Matrox Imaging OCR technology
SureDotOCR is designed to overcome the challenges of using inkjet-printed, dot-matrix text in vision inspection applications, particularly on packaging lines in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and health care sectors. The product is available as an add-on tool to Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) machine vision software. The software handles nonuniform dot spacing; deformed, skewed and touching characters; rotated text strings; varying contrast; uneven backgrounds; and other anomalies. It also accepts grammar rules such as letter-only, digit-only, specific letters, specific digits, specific punctuation marks and other designations at each character position. It lets users define the expected dot-matrix character font but also includes predefined fonts.
