The Bell & Howell Sidekick 1200 features color and bitonal (consisting of foreground and background color) capabilities. The speed and image quality is ideal for an entry-level scanner. A perfect addition to any small office environment, it handles a variety of document sizes from 2” x 2.8” to 8.5 x 14” legal sized documents. Connectivity is simple via a USB 2.0 port and 50 pin SCSI III interface (consisting of a standard port between a computer and its peripherals), the ‘do-it-yourself’ setup reduces the need for technical support saving you time and money and you can replace the rollers with minimal effort.

Featuring color, grayscale and bitonal scanning capabilities, superior speed and excellent image quality, the Sidekick 1200 is an excellent choice for workgroup applications. Sidekick’s “all-in-one-box” bundle includes the scanner, a USB 2.0 cable, Kofax’s new Capio™ professional-grade scanning application and VirtualReScan (VRS) image enhancement technology. VRS enables users to crop, control contrast, and adjust alignment and brightness; delivers superior image quality and eliminates the need to rescan documents.
