Capture & Scanning
iCapture software allows you to scan and capture images from all kinds of scanners and devices, such as book scanners, multifunctionals, microfilm scanners, microfiche scanners, A4/A3 document scanners, wide format scanners, and other scanning equipment. You can also automatically import already digitized images into the iCapture software for further processing. Examples of materials that you can digitize and process include:
Scalable & Performant Capture Flow
You can design and configure different capture & process flows depending on the requirements of your project. iCapture software guides operators through each individual step of the digitization process and controls what they can and cannot do. The entire capture flow can be automated and streamlined to maximize productivity and operator efficiency. The client-server & network topology of the software platform allows you to easily scale the solution based on usage, volume and project size. All jobs and tasks are performed directly on the server. Moreover, it is possible to add as many servers as needed, which results in unparalleled scalability and performance.
Image Processing & Enhancement
iCapture software allows you to perform manual or fully automatic image processing, editing, enhancement and optimization functions. Importantly, the software makes the whole experience seamless and easy for the operator. Operators do not require any special training or skills to use these powerful functions.
