General information
epoScan has been developed by the European Patent Office (EPO) to allow the scanning of patent
applications, trademark registrations, and related documents for ePhoenix systems as well as
published IP documents for patent dissemination systems like BNS and espacenet.
ePHOENIX is also a product developed by the European Patent Office. It is a Java-based patent
dossier management system. BNS is the European Patent Office’s service for storing and delivering
published patents and non-patent literature.
The epoScan installation CD comes with drivers for almost all ISIS® scanners with a SCSI interface.
For some of the very large capacity scanners a separate licence may have to be acquired. All the
other third party components such as
•
•
•
barcode reading
image enhancement
ASPI32 drivers.
are included in the installation.
The epoScan product can be installed on all modern Windows platforms and it will operate on a
single PC or on several machines connected to a central server. This allows the same product to be
installed on a series of machines with each machine dedicated to a particular feature such as
scanning and image enhancement.

epoScan installation
Note:
•
Full administrator rights are required on the PC in order to install epoScan otherwise
certain DLLs cannot be installed.
•
If it is intended for Firebird, Oracle, or MaxDB to be the management database for
epoScan it is necessary to install it.
•
Installation of the ASPI32 drivers (version 7.1) is required for scanning . (Read the
readme.txt file on the CD for installation instructions).
epoScan will install in the directory C:\Program Files\epoScan by default, but any other directory
can be selected. To perform the installation process
•
•
•
•
•
•
insert the CD
open the CD and go to epoScan directory
double click on Setup.exe
the welcome screen opens
click on Next
change destination location
Figure 1: change destination location
•
•
click on Next
select the type of documents you intend to scan:
•
•
•
applications (for ePhoenix)
patents (for literature)
others (such as trademarks).

Note
Switching between the different types of document scanning by the user is still possible.

Database installation
The epoScan database is needed in order to manage the scanning process and needs to be
installed. A system database is also required, to store the program settings, such as
•
•
•
4.1
authorisation
users
databases.
System database type selection
The type of system database has to be chosen before installation of the epoScan software. The
epoScan software has been built to work with four types of databases, which are categorised into
two groups:
•
•
Group 1, stored locally or on a central server, suitable for small sites with few workstations
•
MS Access (No licenses required).
Group 2, stored on the database server, suitable for large sites with many workstations
•
Firebird (Open Source DB – no licenses required)
•
Oracle (License is required).
•
MaxDB (Open Source DB – no licenses required).
Select the database type you want to use with epoScan:
Access
Firebird
Oracle
MaxDB
Figure 3: setup type
4.1.1
Installation with MS Access
The MS Access database is sufficient for small offices that operate one or two low or medium
volume production scanners. If higher scanning volumes are expected or more scanners are
installed it is highly recommended to use Firebird, Oracle, or MaxDB as the database.
If MS Access is installed on the PC then this can be used as usual to view the database tables and
the contents.
During installation database templates are installed in the epoScan directory. When the installation
is finished these templates can be copied to a different directory or a directory on a central server.
The available templates are
•
•
•
EpoScan_app.mdb, a database for application scanning
EpoScan_pat.mdb, a database for patent scanning
EpoScan_oth.mdb, a database for other scanning.
Page 14 of 79
4.1.2
Installation with Firebird
Firebird is an open source database and has been selected by the EPO for several of its epoline
products. To view the database tables and the contents of these tables install the Firebird user
interface found on the CD in \EPOSCAN\Firebird\GUI.
Before installing epoScan, Firebird must be installed on the scan server and on scanning
workstation(s).
Note:
The order of installation on the client workstation is important, first Firebird and
then epoScan.
Figure 4: select components
4.1.2.1
On the server:
Open the CD and open EpoScan directory
Open Firebird directory
Double click on Firebird-[version]-Win32.exe
If requested to select components select Full installation of server and development tools for
installation on the server
4.1.2.2
On the client
Select Minimum client install for installation on the client, which is the epoScan work station.
During installation database templates are installed in the epoScan directory. When the installation
is finished these templates can be copied to a different directory or a directory on a central server.
The available templates are
•
•
•
EpoScan_app.gdb, a database for application scanning
EpoScan_pat.gdb, a database for patent scanning
EpoScan_oth.gdb, a database for other scanning
Page 15 of 79
4.1.3
Installation with Oracle
When using the Oracle database the National Office (NO) must purchase the required Oracle
license.
Note:
Only those sufficiently qualified and experienced should attempt to install Oracle
There are installation instructions in the epoScan/Oracle directory. The installer must read
the documents Readme.txt and EpoDB.doc before attempting an installation.
4.1.4
Installation with MaxDB
When using the MaxDB database the National Office (NO) must obtain MaxDB, which is licensed in
two ways, public licence or commercial licence. Please see http://www.mysql.com/products/maxdb/
Note:
Only those sufficiently qualified and experienced should attempt to installMaxDB
There are installation instructions in the epoScan/MaxDB directory. The installer must read
the documents Readme.txt and EpoDB.doc before attempting an installation.
4.1.4.1
Installing MaxDB on Microsoft Windows
Microsoft Windows 2000 SP2 or higher is required
To install MaxDB:
•
•
•
•
•
4.1.4.2
Change to the maxdb-all-win-32bit-i386-imbeta-7_5_00_19 directory.
Double-click SDBSETUP.exe To start the Installation Manager
Choose Start MaxDB installation.
Follow the instructions of the Installation Manager.
After finishing the installation, reboot Microsoft Windows.
On the server
Install the software maxdb-all-win-32bit-i386-7_5_00_23.zip
Please see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/maxdb/instguide.html#windows for install instructions
4.1.4.3
On the client
Before installing eposcan you have to install a client ODBC driver on the epoScan workstation. To do this run
odbc75.exe (EPOScan\MAXDB\ODBC driver\odbc75.exe).

