Support for the Kodak i5800 Controlled Dual Stacking Accessory. This new accessory includes a new exit tray with two output stacks. When this accessory is purchased and installed the TWAIN and ISIS scanner drivers will include options to separate either separator sheets(with patch codes) or short documents into an exception stack. There is also an option to trigger exception stacking for pages that trigger a multifeed event. This accessory will allow new or existing customers to cost effectively reuse separator sheets. The accessory will also automatically separate checks or other small documents from the batch. Refer to the User’s Guide and driver setup guides for more information. (Firmware and driver update required) This release includes an improved blank page deletion feature that will allow much more control over the deletion or inclusion of pages with very little text. The blank page deletion feature can now distinguish differences between blank pages, and pages with just few characters. Customers that are upgrading from previous firmware versions (who do not adjust their blank page deletion threshold) may find that more pages with sparse text will be included in their image stream. Customers may wish to use the drivers blank page threshold learn feature on the new firmware to re-adjust their blank page deletion threshold. In general, a blank page deletion threshold setting of 5% in the old firmware will be equivalent to about 12% after upgrading to this firmware. (Firmware and driver update required) Added full support for Kodak Asset Management software. The Kodak Asset Management software is a scanner remote monitoring and update solution available for Kodak scanners. This software will allow customers to remotely monitor scanner usage, performance, maintenance, and errors from a web based application. The software will also allow remote update for TWAIN and ISIS drivers and TWAIN shortcuts.
