Scan-Optics to Launch New Products, Logo and Company at AIIM
Press release from the issuing company
Manchester, CT - May 15, 2006 - Scan-Optics, LLC, an internationally acknowledged innovator and provider of capture and recognition solutions, today provided AIIM 2006 attendees with a preview of what to expect at this week’s tradeshow and conference, booth 1301, May 15-18, 2006 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. During the event, Scan-Optics will introduce four new products, as well as unveil a new corporate logo and company focus.
At AIIM 2006, Scan-Optics is taking document classification to a new level with the introduction of Onyx, a new low cost recognition and classification system. Onyx is the first scanner on the market to integrate inline OCR through standard ISIS and TWAIN drivers. Onyx identifies forms through a variety of recognition techniques including OCR, Bar Code, Patch Code and MICR and intelligently classifies not only the images but also the original documents. For users that need to classify hard and soft copy at high volumes, Onyx is simply the most cost effective classification system in the market.
Also in the Scan-Optics booth, visitors will see Capture Quality (CQ), an enterprise level capture platform designed to seamlessly integrate into any image-based workflow. CQ is a modular system built on an open architecture and designed from the ground up to make image capture and distribution more cost effective. CQ is designed to support any ISIS based capture device. CQ also provides supervisory tools for defining output parameters associated with jobs, batches and images, creating output streams conforming to industry standard file formats (i.e., JPEG, TIFF, PDF, and XPS) and commonly used workflow solutions. CQ is easily integrated into any document management infrastructure through built-in user exits and call back functions.
To demonstrate the power of CQ, Scan-Optics will be showing a turnkey solution for managing departmental records utilizing CQ and Microsoft's new SharePoint architecture. CQ natively supports Microsoft's new XPS file format and Scan-Optics is developing an integrated suite of components to support its efforts to be a leading provider of SharePoint solutions. SharePoint components are scheduled to be available this fall through Scan-Optics’ Professional Services Group. The AIIM demonstration will show the company's ability to create low cost document management solutions that are open and scalable.
Onyx and CQ will be available through the company’s growing network of channel partners by mid-year.
Scan-Optics will also reveal a prototype of Sonar EX, the long awaited next generation of Scan-Optics’ near-line recognition solution. Sonar EX blends the best of recognition, automated validation, and reject repair technologies to produce the industry’s most efficient and cost effective solution for data capture. Sonar EX utilizes multiple recognition engines and a proprietary balloting process for comparative analysis. Sonar EX also offers streamlined solutions for domestic and offshore data perfection. Delivery of the product is scheduled for fall 2006.
Ideal Image will be shown at the AIIM Expo integrated into Scan-Optics' SO Series and Onyx scanners, and CQ software. Ideal Image is a comprehensive set of tools for image enhancement that integrates seamlessly into capture software and scanning devices. With Ideal Image, users have a wide array of image enhancement features to choose from including removing blank pages, black borders, streaks, shading, unwanted lines, and other noise. Ideal Image can also enhance an image through deskew, despeckle, smoothing, dynamic thresholding, or even repair characters and fill holes. Ideal Image is a powerful set of tools that ensure every image is an ideal image.
The Scan-Optics booth will also feature a renewed emphasis on partnering with live demonstrations conducted by AnyDoc, Image Access, Viking Software, Results Engineering and Orbograph. The demonstrations will highlight a number of image capture applications including claims, mortgage, tax, and remittance processing, document classification and Orbograph’s Key Pay. Attendees are urged to visit the Scan-Optics booth, number 1301, May 15-18, 2006 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
Rounding out Scan-Optics’ presence at AIIM 2006 is the company’s new corporate identity, web site, and focus on Innovation through Integration -- taking the company’s cutting edge, industry-leading hardware and software and making it even easier to integrate customers’ increasingly sophisticated systems and processes. The company continues to focus on creating the most value for its customers and partners through image capture and recognition, strengths that have allowed Scan-Optics to enjoy a leadership position in the industry for three decades.
