RICOH INTRODUCES WIDE FORMAT COLOR SCANNER FOR RAPID AND ACCURATE SCANNING
West Caldwell, NJ, September 23, 2008 - Ricoh Americas Corporation, the leading provider of digital office equipment, today announced the availability of the Ricoh Wide Format Color Scanner. Designed to work with Ricoh’s line of Wide Format products, the new Ricoh Wide Format Color Scanner handles both high-speed full color and monochrome scanning for businesses in large format printing environments.
The Ricoh Wide Format Color Scanner provides users with great image quality at rapid scanning speeds of 12 inches per second (ips) for monochrome scans and 0.6 ips for color scans. In addition to its fast scanning rates, the Wide Format Color Scanner cuts down on work processing time enabling operators to edit and crop images before sending the image to its final destination, either printed or electronically stored. The device also comes equipped with an All-Wheel Drive Paper Transport System that eliminates image distortion frequently caused by erroneous paper alignment and ensures that images are accurately reproduced.
The Ricoh Wide Format Color Scanner enhances workflow efficiency by combining multifunctional software flexibility with user-friendly controls. The scanner allows users to program and select job parameters through an intuitive LCD touch screen display and is paired with JETimage multifunction software allowing operators to create programmable icons to scan, copy, print, and track projects. The Ricoh Wide Format Color Scanner also allows for Scan-to-Net operability making it possible to scan documents directly to network storage.
When paired with the Ricoh Wide Format Printer and imaging software, the Ricoh Wide Format Color Scanner provides users with high-speed monochrome and full color scanning and printing for an array of original documents ranging from architectural drawings to oversized posters.
