RemoteScan Universal

Network document scanner for VDI and TS/RDSH users

Easily scan directly from any ISIS, TWAIN or WIA compliant desktop or network scanner into any hosted software that requires an ISIS driver.

RemoteScan™ Universal is the network scanner software solution that lets you scan directly from a TWAIN- or WIA-compliant desktop or network scanner to any hosted software that requires an ISIS driver. You can access scanners connected directly to client workstations running on vWorkspace, Terminal Server/Remote Desktop Session Host, VMware or Citrix servers--without compromising network security or establishing shared folders or directories. This network document scanner software also provides you with stable and seamless image acquisition in hosted environments, without having to worry about server boots. You can share a single scanner or imaging device much like a printer over a LAN, WAN, or IP network.


  • Support for all scanners –  Software on the server will detect individual desktop scanners at remote locations as if they are locally attached, allowing you to share any number of desktop scanners on a network in vWorkspace, TS/RDSH, Citrix or VMware environments.
  • TWAIN and WIA support – Supports all TWAIN- and WIA-compliant desktop scanners and imaging devices, including sheet feeder scanners high-end scanners, card scanners, ‘all-in-one’ devices, web cams, flatbed scanners, and digital cameras.
