Pleasanton, CA—Visioneer’s Mobility Air combines a cordless scanner with Eye-Fi’s 4GB Connect X2 card to allow users to transfer scanned images over Wi-Fi to a computer, Android/iOS tablet or phone, and to the cloud.
“If you have a mobile scanner, you’re not truly mobile unless you have the freedom to connect to your mobile devices wirelessly,” said John Capurso, vice president, Marketing, Visioneer. “This is nothing short of remarkable, capturing any document with only the cordless scanner and then instantly seeing the JPG image on whatever mobile destination you’ve chosen. And there’s one more thing, if the Eye-Fi card cannot find or is not in range of a wireless hotspot, it creates its own in direct mode. So you’re always able transfer your scans over Wi-Fi, no matter where you are.”
Visioneer Mobility Air measures 2×2.75×11.5 inches and functions without a computer, cables or drivers. It scans directly to an SD card or USB drive in PDF or JPG format. No power connection is required; users press the power button, insert an SD card or USB drive, press the selector button to choose the document type and insert a document or photo. After scanning, users can eject the removable memory and insert it into any computer. Visioneer Mobility is recognized as a storage device when attached to a computer, so the scanned files can be copied to the hard drive with an included cable.
Using the included Eye-Fi card, it wirelessly transfers scanned JPGs to the device or cloud destination of choice. The Eye-Fi SD card has built-in Wi-Fi, stores the images and uses a wireless network to transfer them to a computer, mobile device and more than 25 online destinations, such as Evernote, Picasa, Facebook and Shutterfly.
