Xerox Updates DocuMate Scanner

May 2, 2007

Xerox has updated its DocuMate 152 duplex scanner with integrated Visioneer OneTouch scanning and Kofax Virtual ReScan technology, providing enhanced images and other improved scanning capabilities, the company says.

Xerox announced May 1 that it has updated its DocuMate 152 duplex scanner by incorporating Visioneer OneTouch Driver and VirtualReScan technology from Kofax, enabling businesses to improve scanned images with new analysis, correction and color detection capabilities.

The update provides users with a one-touch scan capability, and the enhanced scanned images will provide users with help in other document imaging areas such as data extraction, recognition and retrieval, the company said.

The VRS technology from Kofax, a capture software provider, can detect whether a document is in color or black and white without changes to the scanner settings, and enables DocuMate 152 users to analyze the content of each scanned document and correct any image errors on the fly. Its OCR (optical character recognition) allows it to more accurately identify and delete blank pages that come through the scanner and to generate compact images.

"The next generation of scanner technology is about solving real-world problems such as scanning receipts that are hardly legible, scanning colored multipart shipping forms that are difficult to read from smudge marks and scanning reports that have been highlighted with markers, all at the push of a button," John Capurso, vice president of marketing for Xerox DocuMate scanners, based in Stamford, Conn., said in a statement.

"The tight coupling of Kofax VRS technology with Visioneer OneTouch is a major breakthrough in the information capture and scanning markets because it will enable users of Xerox DocuMate scanners to automatically improve the quality of every image they scan," Rob Klatell, CEO of Kofax's parent company, DICOM Group, in Cambridge, England, said in a separate statement.

Xerox's DocuMate 152 is a color sheeted scanner designed for desktop users. It can scan double-sided documents at speeds of up to 30 images per minute and includes scanner software such as ScanSoft PaperPort, OmniPage Pro OCR, X1 Desktop Search and NewSoft Presto BizCard.

The DocuMate 152 is available now for $499.99.
