Honeywell adds Digimarc barcode capabilities to handheld scanners

Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC) said that safety and productivity solutions provider Honeywell has added Digimarc Barcode scanning capabilities to its Xenonâ„¢ 1902 handheld scanners to increase store efficiency and customer satisfaction and to decrease risk of injury to cashiers.

Digimarc Barcode is a unique, imperceptible data carrier that is repeated across the design of a package, and contains the same Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) information found in traditional UPC barcodes. Because it is essentially invisible to the human eye, the Digimarc Barcode does not take up any space and retains visual aesthetics of the package.

Digimarc, based in Beaverton, Oregon, is the inventor of the Digimarc Discover® software featuring the imperceptible Digimarc Barcodes for automatically identifying and interacting with virtually any media.
