Abstract:Barcodes are a familiar data-carrying mark printed onto physical items such as packaging, labels, magazines, etc. Many consumers, retailers, and distributors are routinely reading them with their mobile devices. We introduce the four-dimensional Progressive Barcode which is a printed mark that does not take up more real estate as it is used to advance a workflow. Adding progressive information to a barcode allows it to change through time—supporting many different information lifecycles.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
