Tricerat Simplify Scanning
Universal Scanner Driver
Simplify Scanning is a remote desktop scanning management solution that uses a universal “virtual” scanner driver that queries local scanners for their capabilities, such as resolution and supported paper sizes, and then forwards these scanner connections to be virtualized on a remote server or virtual desktop. Simplify Scanning compresses data to decrease network bandwidth consumption and achieve the scanning.
Stop managing scanner drivers. Get faster speeds and eliminate errors in remote scanning sessions for a better user experience.
Remote scanning with speeds up to 10x faster with a single universal virtual driver. With scanner redirection, Simplify Scanning removes the need to manage multiple devices in a remote desktop and hosted application environment.
High-speed scanning solution for virtual and remote environments. Eliminate delays and hang-ups in scanning, and ensure transmissions reach their destination.
- Whether black and white, color, or grayscale, data is compressed to decrease transfer rates (up to 80% faster than USB redirection)
- Eliminate driver device management and the need to install drivers with our universal virtual scanner driver
- Gain complete access over scanner functionality by communicating directly with TWAIN or WIA drivers
- HDX / ICA
Supports TWAIN or WIA drivers
Stop managing scanner drivers. Simplify Scanning removes the need to manage scanner drivers on the server-side, serving as a universal, virtual driver. Experience unmatched speed in remote scanning sessions, with TWAIN and WIA drivers supported for maximum compatibility.
Access complete scanner functionality with our virtual scanner driver. Manage scanners and users from one centralized, easy to use management console. Automatic updates and licenses are only managed over the server, rather than each client.
No more workarounds, just seamless scanning with superior client device recognition handled by the software automatically. Simplify Scanning works seamlessly with Tricerat’s additional enterprise software for a full picture, robust solution that includes printing and user management.
Scanning speeds up to 10x faster than USB-redirected scanning for black and white, and speeds up to 4x faster for color. The universal driver provides increased application compatibility, reduced bandwidth consumption, and optimized transmission.
Return on Investment
Save time and increase productivity, with up to 10x faster scanning with a universal virtual scanner driver. Simplify Scanning allows quick ROI by eliminating instances of incompatible scanner drivers, unsupported drivers and applications, constant software upgrades, and time-consuming workarounds.
Eliminate scanner driver management
Simplify Scanning uses a universal scanner driver that queries local scanners for their capabilities, such as resolution and supported paper sizes, forwarding them to be virtualized on the remote server or virtual desktop.
10x faster scanning
When thoroughly tested in a remote environment, Simplify Scanning performed more than 10X faster than a standard, driver-configured scanning process. Uses LZ4 algorithms to maximize compression and minimize CPU overhead.
Decrease network bandwidth consumption
Whether you’re scanning in black and white, color, or grayscale, Simplify Scanning compresses data to get the job done quickly and reliably, while decreasing network bandwidth consumption.
Increased application compatibility
By creating a single point of access with the virtual scanner driver and communicating only the necessary commands over the virtual channel to ensure scan transmissions reach their destination, our solution eliminates delays or hang-ups commonly associated with virtual scanning.
Simplify Scanning Infrastructure
A user can connect to a client in one of two ways to use Simplify Scanning for scanning from the attached local or network scanners or multifunctional peripherals (MFP) that offer scanning. In both cases, the scanner drivers are installed on the local computer.
- A user can connect to a server operating system over an RDP, ICA, or PCoIP connection from a client with a desktop or server operating system to scan to the local scanners.
- A user can connect to a desktop operating system over an RDP, ICA, or PCoIP connection from a client with a desktop or server operating system to scan to the local scanners.
