Recently we announced that our upcoming Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK v3.0.0 will support PDF417 barcode scanning for the iOS and Android platforms, and today we’re going to look at these unique barcodes, and discuss their characteristics and uses. Here’s an example of a what a PDF417 barocde looks like:
-Error Detection and Error Correction
-Data storage up to 1.1 Kilobytes
-Public domain format
-“Linking” to other codes for use cases with large data storage requirements
Using the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK, mobile developers will be able to support a large variety of new use cases for iOS and Android devices involving identification cards, shipping labels and conference badges. Our beta release of PDF417 scanning is already available to developers! You can get started today by signing up for our free Enterprise Edition Trial.
