bcWebcam - 2D codes and your PC

Whilst 2D barcodes is mostly targeted at mobile tagging with your camera enabled phone the technology is equally useful for webcams.

bcWebcam is a piece of freeware that allows you to use your existing webcam to read many barcode standards.

This is ideal for home and small businesses and if the technology is adopted by Government to enhance form processing the forms can be processed with little to no additional cost.

There is a software development kit available that allows a developer to integrate the camera output with an application.  This could be automating a user interface or creating an XML integration point.
