Fujitsu, a leading player in document imaging scanners, today introduced a new software update for its latest ScanSnap scanner, the iX500.
It gives customers the ability to wirelessly scan documents to a PC or Mac, expanding the capabilities of its built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.
ScanSnap iX500 customers already have the capability to scan directly to their Android and iOS compatible devices.
Now they have the freedom to “cut the cord” from their computer without losing any of the ScanSnap iX500’s advanced scanning functionality, adding a whole new level of scanning convenience, says the company.
With wireless connectivity, customers can place the ScanSnap iX500 away from their computer, such as in the kitchen or a different room in the office, and still utilize all of the scanners’ scanning tools, just as if they were connected via USB.
That means users can create PDF files at speeds of up to 25 double-sided color pages per minute (300dpi, color) and scan just as they normally do from just about anywhere in the home or office, according to the company.
New and current ScanSnap iX500 customers will soon see an online update notification from ScanSnap Manager that will take them through the step-by-step process to create an optional wireless connection between ScanSnap iX500 and their computer using their existing wireless router. They can also check for an update manually using the ScanSnap help menu.
