How to decide if the Fujitsu “A” version is the right scanner for you!
The information below will help consumers better understand the difference between the following Fujitsu scanners.
- Fi-6670 vs Fi-6670A
- Fi-6770 vs Fi-6770A
We are asked time and time again to describe the difference between a Fujitsu Fi-6670 & Fi-6670A document scanner. We are also asked this same question about the Fi-6770 & Fi-6770A scanners. To determine if the “A” version is the right scanner for you we have to talk about the documents you are scanning.
Let’s talk about the 6670 VS the 6670A Fujitsu scanners. Once we break down the differences the same applies to the 6770 & the 6770A scanner.
The Fujitsu 6670 ships with a software package called Kofax VRS Professional. The VRS is (Software VRS) and requires you to install the Kofax VRS on your OWN PC.
This software VRS version of Kofax is a tool that is bundled with every Fujitsu TWAIN Scanner in one form or fashion IE Version (Basic, Professional or Elite VRS). The software is a great tool for allowing users the ability to automatically run numerous image processing enhancements while scanning.
Some of these enhancements are;
- Crop and Deskew
- Edge Cleanup
- Automatic Color Detection
- Color Smoothing
- Auto Brightness (Analyze Color, Ignore Pictures)
- Detect Page Size
- Intelligent Rotation based on text orientation
- Delete Blank Pages
- Improved Text Recognition
- Bar Code Reading
Now for the differences; if you had to run all of these processes on your PC in order to scan color documents, documents with back ground colors, three hole punched documents or mixed front and back side documents in the same batch the PC could be tasked with keeping up with the scanner. Today’s new computers could get the job done with no problem but in most cases the PC will be tasked and not be able to keep up with the scan speeds of the Fujitsu 6670 or Fujitsu 6770 scanners thus slowing down the scanner even to a point the scanner may stop scanning in order to allow the PC time to catch up before sending more images.
To resolve the slow PC cache problem Fujitsu and Kofax introduced a hardware version of the Kofax VRS Professional/Elite software so the introduction of the “A” version was released. The “A” version Fujitsu 6670A & Fujitsu 6770A has an embedded SCSI or USB Adrenaline card on the document scanner. No need to load software on your PC or a license key for the Kofax VRS software. All of the licensing is held on the scanner Hardware Card. This would allow users the ability to scan with all or most of the image processing enhancements of the Fujitsu 6670A & 6770A scanner without tasking the PC and allowing the scanner to run in most cases at Rated Speed.
The Kofax VRS Software will work on any and all in production document scanners at this time.
