Product Update: Reporting Services Barcode CRI

The designer and render DLLs provided are digitally signed and time-stamped with Authenticode certificates.

The new 2010 version now includes two separate installers for Reporting Services SQL Server 2005 and 2008. All the user needs to do is verify two directories and it will automatically copy the dll files to the necessary places and update the config files appropriately.

Hardware Update: IDAutomation Wireless Barcode Scanner

The new 2010 Wireless Class A BlueTooth Barcode Scanner can now scan barcodes up to 300 feet (approximately 100 meters) away from the cradle. Once the scanner is linked to the cradle, it transmits scanned barcodes via wireless radio to the cradle. The cradle connects to the computer via USB with keyboard emulation, so that any data scanned appears as if it had been typed at the cursor.
