Contex announced Nextimage 3.1, a free upgrade to its wide-format scanning software. This update adds several new features, including an enhanced adaptive thresholding algorithm and new spot-on auto-sizing. Additionally, solution includes drivers for Oce's wide-format printer range, including Oce PlotWave, Oce ColorWave, TCS, and TDS series, and for the EPSON SC-T wide format printer.
Nextimage's enhancements to the adaptive thresholding algorithm improves the users' experience for scanning both old and new monochrome documents by cleaning the background while preserving details in the grayscale, the company says. The new auto-size algorithm ensures higher quality scans by precisely determining the width of documents against the background. The algorithm also optimizes documents that have very fine lines and fills.
Other improvements to Nextimage 3.1 include support for 64-bit TWAIN clients, support for the Canon iPF760/765, and added bi-directional communication with Canon printers via LAN.
