Stalker Software Announces an Update and a free Demo of their popular
MILL VALLEY, CA – July 27th, 1998 – Stalker Software Inc., has created an
unique scanner sharing software, SCSIShare (v1.6.1) which allows the
sharing of a scanner across the network. Up until today there was no demo
SCSIShare was released in September of 1994 and has grown in popularity
both in the graphic industry and journal departments of educational
facilities worldwide. As an office solution SCSIShare allows a scanner to
become “networkable” freeing the need for a dedicated scan station. This
allows the individual in the office with the scanner to remain free from
interruption from someone needing to use his/her work station to scan.
SCSIShare is a server/client application using the control panel to link
the scanner work station to the other remote stations on the network. By
creating “virtual” devices on the client machines, SCSIShare allows
scanning software to access shared scanners as if they were directly
connected to the client computer.
SCSIShare works with most name brand scanners that supports the SCSI
interface. The product allows connections across multiple AppleTalk zones
at transfer rates up to 10MB/sec, depending on network media and traffic.
It runs in the background and provides password protection.
ScanShare is Stalker’s other popular scanner sharing software which has had
its own demo version since its release in 1993. ScanShare works with any
scanner that supports the Apple Scanner Interface (Apple scanners), but at
the Chooser level.
Both applications cost $89.00 for a 10 user license and are available
directly from Stalkers web and ftp servers and from most Macintosh Mail
