High Speed Scanner Drivers

A fast scanner requires a high speed scanner drivers when paired to a comprehensive document management system. FileDirector offers high speed scanner drivers as an optional module.

What are Scanner Drivers?

Put simply, scanner drivers allow a scanner to connect and communicate with a computer or server. Once the driver is installed to a lead computer, the computer will then be able to recognise the document scanner when connected via USB or wireless internet connection – if you own a wifi scanner.

The document scanner will then be able to scan and send information to your computer, in order for it to be displayed to you. You can then choose a range of destinations for it to be saved.

TWAIN Drivers

The most popular scanner drivers are TWAIN drivers, though not all scanners will accept TWAIN. Some require their own manufacturer-based drivers. Fujitsu ScanSnap scanners are some of the most popular examples of this, as they provide their own ScanSnap drivers with all their sold hardware.

If you own a network scanner, there are a varied amount of server based drivers you can download. For example TWAIN Direct is a mobile-ready version of the standard protocol, eliminating the need for a driver to be installed at operating system (OS) level.

This allows for connection via applications, whether they be desktop, mobile or browser based.
