ScanWizardTM Pro scanning software ( PC Only )
This is an advanced scanner controller program that provides many powerful, professional-level features for scanning. ScanWizard Pro features two-color spaces, allowing users to work in the Native CMYK / RGB mode, as well as in the intuitive LCH (Lightness, Chroma, Hue) mode.

Auto Dynamic Range
The system automatically determines the lightest density or tone (Dmin) and darkest tone (Dmax) of the original; then it captures the image color data with the full input tonal range of the scanner. This setting optimizes color balance and the contrast of the output image and is most useful for scanning negative films.

Multiple Sampling
Multiple Sampling is a process in which the scanner samples each line in the image a number of times, then obtains an average to reduce random noise.

Descreen feature can remove moire patterns when scanning pictures or photographs printed in magazines or newspapers.
