FEBRUARY 5, 2009--VisionGauge OnLine optical character recognition systems/optical character verification systems (OCR/OCV) automatically locate and read text, verify that the text matches the expected character string, compute results statistics, export and exchange results, and produce reports. The systems include adapted, low-distortion optics and programmable, computer-controlled illumination. The VisionGauge OnLine toolset is included to automatically clean up the image before carrying out the character recognition operation, for improved results in cases of contamination or background noise. A proprietary "character splitting" algorithm deals with print imperfections and smears. The configurable system is "user-trainable" and supports user-supplied character and symbol libraries.

PRESS RELEASE

Optical Character Recognition & Verification Systems
(OCR / OCV Systems)

VisionGauge OnLine Optical Character Recognition Systems / Optical Character Verification Systems are able to automatically locate and read text, verify that the text matches the expected character string, compute results statistics, export & exchange the results, produce reports.

They include adapted, low distortion optics & programmable, computer-controlled illumination, for repeatability of results. Also included is the entire VisionGauge OnLine toolset which is available to automatically cleanup the image before carrying out the character recognition operation which improves results in cases where there's contamination or background noise.

VisionGauge OnLine's automated OCR / OCV tool includes an advanced, proprietary "character splitting" algorithm to deal with print imperfections, smears, etc. It's also "user-trainable" and supports user-supplied character & symbol libraries.

Multi configurations of VisionGauge OnLine Optical Character Recognition / Optical Character Verification Systems are available. We can configure a system to meet your specific requirements!
