Raleigh, NC – November 28, 2017 – The TWAIN Working Group (TWG), a not-for-profit organization designed to provide and foster a universal public standard which links applications and image acquisition devices, today announced the addition of HazyBits as an Associate member of the TWAIN Working Group. HazyBits, a developer of carefully designed APIs that provide infrastructure for developers of modern applications to process huge amounts of data, has joined to make development contributions to TWAIN Cloud, a component of the new TWAIN Direct™ specification.
TWAIN Direct is the first zero-footprint, mobile-ready version of TWAIN’s royalty-free open standard protocol. It expedites development of applications accessing scanners, without requiring vendor-specific drivers. TWAIN Direct supports direct network communication between desktop or mobile applications and scanning devices, and addresses the need for something simple and direct that speeds along application development and results in a feature-rich end user experience.
Said Dmitry Kolomiets, President at HazyBits, “We are excited to be a new Associate Member of the TWAIN Working Group. This standard is very important to the imaging industry, and it is clear that the TWAIN Working Group is doing what it should to move the standard in to the future with TWAIN Direct. Our group can add great value in the cloud portion of the specification development, to include building important infrastructure that will be open source based on our years of experience.”
“HazyBits is a great fit for membership and an important piece of the development puzzle for TWAIN Cloud, part of our TWAIN Direct specification,” says Jon Harju, Chair of the TWAIN Working Group and CTO at Visioneer Inc. “Dmitry Kolomiets, President of HazyBits, has been making contributions to the group for some time with his cloud expertise under another member company. We are very happy to add his new company as an Associate Member of the group, and look forward to working with him into the future.”
