Visioneer Announces New DriverPlus Technology | Visioneer

Visioneer DriverPLUS provides advanced features, greater reliability with a superior experience for both users and system integrators.

Pleasanton, California – November 7, 2011 – Visioneer, Inc., a leader in intelligent document imaging solutions, today announced Visioneer DriverPLUS, a new generation of driver technology for Visioneer and Xerox DocuMate scanners. Based on TWAIN 2.1 specifications, Visioneer DriverPLUS combines the features of advanced 32- and 64-bit native Windows®-based TWAIN and WIA drivers PLUS new Visioneer Acuity optimization software and a sophisticated user interface. Visioneer Acuity was also announced today in a separate release.

“We understand the importance of driver technology for the consumer and system integrator alike and have responded here. Visioneer DriverPLUS will provide users with the reliability and features they are expecting in their scanner driver backed by a powerful new GUI,” said Jon Harju, Visioneer CTO and architect of DriverPLUS. “The PLUS means these new drivers are powerful, completely programmatic for the system integrator and optimized for Acuity. We feel we have raised the bar in scanner drivers and we are very excited to introduce our customers to this new experience in scanning technology.”

Development of Visioneer DriverPLUS began months ago when the TWAIN Working Group (TWG) announced their certification program for scanner drivers. Visioneer committed to the program and made available TWAIN 2.1 Certified drivers for 11 Visioneer scanner models and 22 Xerox DocuMate scanner models on the day of the announcement. Visioneer immediately began looking to implement additional improvements to raise the bar on TWAIN driver performance through the development of DriverPLUS.