Scanning mode
Options
Option
Result
Stop
Index file is used during scanning. Scanning will stop if a mismatch
between pages indexed and pages scanned is found. Scan operator is
able to correct scan/index errors immediately.
Non stop
Index file is used during scanning but scanning doesn’t stop. When
scanning is complete an automatic index process will run. During this
process the comparison between pages indexed and pages scanned is
made. If errors are found they are displayed in a list and the operator can
correct the errors using the Document Correction functionality.
Post controls
No index file required.
Used for scanning other- and patent documents.
If patent document are scanned in this mode, images can be used for
manual indexing afterwards.

Scanning configuration
10.2.1
Page orientation
Dependent on the paper quality (for example; position of staple holes, position of perforated date)
specific page orientation can be selected.
Scanning in landscape mode gives a 25% performance increase.
10.2.2
Software rotation
Most scanners can cope with pages fed in widthways and will rotate the image accordingly.
However, some devices may have difficulties in which case this setting will allow the epoScan
software to do the rotation (this is slower).
Checking this box will solve a known problem with Kodak 1500D.
10.3
Image
This setting determines the quality of the image scanned. Use binary for plain black text on white
paper and for documents with shades of grey use the appropriate level of grey. The more shades of
grey the larger the image file becomes.

Click on Adjust. The Color detection settings screen is displayed

Colour scanning
Colour scanning is available in all scanning modes, for all document types. Please see 10.1.
During application scanning, automatic switching between black white and colour is executed based
on a flag in the DMS file. Please see ePHOENIX Document Capture User Manual, section 3.8.1.
10.4.1
Automatic colour detection
Automatic Color detection causes an image to be processed as colour once the set threshold has
been reached.
Note:
Automatic colour detection is only available for application scanning.
Figure 54: color detection settings
The Threshold property is the minimum colourfulness threshold level. The average threshold of a
neighbourhood is compared to the threshold value that is set. If the threshold value is set to 0, then
all neighbourhoods are colourful because the average threshold of each neighbourhood is probably
greater than 0. If the threshold value is set to 256, then no neighbourhoods are colourful.
For most applications, the default colourfulness threshold is probably suitable. However, some
applications might require adjustment of this parameter. If only bright colours should trigger colour
processing, the colourfulness threshold might be increased to 200. If very pale colours need to be
detected, it might be lowered to 50.
The image is broken into cells and the Sample Size property sets the cell size for checking the
colour content.
For most applications, the default sampling neighbourhood is probably suitable. However, some
applications might require adjustment of these parameters. If the resolution is especially low (100
dpi or less), the sampling neighbourhood might be reduced to 1 x 1 or 2 x 2, and if it is high (600 dpi
or more), it might be increased to 5 x 5. Also, if the colour channel misalignment is particularly high,
the sampling neighbourhood might be increased to compensate.

