Sunnyvale, CA (PressExposure) April 18, 2008 -- Inlite Research Inc, a leading worldwide provider of production quality tools for data capture, today announced the general availability of the ClearImage DL/ID. The Real ID act, and many other identity systems around the world, specify the use of PDF417 barcodes on identity documents and driver licenses, in order to make them reliably decodable by computer systems. The barcode on the documents carries information encoded in accordance with the AAMVA specifications. Many applicaitons such as age verification, access control or tracking, payee verification, and account opening require access to some of the data on the license. ClearImage DL/ID applies image enhancement procedures to accurately read the barcode on the card. Any IT developer, without special expertise in image handling can now add driver license or ID card information extraction to their application.
The engine provides
â¢ .NET support for managed code â¢ Recognition of all the barcodes on the card â¢ Support for PDF, TIFF, JPG and many other input file formats. â¢ Delivers raw data for parsing by the application â¢ Delivers parsed fields in accordance with the relevant version of the AAMVA specification. â¢ Source code examples for VB.NET and C#

"ClearImage DL/ID offers a simple interface with powerful automation which means that developers can focus on their application and end user requirements, instead of the image processing details."
