Document Reader SDK 4.15 — August 16, 2019

SDK

  • IMPORTANT! Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 are no longer supported from this version and forward. You either must stay on previous version, either update OS to Windows 7 at least.
  • Added support for 70x4M-5A devices.
  • Added OCR capability of Chinese Simplified and Traditional. Corresponding document templates updated.
  • Greatly improved OCR for next code pages (alphabets):
    • Cyrillic (Belarusian, Bulgarian, Kazakh, Russian, Serbian, Ukrainian),
    • Baltic(Estonian,Latvian,Lithuanian),
    • Vietnamese,
    • Western European/Latin (English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Finnish, Icelandic, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish),
    • Georgian,
    • Turkish (Turkish, Azeri, Uzbek),
    • Hebrew. Corresponding document templates updated.
  • Greatly improved scanning time on 70x7, 70x8M devices.
  • Improved OCR of the documents with floating inconsistent personalization.
  • Added new functionality of validating the printed text color of the field vs the template to Security text authenticity check. Templates updated to reflect and enable this functionality for corresponding documents. This is a massive update for US and Canada documents and is helpful in cases where validation is available by visible image only.
  • Added new functionality of validating the parameters and content of the barcode vs the template to Barcode format authenticity check. Templates updated to reflect and enable this functionality for corresponding documents. This is a massive update for US and Canada documents and is helpful in cases where validation is available by visible image only.
  • Implemented integration for external Regula face matching web service. If our new dedicated service is installed locally on the PC or its address is specified in RPRM_Command_Set_ProcessParametersJson JSON “processParameters.extPortrait.url” tag, face matching will be performed using that service, which provides more reliable comparison results, compared to the embedded light version.
  • New licensing options introduced: time limited OCR/AAC access and time limited Basic SDK access. At the moment next cases supported, depending on the obtained license:
    • Limited updates for OCR/AAC. For this type of license, you can use SDK versions issued before expiration of your updates subscriptio for unlimited time with full OCR/AAC functionality. Versions issued after expiration date will be limited to Basic SDK functionality only.
    • Time limited OCR/AAC. For this type of license you can use SDK functionality with any SDK version before the subscription expiration date. After that date functionality will be limited to Basic SDK on all SDK/DB versions regardless of their release date. To continue using OCR/AAC functionality you need to renew the subscription.
    • Time limited Basic. For this type of license, you can use Basic SDK functionality with any SDK version before the subscription expiration date. After that date functionality will be limited to “scan only” on all SDK versions regardless of their release date. To continue using Basic SDK functionality you need to renew the subscription.
  • Implemented validation check between Issuing authority and document series in Russian Federation passports.
