Hitachi Blinkscan BS20U: "vertical takeoff" and USB 2.0

A simple idea of mounting a digital camera onto a support to get a variable coverage scanner has at last been commercially realized by Hitachi, that plans to present its interesting Blinkscan BS20U solution in mid-November.

Blinkscan BS20U, resembling an enlarger, features USB 2.0, can be demounted for transporting and is suitable for any scanning purposes due to its high scan speed (12 million pixels in 24-bit mode for 0.8 sec). Another advantage is the possibility of scanning volume materials, including 3D. First, the company plans to ship 4 device, A3 version to follow in December.

The scanner is compatible with TWAIN 32, supports progammable scan resolutions: 200/240/300/400 dpi, monochrome 1-bit, monochrome 8-bit (256 grayscale) and full color (24-bit) modes at 500-2300 lux. Read speed is 4 sec per A4 at 200 dpi in monochrome mode and 5 sec in full color mode. Dimensions are: 270x381.5x563 mm, supported OS: Windows 2000/XP. And the approximate price is 298 thousand yens (about $2500).
