Intelli Innovations Inc. announced on Wednesday the release of
IntelliScanner Cordless Collector, a barcode reader that incorporates Bluetooth technology. It’s based on the company’s IntelliScanner Collector USB Barcode Reader, which features the ability to scan barcodes found on books, DVDs, music CDs, games and other media. If you take the Cordless Collector outside its wireless range, it will store up to 250 barcodes that are automatically downloaded to your Mac when you bring it within range again.
In addition, the Cordless Collector comes with Collection, Intelli Innovations’ software that allows you to organize information — including titles, authors, directors, actors, genres, release dates, artwork and more — on your Mac. The application features the ability to autofill data from Internet sources, tools for exporting information to FileMaker or in tab-delimited format, advanced printing capabilities and more. The Cordless Collector also offers tools for tracking lent items, personal ratings and more, and can sync with FileMaker Pro, iPod and Palm devices. It requires Mac OS X v10.3 or higher and is available now for US$299.
