Fujitsu Unveils New ScanSnap Scanner Designed for Simple, One-Button Scanning of Bound and Over-Sized Documents Such as Books, Magazines and Newspapers
The ScanSnap SV600, Equipped with Versatile Imaging Technology and Page Turning Detection Functionality, Quickly Converts Hard-to-Scan Objects Into Digital Documents
Sunnyvale, CA, October 7, 2013 — Fujitsu, the market leader in document imaging scanners, today introduced the newest addition to its award-winning ScanSnap product lineup, the ScanSnap SV600, featuring a new versatile technique to quickly and easily digitize bound, fragile and large documents such as magazines, books, newspapers, drawings, photos, paintings, business cards and much more. While still maintaining the ScanSnap legacy of providing easy-to-use one-button scanning and advanced imaging technology, the SV600 utilizes its compact scanning design to turn hard-to-scan objects into PDF or JPEG files which can then be easily stored, shared and accessed.
The ScanSnap SV600 is equipped with new “Versatile Imaging Technology” (VI Technology) allowing the scanner to minimize the unevenness in image quality and generate a smooth, uniform digital image that looks natural to the reader’s eye. This is important when scanning thick, bound and uneven documents such as books, magazines and artwork. Its single camera scan functionality also gives users the ability to scan valuable and delicate documents without ever touching the surface.
The ScanSnap SV600 also includes “Book Image Correction” and “Page Turning Detection” functionality. The Book Image Correction compensates for the curvature in open books or magazines and automatically corrects the distortion in the scanned image, and then you can confirm and fine-tune the images on the preview dialog after scanning. Its Page Turning Detection automatically identifies when a page is turned for continuous, hassle-free one-button scanning.
Check out this video tutorial of the ScanSnap SV600 for a glimpse into its versatile scanning features.
“The ScanSnap SV600 adds an entirely new document imaging feature set to the ScanSnap scanner line providing customers with a compact, yet feature-rich scanner capable of digitizing documents such as books, magazines and artwork,” said Scott Francis, senior vice president of marketing, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. “It’s the perfect solution for anyone looking for a simple, efficient, and affordable way to preserve those hard-to-scan documents and access them anywhere, anytime.”
Additional Details of the new ScanSnap SV600
The ScanSnap SV600 allows users to quickly transform their paperwork into editable documents at the push of a button. It can scan large documents up to 1.18 inches high and 11” x 17” in length in less than 3 seconds (600dpi, color) and is capable of scanning multiple documents at the same time, such as business cards or photos, which can then be automatically cropped into individual digitized documents. Additional feature details and in-box software of the ScanSnap SV600 include:
- Versatile Imaging Technology:
The scanner is equipped with “VI Technology” combining a deep depth of field lens, CCD linear image sensor and high directivity LED lamp to minimize unevenness in image quality and prevent the scans from being affected by the surrounding light to generate smooth images even when scanning from a distance.

Bundled with Rack2-Filer Smart with Magic Desktop, users are able to efficiently scan books or magazines and organize them into graphical e-binders and virtual cabinets. Users simply place a bound document under the scanner and let its Book Image Correction do the work. This feature compensates for the curvature in open books or magazines to flatten the distortion in the scanned image by accurately detecting the outlines of the pages and inferring the height of the documents. Users can also utilize the SV600’s Page Turning Detection, which automatically identifies when a page is turned for continuous, hassle-free one-button scanning. Users can then fine tune scanned images in the preview dialog if necessary, create thumbnails using the front and back cover of a scanned book, and file away in the virtual bookshelf for anywhere, anytime access of their digitized books.
- Multiple Document Detection:
With a simple push of a button the Multiple Document Detection function allows users to automatically scan and crop several documents into one scan when placed within the scanning area. Place multiple business cards, photos or clippings and watch while the SV600 intelligently crops and rotates each one.
