PFU Ltd. (President: Eiji Katano, Tokyo Head Office: Saiwai-ku, Kawasaki, Capital: 4.98 billion yen) will release today, the ScanSnap! fi-4010CU model, which consists of a flatbed type scanner and ScanSnap!. The product will be shipped from November 27.

"ScanSnap!" incorporates the simple and ideal color filing product concept in practice and has been receiving good reviews since its release in July 2001.
ScanSnap! fi-4010CU extends this concept and has achieved high scanning speeds of up to 10 pages per minute for monochrome documents and 5 pages per minute for automatic monochrome/color detection using the Automatic Document Feeder, one of the features of ScanSnap!. The built in flatbed scanner can also scan photos or bound documents, thus making it a powerful, compact scanner.
Moreover, it also comes bundled with Adobe Acrobat 5.0 software (developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated), to create and manage PDF files (PDF is the de-facto standard format for electronic documents worldwide), and Business Card Filing OCR V1.0 for easily managing business card information.
The lineup includes two types of ScanSnap! scanners -- the duplex sheet feed type ScanSnap! fi-4110E0X2, and the compact flatbed type ScanSnap! fi-4010CU. It can thus be safely said that the ScanSnap! series meets the needs of an office effectively.

For the convenience of our customers, the ScanSnap! series of scanners can be purchased online at our shop "PFU Direct" or through our resellers, thus offering our customers our products at economical prices.
