Other image processing features include Background Smoothing and Shadow Cropping

The P-215 scanner can reach maximum scanning speeds using electrical power via a single USB cable. It is capable of single-pass duplex scanning of batches up to 20 sheets at up to 15 pages per minute in color or black and white. To complement the ADF, this scanner also includes an integrated card scanner capable of handling plastic ID cards, driver licenses, and even embossed cards
