) announced that it has integrated a built-in chip into its
document scanners, thus providing intelligent scanning technology
for workflow optimization.
The document scanners -- DocuMate 5445 and 5460 -- will now be
powered with On-Board Acuity, a chip built-in to the scanner, which
will deliver optimized and compressed files to the workstation.
This versatile scanning solution will reduce processing time and
errors, thus improving efficiency.
On-board Acuity involves hardware-based image processing, wherein
scanning functions will be handled by the on-board chip rather than
a connected PC. The scanner will use built-in hardware chips,
software and memory to process and optimize images before
delivering data to the scanner driver.
Hardware-based image processing can manage multiple functions with
high scanning speeds, nearly doubling the efficiency of scanning
workflow. The technology allows for advanced processing functions
such as automatic cropping and straightening, dynamic thresholding
and blank page removal, without compromising on speed.
The upgraded DocuMate 5445 and 5460 scanners also possess some new
features, such as line smoothing, adjustment of text brightness and
enhanced long document support.
On-board Acuity will apply special logic to data before and during
the thresholding procedure, enabling perfect barcode readability
and improved visual quality. This feature will allow sharp,
accurate scanning of even low-resolution data, thus improving
The upgraded scanner hardware comes without any cost increments on
