Code to Launch the CR4300, a Revolutionary Barcode Reader for iPod® at NRF

Share Article

The CR4300 takes the camera from an iPod® and combines it with a patented optical platform and world-class decoding software to create a user-friendly, high-performance barcode reader.


“The CR4300 is not like other hardware or software barcode scanning solutions on the market today.” says Code’s director of Product Management, John Deal.

Code announces the release of the CR4300, the newest offering in its expanding mobility product line. The CR4300 case transforms an iPod® into an enterprise-grade data capture device without the size, weight, expense and power draw of a traditional scan engine module.

By eliminating the scan engine module, the CR4300 is a departure from traditional barcode reader sleds. It combines the iPod camera with a patent-pending optical platform and 2D Revolution™, Code’s world-class decoding software, to create a user-friendly, high-performance barcode reader. By adding these capabilities to a popular consumer device, the CR4300 gives businesses a streamlined barcode scanner with the ability to run apps on an interface that is familiar to both developers and users.

“The CR4300 is not like other hardware or software barcode scanning solutions on the market today.” says Code’s director of Product Management, John Deal. “While it lacks the bulk of extra scanning hardware, it doesn’t lack the intuitiveness. Users are given a bright targeting bar and integrated scan buttons to easily find and read barcodes without looking at the iPod screen.”

Additional product features in the CR4300 include: a 3,000 mAh back-up battery to keep the iPod charged and running on long shifts; lightweight design, totaling just 10.1 oz. with the iPod and battery included; durable, disinfectant-ready case built for harsh environments like healthcare; built-in gauge to keep users informed of battery status; quick charging via USB or multi-bay drop-in charger; unencumbered access to all native iPod functions, including the camera.

See the CR4300 in action in booth 537 at the National Retail Federation Annual Convention & Expo, in New York City, New York, January 15-17, 2017.
