Visioneer’s 10 years with Xerox Fruitful for Document Imaging Market

PLEASANTON, Calif. — Ten years ago, document scanner veteran, Visioneer®, entered into a trademark license agreement with Xerox (NYSE: XRX) to develop, market, sell and support a new line of Xerox-branded document scanners. Since that time, Visioneer has successfully launched thirty-five new document scanners under the Xerox brand and delivered innovative solutions that help people capture and manage paper-based information in a digital world. Xerox DocuMate® scanners are now sold in over 100 countries worldwide; with great success in the United States, Russia, Mexico, Canada, United Kingdom, South America, the Middle East and South Africa.

Over the years, the relationship has been strengthened through Visioneer’s commitment to provide competitive product offerings, outstanding customer service and technical support to Xerox customers. The Xerox DocuMate product line has also earned awards from top industry media and analysts including Buyers Laboratory, PC Magazine, The New York Times and PC World Magazine.

Visioneer OneTouch® with Kofax® VRS® Technology A White Paper

“There is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come.” It’s not often that Victor Hugo gets quoted in the world of document imaging. So you should already be expecting something spectacular. Two technologies that have shaped and influenced the art and practice of making document scanners easy to use and dramatically enhanced image quality have come together.

In 1998, Visioneer changed the way that users interacted with their scanners. Previously there were multiple steps to scan a document or photo. Launching software, setting resolution, paper size, prescan, color depth, cropping, saving, etc. And the average user who was not skilled in scanner or imaging technology had no idea how or why to make these choices. So any scanning task took up to 14 steps and some techno-savvy. Enter Visioneer OneTouch. Visioneer created buttons on scanners that let the user scan with one touch to already configured settings for different applications: scan a photo, scan to email, scan to the printer (copying), etc. Before you knew it, everyone starting putting buttons on scanners. Why? Because ease of use was ease of use was more important than any other feature including price. The steak is more important than the sizzle.

At the other end of the user spectrum was Kofax. In the high speed production market where scanners eat paper for a living, there was trouble in scanned document image quality. Document quality differed, sometimes dramatically. There were of course clean laser quality documents, but also faded copies, unclear faxes, colored multipart forms, highlighted text, etc. And at one scanner setting, some pages scanned fine and others were illegible. At speed greater than 100 pages per minute, there was  no time to go back and adjust settings for imperfect originals and then return the fixed  scan to the digital stack. So Kofax developed Virtual ReScan or VRS. VRS intelligently makes 1998 Visioneer OneTouch Ad  custom adjustments to each scanned page in a stack of mixed quality documents so that every page is adjusted to a crisp and clean image without impacting the speed of the job. This not only improved image quality for the human eye, but the computer’s eye as well since OCR accuracy dramatically increased with improved image quality.

Visioneer Debuts Acuity Image Enhancement Tools

<p><b>Nov 07, 2011</b> PLEASANTON, Calif. – Visioneer, Inc., a leader in intelligent document imaging solutions announced today Visioneer Acuity, a collection of advanced document imaging enhancement tools that allow both manual and automatic editing of scanned documents and improvement of visual quality.</p> <p>Using sophisticated algorithms, Acuity can detect the color and size of pages, remove blanks and rotate images based on content. It also automatically cleans up black and white output using dynamic threshold and de-speckling, or manually with normal threshold techniques by dropping un-necessary colors, or selecting methods more suited to particular document types resulting in improved OCR accuracy or reproduction of image content. This ultimately results in less time spent manually correcting results after capture.</p> <p>“The technology behind Acuity is complex, but thanks to integration with our OneTouch, TWAIN and WIA drivers using DriverPLUS results can be achieved with the touch of a button,” said Jon Harju, CTO at Visioneer. “Take a random stack of pages from your desk. Unless they came directly from a laser printer, they probably have a few marks on them, highlighted notes, stamps, wrinkles or smudges, and even a page or two upside down. Turn on all the automatic settings and Acuity adjusts every image while scanning to a crisp and clear result.”</p>
