Fujitsu Integrates Latest Version of Kofax Award-Winning VirtualReScan (VRS) Technology Into Document Imaging Scanner Line

VRS 4.0 Technology Incorporated Into fi-5650C & fi-5750C Scanners; fi-4340C Scanner with Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Also Introduced

San Jose, CA
May 16, 2005

Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., a market leader in document imaging scanners and services, today announced the integration of the newest version of Kofax® VirtualReScan® (VRS) technology into the Fujitsu fi-5650C and fi-5750C color, low-volume production scanners. Kofax VRS 4.0 makes scanning more efficient and enhances the quality of scanned images by offering the ability to add color processing and features that further automate document preparation. Fujitsu customers purchasing the fi-4120C2, fi-4220C2, fi-4340C, or fi-4530C scanner through the company’s channel partners will also receive a free upgrade to the VRS 4.0 Standard version.

Additionally, Fujitsu has introduced the fi-4340C color, departmental duplex scanner with Hi-Speed USB 2.0. Fujitsu will be demonstrating its entire enterprise scanner line in booth #500 during the 2005 AIIM ON DEMAND Conference & Exposition, May 17-19, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

VRS technology, the de facto industry standard for image processing, improves both image clarity and optical character recognition (OCR) accuracy, delivering unmatched quality and eliminating the need to rescan document images because of its automatic check for and adjustment of alignment (skew), brightness, contrast and image clarity. VRS 4.0 greatly accelerates the processing of documents, cuts the amount of time that knowledge workers spend on rescanning and improves their productivity by offering color processing and other capabilities that significantly reduce document preparation time by automatically handling blank or rotated pages, as well as white-or black-background scanners.

“Fujitsu and Kofax have enjoyed a long successful partnership when it comes to increasing scanning efficiency, improving workflow and reducing costs associated with scanning,” said Victor Kan, vice president, sales and marketing, Imaging Products Group, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. “Fujitsu is among the first document image vendors to incorporate VRS 4.0 technology into its scanner line and has always been at the forefront of scanning innovation. The AIIM conference, as always, will prove to be a great venue to show off the company’s new offerings.”
