NEWARK, Calif., June 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Socket Mobile,
Inc. (NASDAQ: SCKT), a leading provider of data capture and
delivery solutions designed to enhance workplace productivity, is
excited to announce that its entire family of barcode scanners
offer out-of-the-box support for applications designed to
facilitate EU Digital COVID Certificates.
On May 20th, the
European Commission announced a "provisional political agreement
between the European Parliament and the Council on
the Regulation governing the EU Digital COVID Certificate."
The Certificate will facilitate travel within EU borders by
providing information such as vaccination, test and recovery status
via a digitally signed QR code. To encourage a timely roll-out, the
Commission will provide member states with open-source reference
software. EU member states will then develop their own applications
to issue certificates and scan and check QR codes.
"Socket Mobile's data capture hardware and Capture SDK support
the needs of developers as they build the highly capable,
transparent and secure applications EU member states and citizens
require. As the EU reopens, Socket Mobile is well-prepared to
support a safe, easy and efficient transition back to normal," says
Dave Holmes, Chief Business Officer
at Socket Mobile.
The Capture SDK has the additional benefit of helping to
future-proof apps as data capture needs change. With one
Capture SDK implementation, app developers can utilize bar code
scanners, contactless NFC reader/writers, or both. Developers
should visit Socket Mobile's Developer Portal at
https://www.socketmobile.com/developers for the SDK,
sample code, and other tools and reference materials to help with
The regulation governing the EU Digital COVID Certificate are
set to go into effect on July 1,
