Avision is pleased to bring you the IS15, a small, feather light standalone scanner that can operate without a PC. Scan photos and save the images with ease to a USB flash drive or a memory card (SD/SDHC) by simply plugging your choice of storage into the device. You will be delighted to find the scanned images appropriately cropped, deskewed and ready for use straight from the IS15.

The IS15 measures only 172mm x 70mm x 40.5mm, a compact design that is no bigger than your hand and fits easily in your palm. Weighing a mere 200g, you will forget it was ever in your briefcase.

The IS15 has a resolution of 300dpi with an automatic document feeding mechanism. It can handle photos, business cards, receipts, or small memos and notes up to 4 x 6 in size. It’s fast, too, with a 4 x 6 photo scanned in color mode at 300dpi completed in less than 10 seconds.

Featuring advanced deskew and auto-crop functions built into the IS15, scanned images are processed by the hardware automatically and saved as JPG, giving you ideal results every time.

Whether it’s a USB flash drive or a memory card (SD/SDHC), the IS15 gives you the convenience and freedom to choose which media to store your scanned images in.

Scan to PC software is a lightweight utility that allows the IS15 to scan and save to any specified destination on the computer. Users can choose whether to scan to the computer or the memory card, and select the directory for storing scanned images. The “Auto Rotate Images” option rotates the image counterclockwise 90 degrees when selected, useful when scanning landscape oriented photos or documents.



Founded in April 1991 by a group of engineers with strong engineering expertise, Avision designs, manufactures, and markets a complete range of quality, high performance scanners and key components for multi-function products.


Avision is an internationally-recognized designer and manufacturer of scanners and multi-function peripherals.

The Chinese name means "rainbow light", which is a reflection of our unbridled enthusiasm for illumination. Our belief in empowering people is the driving force behind what we do, and inspires us to continuous innovations in simplifying tasks and promoting knowledge sharing.

This foundational philosophy has led us to rethink our core scanner business and resulted in the introduction of acclaimed multi-function network scanners. In 2011, we also introduced MiWand, the intelligent mobile scanner. We are pleased that Avision products have won not only the Taiwan Excellence Prize, but also the distinguished German Red Dot Design Award, both in 2012.

These accolades have reaffirmed our commitment to the mission of improving the experiences and lives of people through innovative products.
