This software tool lets you share a TWAIN compatible scanner to be shared with more than one computer.
RemoteTwain is a solution to connect any number of workstations to your scanner. This tool makes any scanner a network scanner that can be shared by anyone with authorization over the network. Thus this is a scalable solution for small office/home office as well as banks etc., only limitation being the utilization factor. As long as individual loads are small the total load at the network scanner will be manageable. The actual device can be any scanner that is TWAIN compatible. The application will work with most Twain scanners and all Twain compliant scan applications including Adobe products. Built-in security system allows managing access to scanner and data loss is prevented. In case of the scanner not having a updated driver for Windows 7, it is possible to use the scanner on a old PC and then make that the network shareable station.
The interface has very intuitive settings available. All you need to do is set the parameters and start a scan. The parameters typically include connection related( for setting up a connection with the scanner host), Source, destination, resolution, paper size, color mode and simplex/duplex are the other choices. In the duplex mode, one can get both sides of a paper scanned. The scanned document can be enhanced. You would be able to binarize scans for improved contrast and readability. It can automatically detect if binarization is required and drop the background if that is causing some quality loss. OCR and barcode recognition is improved thereby. Some feature to correct the image skew would have been useful as that is a common problem when scanning documents. This is a handy and easy to use tool.
