Dynamsoft Corp., a developer of scanner programming libraries and JavaScript webcam plug-ins, has upgraded the barcode reader add-in for its latest Dynamic .NET TWAIN software development kit (SDK), version 4.3, to improve its overall performance. Barcode reader performance (1D or 2D) is improved from 50 to 300 percent compared to previous versions. Barcode recognition accuracy has also been improved.
The larger the barcode image, the more pronounced the improved performance of the barcode reader. Also, the SDK now allows developers to use zone optical character recognition (OCR) on scanned / captured documents. The Dynamic .NET TWAIN SDK enables a simpler development path for applications to capture images from most imaging devices for sale or in use. The SDK has built-in webcam support. It also supports TWAIN, WIA and UVC application programming interfaces (API). These features and more practically eliminate worries related to ensuring device compatibility. Extension features include image editing and uploading capabilities to allow post-capture processing in WinForm, WPF or other .NET applications.
“Barcodes continue to grow in popularity and as this happens it becomes important that developers be able to leverage their advantages,” said Amy Gu, Vice President of Dynamsoft.  “Accurate barcode recognition is critical, regardless of the size of the barcode. Dynamic .NET TWAIN’s latest barcode add-in address these performance needs.”
Dynamic .NET TWAIN is based on Microsoft’s .NET framework and the TWAIN library is optimized for use in C# and Visual Basic .NET. Customizable scanning configurations include, ADF; duplex; resolution; pixel type, and more. Multiple support channels are provided for the SDK, including email, live chat, forum and phone.
