Tokyo, Sept 2, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu announces the release of the new ScanSnap SV600 document scanner, which is capable of high quality scanning of large documents up to A3 size in a compact unit. This new addition to the ScanSnap series of personal scanners uses new Versatile Imaging (VI) Technology that maintains high image quality and ensures user-friendly operation.
The SV600 can directly scan large documents (up to A3 size) as well as bound books to document quality(1). It maintains the ScanSnap series' reputation for sharp scanned data images as well as inheriting the iconic "One Touch" feature from the ScanSnap Series. Unique features of the SV600 include an in-built "Book Image Correction" (ability to remove
distortion caused by the curve of an open book) feature and "Page Turning Detection" feature, which initiates the scanning operation via the detection of page turning movements.
Peter Uher, General Manager, Fujitsu Products Group said "The release of the SV600 with its simple and fast desktop to digital data capture capability, allows the scanning of documents such as broadsheets and thick books that were previously difficult to handle. Its compact design and overhead scanning operation, reduces desktop footprint and even allows capture of multiple business card details just by scattering them within the scanning area. This is a welcome addition to the ScanSnap series of personal scanners, which deliver fast and simple document digitization to PDF."
At introduction the SV600 comes bundled with software for Windows OS, Mac OS (Driver software, business card management software, OCR software)(2) is scheduled for November availability.
1. Easy to digitize different document types using the new VI Technology

This ensures distortion is removed and scanning produces uniform document quality. As a result even large documents and bound books can be easily digitized.
(1) Able to scan newspapers and magazines up to A3 size(3)
