On November 4, 2009, Planon announced its DocuPen Xtreme X-Series line of scanning pens. The DocuPen Xtreme X-Series line, encompassing the X05, X10 and X50, takes portable scanning power to a whole new level of efficiency. Able to support image resolutions of up to 600 dpi (up to 1,200 dpi for the X50), the three models each feature a 200 MHz internal processor--when compared to previous scanning pen processors that max out at 60 MHz, the processors in the DocuPen X-Series make it by far the fastest line of pocket-sized scanners on the market today. * 64MB Fast SDRAM onboard memory is a full eight times greater than Planon System Solutions' current best model, the RC850. Working in conjunction with a 200MHZ processor, the X-Series' 64MB memory provides superior speed and functionality. * Bluetooth Connectivity enables all three DocuPen X-Series scanners to connect wirelessly to smartphones, laptops, netbooks and PCs for editing, storage and/or email attachment. * A brighter OLED Screen Display that makes it easier to navigate the pens' functions. * The DocuPen X-Series' Lithium-Polymer battery is both lighter, and may last longer, than previous Lithium-Ion scanner batteries.
Featuring Planon's Crystal Line Contact technology that provides extremely accurate imaging, Xtreme X-Series scanning pens exceed cameras and other portable scanners for professional reproductions of contracts, receipts, invoices, color pictures and more. The pen scanner's wireless connection takes advantage of smartphones and laptops that are allowing people to complete their office work from anywhere. The X-Series X05 and X10 models can scan in monochrome and 24-bit color modes; the X50 has extra features including higher resolution and grey scale modes. All three models offer USB 2.0 support for battery recharging and data transfer, as well as a USB Mass Storage Device function and a MicroSD expansion memory option to hold thousands of scans. Bundled software adds editing/organizing/email capability along with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) support for text-based editing in applications like Microsoft Word and Excel. DocuPen Xtreme X-Series scanning pens are priced from $369.99. Website: http://www.planon.com/
