Key Products and Services Publishing Preparation System

Publishing Preparation System


Publishing Preparation Solution is a powerful multi-tier tool designed to prepare large quantities of image files for publishing by wiping out the confidential information from the images. Confidential information can be identified by word masks or regular expressions, suitable for both free from documents and forms. Confidential information can also be identified by fixed position (templates); this approach works well only on the forms where the information maintains specific position. A template document must be of the same type of form as the documents to be processed. It is possible to define multiple templates as well as multiple masks to be set up simultaneously. The product allows using the specially designed QA station to verify identification results before wiping the information out. The user performing QA can add, modify, or delete the highlight that marks information to be hidden from the final, redacted document. 

User requirements define the way how information "hidden" from the image. Customer has a choice between placing an annotation (for TIFF/DMS) over sensitive data and burning a rectangle for permanent image modification. In case of permanent modification we recommend keeping the original document.
A customer can configure in multiple ways how documents are “triggered” to be processed for sensitive information identification and redaction. The solution can work of certain network share or database.

Mask identification requires installation and licensing of the ABBYY® FineReader® Engine 8.1 runtime. © 2007 ABBYY Software. ABBYY FineReader – the keenest eye in OCR.
