Metadata is structured information that describes, locates, or makes it easier to retrieve, or manage a piece of information (i.e. an electronic document). Metadata can be described as “information about information.”
Metascan working with a Toshiba Multifunction Product (MFP) enables you to scan hard copy documents into your own document storage application, indexing them at the point of scanning rather than later, with the control panel of the device prompting for the relevant information. The scanned document (image file), along with the associated metadata file can be easily retrieved from your document storage application using the index information (metadata) that was input at the time of scanning as search criteria.
