What is Maestro Server OCR?

Foxit’s Maestro Server OCR converts paper and scanned documents into searchable PDF files. Engineered for automated, high-volume document scanning & OCR needs, Maestro replaces manual document processes with fast, cost-efficient operations.

Maestro automates the OCR process by converting any document as it enters a watched folder according to configurable settings chosen by the user. Beyond OCR automation, Maestro incorporates unlimited multi-threading and batch OCR to accommodate high-volume scanning, up to billions of pages per year to make Maestro a robust enterprise OCR software solution.

Maestro is designed for high OCR accuracy, speed, and simplicity. The software delivers highly accurate text recognition rates by utilizing in-house PDF expertise as well as a proprietary voting OCR engine. Further, Maestro can process up to 6,000 pages per hour per core (on average) to handle the highest volume environments while accelerating business processes and improving labor productivity. It is a flexible OCR solution which integrates easily into existing document imaging workflows while providing multiple workflow accessibility, allowing users to perform many image processing functions beyond OCR.

Server OCR Use Cases

Maestro Server OCR Software Features

OCR Software for Highly Efficient Document Scanning, Storage and Retrieval

Enterprises, government agencies, and growing organizations utilize Maestro Server OCR to reliably and efficiently convert their scanned paper and image documents to text searchable PDF files. Maestro combines image pre-processing and a proprietary voting OCR engine to deliver high text recognition accuracy out of the box, substantially reducing errors compared to manual document processing from human error.

In addition, the OCR software utilizes automation and multiple high-volume processing capabilities to streamline document scanning, storage, and archiving workflows even at an enterprise scale. Faster OCR pushes documents through business processes faster, facilitating shorter response times to customers, better CSAT, and places your organization in a better position to generate new revenue as a result.

OCR Accuracy, Reliability in Maestro Server OCR

Highly accurate OCR can replace hours spent manually searching for critical information with a simple, instant keyword search. The OCR engine within Maestro is one of the most accurate OCR products available. Maestro's OCR recognizes difficult text often missed by competing products, including text within low resolution captured documents, documents containing multi-directional text, and documents containing low-contrast color text.

More accurate OCR results translate into greater efficiency in indexing, searching for, and working with scanned documents. It also enables more accurate data extraction, data mining for big data applications, and more efficient employees. With Maestro, users are able to instantly locate a single word within a multi-page document that may contain 1 or 1,000 pages; this is analogous to finding the needle in a haystack.

Image Processing

Maestro Server OCR also offers advanced image processing capabilities. With Maestro, images can be de-skewed & de-speckled for enhanced document quality. Maestro also supports IP features including auto-rotation, auto color inversion, auto-cropping, and color re-sampling. Maestro's robust image processing functionality provides enhanced image quality prior to processing with highly accurate OCR.

Advanced PDF Control

Maestro Server OCR provides superior PDF control including: PDF linearization, advanced security, PDF/A compliance, metadata insertion, PDF display control, Bates stamping, and headers & footers. Maestro can output a linearized PDF for fast web view, allowing users to view a specified page within the PDF immediately while the rest of the document loads in the background. Maestro also provides advanced security functionality, including options for edit-protection, print-protection, and read-protection. With Maestro, users can reliably archive their documents with PDF/A compliance.

OCR in Healthcare - Maestro Success Story

With close to 500,000 electronic health records (EHR) in their database, leading cancer research and treatment center City of Hope would spend huge amounts of time manually searching for patient data critical to their research and treatment needs. The health center began looking for a robust OCR solution to recognize text on these scanned EHR image documents and index them in the database. Leveraging Foxit Maestro Server OCR server software allowed the organization to find information within patient files much faster, enabling faster care and accelerating research operations.
