Outstanding Performance, Innovation, and Manageability

Zebra is introducing a new, 2D, general-purpose handheld portfolio that meets the needs of customers, regardless of application or price-point. A new standard in general purpose hand-held imagers has emerged. With the fastest scanning performance in its class, innovative new features to empower workers at the point-of-sale, and Zebra’s exceptional manageability tools, the DS8100 series separates itself from other imagers. It is well-suited for those who place a high value on improving productivity at the point-of-sale, and creating a more satisfying checkout experience for their customers.

Innovative Features of the DS8100 Series Include:
Outstanding performance on virtually every barcode in any condition
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.

Exceptional Scan Range
A scanning range of 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 register.

Power to scan continuously for 24 hours
No matter how busy a store is, with Zebra's exclusive PowerPrecision+ smart battery in the cordless DS8178, workers will have the power they need for the busiest shift. Scanning devices are always available—no need for charging during the business day.

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 imager's field of view, enabling faster checkout and easier self-checkout.
* Available April 2017

Capture multiple barcodes with one press of the scan trigger 
Multi-code Data Formatting (MDF) provides the ability to capture multiple barcodes, and transmit only those required in the precise order the application requires.
