Canon launches fast and versatile document scanner

Canon Middle East, world-leader in imaging solutions, launches the imageFORMULA DR-F120, a new fast, and versatile document scanner. The compact device helps offices to productively capture a wider range of different business documents for improved file storage and management efficiency.

The new imageFORMULA DR-F120 document scanner provides users with exceptional value for performance. Incorporating both an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) and flatbed scanner unit, the DR-F120 offers greater flexibility for organisations that require a dedicated business scanner to handle the digitisation of a wide range of business documents.

Designed to support a productive office
Largely positioned for small office environments and corporate departments, the imageFORMULA DR-F120 features a compact, sleek design that saves valuable desk space while retaining the professional design synonymous with Canon’s broad range of office products.

The aesthetic design is teamed with a collection of features that boost office productivity and enable office users to carry out document processing tasks with ease. From an easy to use “one touch” control panel to impressive scanning speeds of up to 20ppm, the new scanner is packed with features to support both ad-hoc and more routine scanning tasks. The imageFORMULA DR-F120 reliably handles up to 800 documents a day, and features a robust feeder mechanism for reliable, smooth feeding and separation of mixed documents types.

With its AFD, the imageFORMULA DR-F120 has the capability to scan batches of various documents in a single operation, including thin and thick papers, business cards and even long documents up to 1m in length, while the device’s flatbed scanner allows organisations to handle the vast array of other documents that need to be scanned individually, from books, passports, magazines to photos. The new imageFORMULA DR-F120 is also capable of supporting larger legal sized documents.

Intuitive software
The new imageFORMULA DR-F120 also includes Canon’s intuitive scanning software CaptureOnTouch 3, providing users with quick scanning modes and automatic processing tools that result in optimal image quality with little effort or setup required. The software provides easy to use post-editing features allowing users to enhance and adjust individually scanned images, such as changing contrast settings, colour mode, or even selecting an area on scanned image that you only want to save. With OCR, users can create searchable and editable PDFs, and save documents to various other file formats. Sharing documents is also simplified with the capability to send to multiple destinations at once as well as upload to popular cloud-based applications, such as Sharepoint, DropBox Evernote, OneDrive, GoogleDrive, and SugarSync.

Hendrik Verbrugghe, Marketing Director at Canon Middle East, commented: “Organisations are increasingly realising the benefits of moving towards a digitised office environment and are reaping the rewards as a result; from the time it saves employees by having easy and instant access to important documents, to the improved office productivity that it delivers. We’re seeing this positively impact the appetite for high-speed business scanning. Our new imageFORMULA DR-F120 not only offers reliable, high-speed document capture, but also delivers the versatile functionality our customers are looking for at a very competitive price-point.”

The imageFORMULA DR-F120 document scanner is now available across Middle East and North Africa.
