DataMaster Lab Print Awards 2019 Award no7 - Best Scan Productivity   09 July 2019   

Award #7: Best Scan Productivity
DataMaster Lab is very proud to announce the DataMaster Lab Awards 2019.  This year there are some new Award categories.
DataMaster Lab is the European centre of print expertise.  DataMaster Lab has been testing printing equipment since 2009.  The teams have tested multifunction printers, digital presses and A4 machines too.  They have carried out over 10,000 individual tests on some 500 machines.  The DataMaster Lab evaluations system reviews over 200,000 different results.

Edward Bilson, Technical Director of DataMaster Lab said, "We are delighted to announce the second edition of the DataMaster Lab Print Awards.  Last year’s Awards were so well received because they are about performance in the real-world scenarios that end customers really care about.  Our evaluations are all based on data from our own Lab which is available to DataMaster Online subscribers, so the whole world can see that they are both independent and credible.  As such, they might differ from other industry awards – but you can rely on ours.
The Awards are for A4/Letter and A3/Ledger MFPs in their various market segments.  

These Awards are for Best Productivity in Scan Mode.

The Scan Productivity tests include color, monochrome and both simplex and duplex originals processed at different resolutions and compression settings.

The Award is given for absolute performance in measured images per minute across the range of test scenarios.
