Source: Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc.

Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., one of the market leader in document imaging scanners and services, recently announced the introduction of its first network scanner into its award-winning line of scanning solutions. The Fujitsu fi-6000NS Color Duplex Network Scanner is the first Fujitsu scanner to combine the intuitive, easy installation of a desktop scanner with the productivity of a network scanner for sharing documents in today's multi-location, global business environment. The Fujitsu fi-6000NS will be on display this week at the 2007 AIIM Conference & Expo, April 16-19, at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

In today's increasingly complex "connected" world, employees need simple solutions that provide instant access to strategic information, including every document a business generates. Productivity in any business depends upon collaboration, organization and efficiency. The fi-6000NS Network Scanner is the fastest, easiest way to get businesses scanning and sharing documents in an effective manner.

"We work in a world where everything we do at the office needs to be connected," said Victor Kan, vice president, sales and marketing, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. "With the Fujitsu fi-6000NS an entire organization can stay connected and productive by scanning and sharing files across the office and across the globe. Network scanning allows employees to easily share documents with colleagues, departments, and other cities and countries at increasingly higher rates of speed and efficiency. We need to be connected in everything we do and with every document we generate to collaborate with customers and co-workers. That is the main focus of the fi-6000NS and network scanning as a strategic business solution."

Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Secure!

The Fujitsu fi-6000NS is the quickest, easiest way to get an organization scanning and sharing documents. In the past, businesses needed centralized printers, copiers, faxes and storage discs to enable others in the organization to share documents and collaborate on projects. With the new fi-6000NS, network document sharing, emailing and faxing just got a lot easier.

Simply load documents into the automatic document feeder (ADF), log into the system, type in the destination using the built-in US 101 keyboard, and press the scan icon on the large touch-screen display. The documents will be easily accessible and immediately available to the rest of the organization within seconds as the scanner distributes documents directly to a network folder, email, or fax machine. Moreover, the fi-6000NS creates secure, searchable PDF files allowing users to password protect their scanned documents to ensure files can only be opened by the intended recipients.

Not only will the fi-6000NS save on consumable costs such as fax paper and printer paper by distributing documents electronically, it reduces the need for additional technical support, equipment expenditures, shipping costs and large phone bills due to multiple fax projects through its scan-to-email feature.

The fi-6000NS is also easy to install. Simply plug-in the power and Ethernet cable, point the network scanner to your network and email server and it's ready to work. Because the scanner uses the existing mail system address book and network security, no user profiles have to be created and maintained. There is also no need for a network adapter, PC or additional software.

More Innovative Features of the Fujitsu fi-6000NS Network Scanner

The Fujitsu fi-6000NS comes equipped with the largest touch-screen display in its class -- 8.4 inch XGA (1024 x 768) – including 24 bit color, and zoom/rotate image functionality. The built-in US 101 keyboard makes entering information easy and flips up for access to the exit tray. The fi-6000NS scans in color, grayscale and monochrome at duplex speeds up to 25 ppm / 50 ipm, offers true 600dpi optical resolution, a 50-page automatic document feeder (ADF), and dual-CCD scanning arrays to consistently capture fine details in color and monochrome.

The network scanner also boasts ultrasonic double-feed detection, long document scanning support (up to 34 inches), and hard card scanning capabilities (ISO7810 standard) and embossed card scanning through the main ADF. Yet, with a compact footprint of only 12.4" x 10.8" x 15.5", the fi-6000NS installs easily into even the most crowded environments, including front office and back office locations. Other innovative features/functions of the Fujitsu fi-6000NS Network Scanner include:

  • Scan to email, network folder, network fax systems, and searchable PDF
  • Automatic image quality adjustments, color detection, image orientation, paper deskew, paper size detection and blank page detection/removal
  • Perfect for medical offices, real estate offices, legal, university administration, warehouses, government or any business looking for easy document sharing
  • Three-month limited warranty with Advance Exchange program available
