Canon Enhances imageFORMULA Line With The Introduction Of Three New High-Speed Production Scanners

Lake Success, N.Y., May 6, 2009 – Continuing its tradition in delivering high-quality imaging devices, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging and number-one in the low-volume production document scanner market*, today unveiled the imageFORMULA DR-9050C, DR-7550C and DR-6050C production scanners. First previewed at the 2009 AIIM / On Demand Trade Show and Exposition this year, these scanners deliver true high-speed scanning, capable of providing enterprises with reliable, flexible and high image-quality scanning solutions to enhance document management systems. The DR-9050C, DR-7550C and DR-6050C scanners will be replacing Canon imageFORMULA DR-9080C and DR-7580 production scanners.

Recognizing that most high-volume document scanning environments are not the same but may still require many similar features in a production scanner, these new imageFORMULA production scanners all share the same robust set of features and new technologies, with the only difference among them being the scanning speeds and feeder capacity. Whether scanning in color, grayscale or black-and-white, the Canon DR-9050C, DR-7550C and DR-6050C scanners maintain scanning speeds up to 112 pages-per-minute (ppm)/225 images-per-minute (ipm), 90ppm/180ipm and 65ppm/130ipm, respectively**.


"Whether it's to capture financial documents, process insurance claim forms, or create Electronic Medical Records (EMRs), these scanners will bring a new level of performance to a variety of markets," said Jim Rosetta, vice president and general manager, Imaging Systems Group, Canon U.S.A. "The combination of speed, reliability and image quality will help any production scanning environment to reduce overall costs associated with document management and records retention."

With the need for fast, reliable and precise production scanners continuing to expand, the Canon DR-9050C/7550C/6050C scanners capture fine print and other small details with exceptional clarity using three-line Contact Image Sensors (CIS) at up to 600 dots-per-inch (dpi) optical resolution and incorporate a dust-free shading mechanism for outstanding image quality. In addition, all three scanners include an on-board image processing chip, which enables them to maintain high scanning speeds even when multiple image-processing functions are enabled.


For high-volume document capture, reliability and flexibility are always among the highest of concerns when dealing with image capturing devices. Designed with Canon's unique feeding mechanism, the DR-9050C/7550C/6050C production scanners feature Ultrasonic Double Feed Detection, Rapid Recovery and Staple Detection to help ensure reliable document scanning. Further expanding the flexibility of these production scanners, all three models include an adjustable motorized feeding tray, and can handle paper sizes ranging from business cards up to 11-inches x 17-inches, or long documents up to 118.1 inches.
