Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK v5.2 for Linux Adds APIs and Algorithms to Improve Speed

The New APIs and Algorithms Also Improve Accuracy in Barcode Decoding for Improved Workflow Efficiency

VANCOUVER – December 25, 2017

Dynamsoft has updated the Linux Edition of its Barcode Reader software development kit (SDK) to version 5.2, adding application programming interfaces (API) and algorithms to improve barcode scan speed and accuracy.

The new version added new APIs that enable you to specify parameters, including page numbers, barcode regions, barcode width, barcode height, barcode module size and barcode angles for faster barcode recognition. These capabilities help software engineers improve barcode reading efficiency. Also, a new de-blur algorithm was added for 1D barcodes to improve accuracy when scanning linear barcodes from out-of-focus or blurred images. And, new multi-thread processing was also added to improve scanning accuracy and speed of 1D and PDF417 barcodes. Finally, Dynamsoft added the ImageCaptureDevice API for application designers to set the capture device – such as a scanner, camera or fax – for barcode scanning. When set, it will use more appropriate image processing techniques for the images captured from that device to optimize barcode decoding.

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.
