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

New Features



  • Added support for extracting information in Arabic script for several documents.

  • ID Capture now supports capturing information from the following new document types:

    • The Visual Inspection Zone (VIZ) and the Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) of passports

    • The visa number from a US Visa

    • Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) of APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) Business Travel Cards

    • Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) of the following documents issued by the People’s Republic of China: One-Way Permits to Hong Kong/Macau, Mainland Travel Permit for Hong Kong & Macau Residents (港澳居民來往內地通行證), Mainland Travel Permit for Taiwan Residents (台灣居民來往大陸通行證), Exit-Entry Permit for Travelling to and from Hong Kong and Macau (往来港澳通行证), and Exit-Entry Permit for Travelling to and from Taiwan (往来台灣通行证)

  • ID Capture has been expanded with a range of new features: * Added CapturedId.age and CapturedId.isExpired * Added IdCaptureSettings.anonymizationMode, to remove sensitive data from images, result fields or both * Added the two callbacks IdCaptureListener.didTimedOut() and IdCaptureAdvancedListener.didTimedOut() which are invoked whenever a document is localized, but could not be captured within a period of time * It is now possible to run basic authenticity checks on VIZ & MRZ documents by comparing the data from the VIZ with the data decoded from the MRZ. Check VizMrzComparisonVerifier for details. This feature is currently in beta, and may still change significantly in the next releases

Performance Improvements


  • Improved performance when a lot of symbologies are enabled when using BarcodeCapture.

  • Added support for Code128 with damaged end patterns (missing, fused or covered bars). This support is automatically disabled if “strict mode” is selected.

  • Improved QR code reader robustness for medium to large codes with small local deformations (e.g. crumpling, bending) or damage.

  • Improved responsiveness of AR overlays in MatrixScan and Barcode Selection.

Bug Fixes


  • Fixed the issue where the overlay for SparkScan stayed visible when it shouldn’t have.


  • Fixed multiple issues where it was sometimes not possible to scan barcodes from AAMVA driver’s licenses.

  • Fixed an issue where it was not possible to scan certain Vietnamese passports.

  • Fixed an issue where it was sometimes not possible to scan a barcode from a Pennsylvania driver’s license.

  • Fixed an issue that caused a failure of the AamvaVizBarcodeComparisonVerifier for valid IDs.

  • Fixed an issue where scanning MRZ documents in ID Capture incorrectly displayed dates for year 2000.
