The P-208II scanner is capable of scanning both sides of an item at the same time, in colour or black and white. It can handle a wide variety of document types, including thick or thin documents, and plastic or embossed cards. This scanner can also handle long documents and detect when double-feeds occur to help ensure that no data is lost. An optional wireless capability** broadens connectivity choices. When combined with the optional WU10 Wireless Adapter and Battery Pack, the scanner not only works wirelessly in Windows and Mac environments, but also with iPad®, iPhone®, iPod touch®, and Android™ devices using the free downloadable Canon CaptureOnTouch Mobile app. CaptureOnTouch Mobile is available at the App Store or Google Store. CaptureOnTouch Mobile works with iOS 4.3 or later, Android 2.3.3 or later. ** Wireless scanning requires a working network with wireless 802.11 b/g/n capability. Wireless performance may vary based on terrain and distance between the scanner and wireless network clients.
For maximum image quality, the P-208II scanner includes features to help improve text legibility of hard-to-scan documents. The Auto Resolution setting is useful for scanning mixed batches of documents and photographs, automatically adjusting the resolution to improve image quality and reduce file size. Other features include the ability to optimize images of scanned photographs, and Optical Character Recognition (OCR), to help convert paper based documents into digital information that can easily be searched, stored, and shared.
