VANCOUVER – May 22, 2017
The new version builds upon updates provided earlier this year. In March, a new deblur algorithm for 1D barcodes was added. It is particularly useful for scanning linear barcodes from out-of-focus, blurred images. Another March update allows developers to specify the capture device, which can include a scanner, camera or fax machine used to scan barcode images. When set, the SDK can then apply an appropriate image processing technique specific to the images captured from that device. And, a multi-thread capability for 1D barcode reading and decoding was implemented to improve barcode decoding performance.
"We've essentially retooled our Barcode Reader SDK, so the use of APIs is more convenient for developers," said Amy Gu, Vice President at Dynamsoft." And, regarding the new core communication design structure our customers requested from us, it enables greater installation flexibilities and freedom from extra work."
Supported 1D barcodes, or linear barcodes, include Code 39, Code 128, Code 93, Codabar, Interleaved 2 of 5, Industrial 2 of 5, EAN-13, EAN-8, UPC-A, UPC-E. Supported 2D barcodes include QR code, Datamatrix, and PDF417.
