IC Barcode - Free High Speed Camera-based 1D and 2D Barcode-SDK

(January 21, 2016) - The Imaging Source, an international manufacturer of machine vision cameras, has just announced the release of its new software, IC Barcode for 1D and 2D barcode recognition.

IC Barcode is a highly accurate and powerful developer library, which recognizes 1D and 2D barcodes from single and live images. With only small changes in code, this SDK can integrate barcode recognition functionality into new or existing applications.

In a fraction of a second, the barcode recognition algorithm can search and analyze images with even multiple barcodes in any position and in any orientation. Comprehensive information for all detected barcodes (e.g. barcode type, data string, check digit etc.) is delivered with close to 100% reliability. IC Barcode is compatible with all cameras manufactured by The Imaging Source.

The following formats are supported by IC Barcode.
