Dynamsoft has improved the speed and recognition accuracy of its barcode reader SDK by 20 percent for dense QR codes for applications including retail labels to personnel management and ID cards. Performance for 1D barcode reading from still images has also been slightly improved.
These dense QR code performance improvements are ideal for applications such as retail labels. They are also suitable for companies that use barcodes for capturing and maintaining staff contact details or ID cards.
By updating a database in place of physical assets, the barcodes remain up to date. This eliminates the need to reprint physical assets such as ID cards or business cards. The 1D barcode symbol is the most widely used type of barcode, Dynasoft said. They are often seen in grocery stores, pharmacies, retail stores, on products people regularly purchase.
‘Improving barcode performance is essential for applications that heavily rely on barcoding, such as inventory management, retail, warehousing, and more,’ said Amy Gu, CEO and co-founder of Dynamsoft. ‘Across hours of daily work and many employees, the performance increases Dynamsoft is making available can significantly improve company-wide productivity and workflows.’
The company has improved the performance of the boundary identification for DataMatrix codes. This is claimed to provide speed gains. And camera selection procedures in browsers on Android devices have also been streamlined. These updates and others were rolled out after v8.2, made available in March 2021.
