What's Image Capture Plus

Simplifies settings for scanning conditions

Image Capture Plus is an application that transfers image data scanned by a Panasonic high-speed document scanner to a PC in the form of an image file. This software lets you edit scanned pages (switch pages, delete pages, etc.) intuitively using thumbnail images. It also allows you to make various settings to facilitate complex scanning processes and serves as a powerful tool for efficiently processing routine business work, such as filing.

Features

Operating Procedures That Facilitate Confirmation and Correction of Scanning Result

The operating procedures for scan, confirmation/correction and output improve the productivity for large-volume scanning.

Scan

Efficient Scanning by Fully Utilizing the Functions of a Panasonic High-Speed Document Scanner

The software is optimized for Panasonic high-speed document scanners and takes full advantage of the many convenient functions offered by the Panasonic high-speed document scanner to achieve efficient scanning.

Confirmation/Correction

Using Thumbnails for Intuitive Confirmation and Editing of Pages

Each page of a document scanned by the scanner is displayed as a thumbnail in a list. By dragging and dropping thumbnails, pages can be easily moved and shuffled.

Confirming What the Scanned Image Will Look Like with the PreScan Function

In the preview window, you can confirm what the scanned image will look like under the current scan settings. You can make fine adjustments to brightness, contrast and other parameters while looking at the final result, and then save the desired scan settings.

Output

Flexible File Output Function

• Images can be saved in various data formats, such as PDF, JPEG, TIFF and Bitmap. Scanned data can be moved and saved in a selected folder all at once. Plus, text-searchable PDF and searchable PDF/A data can be generated.*1

Select PDF(Searchable). / Text-searchable data is generated.

• Documents can be transferred directly to an E-mail application after being checked and edited, and sent by E-mail as an image file attachment.*2

*1 Image Capture Plus, which is included with the KV-S1025C-S, does not support searchable PDF or searchable PDF/A. Searchable PDF and searchable PDF/A can be created for English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese. Searchable PDF and searchable PDF/A for Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese can be created when using Operating Systems of the respective languages.
*2 This is not possible with some E-mail applications.

The Job Scan Function Supports Repetitive Work Tasks

The unit can be set in advance to scan data and automatically save the resulting files into specified folders. Image processing functions, such as Automatic Image Orientation, Automatic De-Skew, and Multi Stream, can also be set.

The OCR Zone Function Supports the Scanning of Standard Forms Such as Invoices

When you use the OCR Zone function, text will be recognized while scanning and acquired as an OCR result that is used in the file name and Output Log.*

* The Output Log is available only in Job Scan mode.

Automatic Image Orientation

No more worries about the document's direction.

Even when documents are set in different directions, this function detects the direction of the scanned text in documents and automatically rotates it into the correct direction.*

* The orientation of documents with many characters using text decorations may not be correct.

With this function / Without this function

Automatic Binary/Color Distinction

No more need to pre-sort documents.

This function automatically detects when a set of documents contains some color sheets and some monochrome (B/W) sheets. You can feed these together without sorting, and the machine will automatically compress the data efficiently according to whether a sheet is color or monochrome (B/W), so the electronic file size is minimized. This is a feature typically found only on high-end scanners.

Double Exposure

Two-in-one convenience.

Double Exposure automatically scans then saves two-sided documents into a single-page file. It is highly effective for documents printed on both sides, such as checks, stock certificates, post cards, and business cards.

Blank Page Removal

You can convert only the desired pages into electronic form.

When scanning a set of documents that contains both single-sided and double-sided sheets, this function automatically skips over the blank sides. It saves you time and trouble by eliminating the need to sort the sheets beforehand or remove the blank data after scanning. It also helps reduce wasted memory space in your computer.

Automatic Crop

No more scan mistakes or time-consuming trimming.

Different sized documents can be scanned each according to its own size. This raises work efficiency by preventing size setting mistakes and eliminating the need to later crop scans to the desired size.

Automatic Deskew

No need to make manual adjustments.

When scanning documents of different sizes, any that are accidentally scanned at an angle are automatically corrected by de-skewing. This also boosts work efficiency by eliminating the need to worry about skewed pages while scanning.

* For KV-S5076H and KV-S5046H

MultiStream

Single pass for dual output.

The MultiStream function enables a single scan to be saved as two separate formats simultaneously. For example the document will be saved in monochrome (B/W) for OCR and archival purposes, and saved as a full color image for short term on-screen retrieval.

Dynamic Threshold

Excellent readability and accuracy.

With the Dynamic Threshold function, the background density and color are automatically detected section by section, and the scan setting (brightness control) is automatically adjusted to ensure sharp scanning of both text and images.

Multi Color Dropout

Convenient for OCR processing.

Any of up to three specific color ranges on the document can be selected as a dropout color. This function, when used in form processing applications, can greatly improve OCR performance and accuracy, resulting in increased productivity and potential cost savings.

Hole Removal

Punch holes from the document are removed from the image.

The Hole Removal function removes the punch hole marks from the scanned image. Round or square black shapes around the edges are replaced with the color closest to the document. You don't have to cover them up with tape beforehand or use image editing after scanning.

Smooth Background

No more fuzzy backgrounds.

The Smooth Background function analyzes images while scanning for background color content, and outputs the images with the background color solidified. This increases viewing clarity and reduces JPEG output file size.

2-Page Separation

Easily get the data you need from each page

Use the flatbed or ADF to scan 2-page spreads from books, magazines, etc., and automatically divide the single image into two single sheets*. Dividing scanned documents saves time and trouble because it makes complex editing operations unnecessary.

* Divided lengthwise or crosswise. The length of the scanned document is divided in half. The division is not based on the content of the document.

Multi-Crop

Save time by reducing the number of scans

Place various sized documents on the flatbed and scan them all at once, then crop whatever parts you need. This is convenient for scanning multiple business cards and thick documents.

Auto Preview: For KV-S5076H, KV-S5046H, KV-S1065C and KV-S1046C

No More Need for Troublesome Scan Settings

Auto Preview is a scan setting user interface that does not require technical knowledge from the user. It produces nine candidate types, and shows them in a list format. The user can select the most suitable image with a single click, and make further adjustments if desired. This eliminates the time and trouble of trial-and-error operation, and quickly and easily produces electronic documents that are clearly legible and uniform.

Notification Function: For KV-S5076H, KV-S5046H, KV-S1065C and KV-S1046C

Result Confirmation of Automatic Judgment

Detection of troublesome problem images uses four notification functions to save work. Icons for all four are displayed on-screen for speedy confirmation and additional setting.
