VANCOUVER – Jan. 22, 2018 – Dynamsoft has introduced a software development kit for iOS app developers to add enterprise-grade document scanning capabilities by easily embedding a mobile capture component in hours or days rather than spending months to build it. The SDK boasts several built-in capabilities such as, automatic document border detection and artifact reductions. The feature set provided makes the SDK ideal for enterprise-grade document management application managers that want to enable document capture from mobile devices.
The new Dynamsoft Camera SDK for iOS consists of a programming API for document and image capture from iOS cameras, whether from a snapshot or a video stream. It lets users capture documents using an iPhone with desktop-scanner quality. This makes it ideal to capture mission-critical documents such as contracts and forms, ID cards or driver’s licenses, passports, receipts, presentations, and more.
The SDK provides a variety of built-in features to process captured documents. Automatic border detection finds the boundary of a document during a video sequence. This ensures accurate captures of the complete document by avoiding document cut-offs. It also provides trimming by extracting the document from a cluttered or clean background. This includes perspective distortion (trapezoid) correction. Image enhancements include the cleanup of most noise, shadows, distortions and other photo artifacts. In addition, users can be given image processing options for rotating, cropping and converting to grayscale. Users can also import local images or export captures as JPEG, PNG or multi-page PDF files. Files can be saved to the phone’s local storage or to a remote server.
“There’s no end to the possibilities of leveraging the iPhone as a business tool,” said Amy Gu, Vice President, Dynamsoft. “Using an iPhone as a scanner in your pocket can help expand any organizations document capture capabilities. So, without a doubt we’re excited to offer this SDK, so our customers can more easily integrate mobile capture into their document management applications.”
Use of the SDK in an application occurs offline. So, all operations take place on the user’s iPhone. Thus, no network connection is required. Also, developers can fully customize the style of UI elements, such as icons and text. Dynamsoft Camera SDK iOS Edition is written in Objective-C and can be used natively for App development of Objective-C and Swift 3 projects.
