Increase speed for high speed scanners

Post by alepee » Fri Apr 01, 2016 8:06 pm

Hello,

We are scanning with high speed scanners (Scanoptics SO 300 series, kodak 700 series, etc) and scanning in Black and white, 300 dpi, simplex, after about 50 pages, the scanner slows down ... We have tried with botht the normal acquisition and the async acquisition samples. The problem does not happen with any other scanning software.

Te problem seems to come from the time it takes to transfer the image from the scanner to GDPicture. Is there any way to speed it up? Any way to change the transfer mode?

We are using both autofeed and autoscan with GDPicture V12

Hi,

The delay is not caused by GdPicture but by the application architecture and transfer mode. Note that the async twain acquisition scanning as any other demo we provide is not designed for high volume scanning process. They are just proof of concept to connect a TWAIN compliant device and acquire images from them.

Here some suggestion to maximize transfer speed:

- use file transfer mode.
- enable auto scan.
- don't filter your image in the scanning thread.
- If you don't use the file transfer mode (meaning that you will probably have to save the acquired page to a file), save your image in another thread.
- Check the TWAIN device configuration: filters and barcode recognition usually dramatically slow down image transfer.
- Ultimately, if you can use a 64- bit driver of your device favor application 64-bit mode.

Kind regards,

Loïc
