Press Release: March 11, 2010
both of which were released by Canon in April 2009. These high speed document scanners were awarded in BLI's Autumn Pick as Outstanding Low-Volume Production Sheet-fed Scanners both picking-up coveted Outstanding Achievement Awards.
For over 45 years, Buyers Laboratory Inc. (BLI) has been the number one source for unbiased and reliable intelligence for the imaging industry. With proven, controlled techniques, accurate reporting and its eagerly awaited annual Pick of the Year awards, Buyers Laboratory Inc. (BLI) is universally acknowledged as something of an authority in the document imaging industry and its accolades have always been keenly sought out by the major imaging solutions manufacturers.
The Canon imageFORMULA DR9050C and DR6050C were chosen in the BLIs Fall Pick awards, with two Outstanding Achievement Awards. The two models were released by Canon last year with the aim of incorporating higher scanning speeds, boosting energy efficiency and improving ergonomics.
BLI highlighted the DR9050Cs high quality features and outstanding value and were particularly impressed by the its excellent software functionality, simple set-up, easy-to-use hardware and the huge range of one-touch scan profiles from the control panel, no to mention its Duplex document scanning abilities. BLI also noted that unlike many higher priced models, the DR9050C high speed scanner offers production level scan speeds at a price that is markedly lower than the average of scanners in its productivity range maing the DR9050C a fast document scanner. BLI Test Technician, Joe Ellerman commented,
Despite its lower price, [the DR9050C] doesnt skimp on image enhancing features. It offers more than youd expect, including automatic colour detection, two text enhancement features, moir reduction, reverse image, binder hole removal and custom colour drop-out.
The Canon imageFORMULA DR 6050C professional scanner was singled-out more than anything else for its exceptional reliability but also a broader range of image processing features than typical low volume production scanners would usually be able to afford,
The Canon imageFORMULA DR 6050C provides a complete package for virtually any user, with an easy-to-use control panel and the fastest tested scan speeds of production scanners in its speed range,
was Joel Ellermans assessment.
On hearing of the awards, Trevor Dodsworth, Head of Product Marketing, Canon Business Solutions, UK, was delighted,
