KDC8 on Xcover Pro

KDC8 Software Decoder

The KDC8 software decoder fills the gap between low-quality free barcode decoding software and professional-quality barcode scanners by utilizing the Honeywell SwiftDecoder software with your smart device’s built-in camera. Although the SwiftDecoder software on your smartphone or tablet may be slightly slower and less convenient than using a dedicated barcode scanner, this solution is much more cost-effective. Combining the power of the KDC SDK with SwiftDecoder provides seamless integration between software and hardware-based scanning technology.


Uses the same decoding technology found in Honeywell barcode scanners worldwide that more quickly and reliably scan millions of barcodes.

Faster Barcode Scanning

Helps to expedite the scanning process and minimize errors and delays.

More Accurate

Capable of aggressive and more accurate reading, reducing errors by minimizing barcode misreads.

Effectively Reads Poor Quality Barcodes

Able to more quickly recognize and correct 1D and 2D barcode defects that can make scanning difficult, helping to expedite processing time.


True 360° omni-directionality enhances ease-of- use and enables successful first-pass read.

Additional Information:

  • Preconfigured integration with the latest camera APIs (iOS, Android)
  • Flexible “plug-in” architecture allows developers to customize the display and capture of user inputs during scanning. 
  • One-time license authentication to simply the digital licensing process.
