ExactScan 2 Pro ships
ExactCODE GmbH has released ExactScan 2 Pro, adding a professional version of its ExactScan 2 software for scanning or converting documents to PDF files. ExactScan's professional version adds optical character recognition (OCR) and barcode scanning, and can produce searchable PDF files, in addition to standard PDF and Tiff files. The pro version can also handle multi-page PDFs. The latest version of both pro and standard ExactScan, v2.7, can autoscan on paper placement, automatically crops on flatbed source and realigns paper sizes on source changes.
ExactScan 2 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher. While the standard version is a universal binary, the professional version requires an Intel-based Mac. ExactScan 2 Pro costs €110 ($155), while the standard version is €90 ($125).
