Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK Adds Decoding Support Ideal for Drug Label Packing Control and Telecommunications Equipment Inventory

Updated SDK Now Decodes Pharmacode Barcodes and Code 11 Ideal in Telecommunications. Also Adds Support for Better Decoding of Damaged QR Codes and Data Matrix Codes

VANCOUVER – March 28th, 2022

Dynamsoft has added barcode symbol decoding support for the Pharmacode barcode symbol primarily used in the pharmaceutical industry and code 11 typically used in the telecommunications industry. In addition, Dynamsoft has enabled application developers with new deformation resisting modes for better success when users scan warped or wrinkled QR codes or Data Matrix codes.

The new ability for Dynamsoft Barcode Reader to handle damaged QR codes and Data Matrix codes includes several modes. There is a broad warp mode to enable when barcodes are gently warped. Another mode handles deformations within local modules of a barcode symbol. Then there is another mode for wrinkled surfaces. Finally, there is an auto mode ideal when users might encounter many of these obstacles, and the SDK auto-applies the best mode. All these features are made to continue to improve upon decode accuracy and speed.

“Adding barcode symbol support for applications ideal in the pharmaceutical and telecommunications industries allows us to further address two large markets that can benefit from Dynamsoft’s enterprise-grade barcode reader SDK,” said Amy Gu, CEO and Co-Founder of Dynamsoft. “We will continue to improve on Dynamsoft Barcode Reader with added symbol support and performance optimizations. As such, in this latest version of the SDK, we also improved the read rate for the GS1 DataBar barcode used to label food products.”

About Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK

Dynamsoft provides its barcode reader SDK to developers to more rapidly and cost-effectively deploy business-critical applications that rely on dependable barcode technology. A demo and trial is available. With the SDK, developers can embed barcode reading functionality in a web, desktop or mobile application using just a few lines of code. This reduces development costs, saves project managers months of added development time, and significantly reduces long-term technical support resource needs and costs. The SDK supports various developer languages: Java, C++, C, .NET, Python, and JS.

The SDK offers built-in support for dozens of the most used barcode symbols. Optional enhanced modules are also available. One is to provide support for Direct Part Marking barcodes (DPM) where the symbol is marked, or etched, on an item for more industrial strength, like automotive parts, instead of a printed label. They require special capabilities to decode, often because of how they are used and elements in the field.

Another add-on module is Dynamsoft Panorama™ where a warehouse manager can receive a stitched image, from a collection of created images, of entire inventories, for a panoramic viewpoint of a warehouse situation, like missed barcode scans and their locations.

Finally, another module includes Intermediate Results Integration. This advanced and unique feature is not found in other barcode SDKs. With it, developers can access several data point results from the decoding process. These “intermediate image results” provide information that advanced users can employ in other workflows to improve efficiency or create new applications. There are many different types of intermediate image results produced in the process of decoding a barcode.

Pricing and Availability

Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK version 9.0 is now available for download from the Dynamsoft website, including a trial version. Pricing can be found at the website. Supported platforms include Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, and JavaScript. The SDK is provided with rich code samples. There are various technical support channels for the SDK, including email, chat, phone, an online knowledge base, and more.
