Portable, Hand-Held Scanner Saves Images to SD cards and Transfers Via USB

Cumberland, R.I. (Jul. 20, 2010) – ION (, a leader in consumer audio and entertainment technology, announces COPY CAT, a portable, hand-held document scanner with USB and micro SD card capabilities. ION will unveil COPY CAT at the IFA show in Berlin, Germany, Hall 14.1 Stand 101, September 3rd-8th 2010.

COPY CAT quickly captures papers, photos, books, and other documents on the go. COPY CAT’s sturdy, lightweight design is easy and safe to carry around, while the included protective pouch prevents any scratching to COPY CAT’s lens when in transit.

COPY CAT is slim and can easily be used with one hand. The curved exterior sides of COPY CAT allow for a comfortable handle and four rubber-coated rollers run along the lens providing smooth tracking when scanning documents. COPY CAT can scan up to 600dpi ensuring high-resolution files can be captured without any loss of quality. COPY CAT scans in full colour high resolution or black-and-white.

COPY CAT runs on standard AA batteries and writes to micro SD cards, so a computer is not necessary during the scanning process. COPY CAT supports micro SD cards up to 32GB in size, which means more than 30,000 pages can be scanned on one card. Ejecting the micro SD card and inserting it into any compatible card reader offers a convenient method of transferring scanned images from COPY CAT.  

COPY CAT also has a micro USB port to connect directly to a computer for easy, drag-and-drop transfer of scans to your Mac or PC. OCR (optical character recognition) software is included with COPY CAT enabling words within scanned documents to be converted into editable text.

“COPY CAT provides a simple, efficient solution to scan and archive all your photos and documents,” said Adam Cohen, Director of Business Development, ION.

COPY CAT will be available from August 2010.
