ScanTools Prisma provides the accuracy of OMR data and the ability to gather critical images—all in a single pass through the scanner. Scantron ImageFlex™, ScanFlex™, and the optional Advanced Character Recognition modules offer additional scanning and imaging options.
ScanTools Prisma is menu-driven for easy scanner interface setup. Using point-and-click controls, you can quickly define the data collection areas on a standard or custom scan form and specify the format and location for the output file.
ScanTools Prisma features:
- Built-in ImageFlex technology for rapid, simultaneous pencil or ink OMR data and image capture
- Built-in ScanFlex technology for flexible scanning of forms printed to lower tolerances, such as plain paper forms
- Identify images areas on forms to “clip” and archive for later retrieval—ideal for capturing signatures, short answers, and “show your work areas” on tests
- Improved image archiving:
- Whole-page images and image clips
- Multiple available output formats, image resolutions, and levels of compression
- Send images to a single folder for simple archiving, direct different images or image clips to different locations for complex, on-the-fly archive sorting, or do both
- Use any data on the form to name images
- Define unique edit criteria each time you scan
- Add constants to each record
- Set output file location and format for easy import into application software
- Score while you’re scanning (if you’re scanning an assessment form)
- Batch score by appending data to your original scan file
- Save your scan profile for reuse at a later date
Advanced Character Recognition
Advanced Character Recognition provides a flexible option for capturing image-based hand print and machine print data recognition. This optional module expands your data capture abilities.
