Colortrac, the leading innovator in the field of large format scanners, introduce the new ISIS® Driver for their range of SmartLF SC wide format scanners.

ISIS is the preferred method for connecting popular document scanners to Electronic Document Capture (EDC) systems. This market has traditionally focused on capturing high volumes of small format monochrome and colour documents such as insurance proposal & claim forms.  But demands from AEC, ISIS_smallSmartLF® scanners by allowing connection to existing EDC applications with minimal fuss, training or process impact.

Many larger organisations are moving towards full Enterprise Document Management systems (EDMs) and use solutions like Documentum®, LaserFiche® or PaperVision® to manage small or medium sized documents easily within their system workflow.  ISIS driver operators are presented with familiar workflow screens and processes on their workstations and making scanning large documents no more difficult than regular sized documents.

Transfer of ISIS data to ‘The Cloud’ is possible by using the new provisions for this now being built into the EDC packages by the developers (e.g. EMC® Captiva Cloud Toolkit) or simply by substituting the user’s normal local or network drive with a Google® Drive or Microsoft® SkyDrive.  Either way ISIS Cloud data transfer is a breeze.

All new SmartLF SC Series scanners come supplied with a ready-to-use ISIS driver as part of their basic scanner software delivery.  Certified and manufactured by EMC Captiva the developer, specifier and regulator of the ISIS standard, this new driver has a 2-year support and correction warranty from EMC themselves.  The driver works with Colortrac SmartLF SC 25, SC 36 and SC 42 scanners.

The Colortrac SmartLF SC series large format scanners are capable of scanning monochrome documents at 13 inches/sec. and color at up to 6 inches/sec.  To handle the higher quantity of image data from the increased scanning speed, the SmartLF SC series use Colortrac FireFly communications technology and industry standard SuperSpeed USB 3.0 serial PC interfaces.  This improves scanning productivity and reduces the time taken to transfer image data from scanner to host EDC or online storage services.  Independent tests have indicated that realistic throughputs of 273 Arch-E (36” x 48”) sized color pages per hour at 200dpi resolution or 171 documents at 400dpi are easily maintained.

Summarizing the capabilities of the new wide format scanner, Colortrac Executive Director Peter Brown commented All Colortrac SmartLF SC Series scanners use the SingleSensor, SureDrive and ClearView technologies and are Energy Star qualifiedColortrac Innovative Technologies we achieve higher scanning speed, with SuperSpeed USB3 data transfer and FireFly drivers; these unique features contribute to making the SmartLF SC series wide format scanners probably the most productive scanners available for discriminating users.”
