This Panasonic scanner features flatbed scanning for scanning passports, datebooks, and other special documents. The scanner is also equipped with a Start button, so work efficiency can be increased by quickly scanning while turning the book's pages, with no PC operation necessary. You can also use its flatbed to scan 2-page spreads from books, magazines, etc., and automatically divide the single image into two sheets. Dividing scanned documents saves time and trouble because it makes complex editing operations unnecessary. Finally, save time by reducing the number of scans with Multi-Crop - place various-sized documents on the flatbed and scan them all at once, then crop whatever parts you need. This is convenient for scanning multiple business cards and thick documents.
