The fi-Series used in China's 6th National Census Project
To accomplish this NBSC needed the following:
To satisfy these requirements, NBSC chose high output fi-Series model scanners which are developed and produced by Fujitsu Group subsidiary, PFU Limited(3). For the OCR software, NBSC looked to Fujitsu Research & Development Center Co., LTD(4) which developed software for the project that was optimized for processing handwritten Chinese.
The fi-Series scanners used in this project can deliver a scanning speed of 180 images per minute (90 pages) for A4 size documents and have a duty of 45,000 sheets per day. Developed and produced by PFU Limited, the fi-Series is sold and supported in 185 countries and regions and is proudly promoted as the world's top business grade scanner in terms of market share.
The scanner business of PFU has been expanding in China since 1998 through Fujitsu Hong Kong Limited(5). In addition to producing results in surveys by the NBSC, fi-Series scanners found their way into China's "big 4" state-owned banks(6), numerous major financial institutions, and insurance companies. Today, the fi-Series holds the top share in China's scanner market(7).
The OCR technology that was used in this project was specially developed by Fujitsu Research & Development Center Co., LTD (FRDC). This software can process difficult-to-recognize, handwritten Chinese names at an accuracy exceeding an amazing 99.4%. FRDC also developed the powerful OCR technology which was used in China's 2nd National Agricultural Census in 2006(8).
