WHAT IS INDIGO
INDIGO is a management system for digital material of any kind. It’s made for institutions and companies which are in the process of digitization and need a tool for organizing, describing, storing and searching through all types of digital data (text, images, sound, video, 3D, etc.) which are part of their business.
Catalog records of specified formats and standards, prepare lists of materials ready for digitization, monitor the status of the digitization phases.
Process digitized materials, archive files, create file derivatives, mark, tag an annotate emelments and create digital and virtual collections.
INDIGO supports the automation of many processes such as OCR. The OCR engine runs on Tesseract which supports more than 140 languages including vernacular languages.
Store files of any type (text, image, audio, video, 3D) and view them in highest resolution, create digital exhibitions and publish them on your own customized user portal.
Tag elements of scanned documents, describe them with metadata and connect them to other repository objects.
INDIGO allows users to mark an area of the scanned page (by adding a frame or another shape) and choose between three actions for that selection.
- Add a text note: For example, in a photo with many people, one can place tags with the corresponding names and surnames.
- Save the selected element: in a repository (as a new object) and describe it with metadata.
- Link the selected content to an existing: record (without creating a new repository object).
Benefit: Tag objects – Identify objects under one name
Entering metadata for hundreds of records can be a time-consuming process.
The built-in OCR module allows users to add text directly from the scanned document. Highlight the text area which needs to be inserted and add it with one click. There is no need to rewrite entire texts.
A text-correction option and other options are also included in INDIGO. OCR text recognition and content indexing for search, metadata and full-text search are equally supported.
