Kodak Alaris Launches New Kodak i5250 & i5850 Scanners

Kodak Alaris has announced a new line of Kodak i5250 and Kodak i5850 scanners to help organizations meet the image-quality standards required to be compliant with the Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initiative (FADGI). All text-based records submitted to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) for permanent archival must be FADGI three-star compliant by Jan. 1, 2023.

To be FADGI three-star compliant, a device must produce high-quality images that enable researchers to note details like paper condition and weave, age, ink type and more. The images are 300 ppi and well-suited for OCR and reprint on commercial printers.

With FADGI-compliant scanners from Kodak Alaris, organizations can be assured that all digital images submitted to NARA will comply with FADGI 3-star requirements. These scanners undergo a rigorous characterization process that accounts for various device conditions that may cause variances in image quality, such as start-of-day scanning, continued use, and environmental conditions.

Upon completion of the characterization process, each device is assigned a custom device profile for the included AQIST (Archival Quality Image Scanning Tool) software. This software makes it easy for device operators to produce FADGI-compliant images from the Kodak i5250 and Kodak i5850 scanners.

"The award-winning Kodak i5250 and Kodak i5850 scanners provide the processing speed, smooth paper flow and document handling versatility needed in high-volume scanning environments," said Matthew Doolittle, WW portfolio manager for hardware, Kodak Alaris. "They're a perfect fit for Federal Scanning Service Bureaus and business processing outsourcing organizations, and now they are FADGI-compliant out of the box."

With the Kodak i5250 and Kodak i5850 scanners, you can toggle between FADGI and non-FADGI compliant modes. When FADGI is not required, the non-FADGI compliant mode can load documents in landscape mode, which allows the device to scan at maximum engine speed.

The FADGI-compliant Kodak i5250 and Kodak i5850 scanners are available now. All purchases of FADGI-compliant scanners from Kodak Alaris include professional installation, AQIST software and extended service to ensure compliant images throughout the life of the product.
