How to Read Barcodes from Large Images

In some cases, the captured image is very large, so DBR may require more memory and take longer to read the barcode. To speed up the barcode localization process and reduce memory overhead, you can configure the ScaleDownThreshold parameter to shrink the image size. If the shorter side length of the image is larger than ScaleDownThreshold, the library will shrink the image (50% on each dimension) until the shorter side is less than the threshold.

Note:

  1. If the image size is large and the barcode module size is small, shrinking the image size may result in unreadable barcodes.
  2. Don’t worry about the location of the barcodes, as DBR will still return their coordinates in the original image.
  3. For the JavaScript edition, a BarcodeScanner instance comes with a default ScaleDownThreshold of 2300, which makes it easier to handle continuous video frames.
