Re: Announcing the Archivist Scanner and a Beta Program!

Are there any videos of the archivist in action? So far none have jumped out at me from the forum.

Thanks.

Re: Scan Tailor is looking for a new maintainer

I was very excited by the news that Nate was taking over as ST maintainer. There was a wonderful flurry of activity - new website (very nice) with google groups lists, a plan for integrating some features from the enhanced version, etc. In short, a wonderful new start for ST. I hope that this work w...

Re: Newbie and bookscanning software

Hi - Homer looks promising. Will it work for a two-camera system? Will it work on a 64 bit Windows machine?

Thanks!

Re: PDFBeads 1.0.9 for Windows

Hi all, I've seen that JBIG2 does not work on an x64 platform. Previously someone had compiled a version for x64 but the links are now dead. I am not a programmer and don't know how to do things like "compile"... Could someone help? I'm using this tutorial to install PDFBeads: http://www.youtube.com...

Re: 0.9.11.1 release

A question on versions: I just checked my version of Scan Tailor and it is 1.0.0beta9 Is there still a beta version of ST? or should I download the 9.11.1? I recall that at one time the "manual" select content feature was introduced on a trial basis. Is that a standard feature now? I'd like to be su...

Re: Postprocessing: The hardware/software divide

If there's any interest out there in trying to find some money to help incentivize work on the software side of things, please message me. As Daniel noted, action on this will have to come from the community. My sense is that it may be hard to do this (raise funds, try to find some help in the form ...

Re: Postprocessing: The hardware/software divide

Hi, Agreed, in full, with both of you. I hope I didn't come across as asking for more from those who have given so much. I also hope my comments don't seem like criticism,in the negative sense. Rather, from the point of view of an end user, I hoped to provide some insight into what stands between me...

Re: Postprocessing: The hardware/software divide

Hi all, Tried to get back to that post and edit it (recently dislocated finger posing problems for typing, combined with crying kids in need of attention), but it seems the 24 hour editing window was not working for editing. In any case, I think it is intelligible enough to be worth reading. Thanks ...

Postprocessing: The hardware/software divide

Having successfully built a book scanner a while back, I've been away from these boards for a while. Having returned to check in on recent developments, I see that there's been a lot of movement on the hardware side of things. Daniel's new hacker space plywood model is so cool. I'd love to have a BM...
