Canon launches new cheque scanner
Dubai, June 23, 2011
Canon Middle East, a leader in imaging solutions, has launched its latest cheque scanner designed for desktop scanning of cheques, vouchers and coupons, with speeds up to 50 cheques per minute.
Canon’s new imageFormula CR-50 replaces the previous imageFormula CR-55, with new software upgrades and features. It is designed for businesses that need to efficiently scan and read cheque data at branch offices or at a company’s central or administrative location, a statement said.
To ensure high precision data capture, the imageFormula CR-50 uses magnetic ink character recognition (MICR) supported by optical character recognition (OCR) technology to improve read accuracy and save employee time.
The imageFormula CR-50 also incorporates a range of image processing features for impressive quality and sharper image capture, such as fine text filtering that reduces unnecessary ‘noise’ on images with patterned backgrounds.
A built-in imprinter, with its useful low ink level warning, can be activated to print endorsement information onto cheques to help meet audit trail requirements. Alternatively a print “add-on” feature can be used to print recurring or cheque-relevant data onto scanned images.
“Cheques still remain an important method of payment in many markets. For example, some organisations are changing to a decentralised process by scanning and capturing customer cheque information at branch office locations, so are looking for faster and more cost effective payment processing solutions,” said Nilesh Pathak, product manager, Canon Middle East.
“The new ultra-compact CR-50 cheque scanner is perfect for these environments where individuals need to accurately scan cheques from small cashier counters or desktops at the highest quality.”
The CR-50 includes infrared double feed detection and a paper thickness adjustment so that users can ensure reliable cheque processing and minimising the risk of paper jams, he added.
For sectors that operate with specialist programmes, such as banking or finance, a Software Developers Kit (SDK) is available with the imageFormula CR-50 to enable developers to seamlessly integrate any third party application software into existing workflows, Pathak explained. – TradeArabia News Service
