Duplex scanning with one 50-page ADF. The high-capacity ADF for the ArtixScan 1200DF holds up to 50 sheets of paper.
3 programmable function buttons. The programmable function buttons on the front panel of the scanner provide you with an intuitive and easy way to access scanner functions.
Smart Duplex Scanning Support. Smart Duplex Scanning is a feature of ArtixScan 1200DF that allows to scan both sides of a single sheet by using a simple software command. It efficiently upgrades a simplex scanner to a duplex scanner, saving a lot of effort and money. Reduce your fatigue and double your productivity.
Newly improved ScanWizard DI software. All-in-one control panel offers a host of features and image adjustment controls. Supporting the TWAIN driver, ScanWizard DI also features full document scanning tools and on-screen proofing. Its multi-scanning area and preview option allow you to obtain quick scans in the preview window.
Auto-crop and Auto-deskew. The auto-crop function automatically detects the size of the original image, crops the full scan frame to fit the image, and removes unwanted black borders. The auto-deskew function automatically corrects distorted images for proper alignment.
Auto Document Rotation. With this feature, the scanner automatically rotates every saved files in a readable direction based on a specific OCR language selected.
Descreen. The Descreen function can eliminate the moire patterns when you scan a screened original, such as pictures from the newspapers or magazines. Hence, users can get pristine and clear scanned images.
Smart Threshold. The Smart Threshold function enables Microtek's scanners to define the best level of a threshold used in high-contrast and black-and-white images automatically, improving the clearance and readability of black-and-white documents.
Barcode Separator. This feature allows you to batch scan documents without starting and stopping each time a new file begins by using barcode numbers on the documents. It saves you huge amounts of time and money to organize, to index and to search files of documents in seconds, enhancing the efficiency and productivity of file management.
Remove Blank Page. With this feature, blank pages are automatically detected and removed by the software when scanning a stack of documents. This function is quite helpful especially when users are scanning double-sided documents and some of the pages only have text on the front side.
Tax note: The Internet does not mean tax-free. If your state charges a sales tax, your state requires you to pay them that tax. However, we collect taxes for sales to Kansas and California so you don't have to do that if you live in either state. We need to get the California rate after the sale, and will let you know the amount before charging your card for it. This is the same amount you would pay locally.
Our other scanner used to drive us batty, with all sorts of problems. We finally replaced it and could not be happier. The ArtixScan is a pleasure to use.
We like the hi res, too. It's great for those family photos that we used to keep in photo albums and shoe boxes.

Reviewer: Mike Lopez (San Antonio, TX)
It's really fast and the document feeder is a great feature. I can't say anything bad about it. I did find the software a little confusing at first, but once I got the hang of it I'm finding it very useful.
Highly recommended to us, did not disappoint, 10.16.2012
We're not a publisher, but did need a fast, reliable scanner. This one was recommended by a business associate who frequently needs to scan documents that run about a dozen pages each.
We are very happy that we followed that recommendation. And the price is much lower than anything comparable.
