High-Speed scanning for Mac

OCR engine and barcode recognition

ExactScan Professional version with OCR and Barcode recognition creates searchable document on the Mac. On top of the many features of the standard ExactScan 2 version the Professional version adds a OCR engine and barcode recognition to create searchable PDF documents on-the-fly. Together with the Spotlight indexing services built into Mac OS X since 10.5 (Leopard) this features form a document management solution suitable for small-office and home-office (SOHO) environments.

Professional version with OCR and Barcode recognition

Inherited from the standard ExactScan 2 are a wide variety of advanced feature from drivers to image processing, including:
* Intelligent thresholding to black and white documents to decrease storage space
* Multiple ways to enhance the document colors
* Improvements of image processing performance
* De-skew to automatically correct page skew
* Special rotation option for book scanning
* Auto-crop to the actual paper dimensions
* Automatic blank page detection
* Scan 2 Print

Additionally, ExactScan 2 allows to define multiple profiles to create presets of different scan tasks and settings. In combination with profile buttons directly on many supported scanners it is possible to digitalize stacks of paper with the touch of a fingertip.

ExactScan 2 Professional also includes all of ExactCODE's scanner drivers for more than 170 different document scanners, which do otherwise not come with a manufacturers Mac driver and would thus not work at all.

ExactScan 2 Professional is available for Euro 109 and the standard version of ExactScan 2 comes for an affordable Euro 89. An upgrade from the ExactScan 2 standard version to the new Professional is available for just Euro 29.
