The Plustek OpticPro A360 is a large-format document scanner with high speed capabilities. It can scan A3-sized photos and documents at 2.4 seconds (300 dpi, 12â€ x 17â€).
The A360 comes bundled with image processing and document management software, including I.R.I.S. Readris 10 Pro Corporation Edition. The bundled software enables fast and secure PDF conversion, as well as highly accurate optical character recognition (OCR) and easy sharing of files over a network.
Plustek says the new scanner is ideal for graphic designers, publishing companies, libraries, schools, small office/home office (SOHO) users and for those who regularly require large format scanning such as financial institutions, government agencies, libraries, museums, educational departments, corporate enterprises, legal firms, architectures, and medical offices.
The A360 is Windows Vista-compatible and connects via the USB 2.0 port of the PC. It retails for about $1200.
