ABBYY announced their new real-time recognition SDK
ABBYY has announced the release of the new 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 is capable of instantly pulling text information from on-screen objects and automatically converting 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 even the most complex textures and objects set in natural scenes. The ‘point and capture’ 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, following which, the data is automatically extracted and processed on the device. Mobile apps powered by the technology will help enterprises enhance processes such as customer onboarding and motivate existing customers to use self-service technologies.

"One of the challenges companies face in today's business environment is the pressure to deliver data anywhere at any time. Our 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. Thanks to Real-Time Recognition SDK, manual data input will very soon be a relic of the past as more and more forward-thinking organizations embrace mobile recognition and instant data capture,” comments Bruce Orcutt, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing at ABBYY.

ABBYY Real-Time Recognition Software Development Kit features include:

  • Out-of-the-box capture of data from bank cards, IDs, driver’s licenses, and passports for a wide range of countries

  • Out-of-the-box capture of International Bank Account Number (IBAN) and information from Machine-Readable Zone (MRZ) of IDs

  • Support of custom data capture using regular expressions

  • Recognition and extraction of text of any color from any background or complex textures
