New version MERLIC 3 now available!

The newest MERLIC version – MERLIC 3 – is now available for download from the MVTec website! Along with the proven range of functions, this latest version also contains a number of new and improved features. These improvements make it even easier and more convenient to create machine vision applications.

The new release improves the optical character recognition (OCR) technologies. For example, MERLIC 3 comes with an OCR classifier that is based on deep learning and can be applied to a wide range of fonts.

MERLIC 3 also further improves the reading of bar and data codes, thus making the recognition of blurry, overexposed, distorted, or low-contrast QR codes more robust. The recognition of ECC 200 codes with missing finder patterns as well as the robustness against false positives were also optimized.
