Ciansoft WebTwainX is an ActiveX (OCX) control designed specifically for use in a web browser application for scanning or capturing images from a TWAIN compliant device and then uploading the images to a web server. It is supplied as a complete package including the necessary server components for receiving and saving the uploaded files. A comprehensive user interface provides full control over the image acquisition process. This can be done either by calling the built-in interface of the device driver or by setting the color depth resolution image size and other parameters in the WebTwainX interface and bypassing the device driver interface. After capturing one or more images these can be sorted and simple editing can be carried out including rotation cropping deskewing and despeckling. The images can be uploaded to the server using a choice from several popular file formats including TIF PDF and JPG. Multi-page TIF or PDF files can be created. A fully functional trial version is available in which the only limitation is that a line of text is added to each image showing that trial software has been used. The user interface can be extensively customised using a clientside script to modify both the appearance and functionality. Compatible with version 2.2 of the TWAIN specification.
