Nextcode Launches Barcode Scanning Application
From Chron.com Nextcode launches ConnexTo Enterprise
Nextcode, a leader in optical barcode solutions for camera phones, announced the launch of ConnexTo(tm) Enterprise. ConnexTo lets businesses easily deploy robust mobile barcode-scanning applications that use standard camera phones to optically read bar codes.
"With ConnexTo Enterprise, we help companies turn camera phones into powerful tools to capture data, connect to information, and solve business problems."
ConnexTo requires no special optics, image resolution, or additional hardware. It can be loaded and run on camera phones right out of the box. (Could this solve one of the physical world connection obstacles?)
Beyond supporting traditional barcode formats, ConnexTo uses Nextcode's patent-pending mCode(tm) technology, specifically designed for camera phone applications.
mCode and the ConnexTo.com services are already used to create and read 2D barcodes that provide rapid access to WAP addresses, SMS messages, contact information and auto-dial phone numbers.
Nextcode supports the following formats:
• UPC A
• UPC E
• EAN/JAN 8
• EAN/JAN 13
• Code 128
• QR Code
