Barcode Scanning at a Speed of 500+ per Minute

Dynamsoft's barcode scanning SDK is the best in the industry. It can easily handle various scenarios, including:

  • Scanning video streams on mobile phones
  • Scanning static images from high-resolution industrial cameras
  • Scanning large images and PDF files in an automated desktop service

Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK also has a leading edge on reading multiple or dozens of barcodes at once. This can greatly boost efficiency, especially when it comes to industrial manufacturing and inventory management where speed is important.

Barcode Scan SDK

Scan Unreadable Barcodes and QR Codes

Dynamsoft's enterprise-grade barcode reader SDK is a robust solution for decoding the most challenging barcodes. It can easily handle various tough codes that are:

  • Curved
  • Tiny
  • Marked Up
  • Angled
  • With Glare
  • Wrinkled
  • In Shadow
  • Incomplete
  • Dense
  • In Low Light

With customized scanning parameters, application developers can read damaged barcodes easily, significantly improving barcode recognition accuracy and decoding rate. Manual human reviews can be eliminated to cut costs and streamline processes.
