3D Barcode Symbology

The 3D barcode symbologies are not like 3D cartoon or video. You cannot see the depth or back side of the image. Color is used to create the 3rd dimension. There are now all similar to QR codes. 3D tags are a type of 2D with more features. Microsoft tags can be a URL tag-access a web address, vCard Tag- address information, App Download Tag-download apps, Free Text Tag-open 1000 character text, or Dialer Tag-Dial a phone number on mobile device. The Microsoft also has a group of 2D tags that have similar actions in black and white. “Source Code”, the new Jacke Gyllenhall movie was released with a 3D Microsoft tag on it and interactive game. There are many things that can be done graphically with the the Microsoft 3D Tag.

In the future, there will still be 1D Barcode Symbologies used, due to low cost of hardware of readers, printers, and verification equipment. By printers, I am saying the cost of programming is cheaper. Although an inexpensive barcode printer can print 2D it is a little more difficult or expensive to program. Color and 3D will be used in commercial print, but it is pretty costly to implement in manufacturing today, since most industrial barcode printers are 1 color.


2D Symbology is really growing, UID for government has chosen Datamatrix as a standard, and the Drivers license and Wristbands are mostly PDF 417, to name a few. Many are predicting this trend to 2D and 3D will grow as the new standards will, so this is one you might want to get familiar with.
