ScanSoft PaperPort Deluxe 9 included with the Visioneer 9750 PDF scanner. PDF, a universal file format that preserves all the fonts, formatting, graphics, and color of any source document, regardless of the application and platform used to create it, is the native file format in this new release of PaperPort Deluxe. Adobe PDF files are compact and can be shared, viewed, navigated, and printed exactly as intended by anyone with the free Adobe Acrobat® Reader® software downloadable at

The 9750 PDF includes Visioneer's award-winning OneTouch Technology, which allows users to configure the scanner to perform common scanning tasks at the touch of a button. Button defaults are email, copy and scan, but advanced users can quickly learn to customize the buttons for even more power and specific functionality.

"As businesses continue to migrate towards decentralized scanning solutions we feel that it is more important than ever to develop scanners that are not only affordable and efficient but easy to use," said Murray L. Dennis, CEO of Visioneer, Inc. "Our new 9750 PDF was designed to be a powerful productivity tool that would require little or no training. We designed the ADF to feed paper through a "C" curve giving it one of the smallest desktop footprints on the market and does not require users to install a separate SCSI card increasing IT support demands. We believe this is the ideal product to meet the needs of the distributed workgroup scanning category."

The Visioneer 9750 PDF features 600x1200 dpi optical resolution, 48-bit color, Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface and a TWAIN driver. The scanner's flatbed accommodates photos, books, or fragile items, while the automatic document feeder handles a wide variety of papers, ranging from small 3x5 cards to legal documents 14 inches in length.
