Advanced Tags

The component supports Advanced Tags, which offers developers great flexibility in utilizing scanner specific features.

    • Duplex - Scans both front and back simultaneously.
    • MultiStreaming - Scans two images from the same side.
    • Combine both by using duplex with multi-streaming and capture four images with two on the front and two from the back.
  • Scanning modes could include full-color, black-and-white, grayscale, binary or RGB color dropout.
