Strobe Scan

The Visioneer Strobe 400 duplex color scanner measures 11.6x2.5x2 inches and weighs 22 ounces. When used in duplex mode, the device scans both sides of a page in six seconds. The Strobe 400 offers Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface and can produce documents at resolutions up to 600 DPI. The device may be powered through a computer's USB port or via an electrical outlet. The Auto Launch technology allows the device to scan a document as soon as it's inserted into it. 


In Sync

The Samsung NC190 PC-over-IP (PCoIP) all-in-one monitor lets users connect to centralized servers without the need for workstations on their desks. The fanless screens contain no operating system, drivers or hard drives and the NC190 integrates into existing systems that use PCoIP-enabled rack workstations, towers or blade PCs. The NC190 has a Tera1100 PCoIP processor, 64 MB XDR memory, 1280x1024 resolution and four USB 1.1 ports. The NC190 also has VGA in connectivity (for a PC monitor), DVI out connectivity (for dual video) and 10/100/1000 RJ45 Ethernet connectivity.
