ENERGYSTAR® compliance
VRS Professional
Bundled with Adobe® Acrobat® 8

As an ENERGY STAR® partner, PFU Limited, a Fujitsu company, has determined that this product meets the ENERGY STAR® guidelines for energy efficiency.
ENERGY STAR® is a registered trademark of the United States.

Now bundled with Kofax VRS (Virtual ReScan) Professional for Workgroup [Note1]
Previously bundled Virtual ReScan (VRS):

  • VRS verification and adjustment features generate perfect images every time.
  • The ability to efficiently digitize large volumes of documents dramatically improves scanning productivity.
  • Easy to use. Automated functions remove the need for skilled scanner operators.

Now, the newly bundled Kofax VRS Professional lets users do what they could always do with the VRS Basic as well as:

VRS Professional

  • Automatically rotate documents based on content to present a correctly oriented image
  • Automatically detect color images without having to change scanner settings
  • Output an smoothed image with a solidified background color

VRS Professional for Workgroup

  • Supports all of the above functions as well as the Adrenaline Image Processing Engine (AIPE), which is capable of generating PDFs and processing bar codes

Although the fi-5120C, fi-5220C, fi-6140 and fi-6240 are defined by Kofax as "Desktop" scanners and would normally be bundled with the "Desktop" version of VRS, these scanners have been bundled with the "Workgroup" version of VRS in order to provide enhanced performance.
