SMART TECH FOR SMART BUSINESSES.
Tagging photos with barcodes has long been standard in volume photography. Tethering both camera and scanner to a PC might have done the job, but it hasn’t adapted to the way professional photographers work today. Wired solutions by Fujifilm were discontinued years ago. Photographing QR codes is error-prone and requires reframing and refocusing after every shot. And some still resort down filenames by hand!
The ENTAGGED was developed to outperform all alternatives, in the simplest possible way. The tiny Bluetooth module, plugged into your Canon or Nikon DSLR, enables wireless barcode, QR code or RFID scanning directly in-camera, either with our app on your phone or with a wireless scanner.
The ENTAGGED works with your camera out of the box. No camera firmware upgrade necessary. Just run the free app, plug in the Bluetooth module and you’re good to go. It pairs within seconds and then always automatically reconnects whenever you switch on your camera.
All barcode data is saved into the photo’s EXIF data – the instant you press the shutter. The ENTAGGED sets the camera’s comment or copyright field and you can be 100% sure each following photo will be tagged. You can even double check on the camera.
The ENTAGGED module on the camera and the app (or scanner) connect via Bluetooth Low Energy. Enjoy a reliable connection without the restrictions of a tether, so you can fully focus on taking outstanding photos.
ENTAGGED: The Bluetooth Module.
The right choice for Canon and Nikon.
The ENTAGGED comes in four models with different plugs to optimally fit your camera. Nikon models come with a short cable to enable setting the comment field via USB. We reverse engineered the USB protocols down to the last detail, unlocking capabilities without needing to modify the camera’s firmware.
Characteristics of the ENTAGGED.
- In-camera barcode tagging: stored in comment or copyright EXIF fields.
- All photos barcode tagged until the next scan.
- Reliable Bluetooth Low Energy connection.
- Quick, automatic reconnection when switching camera on.
- No charging necessary, runs on minimal amount of camera battery power.
- Hot shoe stays free.
ENTAGGED: The App.
Native iOS and Android apps, camera based scan engine
The app is programmed natively for iOS and Android and uses built-in computer vision perfected by Apple and Google to scan barcodes and QR codes using the smartphone camera. It will scan from any surface, including smartphone or tablet displays.
The app will indicate a good scan and confirm the successful transmission of the scanned code, after writing to and reading back from the camera. So you can be 100% sure the codes will be saved in the next photos, before pressing the trigger. In case of a problem it immediately displays a warning, allowing you to take care of it and scan again before shooting – eliminating dreaded problems in post-production.
Easy configuration, great backup, always up to date.
If you prefer using a dedicated Bluetooth barcode scanner, you can easily pair it with the ENTAGGED using the app. Of course you can use the app as a handy backup, just in case. You’ll get firmware updates through the app and they’re installed wirelessly via Bluetooth – you’ll always stay up to date with bug fixes and new features.
Barcodes. Many kinds and Many styles.
Supports numeric and alphanumeric barcodes.
The ENTAGGED works with most types of barcodes. Whether you want to use a system that’s already in place (such as barcodes on tickets or product EAN/UPC codes) or you want to roll out your own – the ENTAGGED adapts to your requirements.
Supports 1D, 2D, RFID.
The ENTAGGED app supports 1D barcodes and 2D (QR) codes, and there are compatible Bluetooth scanners for 1D, 2D codes and even for RFID tags. You choose which fits perfectly to your specific use-case.
Software independent. Compatible with many, integratable with yours.
The ENTAGGED saves barcodes into the photo’s EXIF data. That way information can’t get lost when transferring photos between hard drives, software and platforms. It uses standard fields (Nikon: comment, Canon: copyright), so it’s compatible with common third party workflow software and online services. You can also easily implement support for the ENTAGGED in your own software – we’re happy to send you developer details.
