2D barcodes require a specific type of scanner called a 2D Imager in order to be read. The standard 1D scanner is only capable of reading horizontally across the barcode, whereas a 2D imager analyzes the entire barcode as a whole, allowing it to read and decode both horizontally and vertically organized information at the same time.
