Today, Fujitsu announced the release of ScanSnap iX1600 and iX1400 in Australia and New Zealand, the latest models in the ScanSnap1 Series.

The ScanSnap iX1600, our latest flagship model in the ScanSnap Series, enables higher scanning speeds of 40 ppm/80 ipm (A4-size documents, colour, 300dpi), which is 33% faster than its predecessor, iX1500. In addition, the iX1600 holds better functionality, usability and enables a stress-free operation through faster a start-up time. It also has a Searchable PDF generation, which is capable of turning 10 pages (20 sides) in a mere 25 seconds2.

The ScanSnap iX1400, the iX1600’s cousin, is a one-button USB connection model with simple operation. Retaining the basics of the iX1600, the iX1400 is an economic model ideal for scanning to the computer.
