ANN ARBOR, MI--(Marketwire - February 16, 2010) - NovoDynamics®, Inc., a recognized leader in providing advanced information capture and analysis solutions, today announced that VERUS™, the company's advanced global language optical character recognition (OCR) solution, is the recipient of the 2010 Kinetic Process Innovation Award for Data Capture. This year's awards, sponsored by High Tech Views, an online publication that spotlights top tier technology, are presented to companies that demonstrate excellence in advanced information technology.
NovoDynamics' VERUS™ was selected by Yale University to support Project AMEEL (Arabic and Middle Eastern Electronic Library), a project whose goal is to develop a scholarly web-based portal for studying the Middle East's history, culture, development and contemporary face. Content for the portal is being captured from digitized Middle Eastern language documents using NovoDynamics' VERUS™ OCR software. VERUS™ automatically recognizes the Middle Eastern language on each document, removes any noise or artifacts on the page and then converts the page's printed text into computer text. Once VERUS™ extracts the text from a document, its content can be searched, retrieved and displayed via a web-based portal. With NovoDynamics' innovative technology for extracting Middle Eastern language information from complex and degraded documents, the Yale team has been able to retrieve information that has never been accessible in the past.
"We are always looking for unique applications and innovative technology," said Drew Barrows, deputy editor of High Tech Views. "Project AMEEL is truly an intriguing application of NovoDynamics' advanced OCR technology that is not only providing an efficient data capture solution, but is also contributing greatly to the understanding of the Middle East."
