About STOIK Document Image Enhancement SDK.
The many functions of STOIK Document Image Enhancement SDK help developers to quickly implement automated processing of document images. Developers will gain the ability to quickly release applications allowing users to prepare document images taken with scanners, digital cameras or camera phones for text recognition, and improve OCR quality by correcting common issues in full auto and semi-automatic modes.
Applications created with STOIK Document Image Enhancement SDK will offer their users the ability to save on printing and faxing costs by spending less ink outputting non-white backgrounds, ensuring smooth and economic migration to paperless workflow. Pre-processed document images are proven to be taken easier by OCR programs, resulting in significantly improved text recognition quality.
STOIK Document Image Enhancement SDK: Functionality at a Glance.
STOIK Document Image Enhancement SDK implements a wide range of image manipulation functions, including the ability to suppress digital noise, automatically correct distortion, rotation and exposure problems, clean text background and extract document area to make subsequent OCR job smoother and easier with enhanced recognition quality and fewer errors. Processed documents feature improved text legibility and enhanced visual appearance.
Storing, faxing and printing processed images gets more economical thanks to reduced file size and white background free of textured background, dots, lines and gradients. The SDK implements the ability to whiten complex backgrounds used on check images, ID cards and other documents, making document images look clean and the text appear more legible for human readers and OCR applications.
STOIK Document Image Enhancement SDK is immediately available in 32-bit and 64-bit editions, and supports current versions of Microsoft Windows, Apple iOS, and Symbian. A mobile edition is also available. A free evaluation version is available for download from the company’s Web site upon request.
