Scandit Launches MatrixScan, a First of its Kind Scanning and AR Tracking Capability
MatrixScan enables users to perform receiving, item handling and search and find more than three times faster
San Francisco, CA and Zurich, Switzerland – April 4, 2017 – Scandit, developer of leading software-based barcode scanning solutions for smartphones, tablets, and wearable devices, today announced the release of Barcode Scanner SDK 5.2 for iOS, Android, Windows and other supported platforms. Available on April 6, 2017, this latest iteration 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 Barcode Scanner SDK 5.2 is being demonstrated in Scandit’s booth (#S3560) at ProMat 2017 on April 3-6, 2017 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.
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 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.
Our batch scanning capability allows users to scan multiple packages in a single sequence. 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.
Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK 5.2 provides supply chain, retail, and manufacturing enterprises with the speed and performance necessary to replace dedicated barcode scanners and mobile computers with more flexible and cost-effective mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and wearables. This results in equivalent or improved scanning performance on a smart device at a fraction of the total cost of ownership (TCO) of traditional scanners.
“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.”
