high-volume scanner : William Harrel – Journalist

Review of the Xerox DocuMate 6710 at PCMagPROS
Exceptional accuracy. Extremely fast. Feature-rich, easy-to-deploy software. High daily duty cycle. Parallel scanning feature deploys multiple machines on the same PC.

CONS
Expensive. Connectivity limited to USB 3.0.

BOTTOM LINE
The Xerox DocuMate 6710 is a super-speedy, highly accurate high-end scanner designed for enterprises that require the fastest throughput possible.


Like most other ultra-high-end sheet-feed document scanners, the Xerox DocuMate 6710 ($6,500) is super-fast and extremely accurate. What sets this model apart, though, is Xerox’s new “parallel scanning” feature, which offers the ability to connect up to 10 scanners to the same PC simultaneously, escalating workstation throughput by as much as tenfold. What that means in the real world is increasing a scanning station’s payload from 200 images per minute to 2,000. At $6,500 a pop, that’s an expensive proposition, but for enterprise-grade scenarios that require high-volume and high-speed scanning, it’s pretty impressive.

Like several of its siblings, the i3300 quickly and accurately scans one-and two-sided documents up to tabloid-size (11-by-17 inches) and beyond. Compared with some other document scanners we’ve tested, it’s a bit slow when scanning to searchable PDF, but not enough so to detract from its suitability for midsize-to-large document-management systems. That makes it a highly sensible choice—and our new top pick—as a wide-format high-volume document scanner for large workgroups and medium-size offices.
