  • Page 51: Decoding

    Decoding The Dolphin terminal supports two types of image decoding: full-area imaging and Advanced Linear Decoding (ALD). Full-area Imaging Full-area imaging means that the Dolphin terminal support omni-directional aiming, which means that a positive read can be obtained from many positions. For details, see Directional Scanning Positions ALD provides fast reading of linear (1D) and stacked linear bar codes (e.g., PDF417).
  • Page 52 Omni-Directional Scanning Dolphin terminals support omni-directional scanning. In general, the aiming pattern or beam is smaller when the terminal is held closer to the bar code and larger when farther from the bar code. Symbologies with smaller bars or elements (mil size) should be read closer to the terminal whereas larger bars or elements (mil size) should be read farther from the terminal.
  • Page 53: Capturing Images

    Capturing Images The image-capture process is an intuitive, split-second operation for experienced users. By following basic guidelines, however, new users can easily develop their own technique and, with practice, quickly learn to adapt to different application environments. Image Preview When the imaging process is initiated, the screen displays a preview of the object. This is a live video image of what the imager is currently viewing and has a slightly degraded appearance compared to the captured image.
