Network-Ready Check Scanner With Embedded API

SmartSource® Expert Elite

The SmartSource Expert Elite represents the state of the art in network-ready check scanning devices, backed by Digital Check’s decades of experience working with virtual branch environments. As an “embedded” network device, it contains a processor and API inside the scanner itself for maximum ease of use. This multi-feed check scanner delivers higher speeds and higher capacity for high-volume teller and RDC capture environments.

Based on the popular SmartSource Elite series of check scanners, the Expert Elite includes all the new features of the enhanced Elite product line.

Quality Construction

Operating System Independent with a Built-In API

The critical intelligence to drive and control the SmartSource Expert Elite is all contained within the device itself, making it simple to operate on nearly any kind of network environment. Digital Check’s SecureLink API uses a streamlined set of commands designed for network protocols, so that the scanner can be controlled by nearly any device that can run a web browser. It doesn’t matter whether you’re using a Windows PC, an Android tablet, or a virtual environment with “thin-client” workstations — the Expert Elite will run smoothly and independently, regardless of your local network configuration. It can be located and addressed easily by all approved devices. Most of the bulk-processing type branch scanners of the past have gone out of production, with parts and service becoming harder to find. The SmartSource Professional has the versatility to take on the high-volume batch scanning and sorting those machines used to do — but with size, cost, and complexity closer to a teller scanner. The Professional’s easy-maintenance design allows easy access to all replaceable components, and quick cleaning with no removal of the external covers. SmartSource scanners use the same “waffle” cleaning cards as the TellerScan product line, to remove the maximum amount of dirt and dust while cleaning hard-to-reach areas inside the scanner track. The SmartSource Professional’s Inkjet endorser can print up to four lines on the back of a cheque or money order, capturing nearly any information you need to convey.

Reduces Strain on Your Network Bandwidth

It might not be the most obvious issue, but even a single cheque scanner running at full speed can put serious bandwidth pressure on a virtual environment. Raw uncompressed cheque images can be 2-3 MB each — so a device scanning 200 documents per minute can displace half a gigabyte of data per minute. If the raw images are being sent straight out to the server before processing, that’s enough data to nearly saturate a 100 Mbps broadband connection. 

The Expert Elite handles all image processing, cleanup, MICR processing, and image compression with its onboard processor, reducing the file sizes by as much as 99%. Your scanners can operate faster, and without causing a network bottleneck.

600 dpi Front-Feed ID Card Capture

As technology evolves, more and more banks are phasing out the standard magstripe “swipe” reading for ID cards and using the full scanned images of IDs instead. This opens up a whole new realm of possibilities — from security tests, to auto-populating data, to customer recognition and KYC compliance initiatives.

No matter how you’re using ID card images, chances are you already have a cheque scanner at the teller window, so using it to capture IDs also is a win-win situation. We’ve made that even easier with a new front-facing ID card track built in to every SmartSource Elite and Expert Elite series scanner.

Many of the smaller machine-readable features on ID cards — such as bar codes and microprinting — need a high-resolution image, so we’ve upgraded the image sensors on the Elite series to capture in 600 dpi full colour.

Automatic Cleaning Mode

New Elite series scanners — including the network-enabled Expert Elite — come with an automatic cleaning mode to help you with the maintenance of your device.

Even better, if you already own an older Expert Elite scanner, you can still enable the new cleaning mode through a firmware update.
