WingScan® Features

Web Based Scanning (in browser)

WingScan is a JavaScript API and Windows (v7+) Service for communicating directly with a TWAIN device through a web application.

  • Browser-based Scanning - WingScan includes fully customizable browser controls that allow end users to submit documents directly from their scanners
  • Viewing -- WingScan includes an HTML5/JavaScript document viewer for scanned documents.  For a more robust viewing experience, see our DotImage SDK.
  • Easy installation -- WingScan includes a simple process for installing the Windows Service on the client machine.
  • Browser Support - WingScan supports IE 8+, Firefox, and Chrome

With our WingScan product you can scan directly from a web browser - this improves security and enables end users to scan directly to a repository without the need to save locally first. It is accomplished by using a lightweight http server on the scanning computer that the browser can communicate with and a handler on the serverside.  WingScan is a stand alone product with a streamlined viewer - however when you combine WingScan with our DotImage SDK you have superior web based scanning combined with powerful viewing controls to make capturing and processing documents effortless.

What users experience

Users will need to install a windows msi file so your application can talk to their TWAIN-enabled scanner. Why a http server? There needs to be some kind of clientside protocol that exists and browsers have decided to move away from NPAPI (More information on this move http://content.atalasoft.com/h/i/46510612-npapi-has-left-the-building-what-wingscan-users-should-know
