Panini: Much more than a meal

Product: My Vision X single-document check scanner
Company: Panini North America

We think of panini as compact Italian sandwiches usually filled with cheese, salami and butter. One look at the My Vision X single-document check scanner from Panini North America, and you'll know the company name is apt. Panini's scanner is compact, yet designed to be ergonomic and robust.

Measuring 7 by 5.5 by 10.5 inches, the unit weighs 5.5 pounds. It has a triple-mode feeder: single document; batch mode, for up to 30 checks, inserted with one hand; and batch mode, for up to 100 checks, inserted by manually adjusting the pressure plate.

Introduced in September 2006, the scanner was recently added by TASQ Technology, a subsidiary of First Data Corp., to its solution for remote deposit capture. TASQ supplies the scanner through purchase, rental and lease options.

Suitable for merchants, the scanner is designed for low-volume check processing and features:

  • Infrared double-document detector
  • Auto-adjust separator rollers that enable processing a range of documents with different thicknesses
  • Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0 port
  • RS232 port
  • Panini MICR Plus proprietary technology
  • Rear ink-jet endorser capable of imprinting characters, logos and other bitmaps.

It is available in three processing-speed versions: 30, 60 or 90 documents per minute. To guarantee that batched checks stay in the appropriate order, the My Vision X provides a single pocket, capable of holding up to 100 documents and adjustable to accept documents of different lengths.

Up to four images - two front and two rear - in any combination (grayscale and bi-tonal) can be captured at either 100 or 200 dots per inch for each document. Panini's ICR Vision function allows for the definition and management of up to 10 image snippets.

The unit reportedly opens easily, without the use of tools, for cleaning or service; it provides total track accessibility for maintenance. The scanner is only available through resellers, such as BankServ and TASQ.
