FileNet Capture Architecture

IBM FileNet Capture provides the capability to add documents to the Content Engine object store or Image Manager repository. Capture supports the automating the document entry process which saves lot of time compared to manual entry. Apart from image capturing tools like ADR (Advanced Document Recognition), OCR (Optical Character Recognition) are available to read the data from the captured image. FileNet Capture supports three document capture methods.
1. Scanning
2. Faxing
3. File Import

FileNet Capture supports a wide variety of scanners from low volume personal scanners to high volume production scanners. 
The FaxEntry portion of the Capture product provides an automated method for automatically capturing inbound faxes.
The Capture File Import capability provides a method to import existing documents from user directories. 

There are two different API are available to develop custom applications apart from the out of box capture application.
  1. Capture COM API 
  2. Remote Capture Services .Net API
Capture COM API set provides Capture repository objects and ActiveX controls for image acquisition (for example, scanning and document upload), batching, advanced document recognition (ADR), and others.
Remote Capture Services (RCS) provides a .NET framework for developers to build custom .NET Web applications. The RCS toolkit includes Web interface controls, the RCS framework, as well as Capture repository objects.

There are two different capture applications are available
  1. IBM FileNet Capture Desktop
  2. IBM FileNet Capture Professional
Capture Desktop is intended for low volume applications where as Capture Professional intended for high volume applications. Capture Professional is allowing us to save the documents to both Content Engine and image services repository where as in Capture Desktop we can save the documents only to Content Engine repository.
