We talk about WiFi scanning all the time but is it truly something that people are doing? Several manufactures have now released the WiFi capable scanners and each one has something to offer be it speed, duplex scanning, Android, iPad or iPhone scanning. Plus each one may or may not scan to MAC OS connected via the USB Cable. Most companies are interested in MAC scanners based on our sales throughout the year. Not really sure if they are using the WiFi option.
With that said Canon has introduced the Canon DR-C225W WiFi Scanner. It has fast duplex speeds of 50 images per minute. As you can see the Canon C225W scanner is a small desktop scanner with the ability to scan hard cards or long documents up to 118 inches in length. The Canon C225W also supports up to 11X17 documents with the Patented “Folio Mode” by Canon.
Canon also posted the following and we believe the NEW Canon C225W will be a great scanner for the small office or someone who is looking for department scanning.
Ideal for your customers in legal, healthcare, financial, real estate, and more, the imageFORMULA DR-C225W scanner will help increase efficiency in small corporate workgroups or small office environments. Using the free downloadable Canon CaptureOnTouch Mobile app, the scanner’s built-in wireless capability will allow your customers to scan across various devices including mobile iOS devices such as iPads® or iPhones® and Android devices to help reduce cable clutter and broaden connectivity options. The DR-C225W scanner also simplifies the scanning process with the bundled CaptureOnTouch software, allowing customers to pre-configure routine jobs for one-touch scanning and be able to scan directly to third-party cloud applications. With a unique upright design, the DR-C225W scanner can conserve desk space and also assist your customers in converting their never-ending piles of paper documents into editable and manageable electronic files.

Canon 11 x 17 Flatbed Scanner optional add on unit
For years we have been asked to provide a low cost Flatbed option for 11X17 scanning. This has been a problem for manufactures because Canon/Fujitsu/Kodak and Panasonic always wanted to bundle the 11 x 17 flatbed with a scanner that was 70 plus pages per minute. These scanners were large and bulky with a service cost that was priced to match the scanner purchase price. Some of these scanners would cost over $5,000 dollars. In some cases these scanners would cost as much as $8,000.00
Canon has the 11 x 17 Solution!
Canon has a solution for customers looking to scan on a flatbed 11X17 and keep the cost down. The introduction of the Flatbed Unit 201 allows users to pair the Flatbed Unit 201 to any of the following scanners via a USB connection.
In most cases you can purchase the M160 with the flatbed 201 Unit for 11X17 scanning for under $2,000.00
The upside is the Canon M160 is fast at 60 pages per minute and supports up to legal size documents through the feeder. This is great for the ever day scanning of business documents, documents not bound or loose letter documents. Not to mention in most cases the 11X17 Flatbed is always used to scan books, fragile documents, magazines, photos or drawings. Again this is a great 11X17 scanning solution for under $2,000.00
On June 22, 2012 a notification was sent out by Canon to announce the discontinuation of the Canon DR-7090C scanner.
