The EZcode is 2D barcode symbology that was created specifically for the mobile camera phone in 2005. It has a simple, yet highly effective design which allows it to be read at a smaller size, by a higher number of mobile devices. Millions of EZcodes have been published around the world because of these unique benefits.
A EZcode is a matrix code (or two-dimensional bar code) created by ETH Zurich. It is a 2-dimensional code that was created and designed specifically for mobile camera phones because of its simplicity compared to other matrix codes.
An EZcode can be up to 20x less dense than other formats. So an EZcode can stay small and still be read by most camera phones. Here’s what happens when you take the same information and print it at the same physical size
