LuraTech Mobile PDF
The professional solution for scanning, OCR, compression and
conversion of documents with smartphones and tablets to PDF and PDF/A.


    LuraTech Mobile PDF
    The professional solution for scanning, OCR, compression and conversion
    of documents with smartphones and tablets to PDF and PDF/A.

    Businesses maintain the highest possible quality standards when scanning incoming paper mail,
    allowing them to use sophisticated systems to assign it to the appropriate employee’s
    digital inbox with a minimum of manual intervention.

    Increasingly, though, we are all starting to use smartphones and tablets instead of paper mail
    to “just quickly scan this document” by photographing it and sending it as an email attachment.
    The quality of these images tends to be problematic, and processing them is an entirely manual job.

    This is where LuraTech Mobile PDF comes in, providing solutions that ensure
    the ideal document is produced right at the moment of capture on the smartphone.
    We’ve developed a whole range of filtering and QA algorithms and
    made them available both as an app and in SDK form.

    Make a virtue out of necessity:
    equip your app with the ability to scan or digitally submit documents.
    The LuraTech Mobile PDF solutions provide everything you need
    to add mobile scanning to your own app.
    Development time is minimal - we’ve already solved each problem for you.

    Naturally, the software also includes our award-winning MRC technology:
    fourth-generation mobile networks may be fast, but users are still limited by their data allowances
    - there’s no need for them to use it all up sending just one or two documents.

    Maximum document quality, less manual processing, streamlined document management within your business.
    Increase the range of services offered to your customers to include digital document submission.
    And all of this with a minimum of development work: LuraTech Mobile PDF!

LuraTech Mobile PDF Scanning - Picture
    1. LuraTech PDF Scanner App LuraTech Mobile PDF - The Scanner - Logo

    The LuraTech PDF Scanner App turns your smartphone or tablet
    into a mobile scanner for all types of documents.

    You can now simply take snapshots of any single-page or multi-page
    paper document and turn them directly into high-quality PDF files.

    The app sticks to the promise behind the entire LuraTech Mobile PDF product family:
    controlled, maximum-quality scans just like the source material.

    PDF Scanner App ensures excellent single- or multi-page scans, stored as highly
    compressed PDF files or JPEG image sequences in the app’s document list.
    Scanned documents can be immediately and quickly uploaded to a predefined
    cloud storage service or forwarded by email for further processing.

    LuraTech Mobile PDF Scanner App brings LuraTech’s award-winning
    MRC compression technology to your smartphone.
    This layer-based mixed raster content technology (MRC)
    can compress scanned documents to a ratio of 1:100 or better.
    Outstanding image quality and text legibility are preserved, while
    storage costs and bandwidth requirements are drastically reduced.

    Main features:
    • Scan your documents by using the integrated camera.
    • Page distortion is automatically corrected.
    • Create highly compressed PDF documents.

    Additional features:
    • Manage JPEG and PDF documents using a file list.
    • Camera focus is controlled by the App and pictures can
      be taken manually or automatically when focused.
    • Automatically crop and scale images by recognizing page borders,
      plus manual cropping and scaling with magnifier function.
    • Pages can be rotated and re-ordered before converting them to a PDF file.
      Cropping, brightness and contrast can also be adjusted manually.
    • Constant quality control during capture: detects disruptive reflections,
      excessive distance from document, or poor lighting conditions, and uses overlays
      on the camera image to direct the reader to the best possible result.
    • Brightness, contrast and color balance are adjusted automatically for optimal readability.
    • PDF Scanner stores all images taken as PDF files and optionally also
      as series of JPEG images in its own document list.
    • Creates highly-compressed PDF files fully compliant with PDF/A-2u (ISO 19005-2),
      the file format recommended for long-term archiving.
    • Existing documents within the list can be updated at a later date:
      add pages, align, delete and edit.
    • Upload to cloud storage service and send by email from within the app.

    The PDF Scanner App is based on the LuraTech App Framework SDK-
    The App Framework SDK includes a copy of the app’s source code.
    It really doesn’t get any easier.

Use Case - Smart Scanning Apps using Enterprise Web Services



LuraTech Mobile PDF Smart Scanning Apps - Banner
    Business Processes Begin on the Smartphone with Smart Scanning Apps

    So many business processes begin with a sheet of paper.
    Maybe it’s an application form in the B2C field, maybe it’s a B2B contract.
    Maybe it’s for internal use, like an expense sheet for an employee’s latest off-site trip.
    The possibilities go on and on.

    Now smart scanning apps can easily be integrated into a business’ own systems using
    web service architectures meaning that not only would processes complete automatically,
    but the smartphone user would also receive responses to their submissions,
    including approval messages and signatures.

    Start offering on the move customer services at reduced costs
    with smart scanning apps technology from LuraTech.

    Develop interactive smart scanning apps for businesses quickly and without any prior
    understanding of document and image processing or how to add functions like
    document submission to existing apps with a minimum of time investment.
