Dynamsoft Enhances its Barcode Reader Kit to Perform Cross-Platform

Dynamsoft is updating its Barcode Reader Software Development Kit to enable cross-browser and cross-platform online barcode scanning.

The update allows the solution to run on pure JavaScript API Edition, based on WebAssembly, empowering developers with new conveniences for users.

Users can scan barcodes in real-time from a browser using their smartphone without requiring an app download.

There’s also no need to capture an image and send it to a server for reading. This saves bandwidth and improves efficiency. In many cases, businesses use a browser-based system for pre-defined workflows.

The new JavaScript barcode reader supports real-time localization and decoding of various 1D and 2D barcodes from static images.

It also supports decoding from a camera’s video live stream whether from desktops, tablets, or mobile devices. This includes from device-independent bitmap (DIB) formats which can be obtained from cameras or scanners.

Scanning can be accomplished for multiple barcodes at a time. The new barcode reader web API enables developers to implement browser-based barcode reading across varying computing devices.

Barcode Reader v6.4 also adds 2D barcode symbology support for Aztec Code, which is widely used in the transport business such as for airline tickets.
