Pursuit of Higher Scanning Performance

The improved overall scanning performance from Panasonic, including the faster scanning speed, enhanced paper feeding and durability of the rollers, less maintenance and superior scanned image quality, contributes to greater work efficiency.

For offices and users aiming to scan documents over a network without the need to connect to a PC, the Panasonic KV-S5078Y connects to the network over a wired Gigabit LAN connection for maximum efficiency. Sharing of a single scanner in a network will help reduce the total cost of ownership. Using the Site Central Manager, the devices are always up to date. An automatic document feeder (ADF) enables duplex scanning of up to 330 A4 sheets or A3 in one single operation. Not only that, the Panasonic KV-S5078Y/S5058 allows workers to quickly, accurately and simultaneously scan documents of various thickness, sizes and lengths, eliminating the need for manual paper changes or the continual resetting of margins.

High-Speed Full-Color Scanning

Excellent performance keeps office productivity high.

This speeds up the job of turning even large amounts of daily forms and mountains of documents into data. Clean, crisp, clear scanned data is also ideal for electronic file conversion and management.

Less Maintenance

Longer cleaning cycle

The scanner glass has a conductive coating to prevent accumulation of static electricity. Since paper dust does not easily adhere to the scanner glass, scan errors decrease and the cleaning cycle can be lengthened.

Powerful Paper Feeding

Rollers with improved paper feeding performance and durability

A grooved roller and newly developed roller with a thicker rubber layer reduce slipping and improve paper feeding performance and durability. They offer a 700K roller life*, twice that of the previous ones.

* Roller life may vary depending on the type of paper used. The value shown was measured using fine paper.

Duplex Scanning

Prevents pages from being missed when scanning.

Double-sided scanning of documents from business-card size all the way to A3 can be done with a single scan. Plus, double-sided scanning is done at the same speed as single-sided scanning. This eliminates the work of pre-sorting, and prevents pages from being missed when scanning.

Mixed Document Feeding

Documents of different types can be scanned one after another.

Documents from business-card size all the way to A3 with a variety of paper thicknesses can be fed at the same time — ideal for offices that handle a wide range of document types.

* The thickness of the thickest sheet is at most 1.5 times that of the thinnest sheet.

Long Paper Mode

Even documents of unusually long sizes can be scanned.

The highly reliable paper feed system lets you scan long size documents. This is ideal for scanning electrocardiograms (EKG) or other special documents. This Panasonic single scanner handles a wide variety of applications.

Thin Paper Scanning

No more worries about scanning thin paper.

Now you can continuously scan documents that are as thin as 0.04 mm. That makes it easy to scan thin forms or vouchers. And it increases the number of situations where you can use scanning — without worrying about thin paper.

* Use Small/Thin paper mode if thin paper or paper whose length is 110 mm (4.33 in.) or less is not scanned correctly.

Single-Sided Document Alignment

Easy scanning of mixed size documents.

You can enjoy smooth scanning by aligning either the right side or the left side of the documents. This lets you simultaneously set various sizes of documents for scanning.

Intelligent Double Feed detection

Memorizes the canceled double feed detection as a scan setting.

The unit memorizes the positions and sizes of paper slips (up to 8) affixed to the original, so the user can disable the double feed detection only for the memorized portion. This achieves smooth scanning of invoices and other documents with barcode labels.

Ultrasonic Double-Feed Detection

Prevent scanning errors.

In addition to its double-feed prevention roller, the double-feed prevention system is enhanced by an ultrasonic sensor that detects the double feeding of originals during scanning. This innovative design prevents double feeding, and has been proven effective even when the documents being scanned contain a mix of paper of different weights or thickness. Thanks to double-feed prevention, optimum reliability is assured even when scanning high volumes of documents.

Double Feed Skip Function

Cancels double feed errors to simplify rescanning.

When the scanning operation stops because a double feed is detected, the user can choose to ignore the error and continue operation by pressing the button on the panel.

Automatic Image Orientation

No more worries about the document’s direction.

Even when documents are set in different directions, this function detects the direction of the scanned text in documents and automatically rotates it into the correct direction.* This boosts work efficiency by eliminating the need to change the direction of each page in advance when scanning large quantities of documents with various sizes and directions.

* The orientation of documents with many characters using text decorations may not be correct.

Moire Reduction

Faint Character Enhancement

Makes light character clear

Faint Character Enhancement makes light character clear. This is useful to increase the OCR recognition rate or to improve visibility according to the display.

Vertical Line Reduction

Detects and deletes vertical lines

Vertical Line Reduction detects and deletes vertical lines on the image which is generated by the dust on the sensor glass.

Scan to Shared Folder/FTP/Email

Scan without using PC.

If you register the scanning conditions in advance, you can scan directly to shared folder, FTP server, or Email without going through a PC.

Scan to Another PC

Scanned data can be transferred to a PC via the LAN

If you register the scanning conditions in advance, you can scan directly to PC connected via LAN just by using the job button on the operation panel.

Easy Maintenance

Maintenance costs and downtime are reduced.

The clamshell design allows full, easy access to the entire paper path, so you can clear paper jams or clean the unit without calling a service center. The rollers last a long time and are easy to replace when worn, also improving the unit’s cost-effectiveness.

Auto Erasure Security

A high degree of safety.

Scanned data is automatically erased from the scanner memory as soon as scanning is completed. This basically eliminates the danger of information leaks, and ensures the user of safe, secure scanning.

Flatbed Scanning

For scanning passports, datebooks, and other special documents.

Passports, date books, bound materials and other documents that cannot be fed through the Auto Document Feeder (ADF) can be scanned with flatbed scanning.

* The Panasonic KV-SS081 is available only when connecting via USB.

Single User Interface

Easily scan documents and booklets.

By selectively using the Panasonic KV-S5078Y / S5058 and the optional Panasonic KV-SS081, you can easily scan documents and booklets, and save them in the same document.

2-Page Separation

Easily get the data you need from each page

Use the Panasonic flatbed to scan 2-page spreads from books, magazines, etc., and automatically divide the single image into two single sheets*. Dividing scanned documents saves time and trouble because it makes complex editing operations unnecessary.


Save time by reducing the number of scans.

Place various sized documents on the Panasonic flatbed and scan them all at once, then crop whatever parts you need. This is convenient for scanning multiple business cards and thick documents.
