Lake Success, N.Y. -
introduced Wednesday the ImageFormula P-150M "Scan-tini" personal scanner for Mac users.
The P-150M, shipping now at a $295 suggested retail, is said to have the same technology and compact footprint as the original P-150 scanner for PCs, enabling Mac users to have the same mobile image capture solutions.
"Since introducing the original ImageFormula P-150, we have received tremendous feedback regarding the versatility of this on-the-go scanning solution, resulting in increased demand from several market segments, including Mac users," said Jim Rosetta, VP and general manager, imaging systems groups, Canon USA. "For mobile workers, on-the-go company representatives or the traditional â€˜road-warriors,' it is essential to have a reliable and precise imaging solution to help streamline and conduct business -- and the ImageFormula P-150M is an ideal device to meet that need among Mac users."
The P-150M is said to allow for quick connectivity and minimal setup time via a single USB port that also serves as an electrical source from the attached computer.
Embedded Canon CaptureOnTouch software lets Mac users scan without installing drivers or additional applications while also routing scan information directly to Evernote, a service for saving and organizing content across desktop, mobile and Web devices.
Additional functionality is provided by a Twain driver for hardware integration with third-party Enterprise Content Management software. Technology features include color dropout, auto color correction and Advanced Text Enhancement II, which smoothly capture original hard-copy documents.
Letter-sized documents can be scanned at to 15 ppm or 30 images per minute in duplex scanning, and it holds 20 pages in its ADF.
