PDF417 Barcode Font and Encoder Features

"IDAutomation offered the only product on the market that could produce AAMVA PDF417 barcodes correctly." - Bryan Kaplan, Collaborative Fusion, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA

Approximately 850 characters can be dependably encoded and read with the PDF417 barcode symbology. High barcode area efficiency means that large amounts of text and data can be stored in a PDF417 barcode. Because the 2D PDF417 font uses Reed Solomon error correction, it can withstand some damage without loss of data. This high-level error correction results in a decrease of PDF417 barcode read errors and is far more advanced than linear barcodes, which use check digits.

PDF417 Barcode Types Supported

In addition to PDF417, this package supports MacroPDF, which allows additional data to be encoded by dividing the data into multiple symbols, as well as Truncated PDF, which decreases the horizontal size of the symbol by two columns. MicroPDF417 is similar to PDF417, although it is only provided in a limited selection of IDAutomation's products.

Advanced PDF417 Font Design

"The PDF417 Barcode Font & Encoder was an excellent choice for integration into our application! We are using it with Crystal Reports and it worked with the very first badge we tried." - Barry Rogers, Air & Waste Management Association, Pittsburgh, PA

This PDF417 font uses IDAutomation Vertical Interleaved Technology™ to provide improved performance and printing at a smaller X dimension than competitor's products. The design of the font allows accurate printing from any point size when used with compatible scanners and printers. For example, PDF417 barcodes generated with a 600 DPI LaserJet at 4 points will yield consistent scans with a 2D PDF417 Barcode Scanner. The font should be printed at 8 to 10 points for most applications.

Multiple Encoders Provided

PDF417 Font Encoders

Using a font or graphic encoder is necessary due to the complexity of the PDF417 symbology. Font encoders return a special text string, which will create a readable PDF417 barcode when combined with the appropriate PDF417 font. The PDF417 Barcode Font Encoder for Windows Tutorial provides steps to accomplish this task. This includes a variety of different fonts and graphic encoders for maximum application flexibility.  The following chart summarizes how each type of encoder works:
