OMR Scanners with Image

Stop Press : New OMR scanners in 2016

It is anticipated that Scantron will release brand new OMR scanners in the second half of 2016. The first is called the Insight 700c, where the ‘c’ stands for colour. As soon as we have pictures of it, and confirmation of its speed at around 5000 sheets per hour, we will post them here.

iNSIGHT 4ES OMR Scanner with Image

I4es side 764 x 338 The first of our OMR scanners with Image shown here is the groundbreaking iNSIGHT 4ES from Scantron. It has both ‘red light’ OMR read head capabilites for scanning OMR only forms, and a ‘white light’ image read head for scanning whole documents and then using software to extract OMR, OCR, ICR, barcode and image clips from the page just scanned. The scanner is rated at 2200 sheets per hour in image mode, or 2800 sph in OMR only mode, so will easily cope with most applications, and comes as an optional single sided or double sided machine.

This sophisticated and versatile scanner will work with a variety of different software applications when working in OMR mode. However it will only work with ScanTools Plus  and Edumetric when working in OMR+Image mode. The iNSIGHT 4ES scanner also has an optional select output stacker and can automatically feed 80-100 forms through the scanner from its input tray.

iNSIGHT 30 OMR Scanners with Image

It has a ‘white light’ image read head for scanning whole documents and then using software to extract OMR, OCR, ICR, barcode and image clips from the page just scanned. This has a higher throughput rate, so will scan up to 3600 sheets per hour working in conjunction with ScanTools+ software.

The iNSIGHT™ 30 from Scantron is an industry exclusive: a desktop model scanner combining high-quality, high-speed, full-color Document Imaging technology with the proven Data Collection capabilities and accuracy of Optical Mark Recognition (OMR).

Whenever you need the speed and accuracy of an OMR scanner along with the productivity and flexibility of Document Imaging, the iNSIGHT 30 is the right solution for you. The advanced technology offers genuine versatility at a lower cost of ownership than owning separate hardware. Due to its unique blend of capabilities, the iNSIGHT 30 is well positioned to address demanding applications such as testing, surveys, attendance, grading, student portfolios, personnel records, archival, and general back file conversions.

OMR Scanners with Image – iNSIGHT 20

insight 20 OMR scannerDuring 2009, there was a ‘slimmed down’ version of the iNSIGHT 30 available, which is called the iNSIGHT 20, with the same features, apart from a slightly slower throughput rate. We have installed several of these machines over the years, and find them to be robust, economical and good value for money. These OMR scanners are particularly good in hospital environments, for applications such as alcohol screening and outpatient feedback. In 2014, Scantron launched the upgraded Insight 20plus scanner.

There are two more OMR scanners with Image available from Scantron, both of which are at the ‘top end’ of the range, and are typically used in census and national examination projects. These are the Insight 70 and Insight 150 scanners. We would be happy to talk to you about supplying, installing and maintaining these units and the optional components that are available for them.
