“Businesses that establish a standard platform for digitizing information from their unstructured paper documents, can save time, money and more effectively meet their customers’ needs,” said Tony Barbeau, Vice President, Marketing, Document Imaging, Business Solutions and Services, Eastman Kodak Company. “With one of the broadest selections of document imaging products, solutions and services available, Kodak makes it easier for more businesses and organizations to implement dedicated systems that increase the efficiency of document dependent processes.”
The portfolio of KODAK Scanners, a standard choice for many end users, service providers and resellers, now includes the KODAK Scan Station 500 and the KODAK i730 Scanner and KODAK i750 Scanner. The Scan Station 500, a networked scanner, combines the power and performance of a dedicated document scanner with the convenience of a multifunction device. The capture system provides improved ease of use with an innovative touch interface, making operations easier and enabling better control over file distribution and sharing. The Scan Station 500 also features an enhanced eight inch touch screen, as well as Kodak’s exclusive Voice Attachment feature that allows users to send personalized comments or instructions with scanned documents.
For document workflows that demand a more robust capture point, the KODAK i730 and i750 Scanners offer end users a high performance, mid volume production scanner capable of scanning large volumes of documents at speeds normally associated with 200 dots per inch (dpi), into images with quality of 300 dpi. This level of performance delivers true productivity in real world environments by enabling intelligent image processing functions, such as optical character recognition (OCR) at fast production speeds.
Kodak will also showcase a new addition to its software offerings, KODAK Capture Desktop Software. Built on the same infrastructure as KODAK Capture Pro Software, Capture Desktop Software provides users with an entry level batch capture application specifically designed to increase productivity for distributed scanners.

Capture Desktop Software will be shipped at no extra cost with the purchase of a distributed capture KODAK Scanner.
