OpenText Captiva ISIS Driver (Image and Scanner Interface Specification) is the industry standard enterprise-level scanner driver interface that unites scanners with software applications. More than 300 different scanners currently communicate to applications through the ISIS driver interface. ISIS allows scanners to run at their rated speeds or higher and is the only imaging solution that allows users to take full advantage of the power inherent in their scanners and other imaging machines.

The ISIS architecture is based on modules—software components that perform specific imaging functions (e.g., image acquisition, file conversion, data extraction and file read/write commands). This architecture allows new modules to be added without making system-wide changes: simply add what you need where it’s needed.

ISIS for Developers: By using ISIS toolkits, Developers realize a variety of benefits including:

Compatibility — ISIS drivers are available for more than 300 scanner models and support all hardware interfaces, including USB, SCSI, FireWire and more. ISIS has been the basis for the AIIM MS61 standard since 1996. All scanner manufacturers are guaranteed compatibility with hundreds of commercial ISIS applications. Software developers are guaranteed compatibility with hundreds of document scanners from 50 different manufacturers.

Reduced Development Time — Development time can be significantly reduced with ISIS toolkits, which include scanner drivers, read/write modules, data transport/format conversion modules and an on-screen document viewer. With ISIS, the basic functions of imaging are already clearly defined, implemented, and thoroughly tested, making ISIS driver applications faster and easier to execute.

Reduced Support Costs — The code upon which ISIS is based has been used and refined for more than ten years. ISIS-enabled toolkits and scanners reduce risk for developers and scanner manufacturers, as they have been subjected to a rigorous, time-proven testing procedure.
