Recommended bar code symbology

Do you have any information about which bar codes and settings have the highest detection rates?


Specifically our scenario is that we have people send faxes with bar codes we generate on the front page. In this situation there are slight distortion to the bard codes and the detection rate has never been approaching 100%.

We tried putting more than one bar code type on the page, but that seems to have decreased detection rate. Are there some recommendations you have for your library as to the specific symbology to use for faxes?

Thank you.

Hi Micheal,


Please accept my apologies for the delayed response.

I believe 2D barcode symbologies with error correction will have better recognition rate. I can recommend you DataMatrix right now but it would be more appropriate if you can share what type of data do you want to encode and what would be its maximum length.

Normally, faxed images have poor quality and more noise than other images. So it would be an ideal situation if you can achieve 100% recognition rate from them.
