Black Ice Software provides a powerful set of tools spanning the full spectrum of digital imaging, including in-depth support for image acquisition through industry standard interfaces from a wide variety of hardware devices.
Black Ice Software's Imaging toolkits allow developers to control any scanner or digital camera that has a TWAIN device driver. Developers have full control over the scanning functionality allowing for complete flexibility and control over all scanning processes, including batch scanning.
Today’s modern scanners are equipped with a document feeder and through the document feeder it is possible to scan in hundreds of documents in one single session. The user inserts the documents into the document feeder, starts the scanning process and the scanner will scan the documents one after another.
The Black Ice imaging toolkits makes batch scanning easy. The user simply specifies how many documents he/she wants to scan in, loads the documents into the document feeder of the scanner and Black Ice imaging toolkits will do the rest. The scanned documents can be saved into several single-page or one multi-page TIFF file. Additionally, batch scanning jobs can be broken up into separate TIFF files based on separator pages, such as blank or black pages, or by detecting barcodes using the Black Ice
Barcode SDK/ActiveX Scanning support is now based on the latest TWAIN 1.9 drivers. With the latest drivers, application developers now have total control on almost every aspect of the scanning process. Parameters that affect the way that documents are being scanned can be retrieved and changed. Applications now can set the brightness and contrast of the scanned documents, they can specify the area of the document that should be scanned and they have control over the resolution and the color depth of the scanned image.
And this is not all. When batch scanning is combined with other powerful Black Ice document imaging features like de-skew, black border removal or punch hole removal, the result will be a totally automated image processing system.
