Image-Processing Software Option V2.5

Image-processing software option is a software option for FUJITSU Image scanner fi-Series, and can perform advanced binarizing image processing by using it combining "FUJITSU TWAIN32 Scanner driver".

Features

  • Image-Processing Software Option V2.5 (S-IPC V2.5) simultaneously creates color and monochrome images. (TWAIN only)
  • This software option permits the creation of either color or monochrome images from one side of a document while creating the opposite for the other side from a single scan (TWAIN only)
  • S-IPC V2.5 supports the creation of high quality images equaling those generated by image processing boards. It is also capable of processing images generated by lower end scanners.
  • It can also be used along the lines of a driver
  • S-IPC V2.5 supports various monochrome processing applications, enabling it to process various document types. Furthermore, it permits the creation of templates containing settings that are suitable for processing images generated from various document types, thus greatly smoothing the scanning process.
  • An image-processing preview function permits users to view processed images, enabling them to adjust scanned images until they are fully satisfied with the results.
  • This page offers a trial version of our "Image Processing Software V2.5", which we hope you will feel free to download and try out yourself.

Supported functions

Function Supports Explanation (Unique features)
Image processing function Text / pictures This function offers users six monochrome image-processing options for users to choose from.
Generate B&W and Color images simultaneously Text / pictures This function permits the creation of color and monochrome images for both front-side and reverse-side images created from one scan.
Fixed threshold Text Fixed thresholding is a monochrome image processing function that renders all shades of grey in an image to either black or white, based upon a threshold value. It changes faded characters into black ones, making it ideal for optical character reading (OCR) purposes.
OCR DTC Text OCR DTC is a monochrome image processing function that renders all shade of grey in an image to either black or white, based upon a threshold value. This ability to clarify faded characters improves optical character reading (OCR) accuracy, making ideal for processing text.
Form DTC Text This monochrome image processing function separates text from background color, improving optical character reading (OCR) by removing background noise.
Dither Pictures This function is ideal for processing images such as photographs that contain numerous shades. It depicts different shades of grey by combining various patterns of black and white pixels (dither patterns).
Minimize average error Pictures / text This monochrome image processing function is ideal for processing digitized images containing both pictures and text. It is ideal for cases when emphasis has been placed on image quality.
Random dither Pictures / text This monochrome image processing function is ideal for processing digitized images containing both pictures and text. It is perfect for cases when emphasis has been placed on ensuring high quality text data.
Filter Text / pictures A filter is used to process images prior to their being processed by one of the previously listed image processing functions. Use of a filter improves monochrome quality.
Noise removal (3x3 Average, 3x5 Average) Note(1) This function removes unwanted noise from images.
Contour enhancement (3x3 enhancement) Note(1) This function enhances the outlines of individual characters or objects appearing in an image.
Outline detection threshold Note(2) This function differentiates between text and pictures through level settings.
Ball point pen filter Note(3) Since lines drawn by ballpoint pens are not solid (they actually consist of two parallel lines), this function fills in the area that is left between these lines in order to improve OCR accuracy.
Noise removal Note(3) This function removes unwanted noise that is created from the monochrome image generation process.
Smoothing Note(3) This process removes rough edges from characters or objects appearing in an image.
Note 1:
This function can be used with all settings except for "Other than OCR DTC".
Note 2:
This function supports "dither", "minimized average error method" and "random dither".
Note 3:
This function can be set using "OCR DTC"

Image Processing Example

Generate B&W and Color Images Simultaneously

S-IPC V2.5 generated images: S-IPC V2.5 supports the simultaneous creation of color and monochrome images, thus creating four images when a two sided image is scanned in duplex.

Images created by previous versions of Image Processing Software: Scanning a double sided in duplex with earlier versions of Fujitsu's Image Processing Software either created two color images or two monochrome images.
