Barcode and OCR Scan

This feature allows you to scan barcodes, QR codes and a string of characters (Optical Character Recognition, or OCR)

Barcode types: UPC-A, UPC-E, I2o5, Code 39, Code 128

QR Code types: QR, PDF417, Data Matrix, Direct Print Marking (DPM)

OCR (Optical Character Recognition aka Label Reader): Designed for Automotive VINs only

Barcode/OCR scan will be active for 30 seconds before timing out.

Upon successful Barcode/OCR scan, a purple pop up will appear. See next page.

Full functionality of the WiScope® or WiTorch® is still available after scanning a Barcode/OCR.

All photos/videos captured while purple pop up is on the screen will be tagged to that scanned Barcode/OCR.

You can track this unique scanned item in WiCollab® for as long as it’s stored in the Wi Cloud™.  

All assets (photos/videos) that have been tagged with a barcode/OCR scan will be identified in the assets Information page.
