Anyline 26 Release - Getting Better All the Time: Introducing ‘Over the Air’ Improvements to Anyline

Getting Better All the Time: Introducing ‘Over the Air’ Improvements to Anyline

Our latest release unlocks a huge selection of new features and capabilities for our user base. From our new barcode scanner to our growing list of supported ID types, there is something for everyone in Anyline 26.

‘Over the Air’ Accuracy Improvements

In our most recent updates, we’ve introduced many new features, including the new ‘Universal ID’ and US Driving License scan functions to our demo app. But until now, getting the most up-to-date improvements meant downloading a new update every month.

To make life easier, we’re introducing ‘over the air’ (OTA) deployment. With this new feature, you just need to refresh the app by pulling down on the page and it will automatically download the accuracy improvements! For this release, OTA will work for our ID products, with further integration coming down the line soon.

Find out more about OTA in our documentation.

Try out the Best in Barcode Scanning

Two weeks ago, we launched our new ‘best in class’ barcode scanner, and it’s already taking the world by storm! From retail to last-mile delivery, healthcare and more, the combination of barcode scanning with our versatile range of OCR solutions helps our customers stand out from the crowd.

Now you can easily test it out for yourself on our demo app for Android! For our iOS users, we are working adding this improvement shortly, and will integrate it in the next release.

Dozens of New Driver’s Licenses Added

We’ve been adding dozens of new IDs to our roster over the past few releases, and Anyline 26 is no different! Here are some of the new additions:

Newly supported United States Driver’s Licenses:
Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas

Newly supported EU Driver’s Licenses:
Croatia, Estonia, Finland, Ireland, Norway, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland

Take a look at our full list of supported countries & regions.

Our Most Accurate and Robust Meter Reader

Our partnerships with industry leaders in utility oil and gas enable us to address some of the biggest challenges faced when collecting meter readings. In this latest release, we’ve made it easier than ever, while also improving scan accuracy across the board for analog and digital meters.

Firstly, we have improved comma detection for digital meters, which can easily be missed or misread. We’ve also improved result accuracy for scans taken from further away, and made it possible to get accurate results from wider angles of up to 30-40 degrees – perfect for when you cannot get a direct view of a meter due to its location.

Lastly, since meters are often found outside, and can be subject to inhospitable weather, we have improved the accuracy of readings from meters which are dirty or soiled.

Minimum File Size for Maximum Efficiency

With all these new features, it would be quite normal for our SDK to be getting a bit heavier in size. As we have been optimizing Anyline 26 for further reduced file size, you’ll find that our SDK is even smaller than before.

By removing the Tesseract library from our engine to reduce the SDK’s binary size, the integration of mobile data capture into many environments is easier than ever before.
