An imager scanner functions more like a digital camera than a laser scanner, and is capable of reading two-dimensional symbologies. Rather than bouncing a read laser beam, the imager barcode scanner essentially takes a picture of the barcode, which it then analyzes. Unlike a laser
, the imager does not need the barcode to be oriented in any specific way to read it, making scanning faster and easier. Imager scanners can still read standard one-dimensional codes as well as two-dimensional and stacked codes. Some imager readers can even capture actual photo images of the barcodes. Imager barcode scanners are the perfect solution for anyone looking to future proof their scanning options, which includes reading off of smartphones, and improve general scanning performance.
