Berlin based ExactCODE GmbH, designer of exact systems, libraries, drivers and tools for the next generation of computing, today announced added support for native TWAIN drivers on Linux and Windows for its all-in-one scan suite, ExactScan. ExactScan provides over 400 document scanner drivers and various image and PDF processing options on Macs to optimize the scanned image data, highly compressed PDF as well as OCR, barcode recognition and batch processing. As a contributing Board member of the TWAIN Working Group, ExactCODE uses its expertise to support scanner vendor’s native drivers, providing more OS flexibility and choices for users and system integrators.

René Rebe, CEO of ExactCODE GmbH said: “We are proud to bring the expertise from developing our scan suite on the Mac platform to Linux and Windows systems. Expanding to new platforms brings new alternatives to users, and the new Linux and Windows TWAIN support allows users to employ more vendor supported scanners on the free open-source platform.”

“ExactCODE has already made a substantial contribution to the TWAIN standard by providing testing and development services on the Mac. With this announcement, they have further embraced our cross platform strategy by making their commercial Mac TWAIN application available on Linux and Windows,” stated Jon Harju, Chair of the TWAIN Working Group and CTO at Visioneer Inc. “This move will provide additional motivation for scanner manufacturers to develop TWAIN drivers across all platforms, helping simplify development activities and unifying the user experience.”
