Is OCR thread safe

Post by beinder » Fri Mar 11, 2016 6:04 pm

We currently use the PRO SDK to OCR documents one at a time. We would like to be able to utilize more CPU cores. Can we OCR multiple documents each in their own thread or will the SDK break in this case?

Hello beinder,

Our old OCR have not supported multiple thread usage though our new Editor OCR engine will support multiple thread usage in one of the nearest future releases (probably 318 or so). Because currently the Editor SDK is not yet updated for this kind of usage of OCR, though we already have that behavior in our inner code so it's only a matter of time that we'll have this functionality in our Editor SDK OCR interfaces.
