This week in PDF: Server-based PDF conversion and OCR solution announced

November 06, 2008


This week in PDF has seen the release of a server-based Optical Character Recognition (OCR) solution and a pair of products updated by Dalim Software.

First up, CVISION Technologies has announced the release of Maestro Recognition Server. Maestro is a server-based PDF conversion and OCR solution providing automated, batch processing OCR. Delivered from a centralized server, Maestro converts scanned documents into text-searchable PDF files. Users can configure Maestro for speed, isolate specific regions to OCR, and select document orientation. In addition, Maestro automates the OCR process with watch folder capabilities through which users can automatically process multiple folders. For more information, visit the official CVISION website.

In update news, Dalim Software updated a pair of products, debuting the new versions at Graph Expo 2008. New to version DALiM MiSTRAL 3.0, Dalim's production automation and project management/job tracking system, is Publisher’s Production Flatplan. The addition is aimed at non-technical users to allow faster page approvals. MiSTRAL 3.0 shows true PDF images of complete pages that have been produced through a production workflow.

Dalim's other update was made to its stand-alone SWOP Certified monitor-based proofing application running under the Macintosh OS X operating system. DALiM DiALOGUE 3.0 provides remote and collaborative viewing and soft proofing of high-resolution files (PDF, PostScript and TIFF-IT, among others) via the Internet. The latest version features text extraction, the ability to highlight text when viewing a proof on a monitor, and cutting and pasting that text with edits into a comment. A key innovation is the product's ability to display text as vector components. This saves a reviewer time, because the person does not have to retype copy that requires changes.
