How 'Remote Scan' Works in Dynamic Web TWAIN 16.2
Before we introduce this new feature, let’s take a look at how Dynamic Web TWAIN HTML5 Edition works in previous versions.

Things are different with the new remote scan feature in the latest release. Below is a basic diagram.
- Scanner host machine: The Dynamsoft service can be installed on Windows, Linux, and macOS.
A basic workflow:
- The website server sends a scan request to the Web TWAIN service;
- The server-side service interacts with the scanner and retrieves the images;
- The service sends the (compressed) data to the client machine;
This kind of setup is especially useful for scenarios where a centralized document scanning server is available.
