PDF OCR Pro features

Converts more than 100 file formats to PDF/OCR

The Professional Edition now supports more than 100 files formats, including JPEG, JPEG2000 and JBIG2 compression schemes, SVG and raster images formats like TIFF and DICOM, as well as a wide range of RAW camera formats.
There is no need to convert documents and images to PDF before performing OCR anymore, which is a very significant gain of time for companies.

Recognizes more than 60 languages

The Free Edition can recognize English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. With the Pro Edition, there are now more than 60 languages that can be processed and accurately read by the OCR engine, making PDF OCR Pro a very comprehensive tool that can be used on most documents.

Multithreading support

The multithreading process can be applied on both multipage documents and multiple documents. The number of threads depends on the power of the machine where PDF OCR is installed. PDF OCR automatically applies the correct number of threads without any intervention of the user. Productivity is dramatically enhanced with multithreading and hundreds of pages can be processed at once.

Command Line Interface Support

The command-line interface is the fastest way to operate a software and it uses much less memory. Also it does not require Windows to run.
PDF OCR pro can be automated with command lines and can be fully integrated in organizations processes.

PDF OCR Pro for Desktop and Server

The professional edition is distributed in two versions: PDF OCR Pro for Desktop (Windows starting with XP SP3) and PDF OCR Pro for Server (Windows server 2003 minimum). The server edition has been developed to be integrated in production lines.
