New Walkup Device from Kodak Takes FOSE Best of Show HonorsKODAK Scan Station 100 captures recognition in debut at government expo (March 14, 2006)
The new KODAK Scan Station 100 captured Best of Show honors in the Government Computer News Best of FOSE Awards while debuting at the technology tradeshow that serves the government marketplace on March 7-9, in Washington, D.C. The FOSE awards program recognizes the most innovative and well-designed new products used in government IT.
Introduced March 6, the desktop Scan Station 100 quickly and easily turns paper documents into digital files that can be simultaneously stored on the network and shared with colleagues across the hall, across the country and around the world.
Award winners were chosen by a panel of editors from Government Computer News (GCN). GCN is a leading source of information for the government technology community published by PostNewsweek Tech Media—a wholly-owned media subsidiary of The Washington Post Company, and the organizer of the exposition.
“GCN editors reviewed at the FOSE exhibit hall hundreds of new and innovative products,” said Tom Temin, Executive Vice President, Editorial, PostNewsweek Tech Media. “The editors, in choosing the finalists and best of show, considered innovation, value, functionality and applicability to the government’s computing requirements.”
Temin added that judges evaluated more than 200 products. Of these products, 13 were named GCN Best of FOSE and only two awarded Best of Show—FOSE 2006. In addition to the KODAK Scan Station 100, Altiris Software was recognized for its virtualization solution.
“Because it is both easy to use and produces high quality images, the KODAK Scan Station 100 brings the same one-step simplicity that people appreciate most in our digital cameras and walk-up kiosks to the office environment,” said Roger Markham, Product Marketing Manager for Distributed Capture Products, US&C, Document Imaging, Graphic Communications Group. “This is another innovative way for the public sector to maximize efficiency in its efforts to convert paper documents to digital images.’’
Additionally, the judges cited the color touch screen that enables Scan Station 100 users to convert paper documents—color, black-and-white and grayscale—into digital images for sharing via e-mail, routing to network folders, and sending to networked printers or copiers. Unlike competing products, the Scan Station 100 does not require a dedicated computer, additional software or training to operate because it connects to existing network infrastructure.
The KODAK Scan Station 100 is ideal for use in paper-intensive office environments. Applications include finance, accounting, insurance, healthcare, transportation, law offices, and government administration.
The Scan Station 100 has an expected list price under US$3,000 and is backed by KODAK Service & Support. It will be available through Kodak’s channel partners, serving business-to-business customers in mid-May.
