Avision Adopts Dynamsoft Software Development Kit for Barcode Software to Bundle with New Document Scanners

Dynamsoft's Barcode SDK Helps Avision Create Cost-Effective 1D / 2D Barcode Software to Bundle with 55 New Scanner Products

VANCOUVER, BC – Feb. 9, 2015

Avision has adopted Dynamsoft's barcode reader software development kit (SDK) to create new barcode scanning and reading software for many of the company's document scanners sold throughout North America and other parts of the world. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in the USA and Canada sell these scanners into government, finance and education markets that more and more heavily use barcode technology.

The new barcode capabilities are now included in 55 Avision scanner models. This includes the company's three best-selling models: the AV176+ office desktop scanner, the AV188 compact duplex scanner for documents and plastic ID cards, and the AV122 series which is the company's most compact high speed document scanner. The SDK used for the barcode software allowed Avision to more easily ensure key features were supported, such as file name and barcode type segmentation. The Avision software is Button Manager V2, which is installed on local computers. It is provided bundled on a disc or via download for free with related scanner purchases.

“We opted for a technology partnership with Dynamsoft for their barcode reader SDK and we quickly realized many technical and business advantages," said Leo Liao, Software Manager, Avision. “Dynamsoft's SDK allowed us to implement barcode technology within a week's time. Had we opted to try and do it ourselves it could have taken nearly a year. Dynamsoft's SDK not only helped provide the robust software we wanted to develop, it also saved us extensively in development time and money."

As part of Avision's adoption of Dynamsoft's barcode reader SDK, Dynamsoft will provide full technical support for the barcode reader. Dynamsoft will also provide Avision with any upgrades to the SDK library as they happen. Other terms were not disclosed.


About Dynamsoft's Barcode Reader SDK

Dynamsoft's Dynamic Web TWAIN v10.1 is available starting Dec. 16, 2014. Licensing starts at $399 per server deployment in a non-production environment and $799 per server in a production environment. Other versions are available, including a royalty-free version. The SDK can be purchased and downloaded at the company's website. Multiple award-winning technical support channels are provided with the purchase including, email, live chat, forum and phone.

In addition to .NET applications, the SDK delivers cross-browser support to include, Internet Explorer®, Firefox™, Chrome® and Safari®. It also supports Windows® and Mac® operating systems. It supports reading 10 types of 1D barcodes and five types of 2D barcodes. It also allows detection of QR barcodes at any orientation and rotation angles - regardless of its color - and supports reading barcodes in a specified area of a selected image. The SDK also has built-in functionality to read multiple barcodes in one image. It can return the complete barcode number, barcode results in a string, and detect the barcode type.

Because the SDK can support reading specified types of barcodes it speeds up the barcode decoding process. Error Correcting Codes (ECC) help ensure barcodes can be read even when they are partially damaged. The barcode reader can be downloaded for purchase and trial directly from the Dynamsoft website.
