i5850 FADGI Scanner

Serious scanning power that takes the guesswork out of FADGI compliance. Ensure that your organization’s digital records meet federal FADGI 3-Star requirements.

Developed in the USA

For years, the award-winning Kodak i5850 Scanner has been the choice of the most demanding customers in the toughest scanning environments – service bureaus, federal government agencies, business process outsourcing organizations, and corporate scanning departments. Now this scanner is available as a comprehensive FADGI-compliant solution for organizations that need to submit digital records to the National Archives and other federal agencies.

With the Kodak i5850 FADGI Scanner, you can rest assured that any digital submissions to NARA, the Library of Congress, and other government agencies will meet FADGI 3-Star guidelines—we guarantee it! In fact, Kodak Alaris is the only solution provider that certifies its scanners for FADGI compliance and provides a DICE (Digital Image Conformance Evaluation) test target to make ongoing performance checks and calibration as straightforward as possible.
