Barcode Compatibility

Barcoded tickets are ubiquitous in the travel, hospitality, sports and events industries. When read by a high-performing barcode ticket scanner, they enable high volumes of people to be processed efficiently. Whether presented on printed or electronic media, HID ticket readers and validators quickly and reliably read all popular 2D barcode symbologies used in ticketing, including:

QR Barcodes

QR codes are commonly used for public transport tickets, event and venue tickets, corporate access control and also in the payment industry.

PDF417 Barcodes

The airline industry uses the PDF417 barcode for paper boarding passes for the Bar Coded Boarding Pass (BCBP) standard.

Aztec Barcodes

The Aztec code is used as a standard by the airline industry for electronic boarding passes and by the public transportation industry for tickets.
