More productive, high-speed scanning

Work more productively with the high-speed DR-G1100 production scanner. It can scan up to 100ppm/200ipm in colour, black-and-white and greyscale.

A dedicated chip helps it achieve full rated speeds even when multiple image processing functions are selected. With a 500-sheet document feeder, larger batches can be scanned to save valuable time.

Enhanced document handling

A series of advanced paper handling features improves scanning efficiency and ensures better results, no matter the mix of document types. A flat paper feeding path ensures smoother scanning and avoids damage, especially to thin paper while three paper feeding modes provide options for reliable handling of various document types. With staple detection sensors the DR-G1100 prevents damage to documents, while the ultrasonic double feed detection sensor alerts users in the rare event of a double feed.

Designed with operators in mind

The front-feed design of the DR-G1100 provides both comfort and convenience allowing you to feed and remove documents, effortlessly, while seated. The control panel and job buttons are also designed to be easily viewable at eye-level.

Built for heavier workloads

Despite its compact size, the DR-G1100 is robustly built to handle the tough daily workflows of modern businesses, with a suggested daily duty cycle of up to 25,000 scans a day. It is a perfect solution for different business sectors, including central corporate offices and scanning bureaus.

High-quality image processing

For superb quality results every time, the DR-G1100 comes with an array of intelligent image processing features. An advanced deskew method enables the scanner to not only detect and straighten documents that are fed at an angle, but also do a second check based on skewed text on scanned images. Folio Mode allows you to scan media up to size A1. The MultiStream feature creates dual image outputs, such as black-and-white for OCR applications and colour for archiving, while the Character Emphasis feature improves legibility for better OCR recognition.

Versatile options and software

For scanning bound materials easily, connect the DR-G1100 to Canon’s Optional A3 Flatbed 201 or A4 Flatbed 101 scanner. Other options are a post-imprinter and patch code decoder. Canon’s CapturePerfect software is included for easy-to-use batch scanning with connectivity to SharePoint.
