Hello. Our studio recently purchased an Entagged unit (Entagged M, specifically) along with an Opticon OPN-2006. The combo is working well in our trials so far.

We're strongly considering purchasing 4 or 5 more to be used on big shoots requiring multiple cameras. These cameras would be used in close proximity to each other. Theoretically, I wouldn't expect any issues with the devices' wireless signals interferring with each other, but just the same, has anyone else used several Entagged-equipped cameras with barcode readers in the same room together? Any issues?

Hi Wesley,

there's no issue at all with this, as each Entagged will have a unique pairing with a single scanner. It's just like your Bluetooth headphones don't suddenly connect to someone else's phone and you start hearing their music ;-)

The only thing you need to watch out for is that two photographers don't switch camera stations, but take their scanner with them. Or that they pick up the wrong scanner after a break. because then they'd be scanning happily, but the codes would be sent to the wrong camera!

Have you checked out our Name List feature? We don't have many customers still interested in barcode scanners since we launched this! ... name-list/
