    SINGAPORE, 25 September 2018 - Canon today announced the launch of two new CanoScan LiDE scanners to deliver versatile solutions for home and office workstations. Offering convenient solutions to digitise documents, the CanoScan LiDE400 and CanoScan LiDE300 combine incredibly compact profiles with fast scanning speeds.
     
    “Canon continues to set design and productivity benchmarks for consumer flatbed scanners. The new CanoScan LiDE400 and CanoScan LiDE300 provide versatile scanning solutions suitable for home and office,” said Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore. “Stylish and slim in design, the new additions to the CanoScan LiDE scanner line-up make scanning with clarity and accuracy a breeze.”
     
    Delivering Powerful Performance with Low Power Consumption
    Equipped with a contact image sensor (CIS), the CanoScan LiDE400 and CanoScan LiDE300 draw its light source from a low-power light emitting diode (LED). The CanoScan LiDE scanners require virtually no warm up time and come to life swiftly with a single USB connection to a computer. It takes just eight seconds and 10 seconds to complete a colour A4 document scan on the CanoScan LIDE400 and the CanoScan LiDE300 respectively.
     
    Complementing this efficiency is Canon’s Auto-Scan mode that intelligently recognises different types of originals during scanning, before automating scan-and-save settings to maximise image quality, contrast, and content legibility. Both devices also support Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to capture text on documents to a high degree of accuracy.
     
    The CanoScan LiDE300 features a maximum optical resolution of up to 2400 x 4800dpi, delivering high resolution scans of photos and documents. The CanoScan LiDE400 has a maximum optical resolution of 4800 x 4800dpi and creates an additional space-saving advantage by supporting operation in two positions - upright standing, as well as a horizontal orientation.
     
    Multiple Page PDF Filings Made Easy
    The new CanoScan LiDE scanners feature integrated ‘EZ’ buttons that enables users to easily access the scanner’s function for convenience and workflow productivity.
     
    Equipped with the Scan to PDF buttons on the scanners, the process of digitising multi-page documents minimises the number of user interactions with client-side software, making the user experience fast and easy despite the lack of a built-in document feeder tray.
     
    Image Enhancement Features
    The new CanoScan LiDE scanners can scan bulky books, magazines or document stacks,- thanks to an Advanced Z-lid design that allows extension of the scanner lid up to 21mm in height. The bundled software’s Gutter Shadow Correction feature automatically reduces darkened shadows captured along the spine between two pages of a book, further optimising image appearance.
     
    Pricing and Availability
    The CanoScan LiDE400 and CanoScan LiDE300 are available at all authorised local Canon distributors and dealers at the recommended pricing of S$169 and S$129 respectively.
