NovoDynamics'® VERUS™ Wins 2011 Kinetic Vision Award for Data Capture and Homeland Security

ANN ARBOR, MI--(Marketwire - February 16, 2011) - NovoDynamics®, Inc., a recognized leader in providing advanced information capture and analysis solutions, today announced that VERUS™, the company's advanced global language optical character recognition (OCR) solution, is the recipient of the 2011 Kinetic Vision Award for Data Capture and Homeland Security. The coveted Vision Award is presented to a single company whose technology accomplishments exhibit the greatest potential for helping to solve and transform a critical challenge or social process.

"It continues to surprise us at how technologies we normally associate with basic business processes are being utilized in such exciting ways," said Drew Barrows, deputy editor of High Tech Views. "NovoDynamics is to be commended for not only developing the advanced VERUS™ OCR technology to support the efforts of the security and intelligence sectors, but also for its contributions in helping to make the world a safer place."

NovoDynamics was selected for the award for its work with CACI, a government contractor and professional services and IT company charged with developing a way to identify captured documents from Middle Eastern areas generally associated with the War on Terror. CACI created a solution called CACI Document and Media Exploitation (DOMEX), which utilizes VERUS™ for Middle Eastern languages. VERUS™ tackles the processing of large volumes of Arabic, Persian (Dari, Farsi), Pashto or Urdu documents. It has empowered DOMEX team members to obtain high accuracy results, even on highly degraded pages. The military and intelligence sectors have used this information as a way to better track, prioritize and analyze documents that may have security implications. 

"We're very honored by this award," said David Rock, President and CEO of NovoDynamics. "While we are proud that our VERUS™ OCR technology is used in the intelligence and security sectors, we are equally proud that it's also widely utilized by a variety of Enterprise Content Management companies, including Kofax, EMC and OpenText, to overcome the challenges of text recognition in a variety of business applications."

The Kinetic Vision Award is sponsored by High Tech Views, an online publication that spotlights top tier technology, and is presented to companies that demonstrate outstanding excellence and innovation in advanced information technology.
