All these abilities help the book to look richer. Supporting HTML format as texture is a new technology no one of other plugins support it. HTML allow easily create interactive books, handle user events, manage plugin behaviour. Using HTML textures is next important step in development web animation. User behaviour prediction system The plugin is not just pretty but it is smart. It has user behaviour prediction system. In the background it loads predicted pages and renders them.
When the user go to next page it is ready to be shown. First of all it loads visible for user pages then predicted ones. It is possible to customize amount of pages to predict and quantity of used by user pages for predicting his behaviour.
User friendly 3D FlipBook is designed to be maximum user friendly. It has familiar to user page flipping control. Flexible corners help user to understand that he can turn the page by means drag and drop technology. Physics engine computes page transforms in similar to real world way. Modeling book is close to natural book — it has the same volume and shape. It is possible to use hard flat covers to create hard bending and use flexible pages, make whole book flexible or flat.
The plugin has specially designed animation of page loading process. It is created automatically for different page colors. It looks nice for all colors. It is comfortable to watch magazines in this mode, they look like alive. Sometimes it is useful to change lightning.
User can change lightning to do it appropriate for him. It is important option for reading long texts. High performance The plugin performance does not depend on number of pages because it does not manage single pages.
So if the book is closed then there are 2 or 3 blocks. The first is left cover, the second is right cover and third is internal pages. If the book is opened there can be two blocks for left and right internal pages. There can be more blocks just when the flipping animation is performing. The plugin has no problem with more than 50 simultaneously flipping blocks. When the turn is finished the turned block merges with neighbour block.
It allows to render PDFs very fast and in high quality. Responsive 3D FlipBook is designed to occupy whole container where you place it. So if the container size changes the plagin recompute its dimensions.
So keep the container responsive and plugin will be responsive too. This proved useful to publishers, print shops, etc. This functionality largely fell out of use as the cost of flatbed scanners reduced enough to make sharing unnecessary. From all-in-one multi-purpose devices became available which were suitable for both small offices and consumers, with printing, scanning, copying, and fax capability in a single apparatus which can be made available to all members of a workgroup.
Battery-powered portable scanners store scans on internal memory; they can later be transferred to a computer either by direct connection, typically USB, or in some cases a memory card may be removed from the scanner and plugged into the computer. There are many different scanners, and many of those scanners use different protocols.
In order to simplify applications programming, some Applications programming interfaces "API" were developed. The API presents a uniform interface to the scanner. This means that the application does not need to know the specific details of the scanner in order to access it directly. In practice, there are often problems with an application communicating with a scanner.
Either the application or the scanner manufacturer or both may have faults in their implementation of the API. Typically, the API is implemented as a dynamically linked library.
The manufacturer's part of the API is commonly called a device driver , but that designation is not strictly accurate: the API does not run in kernel mode and does not directly access the device. Rather the scanner API library translates application requests into hardware requests. This allows batch scans and transparent network access without any special support from the device driver.
TWAIN is used by most scanners. Originally used for low-end and home-use equipment, it is now widely used for large-volume scanning. Bundled applications[ edit ] Although no software beyond a scanning utility is a feature of any scanner, many scanners come bundled with software. Typically, in addition to the scanning utility, some type of image-editing application such as Adobe Photoshop , and optical character recognition OCR software are supplied. OCR software converts graphical images of text into standard text that can be edited using common word-processing and text-editing software; accuracy is rarely perfect.
Output data[ edit ] Some scanners, especially those designed for scanning printed documents, only work in black-and-white but most modern scanners work in color. For the latter, the scanned result is a non-compressed RGB image, which can be transferred to a computer's memory.
The color output of different scanners is not the same due to the spectral response of their sensing elements, the nature of their light source and the correction applied by the scanning software.
