Barcode Development SDK Takes Recognition Accuracy to New Levels

Accusoft, the leading provider of document, content and imaging solutions, today announces enhancements to its Barcode Xpress software development kit (SDK) for adding barcode recognition capabilities to applications. Enhancements include a new binarizer algorithm, significantly improved handling of speckled barcodes, and more.

Using Barcode Xpress, developers can integrate the most accurate one-dimensional (1D) or two-dimensional (2D) barcode recognition with only a few lines of code, empowering their applications with the ability to detect, read and write more than 36 different 1D and 2D barcodes with unparalleled accuracy. Applications built with Barcode Xpress can scan more than 1,000 pages per minute while accurately locating and decoding multiple barcodes on each page. The SDK supports 32- and 64-bit .NET, ActiveX, Java and Java ME development environments.

Enhancements included in the free service pack released today include a new binarizer algorithm for superior accuracy when reading color and grayscale printed barcodes, plus improved recognition accuracy when reading 1D barcode images marred by printing defects such as white speckle noise. Also featured are performance improvements for the reading of PDF417 stacked linear barcodes, and improved detection of QR codes.

Accusoft offers another barcode SDK, Barcode Xpress Mobile, that enables developers to build mobile apps that tap the cameras in mobile devices to recognize a wide variety of 1D and 2D barcodes, including QR codes, UPC, postal codes, and now GS1 DataBar codes, all of which are also supported by Barcode Xpress.
