ISIS Xpress Features

Multi-Streaming Support

ISIS Xpress supports scanners with multi-stream technology and can simultaneously capture any two images from each scan (color, grayscale, and/or bitonal). Depending on the scanner, it can enable duplex (front and back) and/or multi-streaming. Duplex with multi-streaming yields four images per sheet. Scanning modes could include full-color, black-and-white, grayscale, binary, or RGB color dropout.

Compression & Decompression

Compress to standard document image file formats, including:

  • TIFF (Raw, Packbits, CCITT Group 3, CCITT Group 3 Modified, CCITT Group 4)
  • Color and grayscale sequential JPEG
  • DCX

In .NET, also output to:

  • Bitmap

In ActiveX, also output to:

  • HDib

ISIS Scanning

Accusoft supports and recommends the ISIS scanner driver standard to seamlessly interface scanning software with document scanners. Every ISIS driver must pass thousands of rigorous tests to fully validate its performance, compatibility, and reliability in order to achieve ISIS device certification. When you are ready to purchase, choose ISIS certified devices for all document scanners or MFPs and easily achieve plug-and-play deployment capabilities.
