Fujitsu Unveils New Award-Winning ScanSnap Scanner with Improved Organizational Software Capabilities, Adobe Acrobat 7.0

The Fujitsu ScanSnap™ fi-5110EOX2 Scanner Augments End-User Experience with Increased Document Security Capabilities, Easier File Handling and Improved Card Scanning

Fujitsu Computer Products of America

San Jose, CA, March 28, 2005

Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., a market leader in document imaging scanners and services, today introduced an enhanced model of its award-winning Fujitsu ScanSnap™ scanning solution, the fi-511EOX2, with new software features and organizing capabilities. The new scanner elevates the original ScanSnap scanner with an advanced software bundle, including Adobe® Acrobat® 7.0 Standard, ScanSnap Organizer™ version 1.0, and ScanSnap Manager™ version 2.0.

The now bundled Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Standard software is the easiest way to create and share secure and reliable Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) documents. With Acrobat 7.0 software, users can view, print, and search Adobe PDF files, create PDF documents from any application that prints, manage specialized content from Microsoft Outlook, Internet Explorer, Access, Microsoft Office and Publisher (Windows only), password protect documents, combine application files into a single PDF document, and organize comments from multiple reviewers with sorting and filtering tools.

The new ScanSnap Organizer software enables users to attach passwords to ScanSnap created PDF files ensuring that only authorized users can open them or see their thumbnail images. The upgraded version also displays scanned PDF files as thumbnails so users can view any image in a particular file simply by clicking the thumbnail’s directional arrows. Furthermore, PDF files can be easily rearranged by "dragging and dropping" selected images. Improving on the renowned ScanSnap Manager software, the upgraded version gives users the ability to create up to nine frequently used and individually tailored scanner profiles based on preferences such as application selections, saving locations and scanning modes.

The new Fujitsu ScanSnap scanning solution maintains all of its award-winning features and capabilities, including authentic one-touch Adobe PDF generation, simple business card scanning and organizing functionality, a 50-page automatic document feeder, high optical resolution, sleek design and fast file handling. Now, with the standard bundle, users also get the Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner "Carrier Sheet," a paper adapter that allows the user to digitize A3 and B4 sized documents in addition to A4, B5, A5, B6, A6 documents and business cards. The Carrier Sheet also allows safe scanning of delicate documents such as photos and fragile papers.

"The feedback we have received from our customers about Fujitsu ScanSnap’s prominent role in their businesses and lives has been tremendous," said Victor Kan, vice president sales and marketing, Imaging Products Group, Fujitsu Computer Products of America. "That feedback, along with ever increasing digital information sharing and regulatory compliance standards, drives us to continually improve the ScanSnap scanner with even better features and functionality. The new ScanSnap scanner is our answer to these trends as we keep pace with the maturing needs of our customers."

Since the Fujitsu ScanSnap scanning solution was first introduced in 2003, thousands of small- to medium-sized offices and business professionals have embraced high-end document management capabilities, brought to them at an affordable price. The Fujitsu ScanSnap is the first and only high-speed, double-sided color scanner under $500. The company was able to develop the scanner by leveraging many features and functionalities usually only found in more expensive document scanners.

The Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner transforms paper into useful digital information at speeds of up to 15 pages per minute (ppm) for single-sided documents and 30 images per minute (ipm) for double-sided documents. Multi-page documents containing color, black and white, and text and graphic information on both sides can be processed into authentic, searchable PDF files with the bundled Acrobat 7.0 Standard software. The resulting PDF documents are stored in the Windows file system on a local PC or network allowing the user to organize, share, protect and interact with this information as they would with any other electronic file.

Fujitsu ScanSnap – Scanning Made Simple

The Fujitsu ScanSnap scanning solution provides business professionals with a simple, fast, easy to use method for converting information contained on paper into digital Adobe PDF files at the touch of a button. The ScanSnap scanner’s "always on" convenience, connectivity, and amazingly small footprint allow it to sit comfortably on any desk. The ScanSnap scanner also reinvented the "one-button" approach which eliminates elaborate scanning applications and the need for cumbersome driver interfaces.

Innovative Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner features include:

  • PDF "Thumbnail" viewing
  • Space saving compact design (only 5.9x11.2x5.7 inches -- smaller than a mobile PC or keyboard)
  • Integrated, power-saving automatic document-feed cover
