Existing OCR solutions show limits with distorted or degraded supports and require an extra step of binarization that is resources-consuming. OCR PREPROCESSING is a lightning-fast algorithm dedicated to image binarization, which was specifically developed by the LSIS laboratory to address OCR requirements. OCR PREPROCESSING allows fast document image binarization pre-treatment and runs low on few resources.
OCR PREPROCESSING was awarded at multiple International Document Image Binarization Contests: ICFHR 2010 (1st), H-DIBCO 2010 (3rd), DIBCO 2011 (1st) and DIBCO 2013 (2nd).
