The KDC8 software decoder fills the gap between low-quality free barcode decoding software and professional-quality barcode scanners by utilizing the Honeywell SwiftDecoderTM software with your smart device’s built-in camera.

Although the SwiftDecoder software on your smartphone or tablet may be slightly slower and less convenient than using a dedicated barcode scanner, this solution is much more cost-effective. Combining the power of the KDC SDK with SwiftDecoder provides seamless integration between software and hardware-based scanning technology.

Features & Benefits


More Reliable

Uses the same decoding technology found in Honeywell barcode scanners worldwide that more quickly and reliably scan millions of barcodes

Faster Barcode Scanning

Helps to expedite the scanning process and minimize errors and delays.

More Accurate

Capable of aggressive and more accurate reading, reducing errors by minimizing barcode misreads.

Omni-directional

True 360° omni-directionality enhances ease-of-use and enables successful first-pass read.

Effectively Reads Poor Quality Barcodes

Able to more quickly recognize and correct 1D and 2D barcode defects that can make scanning difficult, helping to expedite processing time


Additional Information



Preconfigured integration with the latest camera APIs for Android
One button scanning achievable via Samsung Knox (Available on select models including the XCover Pro)
Flexible “plug-in” architecture allows developers to customize the display and capture of user inputs during scanning
One-time license authentication: Simplifies the digital licensing process.

Fast

The software decoder offers swift performance with fast decode times which helps facilitate the scanning process and minimize errors and delays. High-speed scanning situations such as mail, document, and package sorting are supported via automatic mode. In fast-paced environments, the software decoder is at least 20% faster in motion tolerance than competitive enterprise software products.

Reliable

By leveraging the same technology deployed in leading retail and industrial barcode scanners, the software decoder delivers quick and reliable scans. Additionally, the software decoder is omnidirectional so scans can be made in any direction, even upside-down.

Accurate

This highly accurate software decoder lessens the risk of costly errors by minimizing barcode misreads associated with other decoders. High accuracy scanning is achieved through the use of unique patented algorithms.

Versatile

This software decoder reads a wide range of barcode symbologies used today in both consumer and enterprise applications including postal codes and will be regularly updated with new symbologies as they are introduced to the market. In addition to the ability to decode barcode symbologies, the software decoder goes beyond the barcode, offering augmented reality, OCR, driver’s license verification, and document/signature capturing.
