Mobile Capture SDK Libraries

LEADTOOLS Mobile Capture SDK uses the live preview on mobile devices and tablets to enable real-time recognition without taking multiple photos. Android, iOS, and Xamarin (C# & VB) developers can quickly build complex applications that capture text and data—in real-time—from documents, identification cards, barcodes, credit cards, checks, and more.

Feature-rich Mobile Capture SDK

Real-Time Mobile Data Capture Libraries

LEADTOOLS provides fast and reliable APIs to process captured images in real-time from the live camera feed. Real-time Recognition components include:

Image processing Mobile Capture Libraries

Mobile Document Scanning

The LEADTOOLS libraries provide all tools a developer needs to create state-of-the-art mobile document scanning solutions. Specialized image processing functions help to convert photos of documents into actual documents. Some of those functions are:

  • Perspective correction
  • Manual and automatic brightness/contrast adjustment
  • Auto crop
  • Binarization
  • Sharpen
  • Rotate/Deskew
  • Glare detection
  • Noise removal
  • Functions to enhance recognition speed and accuracy using cameras with fixed-focus lenses
Camera API to control both iOs and Android devices

Xamarin Camera Control

The LEADTOOLS libraries offer many components that facilitate and enhance mobile capture. The LEADTOOLS Camera Control for Xamarin is essential for Xamarin developers that need to capture from both Android and iOS devices. It provides a common camera API to control both devices, which eliminates the complexities of maintaining more than one codebase.
