    HOPKINTON, Mass - July 26, 2012 -

    EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced strong adoption of its EMC Captiva Cloud Toolkit. The toolkit transforms web-based scanning by providing a simple way for developers to add scanning functionality to web applications, enabling scanning from all document scanners and multifunction peripherals (MFP) that support the ISIS and TWAIN standards.

    Since its release at the end of 2011, hardware manufacturers and software developers are already leveraging EMC Captiva Cloud Toolkit. Major scanner and MFP manufacturers, including Avision, Brother, Canon, Epson, Fujitsu, HP, Kodak, Panasonic, Plustek and Visioneer, are shipping scanners supporting these new scan-enabled web applications.

    The Captiva Cloud Toolkit provides broad support for web browsers and web development platforms, significantly reducing the barriers to acquiring physical documents into web- or cloud-based applications and business processes. Web-based business applications that utilize the toolkit work with all standard web browser platforms, including Windows Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, and require no additional software to run, such as ActiveX or other browser plug-ins. With Captiva Cloud Toolkit, developers can quickly create working, scan-enabled, web-based business applications compatible with existing corporate web browsers and development environments, including HTML5, Microsoft Silverlight, JavaScript, and Adobe Flash.
