Intelliant OCR is an optical character recognition utility, able to convert scanned archives into a PDF format, including both image and text in a same standard container. Intelliant OCR increases the value of your intellectual capital, allowing you to best utilize your image documents with any search engine.
Its speed and ease of use, at an affordable price, turn Intelliant OCR into a serious contender among the main OCR professionnal solutions of the market.
•· Above all, it's a commandline application, which means that it can be very easily integrated in your existing document management system. As a demonstration, we provide configuration files allowing you to plug Intelliant OCR into Alfresco ECM "out of the box". For example, you will be able to define OCR transformations that you can use within basic content rules (for example, transform to PDF all TIFF images dropped into a specific folder).
•· The OCR engine is based on Tiger OCR and it's remarkably fast. Its brute processing capabilities are one of the most powerfull ones available today. This is necessary if you want to be able to make capital out of your voluminous existing image archives.
•· Intelliant OCR is also very light(the installator weighs only 5 Mb) and it doesn't require much of computer's resources
•· The recognition function makes quite a nice job for the main european languages.
•· Several text and image compression methods allow to enormously reduce the size of the documents.
•· Input images can be in all the flavours of the TIFF format, even already encapsulated in a PDF document.
•· Output documents can be in ASCII format, smart ASCII (tries to produce text as much like the original image as possible), RTF and PDF. You can specify all security options and properties (title, author, subject and keywords) in the version 1.4 of Adobe PDF format.
Intelliant OCR 1.1.0version beta has now been released.
There are no upgrade charges for anyone that purchased Intelliant OCR in the last 12 months and if you purchased prior to that you still get a 50 percent reduction. This version does not have any new features, but we think you will appreciate its dramatic enhancements:
•· Above all, the OCR engine has been entirely rewritten and simplified, and it is a lot more stable, with less errors, especially on huge documents. The underlying library, Tiger OCR, is very powerful but it tended to crash on some complicated images. Fortunately we found ways to work around this problem, and we start to see the fruit of this labour.
•· Support of color and gray scale images has been enhanced. Now Intelliant OCR can process in input all the flavors of the TIFF format. If you still have a problem, please send us some sample files.
•· The positioning of words on the pages is more precise.
•· Performances seem better as we introduced a dose of multithreading into the application.
