Dynamsoft’s Barcode Reader SDK Vastly Improves Read Speed and Accuracy
Posted OnOctober 17, 2016 by Geeta Priya
Version 4.3 Improves Speed by 40+ Percent for 1D Barcodes, Making the SDK Even More Suited for Demanding Enterprise-Grade Applications
Dynamsoft has upgraded its Barcode Reader software development kit (SDK) to vastly improve decoding speed and accuracy for various 1D and 2D barcodes, making the SDK even more well-suited for enterprise-grade applications. Barcode reading speed increased by 40+ percent for 1D barcodes. Barcode reading accuracy for 1D and 2D barcodes are also improved. For example, accuracy improved by around 29 percent when scanning QR codes from different perspectives.
These improvements are in Dynamsoft’s Barcode Reader SDK version 4.3, compared to internal testing with version 4.2. To accomplish these improvements, a new localization algorithm was implemented for 1D barcode scanning. The new SDK also has optimized decoding performance for large size or special angle 1D barcodes and for multiple 1D barcode decoding. And, multi-thread processing has been implemented for 2D barcode reading.
“Our Barcode Reader SDK was already enterprise-grade but, it’s important to workflows and enterprise productivity to improve speed and accuracy when possible in barcode decoding,” said Amy Gu, Vice President of Dynamsoft. “So, we’re particularly excited to have our barcode reader SDK vastly improved in speed and accuracy across 1D and 2D barcodes.”
Dynamsoft’s Barcode Reader SDK enables users to efficiently embed barcode reading functionality in their web, desktop and mobile applications using just a few lines of code. It saves months of development time and saves on additional development costs too. It also significantly reduces long-term application support costs. With the SDK, users can decode barcodes from various image file formats (bmp, jpg, png and tiff). This includes from device-independent bitmap (DIB) formats which can be obtained from cameras or scanners. Supported bar code types include 1D barcodes (Code 39, Code 128, Code 93, Codabar, Interleaved 2 of 5, Industrial 2 of 5, EAN-13, EAN-8, UPC-A, UPC-E) and 2D barcodes (QRCode, DATAMATRIX, PDF417). Dynamsoft’s Barcode Reader SDK provides .NET, ActiveX / COM, C, C++, and PHP application programming interfaces (API).
