Fujitsu ScanSnap S300 – The World´s Smallest* A4 Colour, Duplex ADF Document Scanner

December 05, 2007

Fujitsu Europe Limited today introduced its new ScanSnap S300, the world´s smallest* A4 colour, duplex ADF document scanner for mobile and stationary deployment. Its ultra-compact footprint and powerful functions are ideal for mobile use on the road as well as for desktop applications in offices and homes. Fujitsu´s ScanSnap S300 captures document sizes from business card to A4 format and offers the fastest "one-touch" conversion of paper documents into searchable Adobe® portable document format (PDF) files in this performance class.

Fast “one touch” colour scanning
With a tiny footprint of just (W)284mm x (D)95mm x (H)75mm and weighing just 1.4 kg, the ScanSnap S300 is small and light enough for easy transport in briefcases or laptop bags. By simply pressing the „SCAN“ button, the ScanSnap S300 captures images at speeds of 8 pages per minute (simplex) and 16 images per minute (duplex) in auto colour at 150 dpi, providing excellent colour batch scanning performance. In its duplex mode, the S300 scans front and rear sides of the document simultaneously in a single pass. Fujitsu´s new ScanSnap S300 is also able to scan thicker business cards and postcards with paperweights of up to 209.4 g/m2.

Multiple power connections
The ScanSnap S300 can be operated via A/C connection and USB ports. If A/C sources are not available, the S300 can be powered via two integrated USB bus ports and provide colour batch scanning speeds of up to 4 pages (simplex) and 8 images per minute for double-sided documents (duplex) in auto colour at 150 dpi.

Advanced image automation
The ScanSnap S300 provides the latest image automation tools such as automatic image de-skew for correct image realignment, automatic page orientation, automatic paper-size detection, and blank page image removal. The scanner enables users to view PDF and JPEG files with its thumbnail viewer, perform simple edits, change thumbnail display sizes, arrange files with a “drag and drop” function, as well as provide advanced viewing and control of scanned content, and support keyword searches on scanned data. The S300 quickly digitizes large volumes of business cards for quick reference and feeds captured images and information directly into Excel, Outlook Express and postcard software. The ScanSnap S300 automatically converts scanned data into searchable PDF files, which eases the file search at a later date.

“The Fujitsu ScanSnap S300 goes anywhere your notebook goes, where it lets you scan paper receipts, notes, business cards, bills or virtually most any typical office document instantly and at any time. With this new S300 addition, you might actually revalue your notebook and start appreciating your mobile office again. It may even free your home office from some unwanted paper piles,” declares Klaus Schulz, Manager, Product & Channel Marketing EMEA, Fujitsu Europe Limited.

The ScanSnap S300 is unique in scanning and organizing business cards as well as transforming A4 size paper documents into electronic formats in one single device, requiring no further purchase and installation of additional business card solutions. Whether on a client site, in the plane, train or during a meeting, the user can instantly create PDF files that later on can be fed into archiving and DMS applications or further support workflow routines. From a functional product perspective, ScanSnap S300 bridges the gap between Fujitsu´s category of professional fi-series document scanners and those devices that initially had been primarily introduced to support the information and knowledge worker in a business or home office environment.

Price and availability
The Fujitsu ScanSnap S300 document scanner will be available immediately for a recommended retail sales price of € 299 including VAT (depends on actual VAT).
