New automated image enhancement software increases speed, accuracy of document capture
ANN ARBOR--NovoDynamics, Inc., a leading developer of advanced pattern recognition and analytics technologies, today announced the availability of NovoImage+ automated image enhancement software version 1.1. NovoImage+ 1.1 handles multi-page documents, eliminating the need to re-collate files after optimizing pages for efficient processing. It also includes image inversion, which automatically converts microfilm negatives into positive images to prepare them for optical character recognition (OCR).
"The time saved using an automatic document feeder (ADF) on an MFP may be lost if a multi-page document needs to be reconstructed after individual pages have been remediated," commented David Rock, President and CEO of NovoDynamics. "NovoImage+ 1.1 now eliminates this lost productivity by not only optimizing scanned or faxed pages but also automatically recompiling them into complete document files." "NovoImage+ is an indispensable productivity booster," says Art Nicholas, Vice President, Global Sales and document capture industry veteran. "For organizations glutted with paper, as well as the service bureaus that support them, every step of manual intervention that can be eliminated from the document capture process saves time and money and frees workers for other tasks. With NovoImage+ running in the background, MFP operators don't need to be trained to use the software — no additional steps are required at the MFP control panel. And NovoImage+ Professional Edition allows organizations with distributed document entry points to purchase one software license to support all the various devices on the network, lowering costs and making implementation easy via a single server."
"The image inversion feature now extends the capabilities of NovoImage+ to handle microfilm more efficiently," adds David Rock. "As we continue to add new image enhancement automation tools, service bureaus using NovoImage+ software can increase their value proposition to customers by offering economical solutions for handling more diverse document image types."
