PaperStream IP for outstanding image clarity and accuracy

PaperStream IP for outstanding image clarity and accuracy

PaperStream IP is a scanner driver for Fujitsu fi Series and SP Series image scanners. It enhances standard TWAIN and ISIS applications by integrating cutting edge image processing technologies and is used together with PaperStream Capture software, your applications and the software development kit Scanner Control SDK.

PaperStream IP enhances your document scanning through:

  • The automatic production of clear and high quality image data
  • Advanced functions that support efficient scanning
  • An intuitive UI (user interface) for simple and convenient operation

Eliminating the need for individual software settings, PaperStream IP automatically produces clear image data that is optimised for post-processing routines such as OCR. By intelligently adjusting to a range of different types of document and accurately distinguishing characters from background noise, it increases image accuracy, improves efficiency, enhances productivity and cuts costs.

How PaperStream IP puts your productivity in the fast lane

Image optimisation and driver application in one
With no need to align an image optimisation application with a separate driver application (we have developed both within one application), there is no risk of deployment conflicts, and no need to seek specialist expertise and support at deployment stage, or when firmware is updated.

Easy operation
Compatible with all standard ISIS and TWAIN applications, PaperStream IP’s intuitive user interface makes operation quick and easy – just point and click to select various profiles, and single click to start scanning.

Highest accuracy for the best quality images
A range of automatic image quality control functions clean up even the toughest documents – from removing decorated backgrounds and stains/noise, to increasing the weight of faint characters and fixing the image appearance of torn documents.

Increased efficiency and productivity
Functioning across multiple applications and documents, with no requirement for individual scanner setting changes, PaperStream IP enables faster, more accurate outputs – for example, batches containing multiple documents – some colour and some monochrome – can be scanned in one batch in the correct colour. In addition, application-based sorting and indexing is supported by the PaperStream IP integrated patch code and barcode modules.

Cost savings
Because PaperStream IP is compatible with all standard ISIS and TWAIN applications, and integrates the driver with cutting-edge image enhancement and processing technologies, there is no need to purchase additional, add-on functionality from other parties.

Consistently reliable outputs
Integrating the driver with the image enhancement functionality minimises conflicts and potential failure points – whatever the input, you’re guaranteed a quality output.

Fast and easy document conversion into high-quality images

PaperStream IP delivers powerful digital document enhancement, ensuring documents can be quickly converted into exceptionally high-quality images. With predefined profiles, it is easy to clean up images – without user adjustments – for immediate capture. Eliminating the need for rescanning, PaperStream IP saves time and resources.

Supports ISIS and TWAIN applications
You can get more out of your existing scanning applications – just select PaperStream IP and your fi Series or SP Series scanner as the source to begin scanning.

Powerful image clean-up
Numerous image quality control functions automatically clean up the most difficult documents, with no profile adjustments required:

  • Character thickness adjustment and character augmentation functions enhance characters
  • Noise removal function deletes document stains and noise in the background
  • Background pattern removal function increases character visibility
  • Automatic tone adjustment function produces optimum image data

Assisted scanning
Visually choose the best image for image replacement or profile setting, without having to learn and manipulate advanced driver settings. 

Blank page deletion
Scan with duplex to automatically delete blank pages without having to select batch-dependent profiles. 

Auto colour detection
Eliminate the need to sort documents or worry about optimised file size – with adjustable sensitivity, each page is automatically captured in the correct colour depth. 

You no longer have to spend time physically rotating paper. 

Colour clean-up and correction
Colour documents are automatically cleaned for improved reproduction and reduced file sizes. 

Photograph conversion to high-quality image data
Documents with photos can be quickly converted to image data of exceptional quality for archiving purposes. 

Built-in intelligent multi-feed controls
Operators can automatically bypass sticky notes, taped receipts and barcode labels. 

Scanner central admin
PaperStream IP profiles and updates can be deployed to your entire scanner fleet – see more at Scanner Central Admin

Auto-cropping and de-skew
Mixed paper sizes are automatically straightened and captured at the correct size. 

Punch hole removal and edge repair
Hole-punches are filled in – in both colour and black and white – and rough document edges are corrected with small tears removed. 

Multi-stream support
You can have outputs with up to three different colour depths at once, which can be routed into different uses depending on the functional capability of the capture application used (for example, PaperStream Capture Pro). 

True 64-bit driver option
Available for 64-bit software applications to achieve enhanced speed and image rendering. 

Latest barcode and patch code support for batch separation
Integrated barcode, patch code and optional matrix code recognition can be seamlessly used with various applications. 

Digital endorsement
Images can be digitally stamped with a string, date and/or time, including Julian calendar dates.

Accelerated image enhancement
Direct interface with the 7th generation fi Series models’ built-in GI processor. 

Easy integration
To support ISVs (Independent Software Vendors), all PaperStream IP functionality can be integrated using the SDK (available upon request)
