With Kodak's exclusive i1200/i1300/i1400 series tethered A3 flatbed accessory, everything comes together. Sometimes you need a flatbed, but many times you don't. That's when Kodak's tethered flatbed design saves valuable workspace. Just "connect" this accessory to your Scanner and easily cruise through all your exception scanning items. When you're done, the flatbed detaches just as easily for storage away from your desktop. But don't hide it, because a tethered flatbed can serve the needs of multiple scanners in various work groups and departments.
