The LEADTOOLS SANE API provides a powerful set of functions, including in-depth support for image acquisition from a wide variety of hardware devices.
The API is a 'native' shared object library for running SANE scanners on Linux. It supports image acquisition from any Scanner Access Now Easy (SANE) device.
Scanner Access Now Easy (SANE) is an API for handling image acquisition from scanning devices. The SANE API is designed so that only one driver needs to be written for each scanning device. Batch operations are easy to set up: options are selected once and used on each item in a set.
The LEADTOOLS SANE SDK consists of a Linux API (LtSane), a Java library (Leadtools.Sane), and a server library (Leadtools.Sane.Server). This toolkit is included with LEADTOOLS Document and Medical Imaging products.
