Kawasaki, Japan, September 9, 2014 – PFU LIMITED., a subsidiary of Fujitsu ltd, today announced the launch of a new lineup to its award-winning ScanSnap product series, ScanSnap iX100. The new scanner is not only the world’s lightest and fastest scanner[*1], but it is also equipped with Wi-Fi connectivity and built-in battery to provide users with ultimate portable scanning experience – whether at home, in the office or on the road. The light, ultra-portable and wireless document scanner enables users to scan photos[*2], documents, or business cards directly to any device platform or cloud services via Wi-Fi without worrying about the Wi-Fi network environment and tangled by the cables. In addition, the Fujitsu ScanSnap iX100 succeeds the same image processing engine as the high end model, GI processor, to ensure smooth transferring of clear scanned image in one touch to a PC or Mac computer and mobile devices.
(Supports Window® / Mac OS / Android™ / iOS )
“Our new ScanSnap iX100 is the world’s lightest and fastest scanner with advanced image processing engine ‘GI processor’, Wi-Fi connectivity and built-in battery,” said Senior Corporate Executive Vice President & Group President, Kenichi Miyamoto, PFU Limited. “The GI processor is able to convert the scanned image, such as business cards and photos[*2], into clear image data in JPEG/PDF format unlike taking from a digital camera. We constantly upgrade our ScanSnap scanners to match the current trend. Nowadays, besides computers, mobile devices such as tablet and smartphones are a must to every business person with more and more people working outside of the office environment. With the built-in Wi-Fi connectivity in iX100, users can scan wirelessly even there is no Wi-Fi network available. The ScanSnap iX100 is a tiny but reliable scanning partner that enhances work efficiency.”
Even with the built-in battery and Wi-Fi connectivity, the ScanSnap iX100 is merely 400g in weight, and allows users to scan up to 260 sheets (A4, color, simplex, 300dpi)[*3] when fully-charged. Documents can be scanned anywhere even in locations where AC power is not available. The scanning speed has also upgraded to 5.2 seconds per page (A4, color, 200/300dpi) which is 30% faster than the existing model. Using the continuous scanning function, multiple documents can be converted into PDF format for viewing and sharing in a snappy speed.
The ScanSnap iX100 is equipped with built-in Wi-Fi which is able to automatically detect and switch to the network environment at home, in the office or on the go. Users only need to set up initially and iX100 can be scanned wirelessly directly to any platform even without Wi-Fi network in the environment.
|At home: Connect via the access point of router at home|
|In the office: Connect via the secured Wi-Fi network environment IEEE802.1X

|On the road: Connect using the ad-hoc mode without an access point|
Besides the existing powerful, advanced, easy-to-use features of its predecessor, the additional intuitive features aim to maximize efficiency and minimize time for scanning. New and innovative features of the ScanSnap iX100 include:
