Matrox SureDotOCR - the world’s most comprehensive solution for reading dot-matrix text


hile barcodes have made identifying products easy for machines, a format

that can also be easily read directly by human consumers is still very important. To this end, dot-matrix characters as produced by inkjet printers is even now the most common form of human-readable text on product packaging. If set properly, inkjet printers provide

legible printing. However, the realities of the production line and the print surface lead to variations/imperfections in the way text is printed. These imperfections make reading for automatic tracking difficult. Matrox SureDotOCR is a software tool

specifically designed for the unique challenge of reading dot-matrix text. Its use is straightforward, only needing to specify dot size, the number of characters in a potential text string, and the dimensions, but not the location, of the text region. SureDotOCR is provided with a set of pre-defined fonts but also accepts custom fonts for more precise matching. Capable of reading multiple lines of text, SureDotOCR can even read each line of text in different fonts. SureDotOCR recognises punctuation

marks and blank spaces, and supports user defined constraints, overall and at specific character positions, to further enhance recognition rates. SureDotOCR reads strings located at any angle, with varying contrasts, and on uneven backgrounds. It interprets distorted characters and handles some variability to character scale.

Where to find Matrox SureDotOCR?

Matrox SureDotOCR is available in the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) and Matrox Design Assistant software.


Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) is a software development kit (SDK) for creating vision application through traditional programming. It offers a comprehensive set of tools for every step in the process: from application feasibility, to prototyping, through to development, and ultimately deployment. Matrox Design Assistant is an

integrated development environment (IDE) where vision applications are created by constructing an intuitive flowchart. The IDE also enables users to directly design a graphical operator interface for the application. To learn more visit: /software/suredotocr

MIL CoPilot — a new era for vision application

development using the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL)

Working with a programming library to assess the feasibility and best approach to developing a vision application can be both intimidating and time consuming. Matrox has removed the bulk of this burden with the introduction of MIL CoPilot, a new interactive environment for the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL); a field-proven software development kit (SDK) with a comprehensive set of tools for vision application development. MIL CoPilot enables users to select and

fine-tune operations before including them in a particular vision application, without writing any code. All the work done within a session is conveniently held together in a workspace for future reference or sharing with colleagues. A live preview allows users to

experiment freely before committing to an operation. The best part is, MIL CoPilot will generate clear, functional code for immediate integration. To learn more visit: /software/co-pilot
