TOP FEATURES
Professional imaging
Produce impressive black-and-white or color scans at up to 600 by 600 dpi resolution and 48-bit color depth.
Optimize scans for text, images, or mixed text and images, and adjust sharpness, brightness or darkness, and
contrast. Get the scanning results you need:
•
Save scans in a wide range of file formats, including BMP, JPG, TIFF, TIFF (compressed), multi-page TIFF,
PNG, PDF (normal, normal with images, searchable image-only, MRC), PDF/A, RTF, TXT, UNICODE, HTM,
DOC, WPD, XML, XLS, OPF, and XPS.
•
Get better readability with background removal. This setting is useful when the original is on colored paper
or is two-sided. Removing the background can prevent blurring or streaking in the output image.
•
Automatically detect and remove blank pages in scanned output with blank page suppression.
•
Choose from three color modes: color, black-and-white, and grayscale.
•
Remove colors from scanned documents or images by filtering out a color channel (red, green, or blue).
Color drop-out can improve the accuracy of optical character recognition (OCR) results, enhance
readability, and reduce the size of scanned files.
I.R.I.S. Readiris Pro OCR
The included Readiris Pro OCR software has the power and accuracy to convert scanned office documents into
editable text and shareable digital files. Readiris Pro allows you to edit text from scanned files and easily save
scans as Microsoft® Office, PDF, or HTML files. With Readiris Pro, you can quickly convert any document into
text, reproduce the original layout, and easily convert documents into different formats supported by
applications such as Microsoft Word and Excel, and Adobe Acrobat.

•
Edit pages individually to crop, rotate, and
deskew the images
•
Reorganize or delete pages
•
Complete the scan and process the document
Improve workflow by using HP Smart Document Scan Software to create scan profiles for commonly used

include: page size and layout, auto-crop, color dropout, multi-feed detection, JPEG compression,
auto-straighten, resize, edge erase, digital stamp, background filters, delete blank pages, batch separation, and
page merge.
Take care of business with an array of document management capabilities. You can create profiles to
automatically save scans to a shared drive, an email application, Microsoft SharePoint Server, or any
application that supports command line architecture. Save scans in a variety of formats including PDF/A, PDF,
Microsoft Word, TIFF, and JPEG—so they can easily be edited, emailed, or organized.
Nuance® PaperPort®

steps in the scanning process.

RELIABLE, TIME-SAVING features
Scan with confidence—HP Precision Feed technologies keep scan projects running uninterrupted. Easily monitor
the status of your scanner using HP Web Jetadmin.
HP Precision Feed technologies
Confidently feed and capture scans—including mixed stacks of various media weights and sizes—with
HP Precision Feed, a set of innovative technologies created to ensure a dependable on-ramp to your digital
workflow. Count on reliable scanning of almost any document type thanks to these technologies:
•
A multiphase pick process separates a stack of paper into increasingly smaller stacks, while advanced
separation ensures only one page is fed through the device at a time.
•
Intelligent picking minimizes document wear and tear while ensuring that pages process without
interruption. First, the minimum amount of force required to pick a page from the stack is applied. If this
amount of force is not adequate, the roller speed and/or pressure is adjusted.
•
Mixed stack handling saves time—no more presorting input for scanning. The device is engineered to
support a wide range of media types, while maintaining high scanning performance.
•
Ultrasonic multi-feed detection helps ensure that all pages are scanned. Sound waves are used to verify that
a single sheet has been separated from the stack for processing, helping eliminate the need to count the
number of pages fed and make sure it matches the number of pages scanned.
In the event that the ADF is unable to pick a page, or if multiple pages are pulled into the paper path, the
feeding process stops and the device notifies you of the error. Pages that have already been scanned are stored
in memory, which means that you don’t have to restart your scan from the beginning.
