How to get the monochrom image if we scan in color ?

We want to scan the hole batch in color mode.
But pages with a barcode must be always bitonal, no matter if it is a colored page.

How is it possible to get the monochrom (bitonal) image after I got the colored image ?

I think you should look into VRS Pro. It can scan in color all the time and then scan in B&W when needed dynamically.

Hi Mike,

thank you for your answer.

That's how we work today, but sometimes a page is recognized as a color image and we want it as a monochrom (bitonal) image.

The question is, is it possible to get the bitonal image if we got the color image from VRS ?

I think the enhanced barcode engine can detect barcodes in color

I think Kofax make a bitonal copy of any color images for things like recognition. Perhaps there's a way with custom programming to shuffle things around so that page becomes bitonal.

There's no way to do what you want out of the box. All I can suggest is to fine tune VRS's settings so it doesn't give you color when it shouldn't.

Hi Russel,

thank you for you answer.
What I know is, the OCR recognition modul is making a bitonal image.
But the impact is, we have to to run the recognition for every page in a batch.

What we are looking for is a custom programming solution where we can say give me the bitonal version of this image or convert this image from
color to bitonal. Does anybody know a way how to do that with imagecontrols or a other library ?
