OwnCloud is the most popular and common OpenSource Cloud software which is used for both private- and public-clouds. OwnCloud is available as an OpenSource (community edition) as well as an extended Enterprise version. We also use OwnCloud in our company to make files externally accessible and share them with our partners in a quick and easy way. Files can be synchronized automatically and can also be retrieved via mobile apps on the smartphone or tablet.
On this basis, we developed an integration between AutoOCR and our FileConverterPro server / service. With it most Office, CAD and e-mail document formats can be converted to searchable PDF or PDF/A-1b, PDF/A-3b automatically or interactive / manually incl. OCR directly from the OwnCloud.
Supported FCpro file-formats:
- DOC, DOCX, DOCM, RTF, TXT, ODT
- XLS, XLSX, XLSM
- PPT, PPTX, PPS, PPSX,
- FDF, XFDF (Adobe forms),
- PNG, BMP, TIF, TIFF, JPG, JPEG, GIF
- ZIP, RAR, 7Z,
- MSG, EML,
- HTM, HTML, MHTML,
- PMTX (PDFMerge)
- DWG, DXF, DWF
- Abbyy: PDF, TIF, TIFF, PNG, JPG, JPEG, BMP, GIF, PCX, DCX, JP2, JPC, DJV, DJVU, WDP
- iOCR: PDF, TIFF, JPEG, PNG
How the conversion should take place can be chosen from the processing profiles which are stored on the FileConverterPro / AutoOCR server. Behind these profiles there can be a whole set of options and settings which not only offer the conversion but, with the FCpro, also additional extended functions e.g.:
- underlay stationery
- add stamps or watermarks
- insert header and footer
- generate table of content
- control file-permissions and document-security
Container formats like ZIP, RAR, 7Zip or e-mail container like MSG / EML which can contain multiple files or nested attachements get resolved by the FCpro, converted and merged to an overall-PDF with bookmarks.
Caution: The conversion is initiated from the OwnCloud server via “Crown” job with a setable intervall. To shorten the waiting period the, by default set to 15 min., interval should be set to 1 to 5 min.
