You can apply this technology to create your own data input form or mark sheet. Users can print the form on demand then mark, scan, access their data in the cloud.
Epson software developer Kent Sisco talks with ISV Architect Evangelist Bruce Kyle about how he created this sample application.
The demo shows an admin configuring a Marksheet form. The form could be part of an application at a kiosk at a golf course. Next, the video shows a golfer printing out a score sheet and then marks the scorecard for each hole of golf. Once the golf day is completed, the user scans the sheet even if the scorecard is crumpled or torn.
The golfer's marks are then sent to a Windows Azure worker role where the image is translated to data and stored in SQL Azure. Users can then access their golf scores from a Windows Azure ASP.NET application.
The demo is a prototype for printing, scanning, and data storage applications for education, medicine, government, and business.
