Xerox Debuts Digital Kiosk

Xerox Corp. has introduced its new Xerox Imaging Kiosk, which scans documents and transfers them to CD-ROM, offering a system to capture, store and manage reams of documents. Each CD-ROM can hold up to 15,000 scanned images, and because it isn't dependent on a network, it can be launched from any compatible PC, advises Xerox. The Kiosk can process a 3,000 page brief in about an hour, resulting in a searchable CD-ROM, it says. Once created, the CD-ROM information is immediately accessible. The unit is portable, allowing attorneys to use it on planes, in courtrooms and in the office, says the company. Documents can be electronically printed, faxed, e-mailed or uploaded to a work station.
