Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK v6.0 Improves Barcode Scanning Speed by 50 Percent

The Updated Algorithm in Dynamsoft Barcode Reader 6.0 Also Improves Barcode Reading Accuracy While New Scan Templates Are Designed to Optimize Performance for Specific Workplace Scenarios

VANCOUVER - April 09, 2018

Dynamsoft has updated its Barcode Reader Software Development Kit with an updated algorithm that has improved barcode scanning speed by an average of 50 percent while also improving upon barcode reading accuracy. The updated SDK also now allows the use of customizable barcode reader templates for developers to further optimize performance for specific workplace scenarios. The new Barcode Reader SDK is version 6.0.

The increase in speed performance is based on many Dynamsoft image set tests. Scanning of 1D and 2D barcodes in a four-core CPU environment were used to conduct testing and to produce an average speed. The increased performance in this major update comes from many algorithm improvements. New algorithms were added for barcode localization on photo images and for text filtering on document images. Also, the algorithms for barcode decoding were revamped.

For the new custom barcode reading template, developers can use it to create flexible barcode scanning templates for specific use cases. There are currently two pre-set templates: Doc Mode and Photo Mode. These optimized templates ensure better performance depending on your scan scenario. There is also an option to create custom templates to specify parameters including barcode format, source image type, max barcode count, localization mode, and more.

Supported developer platforms include Windows® (C, C++, .NET, ActiveX, JavaScript), Linux® (C/C++), iOS® (Objective-C), and Android® (Java®). Supported 1D barcodes, or linear barcodes, include Code 39, Code 128, Code 93, Codabar, Interleaved 2 of 5, Industrial 2 of 5, EAN-13, EAN-8, UPC-A, UPC-E. Supported 2D barcodes include QR code, Datamatrix, and PDF417. There are also Mac and Raspberry Pi editions available as Labs projects.
