How to read high-density QR Codes

A QR code can store up to 7,089 numbers, 4,296 alphanumeric characters, 2,953 bytes, or 1,817 Japanese Kanjis. As the encoded information increases, the QR code becomes denser. The diagram below displays a QR code that has high density.

High-density QR Code

Figure 1 – High-density QR Code

In some scenarios, high-density QR codes become more difficult to locate and recognize due to small barcode images, perspective, and distortion.

We can do the following to optimize the read rate of high-density QR codes:

  • Scale up modules if they are too small
  • Sharpen the image
  • Run gray equalization

The following code snippet shows how to configure the parameters via a json template string.
