for digitizing signatures and taking ID photos
The program "StudioUEC" is designed to automate the
process of photographing and digitizing signatures. Thanks to
its flexible settings of parameters and modes of transmission
ready photos and signatures, the program can be used to work with
a variety of databases (DB), control systems and access control
systems (ACS ), with softwares, which is used for the manufacture
of driving licenses, electronic policies, for tachograph and transport
cards, badges, permits, transportation, pension, campus, ISIC,
and any other cards.
Taking pictures can be produced directly from the program using
cameras that support remote control from a computer, such as Canon
EOS 1100D, or HD WebCams, such as Microsoft LifeCam Studio.
The program allows to digitize the signature using conventional
scanners or using low-cost graphics tablets, such as Genius G-Pen
F350. In addition, thanks to the built-in Wacom driver, it allows
you to work with the specialized signature pads Wacom
STU-300, STU-500 and STU-520.
In developing the program "StudioUEC" the emphasis was
on the fact that it must be very simple, clear and easy for users
with minimal knowledge of computer technology.
If necessary, we can make virtually any changes to the program
and modify it to the specific requirements of the customer.
The program interface is simple and intuitive. After running StudioUEC
program the Main Form appears on the screen. In it, in addition
to the main menu, tools for capturing photos, digitizing signatures
and image processing, there are two Image Boxes. The left Image
Box shows the preview video that is coming from a Digital Photo
Camera or a Web Camera. After shooting this Image Box displays the
downloaded raw picture in which the program automatically finds
the face and places a crop box so to ensure the implementation of
geometric requirements for photos. The portion of the downloaded
picture that is inside the crop box appears in the upper right Image
Box. This Image Box shows the preview of the finished photo which
will be saved to a file or copied to the clipboard.
Operator using the mouse or the "hot keys " can manually
adjust the position and size of the crop box, and hence the appearance
of the finished pictures.
Text tips on working with the program appears at the bottom of the
window, which greatly simplifies the process of training of operators.
In addition to taking photos the program have the ability to digitize
signatures as using low-cost digitizers, such as Genius G-Pen F350,
and with the use of specialized Wacom tablet models: STU-300, STU-500
and STU-520. The main difference between a professional Wacom digitizer
from the ordinary in the fact that the pen leaves a mark on the
surface of the pad, so there is a feeling as of writing on paper.
The program will automatically select the region of the signature,
it will cut out and will scale to the size specified by the user.
Then, the signature can be saved to a file or copied to the clipboard.
As in the case of photography, the operator has the opportunity
to make manual corrections.
If you do not have a graphics tablet, the signature can be entered
into the program using a conventional scanner.
Camera remote control
Most of digital cameras do not allow to take photo, if they are
connected to the computer by USB cable. Therefore, in the course
of taking ID photos after each camera shoot it is necessary to connect
the camera to the computer first, then to download a picture from
its memory card, then to process and print a photo, again to disconnect
the camera from the computer and only after that to take picture
of the next person. Thanks to the function of the camera remote
control realised in "StudioTW" for the cameras mentioned
below, it is possible to simplify and accelerate this procedure,
having created some kind of the automated workstation. This function
allows to set all necessary parametres of shooting (zoom, flash
mode, white balance, shutter speed, aperture, ISO, …) and to make
photography directly from the computer. You instal the camera on
a tripod, connect its USB cable to the computer and through program
"StudioTW" take photos by pressing buttons on the keyboard.
After each photographing the photo is automatically transferred
from the camera to the computer. All procedure of taking and printing
photos takes less then couple minutes. Besides, it is possible to
see a camera viewfinder preview on the computer monitor before shooting.
So it will allow to take photos even when the operator is sitting
back or sideways to the client.
If the quality of photos is not imposed such strict requirements
as to the photo on the passport or visa, then instead of expensive
digital photo camera, you can use a WebCam. Especially because many
eminent manufacturers offer models with matrices from 2 megapixels,
which is enough to produce quality photos on plastic cards, badges,
name tags, etc. Very good photos are using webcams "Microsoft
In our opinion in today's HD WebCams, there is one drawback - the
lack of flash. So you have to mess with setting up the lighting.
But they are a distinct advantage - the price of 100 US $.
If it is required to retouch a photo, you can take advantage of
the built in editor of program "StudioTW". In it you also
can make red eyes reduction or change clothes on the person.
For printing high quality photos, the operator can correct a photo
on brightness, contrast, sharpnesses, to a saturation and colour
