Scanners for the ticketing industry

Millions of tickets are being scanned every day. Opticon’s barcode readers for the ticketing industry can help you scan the barcodes for access control, parking tickets, medical documents and even machine readable codes on travel documents like passports and identity cards. Opticon’s scanning solutions consist of a range of scanners that are optimized for any working environment or document type.

Access control through scanning

Digital ticket scanning is a commonly used authentication method to gain entrance to facilities and events. Scanning the barcode confirms the receipt of payment or the validity of subscription. Tickets for trade shows, concerts and other events are usually ordered online, and a 1D or 2D barcode is provided via e-mail or printout. Mobile ticketing lets people use digital tickets on their mobile phones. These tickets can be scanned by 2D imagers. These Opticon 2D barcode readers allow fast and accurate scanning of hard to read mobile screens. In addition to that damaged barcodes are harder to read, this can easily happen with printed barcodes. Opticon’s high quality decoders can read even heavily damaged barcodes.

Mobile ticketing reduces costs, increases efficiency and provides insight into stored data, which in turn provides traceable input for visitor management reports. Opticon’s mobile computers are the all in one rugged solution for the access control market. Opticon’s companion scanners are small, compact scanners that can work stand alone as a data collector or connected via Bluetooth to a central data server. Opticon companion scanners equipped with Bluetooth collect and update data and monitor visitor behaviour for market research. Visitor data can then be made available to the business staff. Opticon scanning solutions provide a real-time connection, increased efficiency, reduced labour expense and traceable input for visitor management reporting.

Medical documents

Barcodes are being used more and more for medical documents as well. QR codes can be used to quickly access medical test results. Our mobile computers can access secure databases to check if someone is fit to access the facility or event. Barcodes are also used to access digital prescription lists and vaccine passports. The ability quickly to check vaccination passports with the use of accurate barcode readers will reduce waiting time and increase comfort for travelers or visitors. The special anti-microbial coatings make it easy to clean and disinfect the scanners without the risk of damaging them. Tourism, business travel, health checks for accessing facilities and live events are all examples of uses for Opticon’s fast and accurate barcode readers. 

Covid passports are also being used around the world. This generally works via an app that generates a QR code. This barcode can be easily read by Opticon’s 2D barcode scanners. Our mobile computers offer a rugged all in one solution for checking these covid passports. Quick and accurate scanning of the vaccine passports by Opticon barcode readers can help to provide a easier and safer travel experience during medical emergencies like the covid-19 pandemic.
