CVISION Technologies, a leading provider of software to optimize the accessibility and processes associated with document capture, announced today the release of CVista PdfCompressor 5.0. PdfCompressor 5.0 distinguishes itself by providing the world's fastest and most accurate OCR available.

The new release also includes breakthrough improvements in file compression quality, OCR recognition accuracy, and compression processing speed.

PdfCompressor's OCR engine can process up to 20 pages per second (10 pages/core/second), a rate 20 times faster than competing products. CVISION's OCR can accelerate an entire workflow while creating a standard where all paper-based documents are searchable. In addition to high-speed OCR, the OCR engine contains settings to achieve the highest recognition rates possible. PdfCompressor's OCR has been tested to be more accurate than leading OCR engines. High accuracy recognition rates are achieved by leveraging advanced image processing techniques including: re-sampling, foreground/background separation, and auto-rotation.

CVista PdfCompressor 5.0 strengthens features of earlier releases, and adds new features to meet the expanding needs within document imaging. Version 5.0 contains enhanced compression; scanned documents are compressed up to 100x their original size while maintaining file quality. PdfCompressor 5.0 also converts 14 file formats including TIFF, JPEG, and PDF to either PDF or PDF/A for long-term archiving.

"Version 5.0 is unique to all other document capture solutions in its ability to OCR and compress documents in real-time speed. PdfCompressor can process up to 20 pages per second; this is 20 times faster than the other leading products." said Ethan Agai, Vice President at CVISION " Being able to accurately OCR and compress documents instantly will enable organizations to accelerate their entire workflow, and create a standard where all captured documents are text-searchable, compressed and converted to PDF files. By increasing processing speed, paper-based information can be accessed immediately. The real-time OCR mode can keep up with any capture device, such as MFPs, while the highly accurate mode is useful for automated data extraction workflows that require high precision."
