KUALA LUMPUR: Canon has new high-speed cheque scanners, the CR-135i and CR-190i. These products dovetail the ongoing adoption of improved cheque-transport technology by finanical institutions.

The scanners employ the Image Quality Assurance (IQA) function, to ensure that the output images comply with quality requirements for the industry, the vendor said.

It said that equipped with IQA, its scanners enable financial services firms to improve the efficiency of their payment procedures and treasury management, by processing more cheques with greater accuracy in a shorter period of time.

This can result in faster access to funds, reduced operational costs, and increased return on investment, according to Canon.

“Speed is a sought-after feature because every minute can make a difference to the work produced,” said Ooi Chik Hoe, assistant director of the business imaging solution division at Canon Marketing Malaysia.

“Coupled with reliable paper handling and precision image technology, the scanners are an optimum and cost-effective solution for verticals, such as financial institutions, utilities, and other organisations handling large volumes of cheques.”

The two devices offer exceptional MICR (magnetic ink character recognition) and OCR (optical character recognition) data capture, with improved accuracy of up to 1,200dpi (dots per inch), he added.

Canon’s CR-135i scanner achieves speeds of up to 135 cheques-per-minute (cpm), handles up to 24,000 items per day, and performs real-time dynamic four-line endorsement.

It also includes two 200-item eject pockets that can be used individually for increased capacity. These eject pockets are supplemented with an additional 50-item pocket for three-way sorting.

The CR-190i, on the other hand, runs at a top speed of 190 cheques-per-minute, while simultaneously and accurately reading MICR code-line data, capturing and processing images, imprinting endorsements, and sorting documents into output pockets.

With a suggested daily volume of up to 24,000 items, the CR-190i comes standard with a high-capacity 250-item built-in automatic feeder, which allows for on-the-fly addition of cheques while the device is actively scanning.
