OMR – Optical Mark Recognition
Retrieve data and images and get total control of form overprint
OMR is the most cost-effective and accurate way to collect simple information from forms in high volume or time critical environments.

The PS1000 scanner is an ideal hardware solution for OMR projects. This is because the OMR is carried out within the scanner firmware allowing a superior control when determining:

  • "eraser discrimination" - where a candidate has rubbed out a response
  • “minimum mark discrimination” - where the candidate has made light/small marks

The PS1000 scanner intelligently counts light marks or small marks. Unlike other scanners that provide a basic "blob detection", the PS1000 excels at reducing manual effort dealing with multi-marks or missing marks.
