New Visioneer Patriot D40 Desktop Document Scanner with One-Touch Connection to Content-Management Systems

visioneer d40

California-based Visioneer is rolling out its latest desktop document scanner, the Patriot D40 ($495.00 SRP), a color duplex scanner and software package that’s designed for scanning, storing and organizing up to 6,000 double-sided pages daily.

The Patriot D40, which is compliant with the Trade Agreements Act (TAA) as required for sale under federal U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) schedule contracts, features Visioneer’s OneTouch technology, enabling the scanner to connect at the touch of a single button with the content- and image-management solutions used in many mid-size and large organizations. The Patriot D40 bundle is compatible with Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac PCs, and is designed for applications in government agencies, healthcare, insurance, finance, and manufacturing, with scanning of ID cards, checks, legal-size documents, and long medical forms.

The D40 also features an extra-wide automatic document feeder to handle warehouse pick tickets, auto-dealership contracts, and similar forms used with line printers. It can scan forms without users first having to tear off the sides of the document, saving time; software crops the edges electronically for a letter-size page.

The Patriot D40 scans 60 double-sided color ppm at 200 dpi resolution, or 40 double-sided color ppm at 300 dpi resolution. Optical resolution can be set for 200, 300, or 600 dpi, with Visioneer Acuity software enabling interpolated resolutions of 75, 100, 150, 400, 500 or 1200 dpi. Color output depth is 24 bits; grayscale output depth is eight bits.

The Patriot D40 will scan plastic items, such as ID cards, as well as photographs and can accept paper thicknesses in stock weights up to 110 lb. The scanner will accept pages as small as 2” x 2.5”, to a maximum size of 9.5” x 118”. Connection to the computer is via USB, and cable is included with the scanner. The scanner’s desktop footprint is 12.5” x 9.4”.

Along with Visioneer’s OneTouch and Acuity software, the scanner is bundled with Nuance OmniPage Pro, Nuance PaperPort, and Nuance Power PDF software for use with Windows PCs. Nuance OmniPage provides OCR (optical character recognition) and page-layout retention features, while PaperPort provides document-management and workflow features.

For Mac computers, Visioneer provides its Mac TWAIN driver and Scan Utility software. The Mac TWAIN drover provides many of the image-cleanup features of Acuity, including improvements to visual clarity, auto-crop and auto-straighten. All software, including user manuals, is provided on DVD-ROM. A printed Quick Install Guide is also provided.
