Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK Adds DotCode and Vector PDF Barcode Decoding

Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK v7.4 DotCode Decoding is Ideal for High-Speed Production Lines. Other Updates Include Relative Region-of-Interest Decoding to Boost Speeds with Localization, and More

VANCOUVER – April 21, 2020 – Dynamsoft has added DotCode and Vector PDF barcode decoding in its Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK version 7.4. DotCode barcodes can be printed with inkjet or laser printing at speeds as fast as a thousand barcodes per second. This makes them ideal for high-speed production line applications like beverages and electronics.

In addition to adding DotCode barcode support, Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK v7.4 also now supports decoding barcodes from vector PDF files, to do so directly without the need to rasterize. This greatly speeds up PDF file decoding.

The new relative Region-of-Interest (ROI) features will also offer the opportunity for developers to speed performance. For example, if it's known a barcode will be located in a color zone that varies from other package colors, detection can be made faster. To boost the speed of localizing the barcode region, a developer can now preset the color value associated with where the barcode will be. This is ideal in environments from grocery stores to retail outlets.

The newly updated SDK now also boasts a clarity calculation and filter settings feature when in video mode. To increase the recognition rate, a clarity algorithm is used to sieve the low-quality video frames. So, only high-quality images are queued for decoding. Thus, decoding accuracy is improved when decoding barcodes from a live video stream.

Finally, the SDK introduces a handful of other optimizations. It now provides better deformation resistance of a QR code, an improved algorithm for large-size dense QR codes and DataMatrix, and for 1D barcode deblurring.
