Canon U.S.A. Refreshes Its High-Quality CanoScan LiDE Color Image Scanner Line with Two New Models

Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the addition of two CanoScan LiDE Color Image Scanners – the LiDE 220 and LiDE 120 scanners to the current lineup. These compact, lightweight scanners offer consumers affordable scanning without sacrificing image quality. The two models also feature an integrated “Send” button that makes archiving, scanning, emailing, and saving photos or important documents to the cloud effortless.

With a maximum optical resolution1 of 4800 x 4800 dpi for the LiDE 220 and 2400 x 4800 dpi for the LiDE 120 scanner, users can be confident that scans will be crisp and high quality. For tight workplaces such as a home or remote office, the LiDE 220 scanner utilizes upright scanning allowing the user to scan while the unit is in a vertical position. Additionally, since both color image scanners utilize USB-power, they have been qualified as meeting the Energy Star® energy efficiency criteria.*

“The ability to scan important photos and documents for archival and business purposes remains a top priority for our consumers,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With the introduction of these two CanoScan LiDE scanner models, Canon shows its commitment to meeting consumers’ needs for high-quality scanning that easily fit into their busy work and home life.”

The CanoScan LiDE 220 and LiDE 120 scanners feature a new “Send” button that enables users to transfer photos or documents to popular cloud services such as the Evernote® and Dropbox™. For users who want to email photos or documents, the scanners can adjust the size of the scanned file and attach it to a message for easy and seamless delivery. For crafting and scrapbooking enthusiasts, the color image scanners are compatible with My Image Garden software from Canon, which makes organizing and printing photos easy and fun. This software features facial recognition, special filters, calendar organization, automatic layout suggestions, and more.

Ideal for work scenarios that require the scanning of text documents and files, both color image scanners feature Auto Document Fix to help maintain readability by sharpening and blackening text. Another important feature, Auto Scan Mode, automatically adjusts settings by detecting the type of original being scanned, whether it be photo or text. Both color image scanners offer an Advanced Z-lid Expansion Top, which can rise to 20 millimeters for scanning thick items like a scrapbook.

The estimated retail price for the Canon CanoScan LiDE 220 scanner is $89.99** and $59.99** for the CanoScan LiDE 120 scanner. For more information on these new scanners, please visit the Canon U.S.A. website at www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/scanners/photo_scanners.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
