STOIK Helps Mobile Developers Automate Paperless Workflow

  (August 29, 2011)

Mocow, Russia (PRWEB) August 29, 2011

The new release adds the ability automatically correct geometric and 3D perspective distortions. These distortions are commonly introduced by phone-camera users, e.g. trapezoid distortions resulting from the camera being held at an angle to the document being captured. The ability to automatically extract document area is improved with much highest accuracy, now allowing Document Image Enhancement SDK to extract document contents even if the image feature heterogeneous background or have low contrast between the text and background. In addition, the newly added customizable adaptive binarization technique consistently produces clean, clear and perfectly legible documents from noisy, shaded or low-contrast images taken in bad lighting conditions.

The product can be used on smartphones hardware in its fast mode, or off-load computation-intensive tasks onto an external server or cloud for even higher quality processing. A wide range of presets is available for common tasks (e.g. A4/letter, business card, receipt, ID card, etc.)

The SDK accommodates a wide range of shooting conditions, and corrects most common problems in document images such as bad lighting, insufficient contrast, difficult backgrounds, unwanted patterns, and many types of user errors. Geometric and 3D perspective distortion correction can be also performed completely automatically.

The mobile version offers lighter processing options in the fast mode. A wide range of presets help processing different types of documents and solving common tasks such as scanning an A4/letter size document, business card, receipt, ID, and so on.
