ScannerVision™ Introduction and Concept

ScannerVision™ is truly vendor and platform independent.
Adaptable to the needs of existing scanning systems
and storage systems regardless of brand.

The technology and functionality in ScannerVision™
is utilised by organisations to facilitate policy-driven
data capture and storage.

It is designed around the belief that operators should be insulated
from the complexities of document processes and policies,
in order to increase efficiency, minimise errors and
reduce training requirements.


    The ScannerVision™ functionality

    Can be categorised into three groups:

    • CAPTURE:

    • File capture via multifunctional, desktop client or existing electronic media
      (such as PDF/A or TIFF file archive).


    • PROCESS:

    • Image enhancement; form, character and barcode recognition, transformations.


    • STORE:

    • Transfer to document storage system or distribution
      via corporate address book to file server.


    Document workflow templates are created centrally
    (by a system administrator) and automatically distributed to each
    scanning client connected to the ScannerVision™ Processing Engine,
    ensuring all users have the correct settings and policies at all times.


    ScannerVision™ Components

    ScannerVision™ is made up of several components
    which can be categorised into four sections:

    • Clients:

    • Input functions such as desktop, multifunctional embedded devices and web.


    • Modules:

    • Throughput processes such as character, barcode and marks recognition.


    • Connectors:

    • Facilitates output to a variety of platforms and document systems.


    • Processing Engine:

    • Application which hosts modules and connectors and communicates with clients.


A document workflow usually starts with a client
(if the documents are in hardcopy format).

Metadata Capture and Management

ScannerVision™ Metadata - Picture

The process of automation requires in-depth information
to make decisions in the filing and routing of documents.

Metadata can be captured from a variety of sources.

During the capture process, ScannerVision prompts the user for
important information, meta-data, which is used during the filing process
to ensure that one never loses business critical information.

    ScannerVision™ applies metadata from:

    • Date and time of processing and document name

    • Name of authorized user from desktop/PC or multifunctional client

    • 1D or 2D barcodes on the document

    • Lookups from databases and results of scripts

    • The result of zone or document OCR text, OMR, ICR, and MICR

    • Answers to user-promted questions

    • Forms recognition

    • Etc.

NDS ScannerVision™ Clients - Banner Picture


ScannerVision™ Scan Clients

Scan Clients are clients used to index and/or send
documents to the ScannerVision Processing Engine for processing.

These clients are typically used when manual indexing and
classification of documents are required.

Templates must be assigned to every scan client
which is required to use the said template.


    Scan Clients can include both

    • ScannerVision™ Desktop Clients or

    • Multi Functional Device (MFD) Embedded Scan Clients

    Both offer a similar interface for users to facilitate
    document capture and data tagging.





ScannerVision™ Desktop Client
Scannervision Desktop Client Metadata Capture - Picture

    ScannerVision™ Desktop Client is a Windows application which connects
    to any scanning device and the ScannerVision™ Process Engine and
    guides the operator through the document capture process.

    Documents may be acquired by scanning with an installed TWAIN driver
    (including thousands of office multifunctionals (MFD) and desktop scanners)
    or by importing existing electronic files (e.g. files from a PDF/A or TIFF archive)
    and submit these to the available workflows for processing and filing,
    ensuring that existing digital documents can be captured and processed,
    as if they were paper.

    Users select their image data from the application and
    select which document template to process with.

    Depending on the template, the user will be prompted for important
    document data (meta-data) which is used to dynamically and
    accurately categorize and file the document.

    Depending on the template configuration, users cannot store the data
    until all required information is entered from the document
    - ensuring that the information can be retrieved easily at a later date.

    The ScannerVision Desktop Client is also build to operate in
    terminal and Citrix environments by simply making it available
    to the users as you would do with any other terminal application.
    Each user will have their instance under their user profile.

ScannerVision™ Advanced Modules
NDS ScannerVision™ Advanced Modules - Banner Picture

Datasheet: ScannerVision™ Advanced Modules for Increased Functionality (pdf)

NDS ScannerVision™ Advanced Modules - ABC Banner Picture

    ScannerVision’s ABC module implements an advanced,
    loss-less compression algorithm to achieve superior
    compression ratios versus the most popular current methods.

    ABC technology enables users to achieve file sizes which are
    4 to 5 times smaller than the files sizes generated by standard
    1-bit compression types, such as CCITT Group 4.

    The proprietary compression format is automatically detected and
    decompressed by ScannerVision, so your digital archive can be
    reconverted to another format at any time.

    The ABC module can be utilised when there is a requirement to
    archive large amounts of data as efficiently as possible.
    Storage requirements are lessened by
    the superior compression ratios achieved.

    The module can also be deployed to increase the transmission speed
    of documents to their final destination, useful when files have to travel
    large distances over wide area networks.

    ABC technology is also available from
    the ScannerVision™ Office Desktop Client Boost,
    drastically reducing transfer times of captured data from the client to the server.

NDS ScannerVision™ Advanced Modules - Barcode Annotation Banner Picture

    ScannerVision’s Barcode Annotation module enables users to place
    one of nearly 40 different types of barcode on the documents they scan.

    The Barcode Annotation module is often used to write barcodes onto
    documents for the purposes of tracking and automated identification.

    Multiple barcodes can be written to the same document and
    the contents of any metadata library tag can be used as the value.

    Customer details, product information, departmental codes;
    anything can be encoded onto a scanned document
    ensuring it can be processed automatically.

NDS ScannerVision™ Advanced Modules - Optical Mark Recognition Banner Picture

    ScannerVision’s OMR module makes light work
    of capturing and processing forms-based data.

    Able to read marks inside user defined zones,
    this module can help build automated workflows for directing
    examination papers, voting forms, surveys, and much, much more.

    The OMR module is typically used where the automatic
    analysis and routed of forms is required.
    Documents may be routed to different destinations or
    even other workflows for further processing.

    The module can also be used to validate documents leaving an organisation,
    example to check that contract and letters have been signed,
    or forms have been fully completed.

    From the workflow template, areas (or zones) of a document
    are specified for ScannerVision™ to analyse.
    If a specific zone contains a mark,
    the value in the metadata library will reflect this,
    enabling the user to direct the document through
    a specific workflow or to the correct destination.

NDS ScannerVision™ Advanced Modules - Zone Recognition Banner Picture

    ScannerVision’s ZOCR module enables automatic
    capture of data from specific zones on the document.
    Invoice numbers, customer codes, addresses;
    all can be defined and captured independently and
    used to file the document or route to a special workflow.

    Full-page Optical Character Recognition with a large
    number of documents can be a time-intensive process.
    The Zone OCR module provides the technology to
    analyse and extract data from just specific areas of a document,
    increasing performance and throughput whilst ensuring
    programmatic access to just the information you require.

    From the workflow template, areas (or zones) of a document
    are specified for ScannerVision™ to analyse.
    During the capture process data in the defined zones is
    converted to text and made available via the metadata
    library for distribution, notification and filing purposes.

    Zone OCR technology is also available from
    the ScannerVision™ Office Desktop Client Automate,
    to assist in high-speed document indexing.
