In a move intended to increase tracking and tracing efficiency, Matrox® Imaging announced a major update to its dot-matrix OCR tool — SureDotOCR™. The latest update brings with it optimizations that improve both reading speed and robustness.
In general, the updated SureDotOCR tool can now read two times faster than before, which translates to a speed of over 2000 ppm when using an Intel® Core™ i5-6500TE platform. In specific circumstances, read speeds have been increased by up to four times what was previously possible.
“Matrox SureDotOCR has been available for a little over one year and in that time has become a disruptive force in in the world of industrial OCR. SureDotOCR gives companies a tool which they can trust for tracking and tracing of the human-readable text produced by dot matrix printers—the most common printing technology in use today,” said Pierantonio Boriero, Director of Product Management, Matrox Imaging. “With the enhancements provided by this update, SureDotOCR will prove to be essential anywhere reading of dot-matrix text is required.”
Introducing the possibility to specify the expected italicization and strings angles of dot-matrix text, this update further boosts reading robustness and speed; major throughput advances for those looking to provide dependable tracking and tracing in food, beverage, pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors.
