History and Technology
Founded in the 1960s by 4 Connecticut men with financial backing from The Travelers Companies with the goal of developing the brand-new and barely functioning OCR technology, Scan-Optics was part of the technology groups enabling the transition from paper to digital - capturing the required data and delivering the information in the expected format making information accessible upon framework.
Scan-Optics developed the image dissector tube and made it commercially available, pioneered an alphanumeric Handwriting recognition system, and introduced key data entry integrated with Optical Character Recognition via a direct computer-to-computer link to accomplish image reject repair. In a 1997 study Doculabs classified Scan-Optics' ICR as "a significant improvement over standard ICR technology" - in tests using 3,400 forms completed from a national sample of the general population, only Scan-Optics' ICR technology yielded a field read rate accuracy of approximately 90%  In recent years, Scan-Optics' developments  included acoustic double page detection, context edit, the integration of MICR and barcode reading into the recognition system and the introduction of grayscale capability in OCR.
