THE CORE SYSTEM
THE OCR (OPTICAL CHARACTER RECOGNITION) SERVER - responsible for reading and converting the printed information within a scanned document into text that can be indexed along with the image, or optionally stored as a separate file in addition to the image for editing. Using Zone Templates the OCR server will selectively read, extract, and populate specified meta data or profile fields in the documents associated database record. This feature is helpful in automating the process of indexing scanned documents and extracting key data that can be quickly displayed in the document profile without necessarily having to open the document and manually searching the image. All extracted OCR information is then passed on to the index server for processing and made available for overall document content searching.
