ScanStation 500: It’s more than just a scanner…

The Kodak Scan Station 500 is an easy to use, multipurpose scan-send solution that enables users to digitally share paper documents anywhere within a network environment, whether across the hall, across the country, or across the world.

It’s more than just a scanner…it’s a complete capture solution. Designed as a walk-up scan-send station that requires minimal user training, it’s quite possibly the easiest to use capture device found in the general office environment today. The Scan Station 500 requires no host PC or application software; it’s all built in! The color touch screen offers an intuitive, graphical user interface to operate the Scan Station and direct the output.

The Scan Station 500 captures both sides of a document in one pass at speeds up to 30 pages per minute (60 images per minute), and offers Kodak’s renowned Perfect Page image processing and paper handling — in a footprint appropriate for any work environment.
