ROUND ROCK, Texas, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Neuone, LLC, a leader in content capture technologies, offers the airScan™ mobile smart phone app for document scanning, featuring ImageLock auto-leveling that scans a document at the optimal camera position relative to the document for best image quality. The app uses an onscreen alignment tool and the smart phone's internal sensors to detect when the camera is level, triggering the scanning of image.
Unlike desktop scanners, smart phone scanning is controlled by the hands of the user, introducing variables such as camera angle/aspect, distance and lighting. The biggest problem with smart phone scanning has been controlling the camera angle to capture a perfectly oriented image with a consistent focus. airScan™ mobile's ImageLock auto-leveling feature eliminates this camera aspect variability, resulting in a single depth of field across the entire document so that each word is in precise focus. Smart phone apps typically allow cropping, adjusting and flattening of images to correct for such variables. airScan™ mobile includes all those features, but takes a major leap forward by capturing a better image from the start.
To use airScan™ mobile, a document is placed on a flat surface and the user holds the smart phone above it. Similar to a video game targeting mechanism, the user aligns two onscreen sights at the center of the image until the crosshairs converge, and ImageLock auto-triggers the camera to snap an image. The image can still be cropped and adjusted, but with an already-flat and precisely focused image, distortion of text is minimized. The auto-leveling feature can also be turned off to allow manual scanning at any angle. Once the user is satisfied with the image, it is saved, filed, password protected, or shared through Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, Facebook, Twitter, iCloud, email (to yourself or others), or the Camera Roll.
