Detailed Features

Scanning and sharing information with your colleagues couldn’t be simpler. Canon’s new ScanFront 220/220P colour network document scanners redefine ease-of-operation thanks to a huge colour touch screen and instant network access - without additional hardware or software.

Easy scanning

The ScanFront 220/220P makes scanning and distributing information easy. Simply place your document in the feed tray for scanning and choose the relevant icon to determine where you want to send it: an email address, ftp address, network folder or USB memory stick.

It’s so easy to operate, you can use it anywhere in the office: marketing department, sales group, finance department, or admin and logistic teams.

Compact and ready

The ScanFront 220/220P is deceptively small and fits comfortably on the corner of a desk. Fold away the document trays and it’s smaller still. There’s no need for hardware or software – the ScanFront 220/220P simply plugs directly into your network.

Simple yet productive

A bright and sharp 8.5” colour touch screen is designed to make everything effortless. Before sending you can browse, rotate and zoom scanned images in detail to ensure the perfect results every time. Job buttons can also be setup to perform regularly undertaken scanning tasks at a single button-touch.

Top scanning speeds of 26 pages per minute (at 150 dpi) in black and white/greyscale and 16 pages per minute in colour ensures maximum productivity. Doubled sided speeds are 52 and 16 images per minute respectively. For the highest quality, the optimum resolution of 600 dpi can be used.

Advanced features such as Automatic size detection, Bleed through and background noise elimination, automatic deskew, Skip Blank page and OCR functionality, ensures maximum productivity. And reliable feeding technology –including advanced doubled-feed detection* - means anything from A4 documents to 300 gsm embossed business cards can be confidently handled.

Advanced security

It’s simple to configure the ScanFront 220/220P so that users must enter a name and password before scanning and sending a document. Alternatively, a Fingerprint Authentication system can be used*. Specific functions can also be made off limits to certain users and PDFs can be encrypted before sending - retrievable only with the relevant password.

* Ultra-sonic Double feed Detection and Fingerprint Authentication is only available on the ScanFront 220P.

Unique and Easy Customisation

A Software Development Kit (SDK) is available to integrators to develop unique scanning capture solutions with the ScanFront 220/220P Network Scanner. Further information about the SDK is available to integrators through Canon’s Business Solutions Developer Programme (BSDP).
