How to Correct Stitching Issue with Image Access Scanners

How to Correct Stitching Issues with Image Access WideTek Scanners

By Large Documents - September 14, 2018

Stitching problems with Image Access WT36, 44, 48 scanners can be attributed to an incorrect scanning configuration.  For most scanning (99%), it is recommended that you configure your scanning jobs either with Scan2Net or BSW to scan “Adaptive 2D”.

There are three modes of Scanning

  1. Fixed - Stitch is fixed at the Glass plate if the Paper move away from the Glass as it scans you will see the Stitch (as in the Case of your image that you sent)
  2. Off – The Scanner does not do any Stitching (only on Flatbed and Art Scanner)
  3. 2D adaptive Stitch – The Scanner will do all the Stitching for you. 99% of the Scanning should be done with 2D adaptive Stitching
It is easy to check a scanned image for parameters.  A TIF file format works the best.  Using either Microsoft Wordpad or Notepad to open the scanned file.  In the header of the file lists how the scanned image was created.  See the sample below.  Notice the parameter “stitchadaptive=off”.  This file was not scanned with “adaptive 2D”.

[Stitch]
L0=174
W0=7184
L3=137
W3=7184
stitch_x=-10.3, -9.9, -7.2,
stitch_y=-0.6, -1.1, -1.2,
stitchadaptive=off
stitch_debug=0
print_to_console=0

Here is how to adjust to adaptive 2d In Batch Scan Wizard (BSW).  Another method is to user Scan2Net and set the parameter, then open the “default” template in BSW and the configuration will be already set.

For more information to configuring this scanning feature or other questions about  Image Access, Colotrac, Contex or Graphtec scanners give us a call at (866) 338-4464.  Mention you read about this on Large Document Solutions “News” page.

How to Update the Image Access GUI Display

Updating the GUI is as easy as 1-2-3

By Large Documents - April 11, 2018

We at Large Document Solutions along with Image Access development recommend only using the ScanWizard software.  Both the EasyScan and ScanWizard are displayed on the scanner display from the factory.  The Inclination is to pick the "Easy" one.  This is not the best choice.  Yes, the application is simplier to use but does not include many of the standard features that are needed for scanning and saving.  It does not contain saving to network devices and some of the post scan features.  

To disable or remove an application from the scanner display, follow these steps:

1)  Lauch the web version of Scan2NET

2)  Select "Setup Device" and enter the password for "Poweruser".
3)  At the 2nd set of buttons, "Base Settings" group, select "TouchScreen GUI"

4)  Then uncheck "EasyScan" and click restart GUI.

5)  That's It!
