Fujitsu Introduces Third Generation of Award-Winning ScanSnap Scanner for Macintosh®

Advanced Paper Handling, Searchable PDF Capability, Improved Quick Menu with Enhanced Functionality and New Software Bundling Spotlight Fujitsu ScanSnap S510M

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 1 -- Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., a market leader in document imaging scanners and services, today introduced the third generation model of its award-winning Fujitsu ScanSnap scanning solution for Macintosh(R) users. The Fujitsu S510M scanner comes equipped with enhanced functionality for searchable PDF creation, advanced paper handling of delicate documents, added filing sheets and a new Quick Menu interface for ease-of-use in controlling scanned documents. Additionally, the new Fujitsu S510M scanner comes bundled with new software to enable users to create searchable portable document format (PDF) files with one touch of a button, as well as offering advanced commenting and collaboration features for PDF documents.

New to Mac users, the Fujitsu ScanSnap S510M scanner now comes bundled with ABBYY FineReader(R) 3.0 for ScanSnap, a custom-built optical character recognition (OCR) software application based on ABBYY's award-winning recognition technology. The FineReader software is seamlessly integrated with ScanSnap, giving one of the fastest, most powerful desktop scanning solutions even more functionality and flexibility. Using ABBYY FineReader software for ScanSnap, users can convert documents into editable and searchable PDFs, all with the push of a button. Additionally, with bundled Adobe(R) Acrobat(R) 8 Professional, ScanSnap boasts flexible editing features including commenting and mark-up capabilities for advanced collaboration.

With the improved interface on the ScanSnap S510M, users gain even more control over scanned documents: easily attach scans directly to e-mail, save scans to selectable folders or send scans directly to a printer in place of a photocopier. This functionality comes at no cost to the simplicity and ease-of-use for which the line of ScanSnap scanning solutions is recognized.

"Mac users have been so gracious with their endorsements and support of the Fujitsu ScanSnap line for Macintosh computers over the years and we're just elated by the relationships we've been able to build with this community," said Victor Kan, vice president of sales and marketing, Imaging Products Group, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. "The scanner has achieved great success and continues to serve as a crucial business tool among Mac users. The successful roll-out to this community, combined with our close relationship in understanding their needs, has continued to fuel Fujitsu in creating quality iterations, with features and functionalities that mirror the design and feature rich aspects central to the Mac community."

Supporting Mac OS(R) X v10.4 Tiger(TM) and Intel(R) or PowerPC(R) based computers, the S510M maintains its sleek design, with a form factor smaller then a laptop or letter-size piece of paper, and continues to offer industry-leading speeds of up to 18 pages per minute (ppm) for single-sided documents and 36 images per minute (ipm) for double-sided documents. With its robust 50- page automatic document feeder (ADF), the S510M is designed to handle a wide variety of paper sizes from business cards to legal length. Additionally, the new "Carrier Sheet" functionality permits the feeding of a delicate, folded, or A3 sized document.

Built on the success of its predecessor, the ScanSnap S510M, will incorporate the same innovative features and functionalities that have been well-received by the Mac community, including:

-- 50-page automatic document feeder
-- High optical resolution up to 600dpi
-- Space saving compact design (only 6.2x11.2x6.2 inches -- smaller footprint than a laptop computer)
-- Dual 600dpi color CCD optical array for scanning both sides of a page
-- Automatic color detection
-- Automatic blank page detection and deletion
-- Automatic paper size detection
-- Automatic image de-skew
-- Integrated, power-saving automatic document-feed cover
-- "Always On" Fujitsu ScanSnap Manager software

Designed for speed and accuracy, Readiris Pro 11 is the ideal tool to edit, save and share text that was previously on paper or locked in a PDF or an image. Cardiris 3.5 software transforms business cards into editable information and can import contacts from external databases, export contacts to other contact managers and even synchronize them. In just a few clicks users can digitize their paper-based rolodex and update the content of their electronic address book directly in their favorite contacts manager such as Microsoft Outlook(R) and Outlook Express personal information management software, ACT!(R) contact management software, Palm OS(R) operating system, Lotus Notes(R) software and GoldMine(R) software.
