Product Review
This article evaluates compact scanners from Kodak. KODAK i30 Scanner supports high scanning speeds of 25ppm in mono and full color (at 200dpi single sided) while its brother, the KODAK i40 Scanner allows scanning of both sides of a document simultaneously (duplex) with up to 50ipm in mono and color. The short automatic document feeder with a capacity of up to 50 DIN-A4 sheets prevents jamming and feeds smoothly a wide variety of documents with different qualities and sizes. The two scanners fit easily on a desktop and Kodak emphasizes ease of use for inexperienced or infrequent users. All features like paper size detection, deskew, cropping, multi feed detection and intelligent thresholding are standard and fully automatic. Both have Kodak's Perfect Page Scanning image processing technology. This includes state-of-the-art features, which allow scanning documents of different sizes, orientations, contrasts and colors automatically. Even the most challenging and mixed documents are scanned without the need to change the scanner settings. The function also increases the readability and character recognition of scanned documents significantly and improves the productivity of the scanners because it operates at full scanning speed, and simplifies the operation for users at the same time. These small scanners feature a 600dpi optical resolution and electronic color drop-out for forms processing. They also support a wide range of scanning applications with the bundled Kodak-developed TWAIN and ISIS drivers.
