The Black Ice Data Matrix Barcode SDK/ActiveX toolkit allows developers to add 2D Data Matrix writing and reading to their applications. The Black Ice DataMatrix Barcode SDK/ActiveX toolkit is a robust and efficient 2D DataMatrix barcode library for reading/decoding, searching barcodes, and detecting barcode orientation. Developers can read/detect barcodes regardless of orientation, skewing or flipping. Barcodes can be detected and read from specific areas of interest. When combined with additional Black Ice Imaging toolkits, barcodes can be read from a variety of supported image file formats and can be acquired from scanners or digital cameras.

DataMatrix barcodes can store large amounts of data in a small symbol, up to a maximum 3,116 Digits or 2,335 ASCII characters. Unlike linear (1D) barcodes, which are typically used to store a record or account number which then must be retrieved from a database in order to get additional information, DataMatrix barcode symbols can typically store all of the information associated with a particular record. This way, using DataMatrix barcodes, developers can eliminate database information retrieval, and can simply read all account details from the DataMatrix barcode symbol itself.

Using the Structured Append feature, developers can link up to 16 data matrices logically to each other.

Barcode

UNICODE file name support

UNICODE file name support ensures the usability of foreign languages and special characters in the filenames when using the Black Ice Barcode SDKs.

64 bit support

The Black Ice Barcode SDKs include 64 bit support from Version 6.00. 64 bit support ensures that the benefits of 64-bit hardware is fully obtained.

Some typical uses for DataMatrix Barcodes include:

Document Imaging

Documents with a DataMatrix symbols do not require OCR processing, all the information is available from the barcode symbol.

Fax Reports

Create reports with DataMatrix barcode symbols and fax them to a central station. Built in error correction ensures that there is no data loss and a Data Matrix barcode symbol is smaller than the text itself, so fax transmission is quicker

Medical

Eliminate database lookup by adding DataMatrix symbols with all of the details to a specimen or drug.

Warehouse Processing

A label on a box details the contents.
