Machine learning based layout analysis
docWorks 7.1 offers the option to improve layout analysis based on machine learning. The machine learning support in docWorks 7.1 increases automation through better zoning quality. Over time the proportion of manual post processing will be minimized, accuracy and precision in the layout analyzing process will be increased.

Including pre-trained model
docWorks 7.1 includes a pre-trained model, ready to be used for newspapers with conservative layout. Large scale digitization projects can greatly benefit from custom trained models.

Get your custom model
A custom machine learning model, based on your particular training data set, may increase the zoning quality significantly. CCS docWorks offers the creation of such models as a service.

EASY Software AG develops simple and powerful archiving platforms. We have now intensified the partnership between CCS and EASY that has existed since 2017. With immediate effect, EASY Archive will be permanently integrated into newsWorks and can simply be activated as an additional function if required.
  
Digitization project for CPL
We are delighted that our long-standing customer, the Cleveland Public Library, has entrusted us with another digitization project. CPL already owns a MagicBox®, a MagicTouch kiosk, is a docWorks user and works with us on special digitization projects.

MagicBox® in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Our MagicBox® is now in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland! In 2019, seven new artists/bands — including Janet Jackson, Radiohead and Def Leppard — were inducted into the Hall of Fame and welcomed by the MagicBox® in the main exhibition hall. We are very happy that this prestigious institution chose the MagicBox® as a presentation device!
  
NEW: Text correction tool ORCA
We present ORCA, our new web tool for fast and flexible OCR correction. Thanks to ORCA, OCR correction projects can now be split and flexibly distributed to where people with the necessary technical or language skills are located. This allows projects to be processed efficiently and much more cost-effectively.
NEW: Online conversion service docWorks SX
docWorks SX is the express version of our trusted digitization service docWorks Service. With docWorks SX, all data transfers are handled online, processing is fully automated, and all project configurations and payment options are standardized. This makes docWorks SX particularly interesting for small to medium-sized libraries or test projects.

The conversion of print material into searchable and metadata-rich digital collections is one of the most important tasks for many libraries. However, investments in the necessary conversion technology and labor are expensive and often oversized. This is particularly true for small to medium-sized libraries that only want to convert occasionally and do not have the budget for a constant setup.

That's why we developed docWorks SX.

docWorks SX is a cloud-based version of our proven docWorks Service (Digitization Services), which is used by libraries that prefer to outsource their digitization and conversion work to a professional service provider. docWorks SX is specifically designed to meet the needs of small to medium-sized libraries or libraries that want to perform smaller test runs before investing in large digitization projects.

Features of docWorks SX

  • All data uploads and downloads are handled completely online.
  • All project configurations are standardized and can be easily selected during upload.
  • All processing is highly automated.
  • Payment is made via credit points, which can be purchased on the docWorks SX website.
  • There are no fixed costs. Billing is per page.

Please contact me to learn more about how docWorks SX can help you create metadata-rich digital collections.

OCR verification and correction is one of the most challenging tasks of the conversion workflow, especially when digitizing publications in foreign languages or writing systems. However, in-house staff do not always have the specific language skills needed, which means that this data cannot be checked sufficiently or only at high cost. That's why we developed ORCA.
 

ORCA. Flexible. Efficient. Better.
ORCA allows the project manager to subdivide projects by volume, text language or writing system and assign them to operators who have the necessary skills. Thanks to ORCA's cloud-based application, these operators do not have to be on site, but can access the project from anywhere in the world. Work can thus be flexibly distributed to where people with the right technical or language skills are, and the total volume of manpower can always be adapted to the needs of the project.

 

“ORCA is a great product. It simplifies the OCR correction process and thereby solves a central bottleneck problem. I am pleased that CCS has made the additional effort to develop it further, with my team giving first-hand feedback.”

—Vincent Tan, CD Imaging Singapore

ORCA enables a completely new, decentralized and flexible distribution of OCR post-editing, so that projects can be completed faster, better and more cost-effectively. 

Please call us at +49 40 227130-0 to learn more about how ORCA can help your project.

Digitization Services for Thuner Tagblatt
The Thuner Tagblatt is the newspaper for Thun and reports daily on topics from politics, economy, sport and society in the whole region. The newspaper has commissioned CCS to digitize and convert almost half a million historical newspaper pages from the archive.
 
  
 newsWorks 
Ministry of Lower Saxony uses newsWorks
The Lower Saxony Ministry for Federal and European Affairs and Regional Development is one of ten state ministries in Lower Saxony. It is based in the capital of Lower Saxony, Hanover. It was established as a new ministry after the state elections in 2017.
Federal Press Office extends newsWorks installation
The Federal Press Office is the information center of the German Federal Government. From here the Federal President and the Chancellor are informed about the worldwide news situation. The office also informs the population about the politics of the Federal Government. We are pleased that the Federal Press Office has now decided to further expand the use of newsWorks.
  
 MagicTouch 
Release of MagicTouch 3
In November we released the new version of MagicTouch. MagicTouch is the easy-to-use content management software for touchscreens. The new version now offers the possibility to add captions to photo galleries and to enrich info popups with media. MagicTouch 3 also comes with a completely redesigned upload page and a new installation wizard that guides you through all updates and new installations.
RPI buys MagicTouch and Kiosk
We are happy to announce that the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) purchased our MagicTouch software and an additional MagicTouch Kiosk. The RPI is a private research university and space-grant institution in Troy, New York, with additional campuses in Hartford and Groton, Connecticut.
  
Federal Reserve Bank buys MagicTouch and Kiosk
The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago has equipped their “Money Museum” with our MagicTouch software and a MagicTouch Kiosk. The museum presents the lighter side of cold, hard cash. There is a machine that shreds old, unusable bills right before visitors’ eyes (the bank regularly shreds around $10 million a day). The resulting “mon-fetti” is then given to the guests as a souvenir. Across from this display, there is a huge glass cube that is stuffed with a million dollars in $1 bills. There is also a disused elevator shaft that has been filled with over $50,000 in coins, creating a cartoonish well of monies. Admittance to the museum is free and in fact, factoring in the sack of torn up money most guests leave with (usually consisting of around $400), this may be the only museum that pays you to visit.
New Chinese partner for MagicTouch
We welcome Suzhou SinoCheck Systems as new partner for MagicTouch in China. The company is one of the leading library self-service system suppliers in China and developed a new touch kiosk system, which will be bundled with MagicTouch.
  
Holiday Support
Please note our support times during German Christmas and New Year’s holidays. newsWorks support will be fully available except on December 25 and 26, 2018 and on January 1, 2019. docWorks support will not be available December 24, 2018 until January 1, 2019. We wish everyone a merry X-Mas and a happy New Year!
