Canon imageFORMULA ScanFront 300/300P Network Document Scanner


The imageFORMULA ScanFront 300P network scanner is a full-featured, easy to use and manage device for capturing, converting, and sharing documents. The ScanFront 300P was designed to simplify the distribution of business information across a network to specified destinations while improving the security of the data being shared, maintaining information quality, and lowering overall workplace costs.

The ScanFront 300P scanner is an ideal solution for capturing documents in decentralized environments. It improves collaboration by allowing users in central and field locations to capture and share information seamlessly. Manufacturing, financial services, legal services, healthcare, and other industries can benefit from easy and secure distribution of documents within their business processes. This scanner provides faster color scanning speeds and comes equipped with ultrasonic double-feed detection and a fingerprint reader for additional security.

High speed scanning

ScanFront 300P obtains exceptional scanning speeds, even with full-color documents, using parallel data transfer with a 1-line CMOS sensor and a new advanced CPU for faster processing.

Compact and robust

The ultra-compact body size of ScanFront 300/300P allows for easy placement in limited spaces, while its robust design is sturdy and strong. Rigid trays for both feeding and output fold inward to protect the screen when not in use.

Four USB ports

Four convenient USB ports provide suitable places to affix keyboards,a mouse, or USB memory. One port placed at the front right of the body ideally simplifies Scan To USB Memory execution.

Easy operation

Excellent visibility with the wide 8.4inch SVGA (800x600) high-definition touch screen allows you to have a better view of control keys and postscan documents.

Enhanced scanning functions

In addition to the already impressive line-up of image processing functions available with earlier models, ScanFront 300/300P adds such convenient functions as Auto Color Detection, Folio mode, and Long Document Scanning mode.

Network sending functions

Scan to mail, FTP, Fax, Printer, USB Memory and Folder

ScanFront Administration Tool

One window on your PC now provides the integrated device management capability for an administrator to maintain multiple scanners.

Fingerprint authentication (only available in 300P)

Not even an activation button has to be pressed. If you have a User account on the device, simply sweep your finger over the sensor to gain access. Up to 100 users can be registered to a device.

Index file creation

ScanFront 300/300P can create and send a customized index file at the same time as image file creation and distribution when sending with the Scan To Folder or Scan To FTP functions. This index can simplify file sorting and retrieval.
