Two new functions have recently been added to the PaperStream Series*1, which consists of drivers and software for fi and SP Series image scanners.
“PaperStream Connector Option” is a newly added feature for the PaperStream Series software, including PaperStream Capture/ Capture Pro, PaperStream ClickScan, and PaperStream NX Manager. With this option, the software provides access to a wider range of destination options for scanned data, including cloud storage services*2, e-mail via an SMTP server, and Internet fax*3. You can enhance your work efficiency by directly sending scanned data to popular cloud storage services or by sending it via e-mail and fax.
For the scanner driver PaperStream IP (TWAIN), the “PaperStream IP OCR Optimization Assistant for fi Series” is provided. The tool assists in configuring a scanning profile and is particularly useful for documents which require higher OCR accuracy, such as documents with halftones or seals. By automatically adjusting image quality to achieve better OCR results, this tool eliminates the need for manual adjustments by users.
The fi Series, known for its high functionality and quality, combined with the advanced PaperStream Series, enhances work efficiency and productivity.
By installing the “PaperStream Connector Option”*4, users can gain access to a wider range of destination choices for saving scanned data on PaperStream Capture/Capture Pro, PaperStream ClickScan, and PaperStream NX Manager. You can configure a cloud storage service*2 as a storage destination and establish links to e-mail or fax services.
By enabling direct saving of scanned data to a cloud storage service, manual uploading is no longer required. This function is also useful in situations where it is not advisable to save the scanned data in a local folder due to security concerns.
Furthermore, the option is particularly beneficial for users who frequently send documents via fax, as it allows for cost reduction by replacing the traditional method of sending scanned data via e-mail or Internet fax.
Expanding the range of available destinations
The “PaperStream IP OCR Optimization Assistant for fi Series” parses the images within specified areas and adjusts the image quality for documents containing halftones or seals requiring OCR recognition. The tool suggests a better scanning profile after parsing if it detects an image quality setting that improves the recognition rate compared to the default setting.
You can save the created scanning profile for later use in your existing applications, such as PaperStream Capture.
By easily achieving optimal image quality for OCR accuracy without any expertise, you can save time on the profile setting while effectively utilizing scanned data.
