Canon South Africa has launched the imageFORMULA DR-S250N, a reliable, secure and productive compact desktop scanner, designed to serve busy modern workspaces. The DR-S250N facilitates quick and easy scanning and document sharing from a wide range of devices, allowing businesses to meet the needs of a more flexible workplace.

It is easy to get started as users simply scan the QR code displayed on the scanner using their mobile device – this offers instant connection to the scanner’s browser-based application, CaptureOnTouch LITE Web. The imageFORMULA DR-S250N is also compatible with a variety of devices, including tablets, PCs, MacBooks and Chromebooks – bringing flexibility and convenience to those looking to access powerful scanning capabilities within an office or shared co-working environment.

The device also features a direct scanning function.

Through Contact Image Sensors (CIS), users benefit from sharper images, less distortion, and improved text readability. Optical character recognition (OCR) can be used to create editable and searchable files.

The imageFORMULA DR-S250N device bolsters security at the network edge by making sure scanned documents do not remain in the scanner, minimising risks of leaked confidential data, regardless of how many individuals share the device.
