See also the System Requirements of the Scandit Data Capture SDK across all platforms.

New Features

Barcode

  • The Parser has been expanded to support the IATA bar Coded Boarding Pass (BCBP). ParserDataFormat.IATA_BCBP supports the latest specifications from the 2023-2024 Passenger Services Conference Resolution Manual (PSCRM). For the complete documentation of the standard please refer to the official website.

  • SparkScan has been updated with some UI improvements:

    • The minimized trigger button has been redesigned to occupy less space when the scanner is stopped

    • The expanded trigger button has been slightly decreased in size, to leave more space to the underlying application

    • The setting toolbar shows by default less options (Target Mode and Torch), to offer a less crowded and more efficient user experience. The visibility of all the icons can still be personalized in the SparkScanView

  • Added BarcodeGenerator.upcaBarcodeGeneratorBuilder() to generate UPCA barcodes.

  • Added QR symbology extension called strict to suppress rare QR reader false positives. strict reduces the scan robustness of damaged codes.

  • Introduced smart battery management to lower the energy consumption and increase the up-time of the device. In our tests (repeatedly scanning a sequence of 5 different labels mimicking the user movement), this led to an improvement of up to 15% in battery life. This option is disabled by default, but it is possible to enabled it via BarcodeCaptureSettings.batterySavingMode, deciding whether it’s automatic, always on or always off (default).
