Let’s hear it for ClearScan!

20 Aug 2008 | | No Comment

Duff Johnson, head honcho at Document Solutions Inc., has been working with scanning to PDF intelligently for almost as long as computers had keyboards (in place of punched cards). I’ve had endless discussions with him over the years about the multi-resolution technique he developed to perform intelligent scanning, OCR’ing and downsampling — based on analysis of the contents of the page — to produce the smallest file possible, with the maximum reusability.

Well, finally, it appears that with the release of Acrobat 9 he’ll stand a chance of being run out of business as this is included at-no-cost titled as “ClearScan”.

Duff believes that ClearScan is one of the best new features of Acrobat 9, and that it has the …

“highest-quality image-to-document conversion available today.”

So why would Duff be so thrilled about this — well, it’s because Document Solutions, Inc., played a significant role in developing ClearScan for inclusion in Acrobat 9. Don’t take my word for it, head on over to Duff’s blog piece at AcrobatUser.coms. While you’re at it, you should probably sign up to Duff’s blog as he’s got plenty to say on technologies relating to scanning, OCR’ing and archival of PDF documents [especially Section 508] — top reading if that’s an area that you work in regularly.
