We have developed a solution using the ability to cascade multiple area scan cameras together to read bulk 2d codes. Using cutting edge 2d code reading algorithms and specialized pre-processors.
This solution was developed for the liquor bottling industry for traceability of the liquor supply chain. With the QInspect Software from Qualitas Technologies, you can configure the camera layouts (tiled horizontally or vertically) as well as specify regions of interest within which you would expect the 2d codes. The decoding uses a fast 2d matrix decode algorithm able to read even the tiniest of codes across the entire Field Of View.
