VRS and Capture Profiles Explained
​How Capture, Scanning, and VRS Profiles Work 

This diagram shows how the VRS, Capture, and Scanning profiles work with one another.

1. The scanner will directly interact with the scanning profile and the VRS profile.

2. The VRS profile WILL NOT communicate with the scanning profile. Therefore the VRS profiles
need to be set independently of the scanning profiles.

3. The Scanning profile will communicate with the capture profile and vise virsa. 

​4. ​​​​The Capture profile will directly communicate with ImageNow.

Why You Need to Set the VRS Profile 

The VRS profile needs to be set independently of the scanning profile used in ImageNow, The settings that are held in the VRS profile will raise the quality of the scan because they are configured to work properly with a specific capture profile. Without the VRS profile set, there is more room for error with the quality of the scan.
