ltran,
That is what I feared. We deal with a very wide variety of documents and have clarity on is a help. Since you mention QC later. We have never had good success with that, can someone please explain how that is supposed to work? We do have QC is our workflowso it might be a good fit.

The way QC Later works is that you set brightness and/or contrast limits. If those limits are exceeded at scan time, it's flagged as a error. But the scanner won't stop. Instead, it will show up in QC where you'll be required to manually adjust each image that failed.

At least that's how it worked when I researched it. If it's changed, I'd like to know.

I think you had to be at a certain licensing level for it to work. No VRS "Desktop". I'm not sure if it has to be Pro or not.

Here is the link to QC Later on Kofax Kwnoledgebase

http://knowledgebase.kofax.com/faqsearc ... QAID=12486

We tried it before but it didn't quite working as we hope. So we decided to let the QC op correct the image in QC.

I also notice that on the Fujitsu 5650C, turn on advanced clarity does not affect the scan speed. I guess turn on advanced clarity slow down the scan speed to 50-60 ppm which is the normal scan speed for the 5650C. That's why I don't see the slowness compare to the 5900C.

some explanation tech support why the scanner slows down when advanced Clarity is turned on:

Advanced Clarity is handled on the host end (Software VRS). It
does not make a difference whether the scanner is connected via SCSI or USB.


Advanced Clarity and Blank Page deletion (due to the intense computing
requirements) are almost always handled by the host, while Auto-Brightness
and Deskew are almost always handled by the HVRS
board. The other functions can be performed by either and are delegated to
the HVRS board as much as possible. Factors such as the image resolution,
version of the HVRS board, and
amount of onboard RAM are taken into account when assigning these functions.

It helps to think of HVRS as Hardware Assisted VRS.

We have the same problem. Kofax Capture 9, VRS 4.5, Fujitsu 5900C scanners, USB interface, 3 year old workstation with dual core CPU, Windows XP, and 1GB RAM.

At 200dpi it scans at rated speed. At 300dpi, it slows down about 30% after 20 pages have been scanned. If we turn on hole punch removal even slower. If we turn on advanced clarity, much slower.

Can this be improved? We have 650i cards and cables. Some people say USB works just as good, but this post seems to indicated 650i card should be used.

Would like to scan at 300dpi with advanced VRS features enable at or near rated speed.

Thanks,
Alan

VRS elite, recently released supports multi-core CPU utilization better, may want to check that out. Although we have seem some issues with dual core CPU machines, would advise testing on your hardware.

hi!

I suggest You to avoid VRS elite with KC at the moment, I had some serious issues with it (reported to support).
But in theory this should make it faster, as on Production license level (FI5900 has that) it supports multicore processors for image processing.

Hando,
Would be interested in the issues you were seeing as we also saw a few. Did support offer any fixes or timeframes for updates?

Hi!

We had first problem with separator sheets and blank page deletion, that caused first page of document to be deleted. Later we encountered strange errors in communication with scanner. This forced us to reinstall workstation back to VRS 4.5SP1
