Canon launches next generation of production scanners with enhanced network connectivity

LONDON Canon, world-leader in imaging solutions, has announced a significant update to its award-winning range of imageFORMULA production scanners. The new imageFORMULA DR-G2090, DR-G2110 and DR-G2140 offer a strong solution for businesses with high volume scanning needs. Combining Canon's latest hardware and software technologies, the new series delivers higher speed, lower noise and additional LAN interface for A3 scanning.


The new models use Canon’s latest CIS sensor technology and newly developed onboard DR processor chip to enable high speed scanning and image processing of up to 280 images per minute in colour, at a resolution of 300dpi. Additional productivity enhancing features include a large capacity 500 sheet feeder for handling larger scan batches without interruptions, and Fast Start Scan to minimise delays after the start button is pressed.


The imageFORMULA DR-2110 and 2140 models are the first production scanners to offer both an embedded LAN interface as well as USB connectivity, enabling customers to save on both costs and desk space by eradicating the need for a dedicated PC or software application. The series has also been updated with a document scanning software development kits (SDK) to enable customers to fully meet the individual needs of their organisation. The SDK provides the tools, resources and code that developers need to build new applications and innovative document imaging solutions. The open API and ability to build bespoke experiences on top of the Canon platform means that new devices fit seamlessly in to any existing working environment and perform alongside existing workflows. The scanners also include ISIS/TWAIN/WIA and Kofax VRS Drivers supporting integration into various scanning applications.


Designed to deliver consistently high-quality images, the imageFORMULA DR-G2 series is optimised for accurate data extraction, workflow processing and archiving into document management systems. The devices also offer a new image processing mode, Active Thresholding, which allows customers to scan mixed documents with different texts, colours and backgrounds without adjusting imaging settings. Active Thresholding compensates for variations in document background by automatically adjusting brightness for each page.


Canon Europe is today also announcing the release of the NA10 and WA10 Network Adapters that allow several of Canon’s USB scanners to be connected directly to the network. Businesses can now share a single scanning device across users in an office, and position in customer facing locations where space may be limited, enabling immediate processing without the need for a PC. The devices offer simpler task management for push scanning - the ‘easy job button’ provides shortcuts to scanning functions, saving time on set-up. The NA10 model comes with wired LAN connection interface while the WA10 model additionally offers a WiFi interface. Both models will be available across Europe in November 2018


Canon is also pleased to announce that it will be releasing a series of new software development toolkits to support closer integration between its scanner technologies and customer applications and systems. These include a DR Web SDK for easy integration with web-based applications, a new DR- Scanner SDK for bespoke integration, and easy platform for capture application development, as well as new embedded SDK for Canon’s ScanFront 400 Network Scanner.

How has Google avoided being hacked!

Google recently declared in Daily Mail Online that NONE of its 85,000 employees had been hacked since deploying physical security keys in 2017, which protect each employee's PC and prevents hacking. Impressive stuff!

They are so happy they are now selling their own security keys for $50 each so that other companies can follow suit.

The YubiKey range takes two factor authentication to the next level, right out of the box. Requiring users to have both a password and the physical key means that even if a user's password is compromised, nothing can be accessed without the key.

YubiKey supports both PC and Mac platforms as well as many of the most popular business applications.

Talk to the security experts at Northamber to learn how YubiKey can protect your customers.
