Prime Recognition Announces PrimeOCR Version 4.2

Woodinville, WA (PRWEB) January 22, 2006

Prime Recognition releases PrimeOCR version 4.2 improving recognition speed, faster reading of PDF files and support for barcode recognition.

New features in PrimeOCR version 4.2 include:

+ Faster Reading of PDF Image Files – PDF image files can be read 20 times faster then the previous version. Faster processing of PDF input files contributes to industry leading OCR speed of PDF image files.

+ Retaining PDF File Information – While processing PDF files, PrimeOCR can retain bookmarks, initial view mode and document description from the PDF input file and copy the information into the output PDF file.

+ Skip PDF Files with Text – Many repositories include PDF files that already include searchable text. PrimeOCR has an option to skip these files during processing. Skipping PDF files with text decreases overall processing time of the repository while retaining original text for improved search and retrieval.

+ Faster Recognition Speed – Enhancements have been made to PrimeOCR to improve support for multi-CPU PCs including multi-core CPUs.

+ Convert Single Page Input to Multi-Page Output – The PrimeOCR Job Server can now combine the results from several input files into one multi-page output file.

+ Barcode Recognition – Version 4.2 includes the ability of PrimeOCR to recognize linear barcodes during OCR.

+ Unicode Output ASCII Output – Support for Unicode output for CJK (Asian languages) recognition in ASCII format (adds to existing support of PDF and PRO output formats).

+ Support for LZW Compressed Images – Images compressed with LZW compression can now be read and processed by PrimeOCR.

Improved OCR Accuracy through Voting Technology

Developed for the production OCR marketplace, PrimeOCR is an omnifont Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 Server based software OCR engine and Application Programming Interface (API) toolkit that uses a combination of proprietary Voting algorithms and technology licensed from the best retail OCR vendors.

PrimeOCR is able to reduce OCR errors by an average of 65-82% over the best conventional OCR products while providing much cleaner data by implementing “Voting” technology. Since manual error correction can account for over 50% of an imaging system cost, by lowering error rates, PrimeOCR can reduce annual operating costs by 35%.

Designed around a fault tolerant architecture, PrimeOCR provides the production OCR marketplace with a reliable OCR processing solution that generates cleaner results than conventional OCR systems.

PrimeOCR has won a number of awards, including two “Product of the Year” awards from Imaging Magazine, and a “Top 10 of AIIM.”
