OCR (Optical Character Recognition) is the technology that extract text from images. You send a picture to the OCR engine that splits it into smaller parts (lines) and then compares the images to a list of potential characters. The engine returns a list of words or characters and the position of them on the original image.
We developed specific OCR engines dedicated for special recognition:
BCR (Business Card Recognition) is the specific usage of OCR to read Business Cards. The OCR engine pre-process the image to recognize and locate the information on the bizcard. The information that can be extract is:
with our Image processing SDK, you can prepare your image for a better OCR. By removing some background noises, automatically detect the edge of the document (that allow document orientation and auto-croping), apply filters (GreyScale or Black&White) and image compression, your document images will provide a better recognition accuracy rate and speed.
Even if our Image Processing SDK is tuned to enhance the recognition result for document images (invoices, business cards and so on), you can use it for entire different cases. Let it be enhancement of travel or personal pictures, this will allow you to share sharper images.
With our Instant Messenger SDKs, you can create your communication tools for dedicated messenger mobile application and PC software. You can control where your corporate data are going without relying on public or closed source solution.
