Hi!

Do you have any plans on supporting multi image output from Fujitsu (ex. 5950) scanners? Or is it possible to turn on feature like this with parameters?

Thank you!

Hi Fredrick,

I'm not sure but I think that "multi image output from Fujitsu scanners" is the same feature as "dual stream feature of Kodak scanners". Please read this article:
http://www.vintasoft.com/docs/vstwain-d ... ature.html

and let me know if you will have any question or problem.

Best regards, Alexander

Hi!

It works fine with Kodak scanners. I think it's a properitary Kodak feature, but other manufacturers call it different names.

With the Fujitsu scanner I get an error when setting the .SelectedCamera property that the camera name was not found (don't remember the exact error msg).

But we found that the best solution was to use the Fujitsu scanners auto-detect color functionality. The only downside is that we have to show the scanner user dialog every time and select a custom profile manually. It would be nice to be able to set these settings on the device in code.


Best reg.

Hi Fredrik,

Ok, we will try to provide you good solution but we need additional information:
  • Please send me a list of capabilities supported by TWAIN driver
    • Run our TWAIN Advanced Demo
    • Select the scanner
    • Press the "Get Source info" button, dialog with device's capabilities will appear
    • Press the "Copy to clipboard" button
    • Copy text from clipboard to a text file and send it to me
  • Please send me screenshots which show how you manually set the custom profile in UI of TWAIN driver
Best regards, Alexander

Hi Fredrick,

Multi image output from Fujitsu scanners can be disabled/enabled using the capability with ID=33010.

Fujitsu Fi-6130 scanners supports the following values for this capability:
  • 0 - multi image output is disabled
  • 1 - multi image output is enabled, first image is color or gray, second image is black-white
  • 2 - multi image output is enabled, first image is black-white, second image is color or gray
  • 3 - multi image output is enabled, ???
  • 4 - multi image output is enabled, automatic color detection
Best regards, Alexander
