The Canon DR-9050C A3 Colour Document Scanner is a high end document imaging solution that will suit most rental applications. Able to scan at up to 112 pages per minute (200dpi, Landscape A4, Single side) in Black & White, Greyscale or Colour (Yes, it will scan at that speed in full colour with those settings) provided the host PC is up to the task. Connection is via Ultra3 SCSI or USB 2 and which to use will be depenadant on what the host PC is able to support. Higher speeds will be possible with SCSI but not all PC's will be able to accept the required HBA (SCSI adapter) required. The USB2 connection still offers good speed with the added advantage of working with practically any PC or Mac.
Document handling is also impressive on the Canon DR-9050C A3 Colour Document Scanner which is able to scan documents as small as 50x70mm and as large as 305x432mm or banners as long as 3 metres in long document mode. The continuous feeder will accept up to 500 documents simultaneously via the input tray which will then lift and be processed from the top down. The Canon DR-9050C A3 Colour Document Scanner is able to scan both sides of a document simultaneously in full colour at resolutions up to 600dpi.
On the software side, Hire Intelligence reccomends the use of Adobe Acrobat or a third party application such as NAPS2 for document capture. Alternatively Canon Capture Perfect software is also available to rent seperately. Capture Perfect 2 Lite is also available but only compatible with older operating systems such as Windows XP.
