ELAN Precise Page Positioning™
A production-oriented image cleanup, margin positioning and tool for scanned document images.
Precise Page Positioning (PPP) is an image
processing application for the document management, book production and
printing markets. The program processes large volumes of raster files,
and creates clean images for print-on-demand applications, document
management systems and PDF publishing systems. PPP™ is
also integrated with other ELAN GMK imaging and printing software
offerings where it serves as an external, high performance image
processor. PPP ia also available as a pluging for Accent Capture®
by Kofax Image Products is an Accent
Capture Module that adds advanced image processing capabilities.
With Precise Page Positioning™, the page alignment and front to back
registration of the page content can be automated using
high-performance image processing utilities. Until now, tedious manual
cleanup was required to prepare scanned images before submitting them
to the printing or PDF conversion process. Additionally, the built-in
raster editor gives you the flexibility to perform manual editing of
problematic files without leaving the program environment.

Precise Page Positioning is developed to position
scanned images on an imaginary plate or canvas with a very high degree
of accuracy and reliability. A wide array of inspection and editing
options give you absolute control over the margin registration process.
This makes PPP particularly useful as a Quality Control tool. We have
published the help files
on-line for your reference.
Take a look at the impressive array of functionality:
Digital printing is getting more and more popular in the industry.
With PPP, you can finally automate your page positioning (also called
front to back alignment) tasks. Until now, tedious manual cleanup was
necessary to prepare scanned images before submitting them to the
printing or PDF conversion process. PPP fits right into your workflow,
used as a tool between the scanner and impositioning software. The
image processing process provided by PPP is highly automated.
One of the important features of the software is the first class
quality control capabilities. If PPP encounters a bad scan or another
irregularity, an exception condition will be created; PPP will flag it,
and the operator will be able to use a wide array of visual display
aids to determine what went wrong and correct the problem using the
easy to use interface.
These visual QC and editing features include:
- Thumbnail Display throughout the process
- Input and Output Overview after processing
- Investigation Window of Input and Output images with
Focused Zoom(tm) technology
- Quick image editing tools
- Windows 95
- NT 4.0 SP6
- Windows 2000
- Windows XP
- Windows Vista
- Windows 7
PPP will run on an IBM-compatible PC with minimum operating system
configuration, which varies depending on the operating system. For
example, a Windows 95 PC will run with 120 MHz PII, 64 MB RAM. Other
operating systems have higher requirements.
Fast, single-processor PC with fast hard disk and high performance
system bus. Windows XP/7 with 2GB RAM. Heavy color document scanning
requires 4 GB RAM. A high performance graphics card and a 19"+ monitor
with 1920x1024+ pixel resolution is also recommended.
