[prMac.com] Berlin, Germany - ExactScan grows to a product-family: Professional version with OCR and Barcode recognition to create searchable document on the Mac. On top of the many features of the standard ExactScan 2 version the Professional version adds a OCR engine and barcode recognition to create searchable PDF documents on-the-fly. Together with the Spotlight indexing services built into Mac OS X since 10.5 (Leopard) this features form a document management solution suitable for small-office and home-office (SOHO) environments.
Inherited from the standard ExactScan 2 are a wide variety of advanced feature from drivers to image processing, including:
* Auto-crop to the actual paper dimensions
* De-skew to automatically correct page skew
* Intelligent thresholding to black and white documents to decrease storage space
* Multiple ways to enhance the document colors
* Improvements of image processing performance
Additionally, ExactScan 2 allows to define multiple profiles to create presets of different scan tasks and settings. In combination with profile buttons directly on many supported scanners it is possible to digitalize stacks of paper with the touch of a fingertip.
ExactScan 2 Professional also includes all of ExactCODE's scanner drivers for more than 170 different document scanners, which do otherwise not come with a manufacturers Mac driver and would thus not work at all.
