Digital Barcode Verification and Data Validation for GS1 Databar Coupon Barcodes

Digital Barcode Verification and Data Validation for GS1 Databar Coupon Barcodes

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 11, 2008 -

In today's digital world, quality control for barcode symbols is challenging. It is crucial for users throughout print production to be able to validate and check the quality of digital barcode files. The EPS Validator website will display the barcode language, encoded data, sizing, and bar width adjustment of any bar code file (.eps) created from Bar Code Graphics' GS1 certified application (PrecisionCode). The EPS Validator allows manufacturers, ad agencies, printers and graphic designers the ability to confirm that the appropriate barcode is being utilized and avoid costly errors.

For GS1 Databar Coupon barcodes, the "EPS Validator" will also provide an instant breakdown of the complex coupon data string. Since this type of bar code contains an extraordinary amount of data and does not display all the encoded characters in human readable form, the "EPS Validators" expanded functionality is an invaluable proofing tool. A sample screenshot is available at .

"This new advancement provides a quality control step which was unfortunately forsaken when barcode origination migrated from photographic film (film masters) to electronic files," said Andrew Verb, President. "Currently all significant barcode evaluation is done after a barcode symbol has been printed, and this powerful resource will help save money by catching potential mistakes before printing occurs."

The EPS Validator is web based and requires no additional software installation. Users simply need to upload a provided digital barcode and the results are displayed instantly. Furthermore, subscriptions are not required so anyone involved in a barcode print job can easily check provided digital barcode files for free.
