Data Matrix is our SIMS compatible School Data Service. Many schools now require a Capita SIMS disc, which is a CD containing specially formatted images of pupils. These low-resolution BMP images contain hidden data (Exif) which relates to each child. The school will typically update their SIMS photos once per year, after school photography day. The schools rely upon the photographer to provide this CD in specialised format.
The technology needed to embed personal data within photographs on a large scale operation is not easy; at Dadfords, we offer a service to assist photographers achieve this. Our service allows you to shoot in a traditional format without the need for any additional equipment, such as expensive scanners. Post-photography Dadfords can process the your data and embedded each pupils information within their image, before converting to a SIMS compatible format.
