Overview

Media Vision BarCode contains two submodules:
* Detection submodule, * Generation submodule.

Detection submodule can be used for detecting barcodes on image sources, reading encoded messages, getting barcode types.
This module contains mv_barcode_detect() function and mv_barcode_detected_cb() callback. mv_barcode_detect() function can be called for the image determined by mv_source_h handler to detect barcodes. If barcodes were detected, then mv_barcode_detected_cb() callback is called. Each detected barcode type, message and location can be processed by this callback. mv_barcode_detect() supports ROI (rectangular region of interest) specification to allow barcode detection only for the region on the image.

Generation submodule can be used for generating the barcodes and QR codes. Different encoding types (see mv_barcode_qr_mode_e), error correction codes (see mv_barcode_qr_ecc_e) and code versions are supported for QRCodes.
This submodule contains mv_barcode_generate_source() function to generate handler to the buffer with row image of barcode, and mv_barcode_generate_image() function to generate image file with barcode. Both functions support the set of parameters which allow API user to configure output barcode. QR codes as well as Barcodes are supported (see mv_barcode_type_e enumeration for full list of supported barcodes). For QR codes it is possible to specify error correction code and encoding mode (see mv_barcode_qr_mode_e). Generation to file supports several formats (see mv_barcode_image_format_e).
