Scan Fast

HP20150811359The latest Jet Advantage network scanners from HP, like the 4500fn1, can make quick work of turning a variety of documents in to digital files. From tests and home work to artwork, the 4500fn1 connects wither via WiFi or a LAN cable, can scan both sides in one pass and can scan up to 60-pages per minute. The magic is that just about any connected computer can control the process and call up the results of everything from a class's artwork to a series of bubble tests. There’s also new software that can set up scans and route the files to a specific network location. It will be on sale in early January
