BancTec Announces New Addition to Document Processing System - IntelliScan® SDS

Scanner sets new standards in its class for difficult paper handling applications

DALLAS, March 4 -- BancTec, a leading global provider of advanced, high-volume document and payment processing services and solutions, today announced at the AIIM International Exposition and Conference the launch of IntelliScan® SDS, the latest addition to its IntelliScan® line of high-capacity production scanners. The mixed document scanner, with its fully open track, provides customers with a robust document processing system that dramatically improves throughput and reduces recovery time from paper jams, resulting in significantly lower operating costs and outstanding price performance.

IntelliScan SDS has one of the smallest footprints of open track scanners in the market, which makes it the perfect scanning system for mid-volume and/or distributed environments. Featuring many of the same benefits that have made the IntelliScan® XDS a leader in the industry, the IntelliScan SDS delivers rapid performance for multi-purpose page scanning applications in either centralized or distributed environments. The IntelliScan SDS operates at speeds up to 200 pages per minute (ppm) and supports optical resolution of 300 dpi.

Mark Fairchild, senior vice president and chief technology officer for BancTec, said, "The IntelliScan SDS is an important addition to our information processing platform. It has many of the same productivity- and efficiency-generating features for which our IntelliScan XDS has become known, and is a smaller, cost-effective entry point for customers still needing a high-volume production scanner. We believe there is no other scanner on the market that has all of the features of IntelliScan SDS at the same price point. With its completely open, flat track design, advanced 500-page document feeder, and ease in error recovery, IntelliScan SDS will help organizations process more documents faster and at a higher resolution, delivering an exceptional return on investment."

Mark Schneider, director of business solutions for CRI Solutions, added, "The IntelliScan SDS creates a significant new opportunity for BancTec to serve customers who want to leverage the company's longtime expertise in document processing, but who have lower volume requirements or a distributed environment that is tight on space. IntelliScan SDS is a perfect complement to the rest of the IntelliScan solution suite, and will help serve a wide variety of business processes, including healthcare claims, mortgage loan applications, credit card processing, order fulfillment and more."

Key features of IntelliScan SDS include:

o A completely open, flat track that handles mixed document processing for sizes up to 12"x14"
o Document skew detection and correction
o Advanced 500-page document feeder
o Image capture of color, bitonal and grayscale in a single pass
o Real-time OCR recognition technology
o 1D and 2D barcode recognition
o Pre- and post-scan ink jet imprinting
o Double-feed detection
o Easy hand-feed access for quick error recovery
o JPEG 2000 image output
o Configurations with one or two document sorting pockets

Paired with BancTec's IntelliScan® USC (Universal Scanner Control) software, the IntelliScan SDS creates an extremely easy-to-use, flexible high-speed document scanning and processing solution. The system's open environment also makes it compatible with other capture software.

Planned for general availability by June 2008, the IntelliScan SDS is priced at $83,000 in a typical configuration. The IntelliScan SDS has been designed to meet the European Union RoHS directive.
