PFU Limited (President Fujio Wajima, Tokyo Headquarters, Kawasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan) announced the Japanese launch of its newest network scanner, the FUJITSU iScanner fi-6010N, which perfectly meets the needs of the constantly evolving Internet environment. (Shipments began on July 14, 2008)
PFU Limited has fused its global share leading (*1) FUJITSU brand fi-Series technology with technology that meets the ever changing environment of today's evolving Internet. The result is the birth of a new network scanner(*2) brand-the advanced network linking and centralized administration supporting iScanner fi-6010N.
PFU Limited launched the fi-6000NS, its first network scanner, in August 2007. The fi-6000NS was highly appraised by the imaging industry and purchased by companies in various fields, such as finance, real estate and medicine.
The iScanner fi-6010N, the fi-6000NS' successor, includes many new useful functions. One of these new functions is its "central administration function ", which greatly simplifies the administration of multiple iScanner fi-6010N units over a network. Another is the iScanner fi-6010N's "job function ", which enables administrators to remotely set-up "one touch "printing, saving and transmission operability that meets each operator's duties and scanning needs. In addition, the iScanner fi-6010N SDK has been further enhanced to offer the flexibility that is required to meet customers' requirements. This adoption of new technology, which meets the needs of today's ever evolving Internet, is intended to enable the iScanner fi-6010N to offer improved scanning efficiency and reliability.
- Centralized administration function supports greater efficiency
The iScanner fi-6010N comes armed with a centralized administration function that enables administrators to easily administrate multiple units from one location. It is the first product in its class(*2)to come with a uniform account operation administration function that supports the setting of different user environmental settings for each iScanner fi-6010N operator. This function eliminates the need to install settings into individual scanners and enables operators to use any network linked iScanner fi-6010N just by logging in. Furthermore, the iScanner fi-6010N centralized administrations function enables administrators to set operating condition and included software settings and monitor scanner and operations status from a central location. The iScanner fi-6010N centralized administration function / number one global share holding FUJITSU fi-Series scanner technology tandem promises dramatic improvements in efficiency.
- Useful office linking "JOB" functionality
The iScanner fi-6010N's "JOB"function enables administrators to remotely set-up simple "one touch" printing, saving and transmission operability that meets each operator's duties and scanning needs. In addition, use of the iScanner fi-6010N"centralized administration function" supports the setting up of job settings that meet individual operator job requirements. The result is improved security and reliability due to the elimination of operation and transmission related errors.
- Strengthened data transmission security
The iScanner fi-6010N is the first network scanner to support secure encrypted FTPS (*3) file transfers as well as encrypted data authentication with LDAPS (*4)in order to facilitate peace of mind.
- Client application development
The iScanner fi-6010N SDK supports MicrosoftR.NET Framework 3.5 for high performance application development. Moreover, this SDK has been further strengthened in order to offer the flexibility that is required to meet customers' application development needs in today's constantly changing Internet environment.
