How to scan Photo’s or Fragile Documents

A question that keeps coming up year after year. How do I scan Photo’s or Fragile Documents without damaging them?

Technology has changed so much in the past two years. I was reading through previous post & comments on Linkedin.com and all have great suggestions wtih straight through paper path scanners, Flatbed Digital Copiers, Panetary Cameras and book scanners and all are great suggestions. Coming from a MicroFilm Background I love the Planetary Camera Idea.

Fujitsu took the book scanning technology, Planetary Camera and combined it with the ScanSnap Scanner and brought to market the ScanSnap SV600 scanner for a very inexpensive solutions for scanning fragile documents up to 11X17. We tested the scanner and I was very impressed the the technology built into this little LOW COST Solution.

Which scanner is right for me?

Fujitsu 6130 High Speed Document ScannerOver the years we have customer who have purchased scanners and those units are just now being replaced by the end users or they are just not working with the current PC/MAC operating system.

How do you know what the right scanner is for you? By asking questions and looking at the past and the current needs we are able to determine the right scanner for your needs. These are just a few questions that we ask to determine the right scanner for your needs.

The most important thing to discover is what your current scanning needs are.

Most of the time we talk about the current scanner you have.

  • What did you like about that scanner?
  • What did you wish it had as your needs have changed over the years.
  • Do you scan the same types of documents compared to when you purchased the scanner
  • Is the current scanner fast enough for you
  • Do you have the need for a larger feeder capacity
  • Do you want to search for text on the document
  • Do you want to edit the text on the document
  • Do you have the need for 11X17 scanning
  • Will multiple people be using this scanner
  • What software are you currently scanning with?

We need to know in order to make sure the software supports the NEW scanners.

Keep in mind we know you probably liked the current scanner and usually have no problem going with the same manufacture all over again. With that said you may want to look at other manufactures just to make sure you are getting the best deal. Today the major scanner manufactures including Canon, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Kodak offer 90 day warranties, 1 year warranties and some even offer 3 year warranties.

The Progression of scanners over the years is hard to follow especially if you are not in the industry. At Scanner One, Inc. we have all of the scanners listed out to show discontinued scanners and then the scanner that replaced the discontinued scanner. In most cases we go back 3 generation of scanners and some cases 4 generations of past scanners.

An examples from Fujitsu would be the 4120/5120/6130/6130Z progression.

If someone purchased the Fujitsu Fi-4120 that scanner was 25 pages per minute. It was replaced by the Fi-5120 that was 25 pages per minute. The Fi-5120 was replaced by the Fujitsu Fi-6130 at 40 pages per minute and that unit was replaced by the Fi-6130Z again 40 pages per minute. Most people would say that is a huge progression over the years especially to go from 25 pages per minute to 40 pages per minute. The cost must have gone up dramatically. That was not the case, Fujitsu increased the speed of these scanners but did not raise the price of the scanners or the service for the scanner.

Canon is the same when it comes to upgrading the scanners. Take the 3060/3080/3080CII/4010/6010/M160. 

If you purchased the Canon DR-3060 at 30 pages per minute you were using a state of the art scanner. That unit was replaced by the Canon DR-3080 at 40 pages per minute. Then it was replaced by the 3080CII for USB Connectivity. That unit was replaced by the 4010C again at 40 pages per minute. Then the DR-6010C was introduced at 60 Pages Per minute. Again pricing did not go up and the scanner speeds did. Canon once again followed up with a 60 page per minute scanner at a lower cost. This unit is now called the Canon DR-M160. Most people have a hard time believing you can get a 60 page per minute Duplex Color scanner for under $1,000 (a grand) but you can.

The motto Canon USA is boasting is “MORE for LESS”. I have to say it is working for them.

If you are looking for a replacement scanner and just are not sure what scanner to purchase. Give us a call. We have all of the scanners on our site and can show you the progression from your older discontinued scanner to the current model. We can even cross reference current scanner manufactures to make sure you get the best scanner for your needs.

Don’t forget to ask about our award winning scanner service for your next purchase.

We are asked all the time for short term scanner leases on high end document scanners. Customers are always looking to rent document scanners on a short term project basis that will provide high-end quality scans. Especially if the scanner is only used for a month to 3 months for a back file scan project. In most cases a scanner rental is a one-time project, allowing the customer to purchase a small desktop Canon scanner, Fujitsu scanner, Panasonic Scanner or Epson Scanner for day forward scanning of daily work.

Most companies are looking to scan Medical Files, Lease Documents, Financials, Contracts, HR Files, Invoices, Purchase Orders, service records and the list goes on and on. These are files that are stored in File Cabinets around the office or stored off site in banker boxes. The cost to retrieve the files is rising and the cost of office/storage space is on the rise. Hard Drive Space & Server Space and now CLOUD Storage is manageable and most companies are able to offset the traditional storage cost for the new electronic document storage option.  No more unorganized stacks of paper!

Software companies that Scanner One, Inc. has affiliations with:

  • Document Logistix
  • DocuWare
  • On-Base Highland Software
  • File Bound
  • LaserFiche
  • Fortis
  • Digitech Systems
  • Box One Cloud
  • Kofax Express
  • Abbyy

Other factors to rent a scanner; Moving your office, reduction in paper storage, loss of staff, organize your documents, legal, compliance, collaboration.

When it comes to renting scanners, Scanner One, Inc. has many options from the desktop 1,000 max pages per day to the high end document scanning of 60,000 + pages per day.

In the end, through questioning we determined the customer is not looking for a high end scanner short term lease.  They’re in need of a short term scanner rental.  Call Scanner One, Inc. to talk about your back file project and the rental scanner that would work best for your situation.

Compare Fujitsu Scanners – 6670 vs 6670A | 6770 vs 6770A

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.  To review the list of scanners and type of Kofax Software available for your scanner visit the Kofax Web site Scanner Configurator link provided http://scadmin.kofax.com/KCSearch/ or call us at Scanner One, Inc. to answer your Kofax or Fujitsu 6670/6670A, Fujitsu 6770/6770A scanner questions.

Please feel free to call on us 888-395-8570. We offer Fujitsu Service for these scanners as well as Kofax Support for all Kofax Software.
