About

DigitEYE is a modern, compact and eco-friendly desk lamp and document scanner. This unobtrusive, yet powerful document scanner is powered by the latest state-of-the-art image processing and OCR technology for scanning, storage and management of paperless office.  

The inspiration came from first-hand experience over the years, as well those shared by my clients. We frequently found ourselves needing or wanting to sign, scan, email, preserve and file important business and personal documents. Scanning everything from client agreements, articles, business cards, expense reports, and utility bills took far too much time for it to be useful or efficient

From necessity comes the solution  

For many years I had a professional grade scanner on my desk. These desktop scanners range in cost from $500 (Fujitsu ScanSnap) to $1,200 (Kodak i1220). They require manually feeding paper while taking up valuable desktop space. They are hard to use at the best of times and with irregular-shape documents such as receipts and business cards. they are impossible. Even as someone who designs and builds scanners for a living, it would take me nearly 2 minutes to scan, save, and email something as simple as a 4 page contract.  

There must be a better way! DigitEYE was born

DigitEYE is a compact and extremely effective scanner that takes up less than 3 inches of desktop space. When on, it automatically scans documents placed on your desk. No technological knowledge needed, no clicking, no frustration. In less than 1 second, DigitEYE will scan, save and upload or send any document, book, or manuscript.

For the past 12 months WiseTREND’s strong technical team conceptualized, designed, prototyped and tested numerous automation options. Our company has 16 years of experience in document scanning and workflow automation. We employ a globally recognized expert team of 11 developers and several Ph.D researchers to create cutting-edge technology - a team that has won many awards in multiple fields. We worked with manufacturers to design and produce DigitEYE.

DigitEYE allows users to create workflow automations, so that when you scan a business card, our software knows automatically to store in in your contact folder. Workflow automation is the cutting edge of modern business and we update our software with new features every 2 weeks.

Many DigitEYE software features are unprecedented

DigitEYE uses advanced algorithms in real time to automatically detect documents. It will even issue visual and auditory alerts if a document is accidentally cut off.

 A key feature of DigitEYE is it’s ability to automatically detect any document placed on your desk, detect document’s borders, and properly and quickly scan the content.

DigitEYE can detect documents in any orientation AND it tracks multiple documents at once. All detected documents are automatically scanned, and archived with a single click.

Every document scanned with DigitEYE is automatically orientated correctly. Advanced background filters remove noise and unwanted shadows. All text is extracted using the world’s most accurate Optical Character Recognition (OCR). This text is used to create Searchable PDFs and users can select text lines can to be used in other applications.

DigitEYE goes beyond any other conventional scanner. It provides capabilities to record HD live videos and “scan” any other 3D objects that can be placed onto desk surface.

DigitEYE watches your desk in real time. This means that the surface of your desk and all objects on it can be projected to a conference room screen, shown in an online meeting, or shared with colleagues anywhere in the world.

DigitEYE comes pre-programmed with several popular Capture Profiles, a combination of steps and settings used at most home and office desks. Software provides easy capabilities to create additional Capture Profiles that can automate multiple settings and actions into a single button press.

Optionally, DigitEYE can automatically launch a number of user-configurable Post Actions after a scan, such as e-mail the scanned document to someone, upload to a cloud storage, or launch a custom script or a BAT file.

DigitEYE’s minimalist User Interface (UI) has been designed for optimal productivity. But, its also designed with total customization and user friendliness in mind. Select from over 35 theme colors and overwrite every keyboard shortcut available in the software to your most preferred key combinations.

 DigitEYE goes beyond one application. With close integration with Windows, DigitEYE expands Windows Clipboard into a powerful multi-item Clipboard Manager, capable of saving multiple entries. Save numerous data items within DigitEYE document or anywhere else on your PC. Plus, you have access to it all with a simple click onto DigitEYE taskbar Clipboard Manager. Even something ‘copied’ into Clipboard days ago!

DigitEYE is small, compact, lightweight, and makes a great travel companion. It has been field-tested in numerous settings and environments.

DigitEYE software is compatible with Microsoft Windows 7/8/10. Unfortunately, there are no plans to support Mac or Linux OS.

As of November, 2016 we have completed the first release of DigitEYE, but we are asking for your help to finish refining our product and to reach our full manufacturing goals. Our initial shipment consists of 150 units, but our first manufacturing goal is 5,000 units (achievable 1 month after the funding is received).  

We look forward to your feedback. If you find a feature you’d like to have, or a bug, please contact us. If you love the idea of DigitEYE and the way it works, please share with me. Keep up with us on social media and post, tweet, share your reviews and opinions.

But what is a DigitEYE PRO?

In addition to the on-going software development and upgrades, we will introduce a new model in the near future.  DigtiEYE PRO is scheduled for release in March, 2017. It is custom-designed for advanced home and office users. With the same features as DigitEYE, the PRO is designed for professionals focusing on large book scanning and wide-format document scanning, as well as working with engineering drawings and cartographers. Featuring a high-resolution 15 MP sensor-based camera DigitEYE PRO is capable of scanning A3 (over 12 in x 17 in) (two Letter pages side-by-side). This lamp hardware is made of sturdy aluminum for even the harshest environments. The desk lamp provides powerful lighting from a 1W LED. Powered by USB 3.0. Controlled by the same advanced DigitEYE document archiving software with several special automation features for large document scanning. MSRP $499.99. Kickstarter price $399.00.

Risks and challenges

As far as projects go, we have yet to face major roadblocks. The biggest hurdle was manufacturing the components. Since we have already received our alpha line, we worked out any kinks in the manufacturing and transportation logistics. But the two biggest challenges we currently face are achieving full production and completed development on the next versions of DigitEYE.

There are still major challenges ahead, and we hope to overcome every one of them with your support. One consideration that faces all enterprise ventures is competition. There are no apparent competitors focusing on specialized scanning and workflow automation projects.

As we plan on evolving DigitEYE as the technology evolves, there will be multiple iterations of the supporting software. This new software will require additional scientific research and creation of new algorithms not currently available on today's hardware for image and document processing. We look forward to solving this puzzle.

We look forward to your contributions in any shape or form.

Thank you in advance from the DigitEYE Team
