Canon U.S.A. on Monday introduced the imageFormula DR-2510M and DR-2010M desktop scanners, the first fully Mac-compatible high-speed document scanners offered from Canon. They’re priced at $795 and $555 respectively.
Both scanners share a similar design, with USB 2.0 interfaces, “Scan-to-Job” buttons that send images directly to an application, shared network folders, e-mail or the printer, and both come with TWAIN-compliant drivers to integrate with scanning software. Bundled with the scanners is Canon CaptureOnTouch software, as well.
Other shared features include “Advanced Text Enhancement,” color dropout correction and auto color detection, text orientation recognition, “Folio Mode” and “Long Document Mode” to scan odd-sized documents, and slant paper paths to handle thick documents, driver licenses and embossed plastic cards.
The DR-2510M can scan black and white, color and greyscale pages at 25 pages per minute in simplex mode, or 50 inches per minute in duplex mode. The DR-2010M manages the same at 20 pages per minute in simplex mode, 40 inches per minute in duplex mode.
The scanners operate at 600 dot per inch optical resolution and can accommodate up to 50 pages in their automatic document feeders.
System requirements call for Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
