Welcome to the Viziotix news. These are the latest updates about the company, events, new releases, new product features, and more.
Last week, we had the pleasure of working with Teledyne E2V on their stand at the Stuttgart Vision 22 Show. Teledyne showcased the incredible performance of the new Optimom 2M module with Viziotix's barcode scanning SDK. Many thanks to Marie-Charlotte Leclerc, Romain Guiguet and the Teledyne E2V team for integrating us into their demo. You can try our barcode demos and test our SDKs here.
Lighting-fast barcode scanning software is a game-changer for logistics and industry. Read the latest article in Logistics Business about how Viziotix is powering item tracking along the logistics chain.
Working on generic hardware, Viziotix barcode decoding software enables OEMs and app developers to build solutions to track items from orders, through distribution, to delivery. Expert software reads barcodes such as Code 128, Data Matrix and QR Codes on smartphones, gate-readers, conveyors and robotics.
The software is exceptional at reading multiple barcodes per image and the rapid scanning of large, hi-res, image files - and therefore ideal for automation.
The powerful Viziotix Barcode Software Scanner is now available for Android devices. The Android SDK can be downloaded for testing via the Download Free Trial link on our website. Watch this space for new versions and increased support for other platforms.
The GS1 Sunrise 2027 initiative is adding 2D barcodes to retail consumer packaging. In some cases, 2D matrix barcodes will replace the well known 1D UPC/EAN barcodes. This will impact OEMs of Barcode Scanners & Point of Sale Equipment, Retail Stores and Consumer Packaged Goods companies. Read more about this major change for barcodes in retail in our White Paper.
The link for a 30-day Free Trial of our expert barcode scanning SDK and Demo App is now live on our website. Test our performance on your robot, drone and smart-device images. Click on the ‘Free Trial’ button in the page menu above and start scanning.
Some retail stores are freeing up their staff and letting robots do the hard work in retail shelf-management. Powerful barcode scanning SDKs, cameras and Linux platforms make it possible. Read more in this Retail Brew article.
Robotics Place is a cluster of companies in the robotics space with the mission to stimulate research, unify partners and develop solutions. Early discussions with Robotics Place were instrumental to us setting up Viziotix and we are excited to now be an official member. We look forward to collaborating with Robotics Place, and the members, to advance and optimize our computer-vision and barcode scanning software for robotics and automation applications.
See Robotics Place announcement for more information.
Software barcode scanning is now clearly a viable alternative to hardware barcode readers.
Up until recently, the core of any barcode scanning system has always been a fixed barcode scanner, handheld reader or barcode scan engine (module). These dedicated devices are often large and expensive. They are also difficult to integrate and network into more complex solutions.
We are talking to companies that have already adopted or have started to see the benefits of camera scanning with barcode software. The camera choice is huge, ranging from tiny, inexpensive camera modules (as found in smartphones), to USB cameras and up to standard industrial cameras. Unlike most barcode readers, these cameras are often based on the latest, high-resolution CMOS sensors and offer the ability to capture wide areas with large depths of field in low light – particularly useful when you need to scan pallet locations or capture many barcodes at the same time. Industrial cameras with 20MP resolution are readily available for instance.
Further, our contacts confirm that using these cameras usually means a significant cost saving over dedicated barcode readers and a better project ROI. As an example, we are powering the doks. innovation GmbH warehouse inventory robot and drone application (Inventairy - shown) which features an onboard high-resolution camera.
Let us know if you want to know more about using standard cameras with barcode software!
We are proud to announce the offical founding of Viziotix! The company is now created and registered as an SAS under French law. Let's get in touch! We can't wait to show you what Viziotix can do for your business and applications.
