Tech Spec

Extended OCR Module

The Extended OCR Module for Autobahn DX adds the IRIS OCR engine as an alternative to the standard Aquaforest engine. This has a number of benefits including optional support for Asian languages and DOCX output.

Multi-Core Licenses

The number of cores licensed determines how many CPU cores the software can use concurrently. As a rough guide, the software can process 1,000 pages per hour per CPU core although this will vary according to a number of factors.

A single Autobahn DX job can be configured to use multiple cores, processing multiple files in parallel. This is ideally suited for maximizing throughput when processing large volumes of documents of any size.

The Autobahn DX multi-core capabilities dramatically increase throughput of OCR-based jobs which are highly CPU-intensive.

Performance and Configuration

Our team is able to offer advice on the best product configuration and hardware to achieve your performance goals. Just let us know what your throughput requirements are and we will help – email support@aquaforest.com

Microsoft SharePoint Support

SharePoint is supported as a document target destination (SharePoint Upload) and as a source (SharePoint Download). This allows SharePoint document libraries to be populated directly from Autobahn DX jobs.

Highly Compressed PDF Support

Autobahn DX supports both Mixed Raster Compression (MRC) for optimal compression of scanned color PDFs as well as JBIG2 for optimal compression of bitonal documents.

PDF/A and PDF/X Support

Autobahn DX supports generation of PDF/A and PDF/X compliant files from “born digital” documents such as Microsoft Word as well as scanned image TIFF and PDF files.
