VueScan 8.6.58 Adds Support for New Canon Scanners

Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, has released its latest version 8.6.58 – with support for 8 recently announced Canon scanners. This brings the total number of supported scanners to over 1550. VueScan also adds support for using multi-core processors to increase scan speed.

“Canon has produced some excellent multi-function scanners over the last few years. We have been watching their growth in popularity as more and more of our customers use VueScan with them, in particular for document scanning. The document scanning business is growing rapidly, which is one of the reasons we recently released searchable PDF support “ says Ed Hamrick, President of Hamrick Software.

“We added support for 5 new Canon multi-function scanners – MP280, MP495, MG5100, MG5200, MG6100 and MG8100. We also added support for two new scanners from the popular LiDE scanner series – LiDE 110 and LiDE 220. We have many customers who love using VueScan with Canon scanners, so we always try to quickly support all the latest Canon scanners, along with older Canon scanners.”

“We’ve been looking for ways to improve scan speed - and this latest version is a big improvement in speed and responsiveness. Because many people have multi-core computers, we use parallel programming to make scanning as fast as is physically possible. Our customer base is wide ranging - photographers, companies and home users – but everyone will notice the improvement in performance.” says Ed Hamrick.
