Aztec Barcode Overview

The IDAutomation Aztec Barcode Font and Encoder is a collection of components that generate Aztec barcode symbols with fonts and graphics.

Order Aztec Fonts now.Aztec is an area efficient two-dimensional (2D) barcode symbology capable of encoding large amounts of data. The data encoded may include alphabetic characters, numbers, text and actual bytes of data, including extended types, Unicode characters and small pictures. IDAutomation recommends limiting the data encoded in each symbol to 800 characters or less if possible because many barcode scanners do not decode large symbols.

The encoding and decoding process of the Aztec symbology is very complex. To print Aztec barcodes as a font, the encoded data must first be formatted with one of IDAutomation's Aztec Font Encoders. The encoder will return a text string, that when combined with the 2D font, will create a proper Aztec symbol. The example in Figure 1 encodes the text of "IDAUTOMATION Aztec Font and Encoder".

Figure 1.  Example of the 2-step process used to create Aztec symbols from a font.

Step 1: The "matrix" of characters is obtained from any of the Aztec Font Encoders: Step 2: The Aztec symbol is created by applying the 2D font to the matrix of characters:

Aztec Barcode Features

In addition to the advantages mentioned above, the following features are provided in this barcode font package:

  • The advanced Aztec font uses IDAutomation Vertical Interleaved Technology™, which allows increased throughput and printing at small X dimensions. For example, the IDAutomation SC7USB 2D Imager scans symbols printed with IDAutomation's Aztec barcode font as small as 3 points, which is an X dimension of .025CM or 10 mils.
  • Compatible with Crystal Reports 9 and above.
  • Custom tilde functions allow easy methods to encode tab and returns between fields in a single symbol.
  • The COM DLL was created in C++ ATL and has no dependencies.
  • The source code for any single encoder may be provided with the purchase of the Unlimited Developer License and a signed source code license agreement.
  • Multiple fonts are provided - When a license is purchased for this font, the customer will receive all versions in a single ZIP file. The manual is also supplied in a file named "readme" in the ZIP file. The following fonts are included:
    • TrueType fonts are supplied in PC and Mac format. The TrueType TTF fonts are compatible with Mac OSX and all versions of Microsoft Windows, including Pocket PC. Mac formatted MTT TrueType fonts are compatible with Macintosh Systems 7.1 and above.

Multiple Encoders Provided

Feature Comparison of Encoders Provided:

Multiple encoders provide more options for application integration. It is necessary to use an encoder because of the complexity of the symbols. IDAutomation provides both font encoders and graphic encoders in these packages. Font encoders return a text string, that when printed or displayed with the Aztec barcode font, create the Aztec symbol, as demonstrated in the Aztec Encoder Tutorial. The feature chart below lists the encoders provided with the software packages.
