The ExactScan quality

Sunday, February 17th, 2013

What sets ExactScan apart from competition? Well, for one it certainly are the now about 400 built-in drivers for various professional document scanners, that due the lack of a vendor’s driver for Mac OS X would otherwise not function on an Apple Macintosh at all.

On the other hand it is also our high internal standards for code quality that translates to higher quality images and general scanner behavior over other scan applications, including Apple’s ImageCapture or the vendor’s own Windows software.

Case in point are our new drivers for Canon DR-series scanners. From our past experience with other scanners and drivers we knew some areas where we could improve quality and scan speed; and we continued to collaborate directly with Canon as well as carefully analyzing the bits and bytes of the Windows driver’s USB I/O. The result of this sheer endless work? The next update will drive Canon DR-series scanners slightly faster; and the auto-crop and de-skew as well as image quality will be even better as well!
