You can encode either a link to a website, a message to a friend, or your contact details. Then turn the information into a mobile barcode, one that can be printed on stationery, advertising or packaging, a t-shirt, or even built into a website or a Facebook page – and read by an i-nigma enabled mobile device.
Creating a mobile barcode is easy. Select what kind of barcode you want to create (QR Code or Data Matrix), then type in the web address (URL) or text you want to encode, and watch the mobile barcode being created, instantly. When you’re finished, give it a title, and then scan, print or save it.
The following requirements must be followed to ensure your mobile barcode will work effectively:
Barcode size – Minimum 2cm x 2cm. At this size, a barcode can hold up to 60 characters. The barcode size increases as data contained within the barcode increases.
White space surrounding the barcode – for best results, we suggest at least 4mm. of white space around the barcode. Need to illustrate this with graphics.
Scanning distance – A 2cm x 2cm barcode can be scanned from 10cm away. To scan over further distances you will need a larger barcode.
Display surface – For optimal results, it is recommended to display the barcode on a flat surface.
Medium – barcodes can be displayed on a variety of mediums including newspapers, magazines, packaging, posters, plasma/LCD screens, T-shirts and business cards.
