Features and Benefits in OpenBook 9.0
PEARL Portable Reading Camera
- Fast Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
OpenBook 9 features the fastest and most accurate text recognition available. Place a document on a scanner or under the PEARL®
camera and OpenBook begins to read and display the recognized text on the screen within seconds of acquiring the image.
OpenBook 9 and the new PEARL camera provide the ultimate in portable acquisition and reading, making capturing text images
faster than ever before - enabling you to snap a picture and begin reading in a matter of seconds. The convenient page guide helps you
align your documents so you capture a good image every time. Place paperback books sideways and the PEARL will capture two pages
at a time. For larger books, such as text books, align the spine of the book at the edge of the guide to capture single pages at a time.
OpenBook captures up to 20 pages per minute. OpenBook’s built-in motion detection prevents snapping a picture until a page is turned and is
perfectly still. The PEARL is designed to capture great images in standard room lighting. If the room is unusually dark, the built-in LED light can
be turned on to provide additional lighting.
Use PEARL as a Video Magnifier
OpenBook 9 includes a new Camera View that displays a live image on your screen of the item currently under the PEARL
camera. This allows you to use PEARL as a video magnifier and perform various short-term tasks where you may require a
magnified view such as magnifying the serial number on a CD or a set of instructions on the outside of a box. The Live View and
captured Exact Views feature the ability to change zoom levels and the Virtual XY table to visually read through the text. Camera
View is activated through the View menu, or you can press CTRL+SHIFT+V to cycle between Text View, Exact View, Split View,
and Camera View.
