Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of digital imaging solutions, has begun shipping the Company’s new ScanFront 220 and ScanFront 220P network scanning solutions. Previewed in April of this year during the AIIM On Demand Conference and Expo in Boston, the ScanFront 220 and 220P devices represent Canon’s flagship network scanning solutions complementing the Company’s award-winning DR-Series Scannersi. Both the ScanFront 220 and 220P will be available through authorized Canon dealers and Canon resellers at the suggested retail price of $1,995 and $2,195 respectively.

The ScanFront 220 and 220P are sleek, simple-to-use network scanners that provide diverse functionality in a compact touch-screen networked console. The ScanFront 220 and 220P devices’ large 8.5-inch touch-screen allows users to preview document images before sending to ensure proper content was captured. Network-ready, the ScanFront 220 and 220P models Scan-to -email, -folder, -FTP and -USB memory; and take up less desk space than most competitive modelsii.

“The Canon ScanFront 220 and 220P stand among the forefront of scanning innovation, delivering a range of convenient features to satisfy real-world needs in one of the most practical and easy-to-use devices we have seen,” said Mark Machida, director, Image Filing Systems Division, Canon U.S.A. “With the proliferation of digital imaging workflows in the office, convenient devices such as the ScanFront 220 and 220P will help to enhance business practices by enabling quality and security.”

The Canon ScanFront 220 and 220P represent a Canon breakthrough in simple design and functionality, helping to increase productivity in remote workgroup and office environments. These network scanners offer intuitive, easy-to-use touch-panel operation, personal, shared and network address books, custom one-touch Job Buttons, and are paired with Canon’s renowned image quality and speed. Both models feature Canon’s proprietary feed mechanism capable of scanning a wide range of the documents, including thick documents.

Scanning at up to 26 pages-per-minute (ppm) or 35 images-per-minute (ipm) letter-sized documents, the ScanFront 220 and 220P capture color, grayscale and black and white images in various file formats including high compression PDF, searchable PDF, TIFF and JPEG. The ScanFront 220 and 220P models allow network administrators remote device setup and management. Network Administrators can remotely and centrally manage entire fleets of ScanFront Network Scanners.

Security At Your Fingertips
Both the Standard and Professional Edition models offer user authentication via user ID and password while the Professional edition models includes a fingerprint authentication sensor for quick access and enhanced device security. Additional features of the Canon ScanFront 220 and 220P that help to enable security include encrypted PDF sending to help maintain secure transmissions and a save log to track outgoing transmissions complete with saved copy of the cover page as well. The device also has a memory wipe function to help prevent the leak of information that could reside on the device. Also, each user on the ScanFront 220 and 220P devices has a defined “From Address” which is not changeable to help prevent spoofed e-mails being sent from the device. Both models help provide network security through NTLM V2 protocol and Kerberos network protocol used to identify and authenticate clients connecting to servers.
