Eastman Kodak Company’s Document Imaging business today announced that its two new desktop scanners, the KODAK i30 and i40 Scanners, are now shipping to customers worldwide. Bundled with the i30 and i40 Scanners, Kodak also announced the immediate availability of KODAK Capture Software 6.5.

The KODAK i30 and i40 Scanners are loaded with innovative features common to higher volume scanners, to maximize productivity and value to customers with lower volume scanning needs. These small scanners deliver color and black-and-white images for small offices or workgroup applications within large organizations. The i30 simplex scanner, with speeds up to 25 pages per minute, and the i40 duplex scanner, with speeds up to 50 images per minute, both feature a 50-page capacity automatic document feeder, multi-feed detection, autocrop and deskew, and color dropout for forms processing. With Kodak’s Perfect Page with iThresholding, both models automatically adjust to all document types and conditions.

KODAK Capture Software Lite offers easy-to-use, professional-level features that maximize the value delivered from the i30 and i40 scanners right out of the box. It has sufficient functionality for typical workgroup applications and can be upgraded easily to the newly available full version, KODAK Capture Software 6.5. Designed to unwrap the full functionality of the KODAK i30 and i40 Scanners, KODAK Capture Software 6.5 has a U.S. list price beginning at $399. The i30 and i40 Scanners include other feature-rich software, which include READIRIS Pro, and demo versions of KOFAX CAPIO for KODAK Scanners and CAPTIVA QUICKSCAN PRO.

The scanners have U.S. list prices of $799 for the i30 and $1,195 for the i40. A one-year mail-in warranty from KODAK Service & Support is included with both models, and is upgradeable to two years with Advanced Unit Replacement coverage and includes a consumables kit for $129 (i30 Scanner) and $149 (i40 Scanner) U.S. list price.
