Capture/Import Module Overview

The Capture module performs the core work of physically and logically connecting PC based scan stations to the scanner and/or file systems. The connection is used to capture images and convert them to electronic format. Device profiles are used to define specific setup options for different scanner devices (such as simplex/duplex, double feed detection, etc...) and file system capture methods (such as import, auto-import). Barcodes and Patch codes are read by the Capture module to distinguish between the end of one document and the beginning of another. In addition, barcode values may also be configured to automatically populate index fields. The Capture module may perform image cleanup. Cleanup may include removing black hole punch marks, de-skewing or rotating the image, removing extraneous specks that may appear on the image(called de-speckle within the program), cropping, and more. The Capture module produces a grouping of enhanced TIFF images for use in the next step of the Capture workflow.
