London September 13, 2011 – Kodak (NYSE:EK) today announced that it is launching its latest SmartTouch scanning solution - the ScanMate i920 Personal Scanner.

Fast SmartTouch scanning
The ScanMate i920 provides fast scanning, ease of use, and outstanding connectability. The scanning process is simplified through Kodak’s unique SmartTouch feature: a scan-job can be selected by the scanner display and the GO-Button, or via the desktop.

For daily correspondence, business cards, receipts or colour brochures, the i920 scans documents at speeds of up to 20 DIN-A4 pages per minute in simplex or up to 40 images per minute in double sided mode, with a recommend daily volume of 500 pages per day.  

With a very small footprint of 288 mm wide and 107 mm deep – that’s about half the size of an A4 page - the ScanMate i920 fits comfortably on any desktop, and provides users with an outstanding imaging solution for efficient day-to-day scanning whenever needed. To create a digital copy of a valuable paper document is as simple as pressing a button.

Fit for your documents
ScanMate i920 includes a 20-sheet Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) for consecutive batch scanning, and supports feeding for business cards, hard cards, DIN-A4 and even long-length documents. Document formats with different sizes such as travel expenses can be scanned in mixed document batches.

Hauke Fast, EAMER Product Marketing Manager Document Imaging, Kodak’s Business Solutions and Services Group, comments, “Kodak’s new ScanMate i920 Personal Scanner combines a stylish design with a functional device – easy to use and combined with a worry-free 3 year Advance Unit Replacement Warranty (AUR).”

Link your documents to the cloud
The ScanMate i920 Personal Scanner provides automated office functions for scan-to-email, scan-to-SharePoint, scan-to-folder or scan to cloud applications, all at the touch of a button.

The scanner creates outstanding images with Kodak’s integrated Perfect Page image processing functions including blank page detection, auto de-skew, automatic image orientation, auto colour detection, auto cropping and many, many more.

A powerful integrated document viewer for scanned images allows for the editing of images before saving. For Windows operating systems, the ScanMate i920 comes with TWAIN and ISIS drivers for built in connectivity to any professional scanning software.

Intelligent Software Functions
In addition to automatic PDF file creation, ScanMate i920 users can also generate searchable PDF files.  The ScanMate i920 is also bundled with the NEWSOFT PRESTO! BIZCARD 6.0 software, for easy business card scanning and efficient organisation of card details.

With Kodak’s ScanMate i920 Personal Scanner, document scanning is easy, and a part of daily life. Users also have the option of purchasing KODAK Capture Pro Software with the scanner.
