Yokohama, Japan, June 13, 2019 - PFU Limited, a subsidiary of Fujitsu Ltd. today announced the provision of free macOS driver software downloads. This driver will enable customers to operate our mainline FUJITSU Image Scanner fi Series*1 which offers high levels of high productivity and reliability.
Recent advancements in web/cloud services have resulted in growing Mac computer presence in healthcare fields and SOHO. To meet the needs of such customers and enterprises PFU Limited will be providing the macOS driver software for the fi Series so that fi Series models can be used on macOS.
“In addition to the Windows driver software commonly used in business system environments, we have already provided the driver software for Linux in order to meet the demands of customers with cost constraints and markets in newly-developing countries.”, said PFU Limited’s Corporate Senior Vice President & Head of Imaging Business Group, Yasunori Miyauchi. “With the macOS driver software this time around, our mainline fi Series will be available on all three major desktop operating systems (Windows, macOS, and Linux).”
The macOS driver software supports the Image Capture (macOS bundled application) and Image Capture Architecture (ICA) interface. The Image Capture with our driver can be used as a common interface for importing data, enabling users to scan through business systems on macOS.
Image Capture’s simple user interface and our integrated driver’s automation function allow users to easily save scanned images in a PDF format. The software provides a variety of functions, such as cropping, blank page detection, and image correction which contributes to reducing the time and effort it takes to perform operations. These functions make document digitization much more efficient without the need to perform troublesome operations, such as dividing documents according to the document type in advance.
With this additional driver software compatibility, users can enjoy the fi Series, our top brand of image scanners, in various environments and situations, regardless of the operating system in use.
