Visioneer releases new Strobe

One of the most popular pieces of hardware at the recent AIIM show was the mobile document scanner.   These types of devices were showcased by multiple vendors including HP, Cannon, and Plustek. Visioneer, of course, pioneered the market for sheetfed mobile devices with its Strobe line, which has been on the market since at least the mid-to-late 1990s when I came into the market. (I will have a longer feature on the mobile document scanning market in my next issue of DIR).

This post is just to note that Visioneer has released the latest version of its Strobe, the 400. It lists for $299 and can perform duplex scans at a rated speed of 6 seconds per page. It offers color output, as well as VRS for producing higher quality bi-tonal images.

Oh yeah, and here's a neat side benefit: “While we may never become truly paperless, we believe you can have a ‘less paper’ office,” said John Capurso, vice president of marketing at Visioneer. “The Strobe 400 is a great, low cost solution for anyone looking to reduce the amount of paper in their life and Visioneer will plant a tree on behalf of every customer who registers a new scanner through our partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation.”
