Scandit, a developer of software-based barcode scanning solutions for smartphones, tablets, and wearable devices, has announced the release of Barcode Scanner SDK 5.2, which includes a new premium feature called MatrixScan that enables users of any camera-equipped device to locate, track and decode multiple barcodes at once. Scandit’s new release is available for iOS, Android, Windows and other supported platforms.
MatrixScan provides a multitude of new use cases that increase the efficiency and convenience of data capture processes. For example, users seeking a specific product among multiple parcels can quickly 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.
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, such as receiving entire pallets with a single scan or capturing all codes on a shipping label.
Samuel Mueller, CEO of Scandit, said, “Barcode Scanner SDK 5.2 provides a powerful productivity boost for our users. 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 threefold.”
