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.
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
The Black Ice DataMatrix Barcode Reading SDK/ActiveX toolkit is written to be image toolkit independent, and can be used with any Black Ice imaging toolkit, such as the TIFF SDK/ActiveX , the Image SDK/ActiveX , or the Document Imaging SDK/ActiveX. The DataMatrix Barcode Reading SDK/ActiveX can also be used with any third party imaging platform.
The DataMatrix Barcode SDK/ActiveX contains a variety of sample applications, which demonstrate the capabilities and features of the toolkit. The product is fully .NET compatible and also provides sample source code written in C#, VB.NET, and J# to demonstrate the powerful document conversion options Details on using the DataMatrix Barcode samples
