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:

    • Added tablet and landscape support.

    • Improved barcode highlighting after a scan. The highlight of the barcode has been redesigned to be snappier and more clear:

      • Barcodes are highlighted as long as the preview is frozen.

      • A separate highlight is applied to barcodes when the error message is triggered (default colour is red).

    • Added an animation when trying to move the SparkScan trigger button above its vertical limit.

    • Added SparkScanViewSettings.TargetZoomFactorOut, SparkScanViewSettings.TargetZoomFactorIn and SparkScanView.ZoomSwitchControlVisible to control zoom in Target mode of SparkScanView.


  • IdCapture now supports capturing the information from the PDF417 barcode of a US Common Access Card.

Performance Improvements


  • Improved Aztec code scan performance for bent and crumpled codes which is especially important for Railway tickets.

  • Improved scan performance of up-side-down codes for 1D fixed-length symbologies (e.g. EAN/UPC).

  • Improved scan performance for long rectangular MicroQR (rMQR) codes with perspective distortion.

  • Reduced CPU usage when data-matrix is enabled by a factor of 3 in many situations.
