For several years, Kofax VirtualReScan (VRS) had been a free OEM download offered by Kofax through Fujitsu. The VRS software does barcode and patchcode detection, and also provides for significant image clean-up processing. To integrate Kofax VRS with ImageNow, an ImageNow CaptureNow for Adrenaline license is required.
Fujitsu has recently introduced PaperStream IP to work with a variety of Fujitsu scanners. With the introduction of Fujitsu PaperStream IP, there are other Image Processing software options available to work with different Fujitsu scanners. For the latest Fujitsu scanners, Kofax VRS OEM is no longer provided by Fujitsu.
If a new Fujitsu scanner is purchased to replace an environment which was using VRS with the CaptureNow for Adrenaline license, and a new VRS license is not going to be purchased, there are two additional options available.
Note: If desired, Kofax VRS can still be utilized by updating the component installation for the scanner. Click here for a list of available component installers (this link is to Perceptive's KnowledgeBase; you must have an account in that system to view it).
- The CaptureNow for Adrenaline license can be replaced by the appropriate ISIS license. All three levels of the ISIS license provide barcode/patchcode detection and a varying level of image processing. For license changes, discuss with the CSA or Account Executive.
- Transition from using Kofax VRS to Fujitsu PaperStream IP by doing the following:
- Request a new CaptureNow TWAIN license, or request to replace an existing license with CaptureNow TWAIN. For license changes, discuss with the CSA or Account Executive.
- Install the TWAIN drivers for the scanner and the TWAIN version of PaperStream IP.
NOTE: 32-bit PaperStream drivers will need to be used as ImageNow is a 32-bit application.
ImageNow 6.5, 6.6, 6.7, and 6.8 integrate with PaperStream IP via TWAIN which requires a CaptureNow TWAIN license.
NOTE: ImageNow 6.8 is only available for new implementations and is not available for updates.
Kofax VRS can still be used with the new models of Fujitsu scanners; however, a separate license will need to be purchased. The license will need to be maintained by Kofax. Contacting the CSA or Account Executive to coordinate this purchase is recommended.
Warning: VRS license information is not stored in ImageNow. For additional information on VRS license backup procedures and recovery information, click here.
