Read smart: Feature-based OCR module added to Matrox Imaging Library

Matrox VITE : 04 May, 2004  (New Product)
Feature-based optical character recognition is a powerful tool for applications that require character reading or verification. 'Feature-based OCR is extremely robust tool, reading character strings at any scale factor in both x and y, including different aspect ratios, allowing it to tolerate some perspective distortion ' says Stephane Baldo, MIL Processing Software Leader. 'Feature-based OCR is powerful enough to read strings in poor or non-uniform lighting conditions, and automatically locates the string, even if it is rotated.'
At the Vision Show East show in Boston, Matrox Imaging announced the addition of a new module to its award-winning software development toolkit for machine vision, Matrox Imaging Library. This high-level programming library offers an extensive set of optimized functions for image capture, processing, analysis, display and archiving.

Feature-based optical character recognition is a powerful tool for applications that require character reading or verification. 'Feature-based OCR is extremely robust tool, reading character strings at any scale factor in both x and y, including different aspect ratios, allowing it to tolerate some perspective distortion ' says Stephane Baldo, MIL Processing Software Leader. 'Feature-based OCR is powerful enough to read strings in poor or non-uniform lighting conditions, and automatically locates the string, even if it is rotated.'

Feature-based OCR is ideal for applications where the location of the string and font are unpredictable, such as license plate reading. The module includes a universal font which can be used in simple applications, bypassing font training altogether, and since MIL's feature-based OCR module supports reading multiple fonts simultaneously, additional fonts and/or characters can be used in conjunction with the universal font.
