Fujitsu Redefines Departmental Scanning Capabilities With Its Debut Of The fi-4530C
New Color fi-4530C Raises the Bar for Departmental Scanners with Smallest Footprint at Ground-Breaking Price and Performance Level
New York, NY, April 8, 2003 Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. (FCPA), a market leader in document imaging scanners and services, today introduced the newest member of its award-winning scanner product family the fi-4530C. Unveiled at the AIIM 2003 Exposition and Conference in New York City, the fi-4530C duplex color scanner brings decentralized, high quality image capture to the desktop at a highly competitive price.
FCPA’s Imaging Products Group (IPG) has targeted the cost-conscious and performance demanding departmental market segment with the fi-4530C, which starts at less than $4000 U.S. list price, and boasts the smallest A3 footprint on the market today occupying only 11.9″ x 16″ x 9″ (H x W x D) of desktop space — comparable in size to an A4 inkjet printer. The fi-4530C, available in July 2003, is the first departmental level scanner built specifically for quiet operation equipped with ultrasonic double-feed detection. The ultrasonic double-feed detection helps to prevent lost images and enables larger batches of mixed document types to be scanned quickly, reliably, and automatically. Additionally, the fi-4530C is equipped with Adobe® Acrobat® 5.0 software to convert any document to an Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) file.
«The market continues to see businesses migrate toward decentralized scanning systems,» said Susan Moyse, analyst at InfoTrends Research Group, Inc. «With features rarely seen in the departmental scanning market, such as its double-feed detection, dual SCSI/USB interface, and the bundling of Adobe Acrobat 5.0 software, the fi-4530C sets a precedent in the competitive document imaging market.»
«Acrobat 5.0 and Adobe PDF enable corporations to streamline business processes both internally and across an extended enterprise,» said Sarah Rosenbaum, director of Acrobat product marketing, Adobe. «By bundling these technologies in the fi-4530C, Fujitsu is allowing departmental scanning users to transcend the barriers between paper and digital workflows while maintaining the look and feel of their original documents.»
The fi-4530C has true 600 dpi output without interpolation, offering both print-on-demand image quality, and paper handling that did not previously exist at the departmental level. The fi-4530C has a 100-page automatic document feeder (ADF) that handles document sizes ranging from 2.1″ x 2.9″ to 11″ x 17″. It also possesses duplex and color capabilities at speeds up to 47 pages-per-minute (ppm)/47 images-per-minute (ipm) in landscape mode.
Furthermore, the new scanner has a dual interface of SCSI-II and Hi-Speed USB. The Hi-Speed USB interface allows tremendous transfer rates, and easy connectivity for plug-and-play solutions. Other inbox applications include industry standard TWAIN/ISIS drivers.
«We are proud to introduce a truly groundbreaking scanner,» said Victor Kan, senior director of product and channel marketing, Imaging Products Group, Fujitsu Computer Products of America. «Today, many businesses either have or are planning to adopt a branch office structure that requires easy-to-use, high performance, cost-effective document imaging solutions. Small businesses and departments in organizations such as insurance companies, government agencies, medical establishments, and financial institutions have expressed great interest for this level of product at the right price.»
