Fujitsu’s ScanSnap SV600 scans directly from your desktop

New addition to ScanSnap range able to scan newspapers and books up to A3 size

Sydney, September 03, 2013

Fujitsu announces the release of the new ScanSnap SV600 document scanner, which is capable of high quality scanning of large documents up to A3 size in a compact unit. This new addition to the ScanSnap series of personal scanners uses new Versatile Imaging (VI) Technology that maintains high image quality and ensures user-friendly operation.

The SV600 can directly scan large documents (up to A3 size) as well as bound books to document quality*1. It maintains the ScanSnap series’ reputation for sharp scanned data images as well as inheriting the iconic “One Touch” feature from the ScanSnap Series. Unique features of the SV600 include an in-built “Book Image Correction” (ability to remove distortion caused by the curve of an open book) feature and “Page Turning Detection” feature, which initiates the scanning operation via the detection of page turning movements.

Peter Uher, General Manager, Fujitsu Products Group said “The release of the SV600 with its simple and fast desktop to digital data capture capability, allows the scanning of documents such as broadsheets and thick books that were previously difficult to handle. Its compact design and overhead scanning operation, reduces desktop footprint and even allows capture of multiple business card details just by scattering them within the scanning area. This is a welcome addition to the ScanSnap series of personal scanners, which deliver fast and simple document digitization to PDF.”

At introduction the SV600 comes bundled with software for Windows® OS, Mac OS (Driver software, business card management software, OCR software)*2 is scheduled for November availability.

SV600 Features

  1. Easy to digitize different document types using the new VI Technology
    VI Technology combines a lens with variable depth of field, a direction controlled LED lamp and a CCD linear image sensor to minimize unevenness in image quality. This ensures distortion is removed and scanning produces uniform document quality. As a result even large documents and bound books can be easily digitized.

    (1) Able to scan newspapers and magazines up to A3 size*3
    No need to cut or fold. Simply position the documents, books, newspapers, within the scanning area and they can be easily scanned. Thick documents*4 such as books or greeting cards, and even those with sticky notes attached can be scanned directly without difficulty.

    (2) Able to scan old or delicate documents
    Because the SV600 does not touch any document surface it is possible to scan precious items that would otherwise be damaged by too much handling or feeding into ordinary ADF scanners.
  2. All-in-one unit lets you create and read your own digital books
    The page turning detection function*5 and the image correction feature, greatly simplify and speed the scanning of book pages. Rack2-Filer Smart and Magic Desktop software, usually only bundled with deluxe models, makes SV600 is the all-in-one model for organizing and enabling the reading of scanned images as digital books.

    (1) Book Image Correction automatically corrects the distortion caused by the curve of an opened book
    Scanned images can be confirmed and fine-tuned using the preview dialog to ensure that the data scanned from magazines and books is as sharp as the original.

    (2) Page Turning Detection makes continuous page scanning efficient
    SV600 automatically detects when a page is turned, allowing books to be scanned at a rate of 3 seconds per open pair of pages.

    (3) Easy Book Creation converts image data to digital books with ease
    The new “Rack2-filer Smart” and “Easy Book Creation” features can automatically create a virtual book based on the front cover, back cover and spine of the original. It can also be placed in a virtual bookshelf for easy selection.
