Technical Specifications

The Vividriver® API is a software utility that enables systems integrators, OEMs and software developers to integrate scanning into their own applications quickly and easily. Its modular and open architecture offers exceptional value and strategic advantages.

API user interface and scanner controls:

Via the API, your application can call the preview/scan parameters dialog and scan images into files or memory.

Device independence:

The High Level Drivers provide peripheral device independence. The Vividriver API insulates you from the details of any particular device.

Host adaptor independence:

Low Level Drivers insulate you from the details of various host adaptors. Sun's SCSA and SI systems are supported.

Platform independence:

With the multitude of operating systems in use today and coming in the future, the Vividriver API makes your job easier because your code for imaging peripherals will be the same on all platforms.

List of scanners supported:

These scanners are currently supported. Vividata can add new scanner support on a custom basis. Please inquire about your specific needs.
