I was trying out the text_detection_demo available in the OpenVino toolkit. I was able to read all the video files. I was even successful in detecting and reading texts through camera with a little modification in the source code, but in case of image files i was unable to read the tiff image file. Can anyone tell me what needs to be done to be able to read the tiff files?Do i need to use libtiff header files and do some modifications or is there any other method? Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
Check if the opencv that was built in openvino works with TIFF files.
You can check on this file: /opt/intel/openvino_2019.3.376/opencv/build_params.txt there is a line with:
-D WITH_TIFF=OFF \
As an example, you could check how tiff files reading is implemented in 3D Segmentation Python Demo - https://github.com/opencv/open_model_zoo/blob/master/demos/python_demos/3d_segmentation_demo/3d_segmentation_demo.py
