Item Image Processing
Full Definition

A specialized form of Document Image Processing which is used to process checks at high speed. Also simply called IIP. Both sides of the check are scanned simultaneously. The check image can then be stored electronically and the physical check does not need to be sorted and stored as is necessary in a non-IIP check processing system. IIP technology has been pioneered in the US where check clearing is regionalized and results in checks being processed by more than one clearing house. See also Document Image Processing.
