Product Overview


ScanTools Prisma is menu-driven for easy scanner interface setup. Using point-and-click controls, you can quickly define the data collection areas on a standard or custom scan form and specify the format and location for the output file.

ScanTools Prisma features:

  • Built-in ImageFlex technology for rapid, simultaneous pencil or ink OMR data and image capture
  • Built-in ScanFlex technology for flexible scanning of forms printed to lower tolerances, such as plain paper forms
  • Identify images areas on forms to “clip” and archive for later retrieval—ideal for capturing signatures, short answers, and “show your work areas” on tests
  • Improved image archiving:
    • Whole-page images and image clips
    • Multiple available output formats, image resolutions, and levels of compression
    • Send images to a single folder for simple archiving, direct different images or image clips to different locations for complex, on-the-fly archive sorting, or do both
    • Use any data on the form to name images
  • Define unique edit criteria each time you scan
  • Add constants to each record
  • Set output file location and format for easy import into application software
  • Score while you’re scanning (if you’re scanning an assessment form)
  • Batch score by appending data to your original scan file
  • Save your scan profile for reuse at a later date

Advanced Character Recognition

Advanced Character Recognition provides a flexible option for capturing image-based hand print and machine print data recognition. This optional module expands your data capture abilities.
