Twain Importer Product Description

TwainImporer screenshot Virtual TWAIN driver for importing PDF, TIFF and even more.

Twain Importer is a virtual Twain driver that imports images into any Twain-compatible scan application. It is helpful for unifying operations with images from multifunctional devices (MFP), Network Scanners, E-mails, or if your Twain-based capture application does not support some file format (for example PDF documents). It can even be used to test Twain-based application (especially using Microsoft or VmWare virtual technologies). TwainImporter can be very helpful in sales or support, because you don’t need to use expensive hardware scanners. Twain Importer is available as a 32-bit and 64-bit driver. It supports the following image formats and compressions: PDF (including text PDF, image PDF and image plus text PDF documents), TIFF (including multipage), JPEG, JPEG 2000, PNG, GIF, Bitmap, ICO, TGA, PCX, and WMF. Twain Importer is useful for many common office tasks:

  • - Import JPEG, TIFF and other image files scanned with MFP (MFD) into local or shared folder
  • - Import PDF files via TWAIN interface into document imaging systems
  • - Demo your capture product to customers on a notebook without real hardware
  • - Test scan application
  • - Import from a Microsoft Sharepoint Shared folder
  • - Import from an attached digital camera or flash drive
  • - Quickly insert a number of images into Microsoft Word
  • - Convert color documents to black-and-white
  • - Rotate, alter, and improve an image’s quality
  • - Import files with Kofax VRS
  • - and more!

Twain Importer is simple to use: specify a folder with images, and Twain Importer will transfer them into your favorite Twain application using the usual profiles and processes.

Following operation systems are supported:

  • - Windows XP 32/64 bits
  • - Windows 7 32/64 bits
  • - Windows 2008 Server 32/64 bits
  • - Windows 2008 Server R2 32/64 bits
  • - Windows 8 32/64 bits
  • - Windows 2012 Server 32/64 bits

One of the most popular use cases - using TwainImporter with all-in-one devices (multi functional devices). Scan to shared folder and then import files with TwainImporter. You can even use it on RemoteDesktop or VMWare although if you need to capture documents from scanner on Remote Server you should take a look at RemoteDesktop Twain.
By request, we have also created a more advanced version of Twain Importer for developers. Do you need to test a scanning application on a virtual PC? Do you want to do this quickly? Twain Importer, Developer Edition is the best solution. You can create your set of etalon images and do extensive tests. The loop feature makes volume tests as easy as 1-2-3!

Also Twain Importer can help to improve images quality for further OCR or barcode recognition and decrease a size of images. Now it can convert color documents to binary, detect and remove paper color from documents and rotate images during transferring. But if Twain Importer Image Enhancement is not enough then you can use it with Kofax VRS and get the best possible production quality.
