World's Best Selling Sheetfed Scanner Works Great with Industry Standard Applications and Can Now Be Customized by Third Party Developers and IT Organizations

Visioneer, Inc., a leader in intelligent imaging solutions, today announced the new Visioneer Strobe(TM) XP 200 and related software developer's kit. The Strobe XP 200 is Visioneer's most advanced 6 page per minute sheetfed scanner targeted at the corporate desktop user and is bundled with ScanSoft's(R) PaperPort(R) Deluxe 8.0 software. The Strobe XP 200 Software Developer's Kit (SDK), available for purchase separately, was created for third party developers and corporate users who want to use the Strobe XP 200 as the basis of a turnkey system or for incorporation into their existing workflow applications. The new Strobe XP 200, along with the entire Visioneer business scanner product line, will be on exhibit in booth #3259 at the AIIM Exposition & Conference in New York April 7-9.

Alteer(TM) Corporation, a leading provider of integrated software applications that completely eliminate paper and automate the entire workflow for medical practices, has been using and recommending Visioneer Strobe scanners to their clients for years. "With the Strobe XP 200, Visioneer has done an excellent job of combining the no-fuss power, speed and minimal desktop real-estate requirements of their Strobe Pro line of scanners with perfect compatibility to a new-age business operating system," said Mike McCulty, Manager of Corporate Technical Support at Alteer Corporation. "Alteer is deploying one with every workstation we implement."

Strobe XP 200 Scanner Specifications

Designed to fit between the keyboard and monitor, the Strobe XP 200 is an extremely space efficient paper management and productivity tool. Measuring only 2" x 2.5" x 11", it scans paper and photos from business cards up to legal size documents at 6 pages per minute. The Strobe XP 200 has a resolution of 600 dpi with 48-bit color and attaches via a USB 2.0 or USB 1.1 port.

With Visioneer's patented PaperDriven(TM) and AutoLaunch(TM) technologies, the Visioneer Strobe XP 200 automatically scans documents and photos when they are inserted into the scanner. The Strobe XP 200 scanner then launches the PaperPort software and instantly places the document on the PaperPort Desktop ready for use.

From there users can file images, print them out, use the included software to convert documents to editable text, insert images into web pages or share them with anyone via email or fax. Users can set the scanner to send the scanned image to any of the numerous PaperPort links automatically after scanning.

Generous Software Bundle Included

ScanSoft's award-winning PaperPort Deluxe 8.0 software, valued at $99, is the industry's leading document management application. Use PaperPort to zoom in on your documents, add sticky notes, highlight important points or drag and drop documents to your favorite applications. PaperPort allows for easy filing in color-coded folders and automatically searches documents and indexes them in the background to make finding documents by content fast and easy with SimpleSearch(R) technology. ScanSoft's TextBridge(R) Pro OCR allows users to scan printed documents directly into their word processor without having to re-type them. The TextBridge OCR engine accurately renders documents with multiple columns and transforms them into editable, formatted text. ArcSoft(R) PhotoImpression(TM) is an easy-to-use photo editing and creative design program that allows users to edit and retouch photos, then add special effects or place them in cards, calendars, frames and templates.

Strobe XP 200 Developer's Kit Allows For Customized Workflow Solutions

For developers who have or are developing their own applications, Visioneer's Strobe XP 200 SDK will allow for direct control of the scanner down to the low level driver. Developers can compile the ability to control the scanner into their existing code, allowing them to get documents and photos into their application with their desired settings without ever showing a user interface or allowing the end user to change the settings. For those with smaller scale projects or without programming experience, TWAIN / WIA and PaperPort Links are
another solution.

"Many large organizations and third party software developers have been asking Visioneer to provide a toolset that will enable them to integrate customized document imaging applications with a fast sheetfed scanner," said Murray L. Dennis, president and CEO of Visioneer. "Banks, law firms, insurance companies, medical claims processing services and warehousing and logistics organizations are only a few examples of where the Strobe scanners are being deployed to increase employee productivity."
