Print the PDF417 barcode as a font - Compatible with Crystal Reports 9 and up - Uses IDAutomation Vertical Interleaved TechnologyTM - Provided with TrueType, OpenType, PCL and Postscript fonts - Includes signed ActiveX Control, Windows DLL, Java Library and .NET DLL.
Supports USS AIM PDF 417 specifications and MacroPDF.
Includes several encoders for compatibility with many applications and operating systems including Macintosh, Linux and Unix.
May be used with the Universal 2D Font, which creates several symbol types from a single font.
Large amounts of text and data can be stored efficiently when using the PDF417 barcode symbology. Because the PDF417 font uses Reed Solomon error correction, the symbol can withstand some damage without causing loss of data. This high level of error correction decreases chances of read errors and is far more advanced than one dimensional barcodes with check digits. Up to about 850 characters can be dependably encoded and read with the PDF417 barcode symbology.
Types of PDF 417 Supported:
In addition to the PDF 417 font, this package supports MacroPDF, which allows additional data to be encoded by dividing the data into multiple symbols and Truncated PDF, which decreases the horizontal size of the symbol by two columns. MicroPDF417 is similar to PDF 417, however, it is only provided in IDAutomation's RSS products.
Advanced Font Design:
This advanced PDF417 font uses IDAutomation Vertical Interleaved TechnologyTM which provides improved performance and printing at smaller X dimensions than competitors' products. The design of the font allows accurate printing from any point size when used with compatible scanners and printers. For example, when printed with a 600 DPI Laserjet at 4 points, the symbol consistently scans with the PDF417 CCD Scanner. The font should be printed at 8 to 10 points for most applications.
Multiple Encoders Provided:
Multiple encoders provide more application integration options. It is necessary to use an encoder because of the complexity of the symbology. In this package, IDAutomation provides font encoders and graphic encoders. Font encoders return a text string, that when printed or displayed with the PDF417 font, create the PDF417 barcode symbol.
Included in the Font and Encoder for Windows and the Font and Encoder Advantage Package:Font Encoders: Windows COM DLL, Crystal Reprots UFL
Graphic Encoders: ActiveX Control, Signed ActiveX CAB File
Graphic Encoders: .NET Forms Control, .NET Forms Control, ASP.NET Web Server Control, Java Applet and Servlet
