Computer-optional scanner can process 100 documents per charge
Optical character recognition pioneer I.R.I.S has announced the availability of IRIScan Anywhere 3, a cordless, battery-powered, portable scanner enabling mobile users to digitize documents, receipts, and photos without a connected computer.
The scanner fits easily into most laptop bags, briefcases, or purses. Maximum scan speed is six pages per minute in black and white or color with possible resolutions of 600 or 300 dpi. Up to 100 letter-sized documents can be saved to a SD card, USB flash drive, or internal memory before the battery is depleted.
The IRIScan Anywhere 3 comes bundled with Readiris Pro 14 for the PC and Mac for optical character recognition, and business card import and management tool Cardiris Pro version 5 for the PC, and version 4 for the Macintosh. The software requires Windows XP or greater, or OS X version 10.4 or above, with an optical drive for installation. IRIScan Anywhere 3 is available now for $199.
