Scanning with iKAN Scan

The scan process has 2 software applications working together to produce optimal images.
  1. KOFAX VRS (Virtual ReScan). This application runs in the background and performs image quality checks on every page scanned. VRS detects color on a page, removes black borders and background noise and also deskew each page.
  2. iKAN Scan. This is the scan application. The settings are controlled by the iKAN system. Documents can be scanned as batches or as single documents. The iKAN system communicates with VRS to ensure the correct type of page processing is used – either Black & White only or Color.


Both applications have profiles available. The VRS profiles are accessed from the system tray. iKAN Scan profiles are accessed from the iKAN Application.

The configuration and setting of these profiles is handled in a separate documents.


To begin a scan, click the Scan icon on the desktop.


The application connects the iKAN system for its configuration and also connects to the scanner. The system will display ‘Ready’ once all parts are connected.


There are 3 steps to scanning documents in the iKAN Application.
