PANASONIC DEBUTS NEXT-GEN KV-S1046C-H, KV-S1065C-H MODELS OF AWARD-WINNING WORKGROUP SCANNERS[i]
New Feature-Rich Models Offer Enhanced Functionality, Greatly Improved Productivity
Newark, NJ, Sept. 10, 2013 – Panasonic, a leading provider of document imaging and scanner solutions, announced today two model upgrades to its advanced, high-output KV-Series workgroup scanners. The new KV-S1046C-H and KV-S1065C-H models incorporate enhanced auto-preview, hardware image processing, notification functions and auto rescan features that greatly simplify scanning processes while maintaining optimum scanning speeds to improve productivity for small and medium business users.
“With single-click functionality, a simple overview option and zero speed reduction image processing that improves the efficiency of scanner workflows , customers save time and greatly boost the productivity of their businesses,” said Joe Odore, Product Manager for Imaging Solutions, Panasonic. “By adding these advanced capabilities with the S1046C-H and S1065C-H to our already feature-rich workgroup scanners, demonstrates Panasonic’s continued commitment to providing innovative, cost-effective solutions for customers.”
The latest KV-S1046C-H and KV-S1065C-H enhancements further build upon the advanced image processing and power utilization features of the KV-Series, adding increased scan speeds at 300 dpi and optimizing reliability of the conventional scanning workflow. Key features include:
With single-click functionality, users can dramatically reduce the amount of time spent adjusting complex configurations from 60 seconds to 11 seconds. With one click of the button, the auto-preview function lists nine sample images allowing users to instantly select the most optimal image and obtain the best result in the least amount of time.
HW Image Processing
Conventional image processing can reduce scanning speeds by as much as 46 percent. With advanced HW image processing, users can take advantage of image processing functions without sacrificing scanning speed, and nearly double the efficiency of their scanning workflows.
Four smart notification alerts for binary/color, binary image, blank page and unique page provide advanced notification to users when documents have not scanned properly or the quality of a scanned image is less than optimal. Notifications are provided on a single overview page, eliminating the need for users to examine results one-by-one and enables workflows 20 times more efficient than conventional methods.
Comparable to auto-preview, auto-rescan allows users to quickly preview nine optional images and select the optimal choice for rescanning with the click of a button. Users benefit by eliminating the need to manually rescan documents, improving workflow efficiency by nearly 90 percent.
The upgraded KV-S1046C-H and KV-S1065C-H models feature a compact body, scanning speeds of 60 ppm[ii] or 45 ppm[iii] and are capable of scanning a variety of documents, including long, mixed paper and hard card batch scanning. The new models also include Panasonic’s proprietary Active Double-Feed Prevention, LED scanning illumination, Advanced Image Processing, and Image Capture Plus technologies (easy-to-use data formats, automatic image orientation and OCR Zone function) to provide both ease of use and fast scanning. Additionally, the new models are Kofax VRS certified and ship with both Twain and ISIS drivers.
Pricing and Availability
The KV-S1046C-H and KV-S1065C-H high-speed document scanners are available immediately at $1,295 and $1,595 MSRP through authorized Panasonic resellers starting and come with a Three-Year Advance Exchange Warranty.
