Supported Scanner Vendors
Supported Scanner Drivers
EzeScan PRO includes built in TWAIN scanning support, so it will work directly with most TWAIN compliant scanners. Scanners supporting the TWAIN 1.9 specification or higher should work with EzeScan. Most well maintained TWAIN drivers are now at least TWAIN 2.0/2.1/2.2 compliant.. We suggest using TWAIN for production batch scanning.
There is an optional ISIS scanning module available for purchase which will provide ISIS support for ISIS compliant scanners. There is no real need to use ISIS if you already have a TWAIN compliant scanner.
EzeScan PRO includes built in WIA scanning support, so it will work with most WIA compliant scanners. WIA (Windows Imaging Acquisition) is very lightweight and best suited to scanning single pages at a time, not batch scanning of multiple pages or documents. We suggest to only use WIA when no other drivers exist for your scanner.
Digital Photocopiers, MFP's and Network Scanner Devices
Simply scan to a network file share, and then use the standard import file/folder functionality in EzeScan PRO to import your scanned images into EzeScan for processing.
Choosing Your Scanning Device
Features to consider when selecting the right scanner:
Minimum and maximum document paper size (A4, A3, other)
Simplex vs Duplex (single sided vs double sided)
Scanner speed (PPM - pages per minute/IPM - images per minute)
Scanner speed in black & white, grayscale and colour modes
Can you scan in landscape mode? It's faster to do this.
Correctly size the ADF (50,100, 250, 500, 500+ sheets)
Look for automated features (auto paper size, auto colour detection, auto threshold detection)
Ultrasonic multi feed detection and paper jam handling
Warranty offered (3 months, 12 months, extended)
Service delivery (is it return to base or onsite?)
Availability and cost of consumables such as cleaning kits and roller kits
How often will the consumables need to be replaced?
Are you back scanning? (large backlog with high volumes for months)
Or are you day forward scanning? (lower volumes per day)
Shorten a back scanning project timeframe by short term renting several scanning workstations (PC+ software + high volume scanners)
Do you need seamless integration with ECM, EDRMS, Finance or other backend systems?
Highly Recommended Scanners
Below is a list of scanners/devices that should work with the latest release of EzeScan 4.3. The following scanners are highly recommended by us because these Scanner Vendors regularly update their scanner drivers with new features and fixes.
We regularly test that these scanners will work with EzeScan. Some newly released scanners may be absent from the list below, because they have not gone through our Scanner Certification process. Some older scanner models have
struck through because the Scanner Manufacturer has announced them as being End of Life (EOL), so we no longer accept support calls related to these scanners.

HP 9000 (Note: This scanner driver supports Auto Paper Sizing in its TWAIN driver, but not in its ISIS driver)
HP N9120 (Note: This scanner driver does not support Auto Paper Sizing in its TWAIN or ISIS driver)
Please Note: In our experience HP are very slow to release driver updates for their scanners. So if something doesn't work you're stuck with it (unless we can figure out a workaround).

We do not provide ongoing support for scanners that have been made End Of Life (EOL) by the scanner manufacturers. We will not modify our code to fix issues found with EOL scanners. We encourage our customers to upgrade their scanners every 3 years well before they become EOL.
We strongly recommend using a scanner with a USB 2.0/3.0 connection (as we do not support scanners that use SCSI connections).
It is your responsibility to confirm that your combination of scanner, interface card and TWAIN / ISIS / WIA driver will work with EzeScan. This is due to the fact that some manufacturers do not support WIA or ISIS. Most support TWAIN out of the box. Quite often the scanner drivers supplied on the CD with the scanner are outdated. Scanner manufacturers release new device firmware and drivers on a regular basis to fix driver problems that exist on their product CD's, or to release new driver features. Some older drivers may only work on 32 bit versions of Windows Operating Systems, and some drivers are not certified as Windows 7, 8 or 10 compliant. So we suggest that you make sure that your device firmware and scanner drivers are up to date, and work on your Windows OS before you start using EzeScan.
If you are unsure about what type of scanner you have, drop us an email and we'll see if we can help you identify if it is TWAIN / ISIS / WIA compatible. We suggest downloading an evaluation copy of EzeScan to confirm that your scanner will work in a satisfactory manner with EzeScan.
We have over 70 scanner models in our test lab and we are constantly updating our test scanners as manufacturers release new models.
