Automated Capture Feature Simplifies User Experience and Helps to Ensure the Capture of a High Quality and In-Focus Image
A2iA, an award-winning developer of software for the worldwide data capture, document processing, and payment systems markets, announced recently that it has been granted Patent No. 9,160,946 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The patent covers automated capture features in A2iA’s on-device, offline mobile data capture and image analysis software.
Released earlier this year, A2iA Mobility’s Auto-Locate feature automatically detects a document, check or ID card within a video stream and intelligently locates and captures the image when it is found in focus. Simplifying the user experience by allowing for the quick capture of documents without having to touch the shutter button of the camera, there is no bounding-box or pre-defined capture zone required.
The user simply holds the mobile device over the document and ensures the corners are shown on the screen of the phone or the tablet. Regardless of its orientation, A2iA Mobility automatically detects the edges, captures the image, and performs offline image correction and data extraction – directly on the device.
A2iA Mobility, a patented SDK, supports real-time business operations for consumers, corporations, and remote agents alike by enabling offline processing without cellular service or Wi-Fi. These client-side features power next-generation mobile apps and cross channel applications that facilitate self-service automation in the United States, Canada and abroad. Available for integration into both Android and iOS apps, software developers can customize the interface and experience for their specific users.
A2iA, Artificial Intelligence and Image Analysis, is the worldwide leading developer of handwritten and machine printed text recognition, information extraction and intelligent document classification toolkits. By enhancing solutions from systems integrators and independent software vendors, A2iA allows complex and cursive data from all forms, documents and checks including unstructured handwritten letters, to become part of a structured database, making it searchable and reportable, with the same level of flexibility of printed or digital data. A2iA has been improving business process automation and delivering a visible ROI for over 24 years. For more information, visit www.a2ia.com
