Panasonic Unveils New Workgroup Document Scanners

High Speed Document Processing and Introduction of Nuance® PaperPort® 14 Professional Software Drives Business Imaging Efficiencies

NEWARK, N.J.--()--Panasonic, a provider of industry leading document management and imaging solutions, announced today its new KV-S1057C and KV-S1027C workgroup document scanners. The scanners’ small footprint design allows it to conveniently fit into small spaces, such as counter tops in reception areas of a bank or hospital. The new models deliver improved scanning speeds and new paper feed mechanisms offering fast, reliable scanning of not only paper documents but additional items such as embossed ID cards or passports. This enables customers to scan their own documents quickly enabling real-time information sharing to help provide fast and accurate service.

Ideal for workgroup scanning applications, especially with mixed weight and thickness, and coupled with Panasonic's industry-leading durability and robust paperfeed mechanism, the new scanners are an optimal choice for applications in healthcare, legal, finance, insurance and government. Specific use cases include passport scanning; multiple embossed card feeding; mixed paper and hard card batch scanning, and long-paper scanning such as electrocardiograms for healthcare environments.

“The new Panasonic scanners feature an enhanced feed mechanism and LCD display which creates a more reliable and efficient scanning experience, and with improved rollers, the new models will likely require less maintenance saving my customers time and money,” said Derek Hiner, Imagetek, a Panasonic authorized Value-Added Reseller. “These new scanners will be a great solution for many of my customers and would be ideal for courthouses, small to medium-sized insurance companies, banks, hospitals and healthcare offices.”

The new KV-S1057C and KV-S1027C scanners include additional new features, such as:

  • High-Speed, High-Volume Duplex Scanning: Up to 100 sheets can easily and quickly be loaded and processed.
  • Reliable Paper Feed Mechanism: The active double feed roller mechanism and long-life rollers are designed to improve feeding—even with mixed documents of varying weight or thickness. The gate mechanism ensures paper loaded into the feeder is straight and aligned to prevent paper jams or the loss of originals.
  • Various Document and Card Scanning: Efficiently scans various documents such as passports, embossed cards (up to three), envelopes, mixed paper and long paper items such as electrocardiograms or well logs.
  • 100 Programmable Workflows: Through the PC client, users can program up to 100 commonly used scan jobs. These settings can then be easily accessed and selected using the scanners control panel.
  • Intelligent Double-Feed Detection: No need to duplicate efforts or stop jobs due to double feeds from a document with a post-it note or receipt detected. Easily resume scanning from the point of detection at the push of a button.

“Businesses are always looking for new ways to operate more efficiently and accurately,” said Joseph Odore, Product Manager for Imaging Solutions, Panasonic. “With the introduction of the new KV-S1057C and KV-S1027C scanners, we’ve developed a small footprint scanner that can sit atop a desktop, yet is durable, reliable and offers customers the flexibility to scan a wide variety of documents from an ID card to a passport quickly and reliably.”
