Dynamsoft Adds Support for Direct Control of WIA Drivers to Scan Faster and Easier for Windows Users

Dynamic Web TWAIN v18.2 Made Improvements to the Image Editor for Better Speed and Image Quality.

VANCOUVER – MAY 15th, 2023

Dynamsoft™ introduced a new version of its document capture software development kit - Dynamic Web TWAIN SDK - which allows end users to access scanners of various protocols such as TWAIN, SANE, ICA, or eSCL on the Intranet through any modern browser on any device. With the new release of Dynamic Web TWAIN v18.2, WIA support has been added. WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) is a protocol developed by Microsoft that is built into the Windows operating system. It provides a simple interface for image acquisition from scanners and cameras, making it easy to use for quick and basic scanning needs.

Document management is an essential part of many businesses and organizations. To improve efficiency and enable scanning access to more people, we introduced remote scan in v18.0. The remote scan allows an end user on any device and browser to access TWAIN, ICA, SANE, or WIA scanners without installing any Dynamsoft or scanner software on the end client. In v18.2 we further optimized and streamlined the remote scanning process to only support the essential features such as scan, edit, and upload. This reduces the application load speed, implementation difficulty, and resource sizes to allow a more portable and easily integrated scanning component. The optimization also allows a viewer-less implementation of Dynamic Web TWAIN. It reduces the load by removing the necessity of loading the image viewer resources into memory when the viewer is not being used.

Another highlight of v18.2 is the re-architected image editor for better speed and image quality. For example, the new image editing mode eliminates the need to upload the image to the server side first for processing and send it back to the local viewer. With the new mode, the data is processed in the canvas and then synced to the server side. This improves the image processing speed and enables feature expansion in the future such as undo and redo.

Getting started with a deployment can be done in a handful of steps. Developers can download and install Dynamic Web TWAIN version 18.2 from the Dynamsoft website, including a trial version. A 30-day trial license comes with the installer.
