Scanbot SDK

Business Card Scanner SDK

Scan up to 6 business cards simultaneously while on-device OCR guarantees the highest privacy standard. The scanner detects the orientation of each card and rotates it automatically.

Auto-rotation & perspective correction

Our outstanding automatic cropping and perspective correction ensures that scans look just like the original. The edge detection is visible as a rectangle in the live camera, so you can already see what you get. Additionally, the SDK comes with a feature to adjust the crop manually.

Intelligent image filtering

Over the years we have developed a set of image filters that work perfectly for documents. We've got something for every type of document and use-case. The Black & White Filter with its extreme compression allows you to have tiny files. Our Grayscale and Color filters are tuned for documents with images and preserve all details. Our Magic Color filter goes a step further and features an automatic content detection to optimize parts of the page accordingly. The results are bright and sharp documents that look like an enhanced digital version of the original.
