Scandit announced the release of Barcode Scanner SDK 5.2 for iOS, Android, Windows and other supported platforms.
Available on April 6 this year, this latest iteration includes a new feature called MatrixScan that enables users of any camera-equipped device to locate, track and decode multiple barcodes at once.
According to the company, MatrixScan provides a multitude of new use cases that increase the efficiency and convenience of data capture processes. For example, users seeking to find a specific product among many similar boxes can search and find the desired item. The mobile scanning device localizes and decodes all barcodes in the frame and then highlights codes matching search criteria. An augmented reality feature can superimpose product information, such as product images, on physical goods.
“Our batch scanning capability allows users to scan multiple packages in a single sequence,” Scandit said. “The MatrixScan user interface shows the users which barcodes have been successfully captured and which ones still need to be scanned. Other potential use cases for Scandit’s MatrixScan include simultaneous capture of multiple codes on a form or label, e.g., receiving entire pallets with a single scan or capturing all codes on a shipping label.”
“Barcode Scanner SDK 5.2 provides a powerful productivity boost for our users,” said Samuel Mueller, CEO of Scandit. “With MatrixScan’s ability to capture an entire set of barcodes in a single scan sequence and provide product information through augmented reality, users can expect to increase scanning speed by more than 3X.”
