    • Part #: 1298/8
    • Build #: 11.0.105.12
  • Support for asynchronous scanning
    With asynchronous scanning, the scanning and processing steps can be performed in parallel because the recognition of scanned pages can start before all pages are scanned. Thus, the use of asynchronous scanning increases the speed of document processing.
  • Ability to export files into memory stream
    The new method allows to export recognized documents to memory to be sent directly to a secured database or an external file storage. This function is of high benefit in high-secure business environments, such as banks or govermental institutions.
  • Information about unreleased objects
    New method for logging information about unreleased objects when working with the Engine object is useful for developers using programming languages without garbage collector and important in debugging scenarios.
  • Automatic uninstallation of FlexiCapture Engine runtime library
