Data Matrix is a space-efficient two-dimensional bar code symbology that is made up of square modules. According to AIM, this amazing symbology of Data Matrix could encode up to 2335 alphanumeric characters, or 1556 characters of 8-bit byte data, or 3116 digits of numeric data.(*) Data Matrix could encode virtually everyting including ASCII character, extended characters, unicode characters and binaries.

The default character interpretation in Data Matrix for character values 0 to 127 shall conform to ANSI X3.4.
The default character interpretation in Data Matrix for character values 128 to 255 shall conform to ISO 8859-1: Latin Alphabet No.1.

Morovia Data Matrix Font is a smart and simple solution to generate Data Matrix Barcode. It's able to create size-adjustable Data Matrix barcode.

Morovia Data Matrix Font encoder is able to take non-printable character input. Slash plus its 3-digit ASCII value represents the correspondng character in Morovia Data Matrix encoder.
For example, \005 represents the character of ENQ in Morovia Data Matrix encoder; \127 represents the character of DEL; while \232 will be considered to be FNC1 character by Morovia Data Matrix encoder.

If a user wants to encode slash and a 3-digit number in Morovia Data Matrix font, he or she will have to type in double slash "\\" and digits.

Morovia Data Matrix Font use ECC 200 error correction level. Therefore, Reed-Solomon algorithm is applied by Morovia Data Matrix Font for error checking and correcting purpose. Data Matrix Symbol have an even number of rows and columns. Not including quiet zone, Data Matrix symbols are either squares or rectangles with sizes ranging from 10 x 10 to 144 x 144. ECC 200 has 24 square and 6 rectangular different data matrix symbol configuration. The size and shape may be specified by a user to suit the requirement of the data matrix application.

Considering the data capacity of Data Matrix symbol, a human readable interpretation is not practical.

The data may be encoded using any combination of 6 different encodation schemes of Data Matrix symbology:
ASCII, C40, Text, Base256, X12, or EDIFACT.
ASCII encodation scheme is the basic scheme of Data Matrix. So, ASCII encodation is invoked prior to any other encodation scheme. And all other encodation schemes will return to this scheme in Data Matrix.
C40 scheme encodes primarily upper-case alphanumeric data. Text scheme encodes primarily lower-case alphanumeric data. X12 scheme encodes primarily ANSI X12 EDI data set. EDIFACT scheme encodes ASCII characters ranging from 32 to 94. Base 256 scheme encodes all byte values ranging from 0 to 255.

A user may specify preferred Data Matrix encodation scheme. Otherwise, automatic encodation scheme will be applied
by Morovia Data Matrix encoder, so that the shortest codeword stream will be produced.

In order to print Data Matrix symbol using Morovia Data Matrix Font, a user will have to use Morovia Data Matrix encoder to encode data and copy the returned codewords string to a word processor. After applying Morovia Data Matrix Font to it, data matrix barcode symbol will appear.

Fully supports Crystal Reports: A user can print DataMatrix symbol in Crystal Reports.
Supports MS Office: Word Mail-Merge

* Data Matrix symbols with more than 800 characters might be hard to scan.

And, Datamatrix has been selected by the United States Department of Defense as the 2-D barcode symbology to be used with their UID (Universal IDentification) initiative.
