fScanX - Software for Hi-Speed Fujitsu Scanners at MacWorld
January 23, 2012 in Seminars and Events
[prMac.com] Golden, Colorado - Elevated Software Development, Inc. will be a guest in Fujitsu's booth at MacWorld on Friday, January 27th. They will demo their fScanX software, which provides broad support for Fujitsu's fi series of document scanners, with the ability to scan single- or double-sided documents in color, grayscale or monochrome directly into multi-page TIFF or PDF files at up to 135 pages per minute. In addition, the fScanX package includes an Automator action for easy workflow development, and a command-line utility for complete scripted control of scanning functions.
Current supported scanners include the Fujitsu fi-6130Z, fi-6230Z, fi-6140Z, fi-6240Z, fi-5530C2, fi-4340C, fi-6670, fi-6770, fi-5950C and fi-6800 models. (fScanX also supports numerous older Fujitsu scanner models; see the website for the full list.) Using the top-of-the-line fi-5950C, and running fScanX 1.7 on a current Mac Quad-Core or better, delivers maximum throughput of 135 pages/minute single-sided, and 270 images/minute double sided, scanning at 200 or 300 dpi (color, grayscale or monochrome).
Developed from the ground up utilizing the latest OS X technologies, fScanX is best known for its agility and speed. It offers simple installation and includes a stand-alone scanning application, an Automator action for scriptless automation, and a command-line utility for use in scripting and developing automated solutions within any development environment.
fScanX's simple-to-use scanning utility offers a natural, easy user interface and is aimed at scanning documents into files quickly with no fuss. fScanX also ships with a handy Automator action which enables very easy creation of scanning workflows without scripting. This opens up a host of possibilities for prepress operators, developers and graphic designers alike to build custom workflows involving scanning.
In addition fScanX includes a command-line utility for complete scripted control of scanning functions--because it does not require the application to launch in order to perform scanning, it gives developers the ability to control the user interface completely. This enables a host of alternative automation options. It takes only three lines of script code in FileMaker to scan a document, with similar setups available in 4D. And it's just as easy to scan from AppleScript, shell scripts, Ruby, Python, and more.
