Document Image Processing Technology
Given the widespread use of computer systems, the documents used in office work today are increasingly being digitized. There is also a growing trend of scanning paper documents with scanners or multifunction devices and using these scanned documents. However, scanned documents are merely images composed of multiple dots (pixels) and can only be used for such purposes as browsing. Fuji Xerox is developing document processing technology that can extract and utilize data, information, and constituent elements contained in images through image correction, analysis, and recognition.
