KODAK i5800 Scanner with Controlled Dual Stacking Accessory Automates Document Separating to Drive Speed and Efficiency

Rochester, N.Y.,May 29 2013 - The award-winning KODAK i5800 Scanner is now available with an optional accessory that automatically separates documents based on size, class, or type to boost processing speeds, decrease handling time, and achieve cost savings. The KODAK Controlled Dual Stacking Accessory outputs separated documents into two exit trays, which makes them more easily accessible for further processing.

"Manual handling can slow down applications that rely on high-volume production capture to rapidly process documents," said Will Hebert, Product Line Manager for Kodak's Document Imaging business. "The Controlled Dual Stacking Accessory helps to alleviate this challenge by automating document separation, which results in fewer errors and greater efficiency."

Kodak DI Business Finds a Home

By Lisa Reider, BLI Senior Product Editor, Scanners and Environmental

Eastman Kodak Company reached an agreement with the UK-based Kodak Pension Plan (KPP) for KPP to purchase Kodak’s Document Imaging (DI) and Personalized Imaging (PI) businesses for $650 million. This agreement also settles about $2.8 billion of claims by KPP against Kodak and certain affiliates, according to the company. Other proceeds will be used to support Kodak’s recovery from Chapter 11 and grow its Commercial Imaging business. The agreement will involve about 3,450 current DI and PI employees, including those in sales, service, manufacturing and R&D. The businesses will be able to retain the “Kodak” brand and can use “Kodak” in the new company name under the new ownership. Although the agreement must be approved by the court, the company expects the closing to be in the third quarter of 2013. Kodak Pension Plan is privately held and is Kodak’s largest non-secure creditor.
