We have developed a compact, high-readability POS scanner which uses a new type of holographic technology. We call this technology the "holo-window". The holo-window is capable of changing the scan direction and collecting the signal light. While compaction of current scanners would decrease their readability, these features enable the optical system of a scanner featuring the holo-window be made compact while maintaining high readability. Using the holo-window, we have developed a new scanner which has a letter-size footprint and is only 8 cm high.
