Canon Europe has announced the launch of the imageFORMULA DR-G2090, DR-G2110 and DR-G2140

DR-G2140

The new devices combine high volume A3 scanning capabilities with enhanced efficiency, high image quality and optional LAN interface. These features enable partners to address the evolving business requirements of their customers who are increasingly looking for high quality document capture via shared devices without the need for additional hardware.

The DR-G2 series models have been designed for high volume environments of up to 70,000 scans a day. They use Canon’s latest CIS Sensor technology and newly-developed onboard DR processor chip that enables high speed scanning and image processing of up to 280 images per minute in colour and at a resolution of 300dpi. A large capacity 500 sheet feeder can handle larger scan batches without interruptions.

The imageFORMULA DR-G2 series production scanners feature a new image processing mode, Active Thresholding, which allows customers to scan mixed documents with different texts, colours and backgrounds without adjusting imaging settings. Active Thresholding compensates for variations in document background by automatically adjusting brightness for each page.

A barcode and 2D code recognition feature offers users the ability to automatically separate batches, sorting them into multipage, named files using the barcode information for file naming or indexing. Active Thresholding and barcode recognition help to free up workers from time-consuming, manual scanning tasks, allowing users to process large volumes of varying document types much more quickly and easily than before.

The devices can connect via LAN interface or USB, eradicating the need for a dedicated PC or software application, and they include ISIS/TWAIN/WIA and Kofax VRS Drivers supporting integration into various scanning applications.

Alongside the new devices, Canon will be releasing a series of new software development toolkits, allowing partners to customise their offering with bespoke applications designed to meet individual customer needs.

The Canon imageFORMULA DR-G2110 and DR-G2140 will be available across Europe from November 2018 and the DR-G2090 form December 2018.
