The TWAIN Working Group, established in 1992, is a not-for-profit association of industry leaders who have gathered to create a standard that benefits the imaging industry as a whole. TWAIN’s purpose is to provide and foster a universal public standard which links applications and image acquisition devices. The ongoing mission of this organization is to continue to enhance the standard to accommodate future technologies.
TWAIN generates multiple opportunities for application developers and users to access information and broaden the standard; through a developer’s forum (twainforum.org), main website (twain.org), Wikipedia page and online self-certification process. Current members of the TWAIN Working Group include Panasonic Corporation, ExactCODE GmbH, Fujitsu Computer Products of America Inc., InoTec GmbH Organisationssyteme, Kodak Alaris, LEAD Technologies, Inc., P3iD Technologies, Inc., Atalasoft, Microtek, Inc., Dynamsoft, Epson America, Inc., PDF Association, HazyBits and Hewlett Packard.
