ExactScan 2 1 update
ExactCODE has released an upgrade to its scanning software, ExactScan 2.1. The latest version is claimed to offer speed improvements, and support for scanners with TWAIN drivers. Copies can now be made using a scanner and printer, and a new option automatically detects and removes blank pages, with adjustable sensitivity settings. ExactScan uses image enhancement algorithms to detect and correct cropping and skewing of pages, with automatic thresholding to adjust the darkness of black-and-white documents.
Users can save scans as PNG, JPEG, JPEG2000, TIFF, or multi-page TIFF and PDF files. The scanner can be monitored in the background, and individual profiles can be managed, allowing a system to be set up for automatically running the same operation, such as scanning directly to a PDF. ExactScan is available from ExactCODE for $120.
