TopOCR Reader   Available this Summer!

TopOCR Reader is a second generation Document Camera that stands less than 10 inches tall, weighs less than a pound and takes up about as much desk space as a coffee cup. Despite its small size, it can scan a full A4 or Letter sized document in less than a second!

TopOCR Reader doesn't require ANY manual camera adjustment! Instead, the camera is automatically adjusted to the ambient lighting by the camera's integrated image procesing hardware. This automatic control system gets rid of all of the guesswork it normally takes for using a camera for document scanning!

In addition to real-time image correction, the image processing hardware also performs MJPEG streaming compression for high speed, lag-free video transfer. When combined with TopOCR's Document Camera Image Preview and Capture Dialog this high frame rate video transfer makes document positioning a snap!

Simple Rugged Hardware

TopOCR Reader is built to be tough and durable, so you can easily fold it and toss it in your gym bag and take it with you without any worries, and since it's powered directly through a USB port, you also never have to worry about batteries or how to transfer images to your PC!

TopOCR Reader's second generation design provides more advanced optics with a shorter focal length that makes TopOCR Reader 50% smaller and lighter than first generation document cameras. The low distortion optics combined with the latest low noise CMOS image sensor produces high quality images with enhanced sharpness and a large depth of field with no distortion or focus issues.

TopOCR Reader also includes a built-in USB powered LED lamp for low light environments with a simple easy to use touch control located on top of the camera.

Combined with Advanced Software

TopOCR Reader is the ONLY document camera that is powered by TopOCR, proven to be the most accurate OCR software for Document Cameras. TopOCR combines sophisticated real-time image processing with three specialized OCR Engines together with an easy to use Image Editor and Word Processor/Spell Checker. It also provides a single-click Real-Time Document Camera Image Preview and Capture Dialog that makes document positioning a snap! With TopOCR you never have to worry if your documents are placed upside down or sideways. It automatically transforms images to the correct text reading orientation for every scan. TopOCR's OCR text output can be saved in your choice of PDF/HTML/TXT/RTF file formats and it also has a multilingual Text To Speech System allowing you to convert your documents into high quality speech and save them as MP3 files.

Automatic Document Camera Image Dewarping with Neural Warp

TopOCR's Neural Warp is a revolutionary new convolutional neural network architecture that can analyze a document's page layout and can correct for page curvature and other geometric image distortions.

Accessible User Interface for Low Vision and Blind Users

For those who have difficulty reading printed material, TopOCR has a powerful, easy to use, multi-lingual Accessible OCR User Interface. This interface provides a very easy to learn Visually Accessible User Interface for Document Cameras.

20 MP Super Resolution Image Capture

TopOCR Reader supports a Super Resolution image capture mode that uses Multi-Frame Super Resolution to create a high resolution 20 MP 450 DPI image!

Why not use a Digital Camera or Smartphone?

When used for document image reading, handheld digital cameras or smartphones will often show a characteristic motion-blur casued by a slight shaking of the camera while the camera's shutter is open. This effect is even more pronounced at lower shutter speeds required in low light settings. TopOCR Reader's integrated camera stand with its weighted base adds mechanical stability to the camera to completely eliminate camera motion-blur. The integrated camera stand also guarantees that the camera is always perpendicular to the document to be read as well as at the correct height above the document. This approach completely eliminates image distortion and focus issues.

This also allows you to use your hands for other things besides holding a camera! With TopOCR Reader you can use your hands to hold documents flat for better image capture and they can be automatically cropped from the image along with the background.
