Kirtas authors new book-scanning software

Book digitization vendor Kirtas Technologies announced today the Kirtas BookScan Editor Software Suite.

The latest software offerings from Kirtas include the newest iteration of BookScan Editor. The 3.0 version has upgrades like metadata capture; fully automated segmentation, cropping, clamp removal and cleanup outside of text block; super-batch mode for unattended multi-book processing with simultaneous scanning and post processing; and image recall to for image comparison.

Also in the suite is JPEG 2000, a hardware solution that accelerates the compression time and delivers images up to six times faster than most software, and the Arabic OCR Manager, which can identify both Arabic and English characters on the same page and distinguish between 26 Arabic true type fonts for scanning large amounts of documents.
