Web Scan SDK Features

Live detection & auto snapping

Detects the document in real-time and automatically captures the document when all conditions are met.

User guidance

Our interactive scanning UI guides the user into the best scanning position to give you a straight and clear scan. This process was fine-tuned over years and used by millions of users.

Perspective correction

The perspective correction algorithm makes sure that the document is straightened and has the expected aspect ratio.

Automatic cropping

The automatic cropping will cut-out the document from the captured image and will give you a perfect looking scan. The cropping UI allows users to adjust the crop if needed.

Output as JPG or PDF

The Web Document Scanner SDK supports JPG and PDF as output formats. With PDF you can have multiple pages in one file.

This is just the beginning, and we are continuously developing more functionality for the Web Scanner SDK.
Please get in touch to discuss your individual requirements.

Intelligent image filtering

Over the years we have developed a set of image filters that work perfectly for documents. We've got something for every type of document and use-case. The Black & White Filter with its extreme compression allows you to have tiny files. Our Grayscale and Color filters are tuned for documents with images and preserve all details. Our Magic Color filter goes a step further and features an automatic content detection to optimize parts of the page accordingly. The results are bright and sharp documents that look like an enhanced digital version of the original.
