Panasonic KV-S2028C Scanner


Offering a stunning array of efficiency, versatility and optimum reliability, Panasonic's KV-S2028C workgroup scanner is optimized for front office deployment in vertical markets such as healthcare, insurance, government and financial services. With the ability to scan virtually any type of document, from business cards to legal size paper, the KV-S2028C is the perfect solution for any office desktop.

Beyond standard documents, the KV-S2028C also features the ability to scan continuous documents of up to 100" in length such as EKG reports or well logs. The KV-S2028C's extensive hardware elements are further maximized by a range of available software options. With the ability to purchase the unit bundled with either Panasonic's powerful "Image Capture Plus" or Kofax's advanced "VRS Elite Workgroup", the scanner will handle precision document reproduction and versatile image processing with ease.

Featuring a small footprint, a low-noise index and a modern design, the KV-S2028C fits comfortably into any office environment. Whether it's on a countertop at a bustling scan station or in quiet reception area, the KV-S2028C provides you with the smartest way to streamline your document management!

Automatic Image Orientation

Even when documents are set in different directions, this function detects the direction of the scanned text and automatically rotates the document into the correct direction. This boosts work efficiency by eliminating the need to change the direction of each page in advance when scanning large quantities of documents with various sizes and directions.

Compact Space Saving Design

For areas such as a desktop where space is limited, a compact space saving design is a highly beneficial feature. Panasonic's experienced design team took this into account when developing the Panasonic KV-S2028C scanner, thus creating a high speed desktop scanner with the smallest footprint possible. The Panasonic KV-S2028C also features a retractable exit tray which helps conserve space when the scanner is not in use.

Mixed Size Document Feeding

The ability to handle "Mixed Size Document Feeding" is an essential feature for any situation in which the scanner user may encounter the need to scan a multitude of different sized documents. This helps save time by feeding documents of varied sizes at the same time, from business cards to the maximum document size, without the hassle of having to continuously stop the scanning process to adjust settings or guiderails.

Reliable Ultrasonic Double-Feed Detection

In addition to its double-feed prevention roller, the double-feed prevention system is enhanced by an ultrasonic sensor that detects the double feeding of originals during scanning. This innovative design prevents double feeding, and has been proven effective even when the documents being scanned contain a mix of paper of different weights or thicknesses. Thanks to ultrasonic double-feed prevention, optimum reliability is assured even when scanning high volumes of documents.

Long Paper Mode

The highly reliable paper feed mechanism quickly and accurately scans long documents. This function boosts work efficiency by smoothly scanning long monitoring sheets, like those used for EKG documents. Documents up to 100" can be scanned as a single image.

Background Color Switching

When scanning thin papers that may allow images on the backside of the paper to show through, "Background Color Switching" allows the scanner user to switch the background color to black (standard), or white (optionally) to prevent the backside from being visible. This helps ensure that the image being scanned is scanned as accurately as possible and prevents any errors or discrepancies that could arise if the backside corrupted the image.

120 Page ADF

A large capacity ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) is an essential part of any scanning experience. Users simply place up to the allotted document capacity into the ADF in the tray and start the scan job. This allows for an easily managed scan process, and saves users time by eliminating the need to individually feed pages one by one through the scanner.

Advanced Image Enhancement

With a mixture of progressive hardware and software features, through Advanced Image Enhancement, Panasonic scanners help to create images of equal or greater quality than the originally scanned documents. This proves not only beneficial for the purpose of precise record archiving, but also allows for extremely accurate OCR (Optical Character Recognition) processing

Easy User Maintenance

Panasonic scanners are designed with the comfort and ease of use of the scanner user in mind. The clamshell design allows for full, easy access to the main paper path for Easy User Maintenance. This allows scanner users to effortlessly clear the occasional paper jam, clean the unit or replace the rollers without having to call a service technician

Image Capture Plus Software v1.3

Bundled standard with all Panasonic Scanners, the Panasonic Image Capture Plus Software is your ultimate capture solution. Featuring a wealth of image processing functionality, it ensures that you have the tools necessary to handle virtually any scanning requirement. Features of the Panasonic Image Capture Plus software include: Automatic Brightness Adjustment, Automatic Image Emphasis, Zonal OCR, Automatic Binary/Color Distinction, Double Exposure, Blank Page Removal, Automatic Crop, Automatic Deskew, MultiStream, Dynamic Threshold, Multi-Color Dropout, Hole Removal, Background Smoothing, 2-Page Separation, Multi-Crop, and more.

Kofax® VRS Elite Workgroup Software

For environments where the Kofax® Virtual Rescan Elite Software is required, Panasonic also offers the Panasonic KV-S2028C scanner bundled with the Kofax® VRS software. Panasonic scanners that include the VRS software bundle are designated with a (-V) at the end of the model number. The Kofax® VRS Elite software provides a variety of advanced scanner applications such as: Device Health Monitor, Centralized Licensing, Profiles and Customizable User Interface, and more.
