The integrated Barcode scanner tool in Capture One Enterprise will help you ensure that the assets are named and identified correctly as they are captured.
It is important to point out that the Barcode tool is intended to be used in conjunction with the Next Capture Naming tool. The scanned barcode ID needs to be inserted as a part of the image name created during capture. This is done by using the Barcode Token as a part of the naming structure in the Next Capture Naming tool.
This setup means that it is important to scan the Barcode before capturing the associated image. Otherwise, it cannot be applied automatically to the image name.
If you are using Capture One Enterprise on a Mac, you will have additional possibilities to use the Barcode string by taking advantage of Apple Script.
The Barcode scanner feature only supports scanners that can be set up with a prefix/suffix. This is needed for Capture One Enterprise to know precisely when the barcode text string starts and ends.
These Linear 1D barcodes are supported:
- Interleaved 2 of 5, Straight 2 of 5 industrial
- Code 39, Code 93, Code 128
- Matrix 2 of 5
Note that 2D barcodes (for example, a QR code) are not supported.
Supported Barcode scanners
The following barcode scanners have been tested to work correctly with Capture One Enterprise:
- Zebra Motorola Symbol LS2208
- Honeywell Xenon 1900
- Honeywell Xenon 1902g-bf
- Datalogic Gryphon I GD4130
Note that scanners that are not on this list might still work and that the list will be updated as more scanners are verified to work correctly. It is not possible to use multiple scanners at the same time. Only one scanner can be configured and used at a time.
