ANN ARBOR (WWJ) — NovoDynamics Inc. this week introduced version 1.1 of its NovoImage+ automated image enhancement software.

New in NovoImage+ 1.1 is the ability to handle multi-page documents, eliminating the need to re-collate files after optimizing pages for efficient processing. It also includes image inversion, which automatically converts microfilm negatives into positive images to prepare them for optical character recognition.

“NovoImage+ is an indispensable productivity booster,” says Art Nicholas, NovoImage vice president of global sales and a document capture industry veteran. “For organizations glutted with paper, as well as the service bureaus that support them, every step of manual intervention that can be eliminated from the document capture process saves time and money and frees workers for other tasks.”

Added NovoImage CEO David Rock: “The image inversion feature now extends the capabilities of NovoImage+ to handle microfilm more efficiently. As we continue to add new image enhancement automation tools, service bureaus using NovoImage+ software can increase their value proposition to customers by offering economical solutions for handling more diverse document image types.”

NovoDynamics says NovoImage+ software automatically cleans and enhances scanned and faxed images to improve the performance and productivity of document capture, including OCR, data extraction, document classification and other document management applications. It eliminates the need for labor intensive manual intervention to repair the images of damaged documents or degraded reproductions that impede downstream processing.

Device agnostic, NovoImage+ optimizes document images from virtually any scanner, as well as MFPs, fax devices and digitized microfilm. NovoImage+ streamlines image enhancement workflow by batch processing document images from multiple devices and routing them to and from the image enhancement environment.

NovoImage+ can also significantly reduce the size of document image files to lower costs associated with storage and archiving.
