The KODAK i2800 won the best peripheral category at FOSE 2011.

Kodak was among the top companies honoured with a Best of FOSE award during the July 2011 FOSE Conference and Exposition in Washington, D.C.

The KODAK i2800 Scanner, a compact scanner offering numerous user benefits in productivity and efficiency, was named the winner of the Best of FOSE Award in the peripherals category. Each year, the Best of FOSE Awards recognises outstanding and innovative IT products best suited for government use.

The government technology industry relies on document imaging tools to effectively maintain both the accuracy and security of data distribution among employees. On all government levels, including local, state and federal, KODAK Scanners, Software and Services are utilised to meet shared workspace needs as well as records management requirements. The FOSE Conference and Exposition provides a forum between the public and private sector to introduce digital solutions to the government market as well as the international and commercial technology communities.

"Kodak offers a wide range of digital scanning solutions and services that not only meet the needs of our customers, but also achieve greater cost-savings and productivity gains," said Rick Churchville, government business development manager, Kodak's Document Imaging Group. "Within its compact size, the KODAK i2800 offers government agencies numerous efficiency and collaboration benefits. Kodak is honoured by the Best of FOSE recognition and will continue developing products that suit the unique needs of government agencies and offices."

From desktop to high-volume production, Kodak offers a broad portfolio of document scanning solutions that foster better practices for government employees to organise and monitor content.

The award-winning, KODAK i2800 Scanner, one of three new KODAK i2000 Series Scanners introduced this year is a compact device offering reliable performance, fast internal processes, and versatile document scanning capabilities, including double-sided materials. While small enough to work as a desktop scanner, high speeds of up to 70 pages per minute (PPM) enable smaller organisations to use the i2800 scanner as a departmental scanner.

Other recently introduced models within the i2000 Series Scanners include the KODAK i2400 Scanner and KODAK i2600 Scanner. The series includes a number of viable features that enable greater ease of use and more consistent image quality. KODAK Smart Touch Scanning feature includes up to nine pre-defined scan-to operations, while KODAK Perfect Page Image Processing Technology helps users to maintain high quality scans, using image sharpening, streak filtering and image hole file for high fidelity images.

The i2000 Series Scanners additionally serve as a cost-effective investment for government agencies. Bundled TWAIN and ISIS drivers, which are easily customisable, enable ease of third party software interoperability with Kodak's scanners, while the entire series is also backed by a three-year worry-free warranty.

For government users located across multiple offices, the i2800 scanner can help them achieve more at the point of capture by enabling images to be immediately sent to a central location for easy access-including email clients and SharePoint sites.

Additionally, using a dual LED illumination camera system, the i2800 provides exceptional image clarity, colour stability and high-speed first scans, while yielding excellent OCR read rates for increasing accuracy of data extraction. The ergonomic design of the KODAK i2800 Scanner includes the use of an upright position and a built-in handle for easy portability.

The KODAK i5600 Scanner performs at 170 PPM and allows large volumes of documents to be processed with optimised memory allocation, customised capabilities for job streams, and programmable function keys to improve processing times. The KODAK i5000 Series Scanners enables users to process and manage more data per dollar - up to 33 percent more accurately than select competitors, even with all imaging features enabled.
