Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.20 Release Notes (November 7, 2023)

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

New Features


  • SparkScan has been expanded with a range of new features and improvements:

    • Introduced a 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

    • Added a gesture to collapse the trigger button with a swipe from the setting toolbar to the edge of the screen

    • The setting toolbar icons have been slightly redesigned and grouped in categories

    • Added contextual messages within the trigger button, called toasts, to guide the user while interacting with the UI. For more information, check SparkScanToastSettings.


  • AamvaBarcodeVerifier now performs document verification entirely on-device. However, to use it, an additional artifact is now required. Check documentation for details.

  • For ID cards issued by the United Arab Emirates data parsed from the Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) is now returned automatically when IdDocumentType.IdCardVIZ and SupportedSides.FrontAndBack are selected.
