ABBYY Real-Time Recognition SDK Adds Instant Livestreaming Video Data Capture
ABBYY, a global provider of intelligent capture solutions, has released the latest version of the ABBYY Real-Time Recognition Software Development Kit (RTR SDK) with added livestreaming video data capture functionality on iOS and Android mobile platforms. The Real-Time Recognition technology can text information from on-screen objects and automatically convert it into digital data on the mobile device.
Using the live video stream, the new RTR SDK is able to extract text and data in 63 languages from textures and objects set in natural scenes. According to the vendor, the technology is ideal for software developers that build customizable apps that allow users to collect information from documents, objects and complex textures. It works by pointing the smartphone camera to display the text on the preview screen, and then the data is automatically extracted and processed on the device.
Companies are facing the challenge of delivering data anywhere at any time, Bruce Orcutt, senior vice president of product marketing at ABBYY. The new point-and-capture technology speeds up data acquisition processes, reduces costs by facilitating customer onboarding, and increases customer satisfaction and loyalty by providing users with self-service capabilities, he added.
The new capabilities are aimed at a variety of enterprises and organizations, ranging from banks and insurance companies to logistics, healthcare and telecom, by helping to speed up complex registration processes, such as opening an account, applying for a mortgage or loan, or entering a payslip. Instead of filling in paper forms by hand, which takes time to process and is error-prone, customers can now instantly capture the required data using their mobile handsets. The information is then directly transferred to an online form or custom app for processing.
Additionally, the ABBYY Real-Time Recognition SDK provides the ability to capture codes on loyalty cards, recharge scratch cards and vouchers, or serial numbers on devices, and input the extracted data into the required fields in the app. Since no images are sent to the server or stored on the device, the ABBYY technology is also well-suited for processes that require compliance with security and privacy rules, the company says.
