GS1 barcode showing brackets when none should exist:

Older versions of GVD (before 5.4) only provided the decoded values in a HRI (human readable interpretation) .

Starting with GlobalVision desktop v5.4, the barcode inspection profile contains the option of choosing which format to display the decoded GS1 barcode, these options are:

HRI: Human Readable Interpretation

RAW: Displays the barcode as is (checksum and all)

Scanner: Formats it to be shown normally formatted by commercial-grade barcode scanners


Example:

HRI: (01)00763000283800(11)150122(10)0000000000

RAW: 010076300028380011150122100000000000

Scanner: <F1>010076300028380011150122100000000000
