Advanced barcode automatization

Areas of bar-code  CC Capture integration:

  • Operator authentication/sign-in
  • Task selection 
  • Job name 
  • Customer ID

In order to help Capture recognize destination for various kinds of barcode data, a simple prefix has to be added.

Barcodes can help work faster and error-free. Most of the barcode automatization is built-in to CC Capture. When working in Print Inspector downloaded PDF control-strip will contain a unique Data-Matrix barcode for task selection.  Also, the Operator may download his/her personal QR code from Capture (click on operator name in the top-right corner to access it)

 We recommend performing three simple exercises to learn how to.


Automatic Job description in pre-press workflow

Most of the RIPs on the market can automatically print Job Name/Job ID. Replacing regular font with barcode font can be a tricky solution. In this case, we recommend using hybrid fonts that are human-readable.
