THE ULTIMATE IN PERFORMANCE, INNOVATION AND MANAGEABILITYAs a retailer, you know the checkout experience is crucial - it's the last chance to leave your shoppers with a good impression. The quality of the checkout experience is heavily dependent upon the performance of the scanner you choose. If cashiers need to scan barcodes multiple times or enter unreadable barcodes manually, your checkout lanes can back up quickly, translating into long lines and long wait times. Cashiers are then forced to focus on ringing up merchandise instead of providing shoppers with a great in-store experience. Now, give every shopper the ultimate last impression with the DS8100 Series handheld imager, only from Zebra. The DS8100 Series rises above the conventional imagers to deliver unprecedented scanning performance on 1D and 2D barcodes, innovative productivity enhancing tools and unrivaled manageability to keep your checkout lines moving and your cashiers free to deliver a more personal checkout experience. The DS8100 Series - because when it comes to the checkout experience, only the best will do.UNPRECEDENTED PERFORMANCE INNOVATION BEYOND THE BARCODEUnparalleled Performance on Virtually Every Barcode in Any ConditionOnly the DS8100 Series combines the power of an 800 MHz microprocessor, a high-resolution megapixel sensor and Zebra's exclusive PRZM technology. With this unique combination of hardware and advanced algorithms, the DS8100 Series instantly captures the most problematic barcodes - including dense, poorly printed, crinkled, faded, distorted, dirty or damaged, as well as electronic barcodes on dimly lit displays. Superior Scan Range A scanning range up to 24 in./61 cm, a high resolution imaging sensor and a bright "aiming spot" improve checkout speed. Now, cashiers in busy checkout environments can easily scan items in a customer's shopping cart - without leaving the cash-wrap. Power to Scan Continuously for 24 HoursNo matter how busy your store is, with Zebra's exclusive PowerPrecision+ smart battery in the cordless DS8178, your workers will always have the power they need for the busiest shift. Your devices are always available - no need for charging during the business day. PRZM Intelligent ImagingOnly from Zebra, PRZM features reset the bar for imaging performance. Poor images are turned into instantly useful images for faster decoding. PRZM then handles some of the processing typically handled in the decoder to reduce power usage, improve battery cycle times and further increase decoding speed. Support for the Barcode of the Future - Digimarc®The DS8100 Series supports Digimarc digital watermark technology, which enables a barcode to be printed repeatedly over all surfaces of a product like wallpaper - yet remain completely invisible to the naked eye. Cashiers no longer need to locate and position a barcode in the field of view of the imager, enabling faster checkout and easier self-checkout. Capture Multiple Barcodes with One Press of the Scan TriggerMulti-code Data Formatting (MDF) provides the ability to capture multiple barcodes and transmit only those required in the precise order the application requires. Exclusive Battery Charge GaugeNo more guess work on the status of a battery at the start of a shift. The DS8178 is the only scanner in its class that makes it easy to see at a glance whether a battery needs to be replaced before the scanner is placed into service.
