HP Launches Scanners for the Hybrid Work Era

Posted on May 2, 2022 by Paul Thurrott in Hardware with 8 Comments

HP today announced four new ScanJet scanners aimed at businesses of all sizes that are trying to navigate the new hybrid work era.

“Companies are re-imagining the core purpose of the office, moving from a place where people come to work to a place where people come to collaborate,” HP vice president Premal Kazi said. “As part of this, we’re seeing companies move away from large document centers where people go to print, copy or scan—to team spaces that are equipped with the right technology to enable real-time productivity and collaboration. The new HP ScanJet devices are impeccably designed for these new work environments and needs.”

There are four new scanners.

The HP ScanJet Pro 2600 f1 and ScanJet Pro 3600 f1 are aimed at small businesses that need to support the scanning of 1500 to 3000 pages daily.

The HP ScanJet Pro N4600 fnw1 targets large businesses with scanning needs for multiple users up to 6000 pages daily. This scanner also supports sending output to email, network shares, or other PCs via Ethernet or Wi-Fi and includes a color touchscreen.

The HP ScanJet Enterprise Flow N6600 fnw1 is designed for the enterprise and supports customers with heavy scanning needs of up to 8000 pages daily. This scanner supports high-speed scanning and HP’s Scan Premium, plus intelligent document capture and classification and the ability to highlight, erase, or markup scanned documents.

Each supports customized profiles for streamlining workflows, automatic detection of scan quality issues to remove vertical streaks, multi-document and book scanning to detect multiple documents and flatten curved images, and boot code checks and firmware validation to help prevent malicious threats, and each is made sustainably using over 21 percent recycled plastic, HP notes.

Businesses interested in one of the new ScanJet devices should contact their local HP rep for pricing information. Each is now available worldwide in most locations.

    The headline should probably say Scanners rather than Printers.

    For us, we need affordable 11x17 printers for our remote/hybrid printers...hard to get a decent 11x17 printer for under $1000, or even $2000.

    Do any of them do double sided scanning?

    fnw1 does that mean feeder, network, WiFi, single sided?

    From the HP site:

    two-sided, single-pass auto document feeder

      In the past, the Pro models have always done double sided scanning. The question is more, does it do single pass or double pass (i.e. does it scan both sides at the same time or does it scan one side, turn the paper over and scan the other side)?

        I work with a *lot* of scanners.

        HP network-connected ones have done nothing to impress me in the past. I'll check these out to see if they've caught up to others in the market.

        Things like being able to configure remotely, save profiles (one touch button to set all of duplex, destination, file format, colours, etc) , support a few protocols for sending, and give meaningful error messages.

        Network-twain can be nice to have for flexibility.

          I agree, I've used Fujitsu and the big, professional Epson scanners, which do hundreds of pages a minute. The HP ones were never up to those levels of scalability or simplicity of use, but the flatbed models were good for high quality scans, as opposed to quantity (E.g. if you are scanning the odd photo they are better, if you are scanning hundreds or thousands of pages a day, they were not so good).

          (The Epson scanners were for a government agency dealing with farmer subsidies, a few years back, and there were literally thousands of applications and each application was a couple of dozen pages long, so a high speed scan was required to pull in all the forms and digitally process them (lots of check boxes, for example.)
