Taipei, Taiwan—January 7, 2014—CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW) a provider of innovative media creativity solutions, today launched a powerful yet easy-to-use note-capturing app that isolates and precisely selects the important information in your photos, then instantly corrects perspective and enhances image quality.

Digitize Important Notes and Documents
