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
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
which allows additional data to be encoded by dividing the data into
multiple symbols, as well as
PDF, which decreases the horizontal size of the symbol by two columns.

Advanced PDF417 Font Design
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,
This PDF417 font uses IDAutomation Vertical Interleaved
Technology™ to provide 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, PDF417 barcodes generated with a 600 DPI LaserJet at
4 points will yield consistent scans with a
PDF417 Barcode Scanner. The font should be printed at 8 to 10 points
for most applications.
Multiple Encoders Provided
Using a font or graphic encoder is necessary due of 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 font and graphic encoders
for maximum application flexibility. The following chart summarizes how each type of encoder
