What Are The Benefits to 2D Scanning?
Reads Damaged Barcodes:
2D barcodes use error-protection formulas that keep information intact when a printed barcode is scratched, ripped, or marked through.
Reads Both 1D & 2D Barcodes:
Linear scanners only read one-dimensional barcodes, but 2D barcode scanners read both types.
Stores More Data:
Linear (1D) barcodes store less than 25 alphanumeric characters, while 2D barcodes store thousands.
2D Barcodes Are Smaller:
Sometimes you simply don’t have enough space in which to stick linear codes.
You Can Read 2D Barcodes Upside Down:
2D scanners read 2D barcodes from any angle.