While most image sensors have a linear response, the output values are usually gamma compressed. Some scanners compress and clean up the image using embedded firmware. Once on the computer, the image can be processed with a raster graphics program such as Adobe Photoshop or the GIMP and saved on a storage device such as a hard disk. Images are usually stored on a hard disk. Optical character recognition OCR software allows a scanned image of text to be converted into editable text with reasonable accuracy, so long as the text is cleanly printed and in a typeface and size that can be read by the software.
OCR capability may be integrated into the scanning software, or the scanned image file can be processed with a separate OCR program. Document processing[ edit ] Document scanner Document imaging requirements differ from those of image scanning. These requirements include scanning speed, automated paper feed, and the ability to automatically scan both the front and the back of a document.
On the other hand, image scanning typically requires the ability to handle fragile and or three dimensional objects as well as scan at a much higher resolution. Document scanners have document feeders , usually larger than those sometimes found on copiers or all-purpose scanners. Scans are made at high speed, from 20 up to  or  pages per minute, often in grayscale, although many scanners support color. Many scanners can scan both sides of double-sided originals duplex operation. Sophisticated document scanners have firmware or software that cleans up scans of text as they are produced, eliminating accidental marks and sharpening type; this would be unacceptable for photographic work, where marks cannot reliably be distinguished from desired fine detail.
Files created are compressed as they are made. The resolution used is usually from to dpi , although the hardware may be capable of  or higher resolution; this produces images of text good enough to read and for optical character recognition OCR , without the higher demands on storage space required by higher-resolution images.
Document scans are often processed using OCR technology to create editable and searchable files. Lossy JPEG compression, which is very efficient for pictures, is undesirable for text documents, as slanted straight edges take on a jagged appearance, and solid black or other color text on a light background compresses well with lossless compression formats.
While paper feeding and scanning can be done automatically and quickly, preparation and indexing are necessary and require much work by humans. Preparation involves manually inspecting the papers to be scanned and making sure that they are in order, unfolded, without staples or anything else that might jam the scanner.
Indexing involves associating relevant keywords to files so that they can be retrieved by content. This process can sometimes be automated to some extent, but it often requires manual labour performed by data-entry clerks.
One common practice is the use of barcode -recognition technology: during preparation, barcode sheets with folder names or index information are inserted into the document files, folders, and document groups. Using automatic batch scanning, the documents are saved into appropriate folders, and an index is created for integration into document-management systems. A specialized form of document scanning is book scanning. Technical difficulties arise from the books usually being bound and sometimes fragile and irreplaceable, but some manufacturers have developed specialized machinery to deal with this.
Often special robotic mechanisms are used to automate the page turning and scanning process.
Document camera scanners[ edit ] sceyeX document camera. Another category of document scanner is the document camera. Capturing images on document cameras differs from that of flatbed and Automatic document feeder ADF scanners in that there are no moving parts required to scan the object. Document cameras capture the whole document or object in one step, usually instantly. Typically, documents are placed on a flat surface, usually the office desk, underneath the capture area of the document camera.
The process of whole-surface-at-once capturing has the benefit of increasing reaction time for the work flow of scanning.
After being captured, the images are usually processed through software which may enhance the image and perform such tasks like automatically rotating, cropping and straightening them. Objects which have previously been difficult to scan on conventional scanners are now able to be done so with one device. Other objects include books, magazines, receipts, letters, tickets etc. No moving parts can also remove the need for maintenance, a consideration in the Total cost of ownership , which includes the continuing operational costs of scanners.
Increased reaction time whilst scanning also has benefits in the realm of context-scanning.
ADF scanners, whilst very fast and very good at batch scanning, also require pre- and post- processing of the documents.
Document cameras are able to be integrated directly into a Workflow or process, for example a teller at a bank. The document is scanned directly in the context of the customer, in which it is to be placed or used. Reaction time is an advantage in these situations. Document cameras usually also require a small amount of space and are often portable. There are challenges which face this kind of technology regarding external factors such as lighting which may have influence on the scan results.
The way in which these issues are resolved strongly depends on the sophistication of the product and how it deals with these issues.
