Why SmartCodeDrivers?

When combined with TechnoRiverStudio, SmartCodeDrivers unleash the high-speed printing capabilities of thermal printers and optimize label printing performance. The advantages as follows :
  • Print a large number of serialized labels without having to send additional data after the first label.
  • Print labels using the printer's built-in barcodes and fonts using simple text strings commands instead of the software having to send bitmap images.
  • Use of native Printer's Control Language to describe where objects should appear, how they should look and where actual data should be inserted in the specified locations.
  • Cache repeated images at the start of the print job to maximize printing performance and minimize network bandwidth of sending the same image to each label.
  • RFID encoding.

Full Printer Features Support

Other than optimization capabilities, TechnoRiver's SmartCodeDrivers bring out the ease of configuring the thermal printers. Different printer options such as Cutter, Ribbon, Back Feed and Media Adjustments are supported with a windows user interface.

RFID Support

RFID can be thought of simply as a type of electronic bar code. It does not have the requirement of an uninterrupted line-of-sight between the label and the human or machine reader. Using TechnoRiverStudio with SmartCodeDrivers allows extremely high ease of use for RFID. Simply drag and drop an RFID encoding from the unique One-Touch object Toolbox of TechnoRiverStudio.
