VRS - What is it ?
|VRS Stands for Virtual ReScan. This is a software that
allows one to scan a document and
adjust the image quality "on the fly" by using a slide bar to
render the image exactly what one would like to save, without
having to change the settings then rescan the document with the
|VRS has many more features, but that is
the principle of VRS. The other features are
designed to enhance the scanning experience by the user.
Features such as auto cropping, blank page detaction, auto color
detection, bar code scanning and
others make scanning in batches that much easier.
|Why Kofax VRS ? In the dark ages (1993-2003) most
scanners came with basic software that only generated an crude
image. Users had to have another software to process and clean
up the images and make it legible for others to read. In those
days, you scanned at one station, and image processed at another
station, before you stored the image. Kofax came along and
created software that interacted directly with the scanner and
created the images "on the fly". Today the software has many
features needed by people who scan a lot of documents every day.
|Most of today's scanning and image cleanup can be handled by
the software provided by the scanner manufacturers however, if
you have images that are constantly in poor condition or a great
deal of images to process then VRS Elite is designed to meet those
|Kofax VRS comes in 3 versions, with each higher version
inheriting the features of the lower version.
