Scanners Recommended for BDM

Ellucian does not provide a list of compatible scanners but has indicated that any scanner that provides TWAIN and/or ISIS scanner driver support should work.  ISIS drivers are more business focused and manufacturer's drivers have to be certified for ISIS compatibility.  Selecting a ISIS driver compatible scanner provides the lease risk to incompatibility issues with BDM. 

ISIS driver compatible scanners are listed on the EMC ISIS Scanner Listing Site (https://www.emc.com/microsites/scannerdrivers/index.htm) as provided by ellucian.  That listing can help users determine which scanner is most likely compatible and will suit their needs.

Selection should be based on scanning volume, duty cycle (continuous scanning time), functionality (like Duplexing) and durability. No one scanner is "best" or necessarily suggested because of the varying needs and requirements based on selection criteria. Experience with Epson, Cannon and Fujitsu scanners has historically been positive to this point.

Please contact your Banner lead or the BDM/imaging team in Computer Services before purchasing new equipment for use with BDM.  Typically equipment purchased at office supply stores will not meet the standards needed for use with BDM.  The following scanners are recommended for use with BDM.

The imageFormula DR series from Canon has been recommended in the past with good results. See http://usa.canon.com/cusa/office/products/hardware/scanners/high_speed_document_scanners for an up-to-date listing of all of those available.

For most needs, the Canon imageFORMULA DR-C130 is our recommended scanner. For a recommended reseller, consult with the Computer Services Help Desk.

A flatbed attachment may be purchased for all scanners in the imageFORMULA DR series.  The same flatbed attachment is used for all scanners in the series (Flatbed Scanner Unit 101).
