HARTFORD, Wisconsin--25 Sep--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

The patent protects the hardware for the ScanPro2000, a microform scanner used in the world's most prestigious libraries and private companies. The ScanPro 2000's patented technology allows it to:
  • Have a significantly more compact design than other units on the market
  • Use a single lens that includes all the magnifications required for all microfilm types
  • Have full optical image rotation
  • Provide continuous focus throughout the entire optical magnification range.

"e-Image Data takes pride in our constant innovation and commitment to keeping our customers at the cutting edge of digital scanner technology," said James Westoby, president of e-Image Data. "We consider it our responsibility to protect our intellectual property so that we can continue to move forward in providing our customers with the most dynamic product on the market."

Konica Minolta's SL 1000, released earlier this year, features technology that e-Image Data believes infringes on its patent. The technology is used in the entire ScanPro line of products, including the ScanPro 3000, the company's newest innovation for working with microfilm, which brings a 21-megapixel scanned image to the industry for the first time, providing sharpness and clarity not previously available.

The ScanPro products use patent-pending technology to link to secondary sources when a word is selected, copy highlighted microfilm areas as text to the clipboard for pasting to other programs, convert microfilm images into word-searchable PDFs and to find and highlight user-selected words right on the microfilm image. "These features have forever changed the way people work with microfilm," says Westoby.

e-Image Data is the industry leader in the design, manufacture, and distribution of micrographic equipment. The ScanPro line of products is the equipment of choice in the world's most prestigious libraries and private institutions.
