Agfa has lowered the price of its 1236u USB scanner to $179. The scanner features an optical resolution of 600 x 1,200 PPI, which can be interpolated to 9600, and 36-bit color depth. The single-pass scanner offers a scanning area of 8.5" x 11.7" and can accommodate an optional transparency unit. (The automatic document feeder option is available only for PCs.)
The SnapScan 1236u ships with Agfa's ScanWise software, which features automatic processing. This feature automatically finds originals on the scanbed; rotates them if they're misaligned; checks whether they're text, color or black/white; and then scans them all. Other features include:
The scanner requires a minimum G3 processor, 32 MB RAM, Mac OS System 8.0 and a CD-ROM drive. For more information, visit http://www.agfa.com. To go directly to the scanner page, visit http://www.agfahome.com/product/CatProd_DisplayPublic.html?id=116&object=Category.
