No matter which model you choose, innovation and value come standard. After all, that’s what people expect from Canon’s DR-Series Scanners. That’s because our scanners offer the kind of high-performance features that make converting paper documents easier. Like high-speed precision feeding technology, compact design, high-speed color capability and even flexible configuration options. And with so much advanced scanning technology to choose from, you’re sure to find the imaging muscle you’re looking for. At Canon, we’re giving people the know-how to take full advantage of the digital office.

Our line covers everything from 130 ppm centralized production scanners, all the way down to 15 ppm mobile / distributed scanners like the P-150 Scan-tini.

We cover mobile, distributed office, decentralized (combines distributed office and centralized / production qualities), and centralized / production scanning.

Distributed office products are used as close as possible to where the work / documents originate. They are mostly for individual or personal use, with low volumes of documents, and also include mobile products. Decentralized products are typically used by small workgroups or departments, and are found in some central location within the department. Scanning volumes are higher, including small batches of documents. Centralized / production products are found in some central location within a company, or possibly even in the central corporate office of a widely dispersed company. Users are specially trained in operating these devices, which handle high volume batch scanning.
