Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.16 Release Notes (January 23rd 2023)

See also the System Requirements of the Scandit Data Capture SDK across all platforms.

New Features

  • Increased the minimum iOS version to 13.0.

  • SparkScan is a camera-based solution for high-speed single scanning and scan-intensive workflows. It comes with a ready-to-use UI and can be integrated in any app without requiring app redesign or customization. For a complete overview, please refer to the guide on how to Get Started With SparkScan. In a nutshell it includes:

    • A large-sized floating scan button that users can drag up and down to position it in the most convenient place eliminating the need to look at the screen to trigger scanning

    • A quick access toolbar, which includes settings to control the scanning modes, the torch, the feedback and set the left-handed mode (where the entire UI is flipped to guarantee a better experience for left-handed users

    • A small camera preview screen, to have a visual confirmation while aiming at the code, placed in the top right corner - below the hardware phone camera

    • Multiple optimized and easily accessible scanning modes, to obtain the best scanning experience in different scenarios. Users can switch between single and continuous scanning modes, or access the target mode (preferred mode to scan at long range and in crowded scenarios).

    • Support for the volume button to act as a scan trigger.

  • Added support for Rectangular Micro QR Code (standardized in ISO/IEC 23941).

  • Added support for Composite Code flag parsing for GS1-128 (Code128).

  • Added misprint correction for UPCA/EAN13 barcodes for cases where wide bars were split into two thinner bars.

  • Updated the camera behavior to overcome the scanning challenges found on the iPhone 13 Pro (Max) and iPhone 14 Pro (Max) when using the built-in camera for barcode scanning. Our testing showed that barcodes that are less than 2 cm or ~1 inch in size (and usually have such small features) were impacted.

  • Added a callback “IdCaptureListener.OnIdCaptureTimedOut” invoked whenever a document is localized, but could not be captured within a period of time.

Performance Improvements

  • Improved decoding of QR codes with slight curvature.

  • Improved detection of full range Aztec codes with some perspective distortion.

Bug Fixes

  • Improved scanning of EAN-13 codes by reducing UPCE false positives inside EAN-13 rate to below 1%.

  • Reduced UPCE and EAN-8 false positive scans in non-barcode patterns to below 1% which nearly eliminates incidents of returning a scan when pointing camera to patterns that look like barcodes.

  • Fix the issue that calling IdCapture.Reset() led to decrease of performance when IdCaptureOverlay was used.
