With SDA, it’s easy to empower all mobile phone and tablet applications with enterprise-quality 1-D/2-D bar code scanning — no dedicated scan engine required. Designed for consumer applications, SDA provides the same industry-leading algorithms used in all Zebra hardware decoders. Your customers can count on first-time every-time rapid scanning — even if bar codes are damaged, scratched or poorly printed on paper labels or displayed on a screen. Hyper-resolution technology provides a wider scanning range and easy capture of small bar codes. With omnidirectional scanning, users never need to align the bar code with the device. And with enterprise-class scanning accuracy, you no longer need to worry about erroneous decodes that can lead frustrated users to mistrust and abandon your application.
Until now, delivering enterprise-class bar code scanning required a device with a dedicated scan engine. SDA removes that limitation, allowing you to provide your customers with a high-quality bar code scanning experience on their mobile phones and tablets that will exceed their expectations — and pave the way for high volume sales.
Since you only need one license per application, SDA allows you to cost-effectively add enteprise bar code scanning to your applications.
We can provide the help you need to get and keep your application up and running. Zebra’s engineering resources are ready to help you integrate our libraries into your applications. And just like all other Zebra software products, you’ll have access to the latest updates.
How does SDA work?
Camera images captured on the device are intercepted for further processing by the decoding libraries to isolate and extract any barcoding information. The decoded data is then dispatched to a scanning application.
