Canon launches new UV cheque scanner
Manama, December 15, 2013
Canon Middle East, a leader in imaging solutions, has launched its new cheque scanner capable of capturing UV ink.
The imageFormula CR-190i UV cheque scanner seeks to give retailers, banks and financial institutions the ability to identify fraudulent documents and ensure that payments are processed with greater security, said a statement from Canon.
It is equipped with both a traditional RGB light source and a UV light source. It also improves fraud detection by helping to detect if any details or sensitive areas of a cheque have been tampered with.
Hendrik Verbrugghe, marketing director, said: “With almost two-thirds of organisations worldwide having experienced payment fraud and 87 per cent of those stating that cheques were involved, these businesses require technology that helps them to verify cheque payments and process them securely.
"The new scanner meets this demand through its capability to capture UV inks, helping to protect organisations against fraud.”
The model includes a scanning utility software and a ranger driver, besides Isis and Twain driver which allow organisations to use the devices across a broad range of scanning applications. - TradeArabia News Service