Image enhancement
During or after scanning the need to improve image quality may become apparent. With image
enhancement epoScan provides a range of tools which can improve the quality of scanned images.
Note
Please bear in mind that every applied enhancement takes computer/scanner processing
time and will slow down the overall scanning process.
Image enhancement implies some modification of the image. Test the settings first to ensure
that they do not cause any loss of data, such as faint text.
Never perform the same enhancement twice as this can produce very strange results.
epoScan scan offers the possibility to enhance the quality of images , for example de-skew and
black border removal, by applying certain image enhancements. Enhancement of images can be
executed in three different phases of the process:
•
•
•
during scanning
during CD generation
as a separate process.
For the first two options the user is required to select which enhancement options they intend to
apply. Select Image à Batch Image Enhancement àSetup in the main window.
Page 66 of 79
The Setup of Image Enhancement screen is displayed.
Move one option item
Move all option items
Figure 73: setup of image enhancement
Note
EPO experience has shown that the order of the options is important; the options selected in
the window above, Border Removal and Deskew, are normally used and added in that order.
Click on OK. The image enhancement configuration screen is displayed.
11.3.1
Image enhancement deskew
Figure 74: image enhancement configuration
The default values are shown, but they can be altered as desired.
When de-skewing pages, most image enhancement tools will in some cases not properly deskew
drawings. To prevent this the EPO has chosen to exclude drawings from deskewing.
Page 67 of 79
11.3.2
Image enhancement image rotation
Click on Image Rotation.
Figure 75: image rotation
Rotation Degree should be set to 180° by clicking on that radio button. This allows rotating
individual pages during Document Correction, which are scanned up side down.
11.3.3
Image enhancement colour settings
Click on Black Overscan Removal. There are no settings which can be modified by the user.
Figure 76: black overscan removal
Page 68 of 79
Click on Deskew2. The default settings, which can be modified, are displayed.
Figure 77: deskew2
Both Black Overscan Removal and Deskew2 must be set in order to perform colour scanning.
11.3.4
Image enhancement preview
To preview the results of the selected image enhancement options select Image à Batch Image
Enhancement à Select a Batch à Select Setup à Select Preview in the main Window. In the left
window the image is displayed as scanned and in the right window the image is displayed after
enhancement.
Figure 78: image enhancement setup
Page 69 of 79
11.3.5
While scanning
The decision to apply image enhancement during scanning is dependent on several factors such as
•
•
•
•
•
the capacity of scan work station
the performance of scan work station
the type of scanner
the page orientation (rotation) selected
the type of documents (simplex or duplex).
because all these factors influence and can slow down the scan process.
Select Batch àScanàSetup in the main window and select by clicking on the radio buttons.
Figure 79: image enhancement while scanning
11.3.6
While generating CD
If it is decided to execute Image Enhancement during CD generation (only applicable for Application
Batches) select this option on the General settings window.
Figure 80: image enhancement while generating CD
11.3.7
As a separate process
In the main Window select Image à Batch Image Enhancement àSelect Batch(es) à Select OK.
Image enhancement will now be applied to all images of the selected batches/packages.
11.4
Calibration Manager
The Calibration Manager should be used to calibrate the scanner. In the main window:
•
•
select Setup
select Calibration Manager.
The wizard will guide the user through the calibration process
If the quality of the image is not satisfactory then changes to the scanner settings, such as
brightness and contrast, can be made.
Changes to the scan area can also be made.

Database batch status
If the scanning operator reports that a batch is no longer available for CD generation this is due the
fact that the status of this batch is such that it no longer appears in the list of batches available for
generation.
To correct this problem an operator with administration rights can correct or change the status of
affected batches by resetting the status back to - 1 - (Scanned).
The list indicating which error status can be set back to 1 can be configured in the Patentes.ini file
sub section [BATCHSTATUS]. In the example all batches have status 9, 32, 65 and 73 can be
modified to status 1. CurrentStatus means last status used.
[BATCHSTATUS]
CurrentStatus=9
Status1=9
Status2=32
Status3=65
Status4=73
To do this the administrator has to go to the ACCESS window and select Batch status
modification from the Database tab drop-down menu.
Figure 88: access window
The next window is displayed with the batches in status 9 (CurrentStatus). Another status can be
selected if the batches sought are not in the list.
Figure 89: batches with this status
Select one or more batches from Batches with this status and click on Add to place them in
Batches to be modified.
