Decipher Embedded Text In Images And Videos, From Your Platform

The Text Detection module automates the process of extracting text embedded in visual media into machine-readable text and is an excellent addition to our core logo detection module.

This recognised text is interpreted into characters and words. They can be displayed within an image or video in a wide variety of treatments, from different fonts and colours to camera angles and rotation. 

Examples include returning words seen in a social media image, or store signage in a photograph, or a slogan on an advertising banner in a sports stadium.

Enterprise-Grade Text Detection For Your Application

Our character recognition suite powers a wide range of common applications, including:

Our Visual-AI also supports very unique applications for unusual use cases, such as research projects, thanks to its flexibility and adaptability.
